A modern base station leads up to 8 person gondolas. For the summer season some fo them have had one seat removed so that mountain bikes can be carried with you. Alternatively bikes can be carried on an external arm. There is a mid-station but if you want to go all the way up you can stay in your gondola.

Ritzensee

Reviewed By RobADL - Adelaide, Australia

The Ritzensee is a beautiful little lake at the fringe of Saalfelden. A walk around the lake is definitely recommended because it gives you panoramic views in all directions. It also serves a a place to swim, but although it is said that the water quality is good, we were hesitant to go for a swim because the water looks quite murky. While in the area, one should also walk up to the Aussichtswarte. It gives you even more panoramic views in into all four Valleys and its surroundings.

Wallfahrtskirche Maria Alm

Reviewed By Judy P - Pleasantville, New York

This church sits right in the center of the beautiful town of Maria Alm. It is absolutely like a picture postcard. Although it is quaint and unadorned on the outside, the interior is surprising. Inside it is VERY ornate with gilding, mosaics, statues, etc... that would rival any Italian church. We were lucky enough to see a FREE string quartet concert in the church that was absolutely wonderful. Seats are original (OLD) and VERY uncomfortable however.

Reiterkogelbahn

Reviewed By Andy-S60 - Dunstable, Bedfordshire, England

The Joker card, included in our hotel rate, enabled into ride this for free. About 10 mins to the top station at 1,480m from where there are spectacular views, and a plethora of walks over the hills are available. It's a nice easy downhill walk back to Saalbach, about 90 minutes non stop, or longer if you stop, as we did, for a leisurely lunch at one of several establishments you pass on the way down. A great day's activity.

Lamprechtshoehle

Reviewed By Toemaarjongens - Amsterdam, The Netherlands

It always seems interesting to visit caves. This one is not your typical stalagmites etc, but it tells another story of flooding. Pretty cool inside. Lots of steps, because you go up higher. Gives a good impression of caving itself.

Bikepark Leogang

Reviewed By suwide - FFB

Very cool Bikepark with a variety of different trails and where each year the downhill championship is also held.
The difficulty ranges from Beginner to Expert. There are bikes to rent, a bike school, bagjumps, dirtpark, droplines, spaces for camping and showers. More advanced riders will even find huge tables, drops and gaps, step ups and downs and gnarly rocky sections.
Also recommended if you dont mind a bit climbing (500m) and pedal sections: the Big-5 Challenge.

Schattberg X-press

Reviewed By Crowley99 - Rustington, United Kingdom

Using the Schattberg x-press allows you get wonderful views of the area. Also it is a good starting place for some excellent walks.
Recommended walk - To Shattberg-west, then down to Hacklebergeralm via route 7 (wonderful food) and then down to Hinterglemm. About a 3 hour walk but well worth it.

The entrance is included in the Salzburgerland card.
Ride up the cable car one station and you are there. Lots of activities for the kids. A beautiful herb garden. Wonderful view. Good restaurant. We came for an hour and spent over three hours - and still had to drag the kids away.

Imkerei Hottl

Reviewed By CuriousSwede - Munich, Germany

We visited Imkerei (Beekeeper) Höttl after Reading about them in a hotel we stayed in near by. As we like honey and also are interested to know more about the process behind it we thought this would be a nice thing to do - but it was MUCH better than we had expected.
The couple running the place were both very welcoming and answered all our questions. It is not very big but very cosy, and the hives with the 'production bees' are not there, but there are some 'show production bee hives' there which is fully enough.
A few things to keep in mind if you plan a visit:
1) As we speak German I'm not sure how much information they provide in English, but if you understand any German and are the slightest interested then visit them. Maybe they'll provide feedback here over language possibilities.
2) They are only open two days/week (at least when we were there) so check the times, or call to make an appointment.
3) Make sure to see the film!! It was so interesting and informative.
I left with a new found respect of the bees and the honey. Simply amazing. But giving such a great review can be dangerous as it raises expectations, however, this is what we thought of the place, the atmosphere, the information - all excellent. There is also a shop where you can by their products.

Skigebiet Maria Alm - Hochkoenig

Reviewed By Maximilian H - Gothenburg, Sweden

Very nice ski area. We had been here at least 8 times. There are several lifts, nice cottages at the pistes to have a lunch or for apres-ski. My favorite is the Abergalm lift where you get on 1890 m :-)
