Families, Hikers and Active Vacationers: All benefit from the Joker Card!

#1 Special tours for hikers:

Saalbach Hinterglemm boasts around 400 km of marked hiking trails and paths. But that's not all: with the Saalbach Joker Card, an early ride on the Schattberg X-press (Monday to Friday, 7:30-7:40 am) carries you up to the starting point of the “Pinzgau Walk” (18 km, 650 vm) and the “7 Summits Tour” (24 km, 1,450 vm). These two challenging hikes, along with the “Home of Lässig Walk”, are part of the Saalbach Hiking Challenge.

Two theme trails that we highly recommend are the “Heilkräuterweg” (Medicinal Herb Path) and the Waldwellness-Weg (“Forest Wellness Path”), both located on the Reiterkogel. On the Waldwellness-Weg, you can treat yourself to a refreshing break amidst spruce, fir, and other trees. To recharge your batteries, order a picnic basket from the Reiteralm; stuffed with local specialties that taste particularly good when enjoyed on a picnic blanket in the fresh air, with views that are absolutely stunning.

#2 The best excursion destinations for families with the Joker Card

Vacationing with your family in Saalbach means one adventure after another. On the Kohlmais, kids get to help the clown Montelino find his lost laughter. On the Reiterkogel, they are tasked with return magic ingredients to the goblin Kodok, which were stolen by a troll! The marble runs on the Reiterkogel fascinate both young and old, at the wildlife feeding enclosure you can get up close to deer, and at the water playground, no T-shirt ever stays dry. Speaking of staying dry, water enthusiasts will love the Cap'n Hook Adventure Pool. With two water slides and a whitewater channel, it's the perfect place to cool off on hot summer days in Saalbach. Other “cool” excursion destinations that are free with the Joker Card include: mini golf in Saalbach and Hinterglemm, “Devil's Water” at the valley head, the many playgrounds on the mountains and in the valley, and the Kids' Hiking Challenge.

Meanwhile, rookie bikers and kids can gain their first biking experiences in the Learn to Ride Park and tackle 5 beginner trails on the Kohlmais (free of charge).

Bonus Partners: Our Top 5 Excursion Destinations in & around Saalbach Hinterglemm

#1 Golden Gate & Canopy Path

The 1 km long Canopy Path and the 200 m long Golden Gate offer a thrilling experience at dizzying heights for the whole family (in some places, the bridge is 42 meters above the ground!). Simply present your Joker Card for a discount on admission. This particular excursion destination is located at the valley head. The easiest way to get there from the parking lot is by hopping aboard the Valley Head Tractor Train (free with the Joker Card). Ideal in combination with a visit to Devil's Water and a refreshment stop at the Lindlingalm.

#2 Jump & Slide Park

Things get wild at the Jump & Slide Park, also located at the valley head. The 8 m high jump tower is not for the faint of heart, while the apt motto in the trampoline area and on the freestyle ramp is "higher, faster, farther." With the Joker Card, you will receive a discount on your visit to the Jump and Slide Park.  

#3 Grossglockner High Alpine Road

This 48 km long scenic road is one of Austria's most popular excursion destinations - and definitely not to be missed!

At 11 info stations, you will be able to learn interesting facts about the construction of this road as well as the flora and fauna of Hohe Tauern National Park. With the Saalbach Joker Card, you save around € 4.00 on the day ticket.

#4 TAUERN SPA Zell am See-Kaprun

Not just a hot tip for rainy weather! At TAUERN SPA, you can drift away, literally and figuratively, at 12 in- and outdoor pools, or sweat it out in one of 10 saunas. It's wonderfully relaxing! The little ones can let off steam in the Kidstein children's SPA, and the big ones can brave the 127 m long tube slide. With the Joker Card, you can splash around at the TAUERN SPA for 4 hours and only pay for the 3-hour ticket.  

#5 Pinzgau Milch

Do you want to take a piece of your Austria vacation home with you? Perhaps some spicy Pinzgauer beer cheese to conjure up Kasnock'n in your own home?
