Hüttau is nestled in the legendary Fritz Valley, together with the attached district of Niedernfritz. The Tennengebirge and Fritz Valley mountains, with stunning views of the Hochgründereck (1,827m), give the place its imposing framework of jagged peaks and gentle Alpine pastures. Hüttau is the ideal starting point for mountain hikes to the idyllic natural areas. In the winter months, the Ski Amadé region offers more than 270km of slopes for seemingly boundless winter fun. Thereafter, have fun and relax at the Spa Amadé.
Numerous attractions up close
Thanks to its central location, Hüttau is the ideal starting point to explore SalzburgerLand. The City of Salzburg, the Celtic town of Hallein , Hellbrunn Palace with its Zoo, the Silent Night town of Wagrain and further attractions are less than 30 minutes away. Additionally, the Fortress of Hohenwerfen and the Ice Caves are also very close. However, visitors should allow plenty of time for exploring the attractions in Hüttau itself.
The Mine in Hüttau
Above all, there is the show mine directly in the village. More than 100 years ago, precious copper was mined for the last time in Hüttau. In recent years, the mine has become a public show mine. Here you immerse yourself in a bygone world of mining and retrace the steps of the miners Hüttau. Together with the neighbouring villages of St Veit, Bischofshofen and Mühlbach am Hochkönig, Hüttau belongs to the Geo Park communities of the “Ore of the Alps”. Connected by the copper trail, interested people wander from town to town, from show mine to show mine, and along the way experience all sorts of excitement from bygone days. This valuable project was also recognised by UNESCO.
