Camping in the Alps: mountain hiking straight from the campsite

From the campsite gates, a multifaceted cross-border hiking area opens out across the Loferer mountains and Berchtesgaden Alps. Hike from one province to the next or even cross the border between Austria and Germany. Our location in the border region of Salzburg, Tyrol and Berchtesgaden makes this possible.

Vor allem die attraktiven Themen- und Erlebniswanderwege präsentieren die Besonderheiten der Region auf überaus spannende Weise: Jung & Alt können auf diesen Wanderwegen spielerisch die wunderbare Natur erleben und so richtig in die Geschichte unserer Gegend eintauchen.

We can highly recommend a hike to Strohwollner Canyon with your family, just a few minutes from the campsite. Discover the Salzburg Saalachtal and magnificent surroundings.
