This picturesque village of farmhouses on the Embach high plateau at 1,013m above sea level is located in the heart of Hohe Tauern National Park. A small ski region and cross-country ski trails are a real treat for winter sports enthusiasts. SalzburgerLand's popular ski areas are all within a radius of 40km.

Embach is a village of farmhouses, where you can experience an authentic country lifestyle first-hand. Whether in the ceramics workshop, on a tractor, out in the grain field, in the mill, in the bakery, and even in a schnapps distillery – guests are always encouraged to get actively involved and truly experience what daily life on a farm is all about.

One special highlight for all summer holidaymakers is a unique, 6 kilometers-long Mountain Golf attraction. Here, at 1,013 m above sea level, teeing off from a tractor or a horse-drawn sleigh, or putting your ball into a milk churn, you can combine a three-hour hike with a spot of golf. Along the route, three mountain inns serving popular local dishes provide all the refreshments you could wish for.

Equestrian fans, who would prefer to explore Embach on horseback, can pick up valuable tips from state-certified dressage rider Alexandra Langreiter, while the kids will have a delightful time enjoying a pony ride.

Traditional Herbalism

In the TEH-certified herb garden at the Hoadabauer farm, traditional local knowledge about the benefits of herbs is passed on to interested visitors during regular herb tours. During your walk through the herb garden, comfortable wooden benches invite you to stop and relax, plus you will also have the opportunity to enjoy a selection of tasty spreads and natural juices – produced, of course, from their own herbs

Wintersport in Embach/Lend

In winter, guests can’t resist heading out to enjoy leisurely strolls, snowshoe hikes and backcountry ski tours in pristine snow. A beautifully maintained network of cross-country ski trails leads XCers out to the pilgrimage chapel of Maria Elend – one of the oldest pilgrimage sites in the Pinzgau region. Located right in Embach itself is a small ski area with a tow- and a beginners’ lift – an ideal opportunity for your children to glide across the snow for the very first time. But more well-known ski regions, too, such as the Rauriser Hochalmbahnen, Gasteiner Bergbahnen, Hochkönig’s Winter Kingdom, Kitzsteinhorn Glacier Ski Area in Kaprun, the Schmittenhöhe in Zell am See and Skicircus Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn, are all easy to reach within a radius of just 40 kilometers.
