    Your Saalfelden Leogang Highlights

    Mountain Biking

    The Saalfelden Leogang region is one of Autria’s premier spots for mountain biking – more than 700 km of routes will have you spoilt for choice. Take the Matzalm Trail for a natural trail with rooty passages and some narrow bends, or visit the Epic Bike Park Leogang for downhill biking, a new 5000 m2 pumptrack, and some brand-new lines & trails suitable for beginners and experienced mountain bikers. This year, Saalfelden Leogang also plays host to both the UCI Mountain Bike Downhill World Championships and the Red Bull UCI Pump Track World Championships (4 - 6 September).

    From Jazz Festivals to Cattle Drives

    Saalfelden Leogang has carved out a niche as a cultural hot spot where the avant-garde meets the traditional. Its International Jazzfestival (August) is one of the biggest and best of its kind, and has spawned spin-offs like the 3 Days of Jazz in winter. At the same time, you’ll get to know the traditional Austria here, for instance when the cows return from their pastures in autumn – a truly joyous occasion that is duly celebrated.

    Asitz Mountain

    Take the Asitzbahn lift up to the so-called Senses Park at Asitz Mountain of Senses. This interactive area for all the senses is a playground for adults and children alike. Nearby, discover the Peaceful Waters installation, see the rugged mountaintops reflected in the reservoir, and just take a break on the sun terrace.

    Europe’s Last Hermitage

    Saalfelden is home to Europe’s last inhabited hermitage. When Saalfelden was looking to fill the vacant post of hermit in 2016, people from far-flung countries like Canada, Thailand and Australia applied. Today, you can visit this special place and, if you’re lucky, have a chat with the current hermit.
