The Salzburg Region
Maria Alm am Hochkonig is a beautiful village in the Salzburg region of Austria. The village church is the centre piece of a lovely traditional winter and summer resort. The surrounding mountains rise to 3,000m above sea level and create a stunning backdrop to some wonderfully quiet ski runs, and summer pastures. The nearby towns of Saalfelden and Zell am See are very popular for sight seeing and shopping, whilst the lakes can provide a refreshing swim in the summer. Salzburg is just 60mins drive for a great day out at the home of Mozart and the 'Sound of Music'.
Popular days out for the summer time.
* Hydro Electric Glacier Dams at Kaprun.
* Ice caves at Werfen.
* Salt Mines at Hallstat.
* Lakes at Konigsee.
* Bertchesgarten and the Eagles Nest.
* Krimml Waterfalls.
* The Grossglockner (Austrias highest mountain).
* White-Water Rafting.
* Mountain Biking.
* 4 Local Golf Courses within 30 mins drive.
The ski area make up a part of the Ski Amade area, that links with Bad Gastein, Wagrain, Flachau, Schladming and the Datchstein Glacier. The extremely modern lift system will keep the busiest skier happy for a week or more. The closest ski lift is just 150 yards from the front door, with 3 runs ending at the same spot. The local Skibus stops just outside the house, and is a short ride into either Maria Alm or Hinterthal.
The mountains provide a wonderful adventure playground for walkers and mountain bike enthusiasts. Hundreds of kilometres of well marked trails, with difficulties varying from the simple stroll up to the toughest of climbs. You can even take the chairlift up the mountain (bikes too). Another fun activity is the mountain toboggan run at Saalfelden. Take the chairlift to the top of the mountain, and ride Europes longest downhill summer toboggan run. Every Sunday and Tuesday evening throughout the summer in the centre of Maria Alm there is a free concert of traditional music and dance, a great place to relax and enjoy a drink.

"Roomy, comfortable and right by the gondola, what more could you ask for?"
We were delighted with Sunny Mountain, it was easily big enough for seven assorted adults and teenagers.
The family enjoyed the big kitchen, the wood burning stove, the comfy sofas, the full bath and the selection of games in the cupboards.
The gondola just 100m away gives access to 32km of continuous skiing (The Königstour) while the facing side of the valley has cleared trails for walkers, several rest stops plus a toboggan run. There could be more buses, so a car gives you access to an even wiser area including the glacier at Kaprun.
Not a place if you are looking for nightlife or wild Apres Ski, but there's a friendly bar in the gondola station, a nice restaurant in the hotel and a cosy hut next to the piste which catches the last sun of the day.

"Excellent place for family holidays"
We just wanted to find out how the Alps look in the summer... And we found an excellent place for family summer holidays. Charming Austrian village; affordable and delicious food in local restaurants; meticulously kept swimming pool with slides and water jets to cool during the hot days (and we had sun and 31 degrees for the whole week); plenty of attractions in the area (didn't see everything because the pool was too tempting); great mountain walks. The appartment very spacious and well equipped (true home from home).
Glad you had a great experience in the magical summer surroundings. We love the summer here just as much (if not more) as the winter. Best wishes.
