The small village of Viehhofen is nestled in the mountains in one of the most beautiful regions in Austria, located between the bustling tourist resorts of Zell am See - Kaprun and Saalbach Hinterglemm.

The idyllic village is surrounded by the mountains of the Upper Gernkogel (2,175 m) in the southwest, the Schmittenhöhe (1,965 m) in the southeast and the Sausteigen (1,912 m) in the northeast. All of these mountains belong to the “Pinzgauer Grass Mountains”, the highest grass mountains in Europe, which due to their height and nature are ideally suited for hiking in summer and skiing in winter.

From the peaks, there are impressive views to the imposing mountains in the Hohe Tauern National Park, including the Grossglockner, Austria's highest mountain.

Hiking in the Glemm valley

A mountain summit for everyone!

Only where you have reached by foot, have you really arrived. Therefore, we would especially recommend that you explore the surroundings of Viehhofen, as well as the Glemm valley in hiking boots. Enjoy the panoramic mountain views as well as the many smaller details of the landscape. The Pinzgauer grass mountains reach an altitude of nearly 2.000 m, attracting both easy-going hikers and ambitious summit stormers. When you eventually reach the summit, the landscape is luscious, with green rolling meadows. With a little effort, nearly every summit can be reached. On the way up to the summit, there are plenty of places to take a break, whether it be by a small, hidden mountain lake, or a stopover in one of the numerous Alpine huts.

Cycling and Mountain Biking

Great fun on two wheels

For mountain bikers, there is nothing better than reaching the highest point by bike and then freewheeling back down again. This dream is easily reached in the Glemm valley, for the majority of peaks can be reached by lift, as well as many mountain biking trails, making the Glemm valley a real biking Eldorado.

In recent years, the Glemm valley has developed into an internationally known mountain bike paradise, with numerous mountain bike trails as well as great bike parks in Leogang and Saalbach Hinterglemm. Many of the surrounding lifts operating in summer, can also be used for bike transport. The result being, you are able to reach the high mountain trails with little effort, before heading back down to the valley on two wheels on the most spectacular Freeride trails.

There is probably no greater sense of delight than a summit victory and the knowledge that you have made it to the top. As proof, an entry in the summit book is of course a "must". 

We have wooden hiking pins for all the busy summiteers. The hiking pins are made with love in Viehhofen. 

Get the summer information booklet from your landlord or at the Tourist Service Center and stamp your summit victories at Lochalmköpfl, Geierkogel, Sausteigen and Salersbachköpfl. The corresponding stamps are at each summit cross. Once you have climbed all the peaks and collected the stamps in the summer information booklet, we will reward you in the Tourist Service Center with the wooden hiking pin!
