Climbers climb in the Pinzgau in the Salzburger Land


In the Pinzgau in Salzburg you can climb all year round

In the region around Hinterglemm you will find diverse climbing possibilities for sportsmen of every level, throughout the year. No matter if absolute beginner, pros or motivated children – everybody will find a suitable challenge here. 

Climbing has more and more become a mass sport in the past years. Not only fully trained extreme athletes venture into the rocky nature, but also recreational sportsmen, families and children succumb to the fascination of this unique sport. In the region around the Hotel Hasenauer in Hinterglemm, pros and advanced climbers as well as beginners find their climbing pleasure.

Climbing paradise: Leogang mountais, Lofer mountains, Waidring Steinplatte

One of the best-known and at the same time most diverse climbing regions of the Alps is the region around the Waidring Steinplatte as well as the Lofer and Leogang mountains. For beginners, advanced and pros, there is a nearly endless playground with more than 1,000 climbing routes in all difficulties. Here you experience outdoor climbing from its most interesting side. 

And those who are looking for alternatives for bad weather or winter and regard ice climbing as too ambitious find the right place all year round in the Felsenfest climbing hall.
