Salzburg's Saalachtal Holiday Region
In terms of size, Lofer is the smallest, but the most populous of the four villages. Due to its central location, Lofer is the centre of Saalach valley life. It is just under one hour from Salzburg. Mountain climbers and those looking for a challenging walk will find that the most beautiful Salzburg hiking and walking trails start in the Saalach valley.
Saalachtal amidst rugged mountains
Along the partially forested ridges and partially craggy peaks of the Loferer and Leogang Steinberg Mountains, you will find not only breath-taking views but also fascinating flora and fauna. Be inspired by the beauty around you as you take a break in a rustic Alpine hut to enjoy a hearty piece of Pinzgau beer cheese and enjoy the hospitality of the Saalach valley Alpine innkeepers.
Pistes & Powder Snow
In the winter, perfectly groomed pistes and limitless skiing in powdery snow awaits you. Skiing in the Salzburg Saalach valley pampers you with both luxuries.
Enjoy either the diverse pistes of the Lofer alpine meadows or the untouched powder-snow pistes in peaceful Heutal near Unken.
