the “Salzburger Summit game” – LISTEN TO WHAT THE MOUNTAINS HAVE TO SAY!
The “Salzburger Summit Game” turns mountain hiking into a playful encounter with nature. The challenge in each of the seven holiday areas of the Salzburger Sportwelt is to scale a beautiful mountain peak and literally hike its history. Hikers can pick up a hiking brochure from the local tourist offices and collect stamps for it on all the peaks. Individually developed rituals invite you to linger on the mountains, recharge your batteries, and replenish yourself and connect with each special place. The “Salzburger Gipfelspiel” encourages hiking, but also mindful listening and pausing. This game of the imagination is sparked by the beauty of a spectacular landscape.
