Summer holiday at Katschberg

The Katschberg region has a lot to offer all year round. In the summer months, extensive hiking trails, the lush green of the meadows & forests and rushing streams invite you to an extensive exploration tour. Located on the sunny side of the Alps, on the border between Carinthia and Salzburg province, the nature reserve with the surrounding adventure opportunities is the main attraction of the region. In addition to about 200 kilometers of diverse hiking trails, exciting adventures for young and old await on the Katschberg. With activities such as archery, bike tours or fishing and highlights that include summer tobogganing, treasure hunts or a visit to the Ponyalm, the whole family gets its money's worth.



On the border between Carinthia and Salzburg stretches the vacation region Katschberg Lieser-Maltatal, which combines the advantages of both provinces. Extensive nature, imposing mountains, a true potpourri of sports opportunities and active experiences as well as cultural events and regional specialties. Due to this wide range of offers and the hospitality of the locals, families with children feel just as comfortable as single travelers, couples or groups of friends. Among others, the region includes the Katschberghöhe with the valley town Rennweg am Katschberg, the nature reserve Pöllatal and the Lieser Maltatal, which is also home to the artist town Gmünd. On the Salzburg side lies the Lungau Biosphere Park.

During your summer vacation, the region is perfect for hiking and biking, but also for excursions to exciting places. With the KatschbergCard you get numerous discounts that make your discovery tour even more attractive. Worthwhile is, among other things, a ride on the summer toboggan run, a visit to the adventure park or the water adventure park around Carinthia's highest free-falling waterfall with 200m height. Those interested in culture will find numerous galleries and in show huts you can learn a lot about the traditional life on the alp.
