THE ACTIVITIES

The Austrian Alps are a playground for adults & children alike. Located in the Europa Sports region, the Landhaus Bergner Alm chalet offers the perfect base for anyone seeking an adventure. The abundance of activities in summer & winter leave no-one at a loss of what past-time to pursue. Whether that's hiking above 3,000m to the "Top of Salzburg" on the Kitzsteinhorn; gliding down 408km of groomed ski slopes and through alpine forests, or paddling in the crystal blue waters of Lake Zell, there's something that will surely make every soul sing.

SKI TOURING

SLEDGING

03

Winter holidays don't just mean skiing & snowboarding, why not try a bit of sledging too! Across from our chalet there is a 3km run totally reserved for sledging. Get picked up in a tractor & driven to the Kohlschnait Alm, where you'll be given your sledge as well as a complimentary schnapps drink. Prost!

What better way is there to cool off on a hot summer's day than to jump in to the waters of an alpine lake.
