Hiking holiday with the family in Altenmarkt-Zauchensee

Altenmarkt-Zauchensee is one of Austria's certified hiking villages and offers its guests a variety of hiking experiences at all altitudes. The vacation paradise in SalzburgerLand is particularly suitable for families who enjoy hiking. Special themed trails and guided hikes make hiking with children a real experience.

Take your children on an exciting journey of discovery in the breathtaking mountain landscape of Altenmarkt-Zauchensee. Themed trails, some of them well suited for off-road strollers (preferably with handbrake), lead you through the world of farming rules or the moon. Hiking with children also works great with a baby carrier. Hikes with baby carriers should last no more than 1.5 hours.
Important: Always dress your children in the stroller or carrier a little warmer than yourself.
