Wald, on the westernmost border of Pinzgau, is a picturesque village that has managed to preserve its authentic character. In summer, Wald-Königsleiten excites active holidaymakers with more than 200 kilometers of marked hiking paths inside Hohe Tauern National Park. Guided mountain- and biking tours through magical nature are always a special experience.
Winter fun for Skiers and Cross-Country Skiers
The Zillertal Arena, which encompasses the towns of Zell, Gerlos, Königsleiten-Wald and Hochkrimml, delights winter vacationers with 52 lifts and 147 kilometers of pistes. Cross-country skiers, too, find “just what the doctor ordered” on the local ski trail, which also connects with the famous “Pinzgau Loipe”. The 2.5 km long winter hiking trail at the Königsleiten mountain station offers a wonderful view of the summits. Easy to reach with the Königsleiten village railway, winter walkers will be thrilled by the breathtaking mountain scenery! Away from the pistes, romantic sleigh rides, winter hikes, ski tours and snowshoe hikes guarantee a variety-filled vacation in Wald-Königsleiten.
Musical Hiking Tip
Guided yodeling hikes in Königsleiten. These easy hikes with Christian Eder include a short yodeling course, on a yodeling path leading out from the Königsleiten mountain station. After riding up to the summit on the gondola, you will begin by warming up your vocal cords – and then, off you go. At the individual stops along the way, you will learn simple yodels, making these hikes a true treat for all your senses. A lunch break at the Larmbachalm is also scheduled, and you will return to Königsleiten at around 3 p.m.
