A summer holiday in the Wildkogel Arena is a real highlight for young and old mountain sports enthusiasts alike.

An incredible view of the three thousand metre peaks of the Hohe Tauern and over the Salzach Valley awaits those seeking relaxation on the Wildkogel panorama trail. A leisurely ascent is made with the summer cable cars in the Wildkogel Arena. The Wildkogel cable car in Neukirchen and the Smaragdbahn in Bramberg ensure a gentle ascent to the starting point of the high-altitude hikes at over 2000 m, bike routes and viewing points.
Hiking and biking
But the valleys of the Hohe Tauern National Park also invite you to take extensive tours – treasure hunters are drawn to the Emerald Trail to dig for emeralds in the Bramberg Habachtal, true wilderness fans marvel at guided national park hikes into the original wilderness area in the Untersulzbach Valley or hike along the Venedigerweg to the Obersulzbach Valley. With the Neukirchen and Bramberg guest card you can hire buggies, prams and hiking boots free of charge on site. Mountain bikers and e-bikers will find a real Eldorado with impressive nature experiences in the National Park valleys and sunny side valleys of Mühlbachtal, Dürnbach- and Trattenbachtal. Or you can simply combine cycling with hiking for unforgettable “Bike & Hike” experiences.
Families go on an adventurous voyage of discovery in the Wildkogel Arena. The wooden playground of the Kogel-Mogel Adventure Arena awaits you right at the top station with fun play stations. An unforgettable sliding experience – not only for children – is promised by the slide path, which leads between the middle station of the Wildkogel lift on 10 slides of up to 53 m in length down to the Stockenbaum Inn. The four-kilometre-long mountain-cart track from the top station of the Smaragdbahn to the middle station is even faster. A downhill run on the winding route with the off-road carts ensures great fun and repeat runs are pre-programmed! With the weekly Wildkogel-Active programme, there is certainly no chance of boredom for young and old holidaymakers alike.

Winter holiday in the Wildkogel-Arena
The Wildkogel-Arena ski area, which is guaranteed snow from December to Easter, has 75 kilometres of perfectly groomed pistes and is ideal for families, beginners and returners. But ski tourers and deep-snow divers will also find ideal terrain on the wide powder snow slopes of the Wildkogel Arena. The Wildkogel offers a real winter paradise at 2,100 m above sea level in the middle of the Hohe Tauern National Park holiday region with a boundless view of the surrounding three thousand metre peaks. Kids can let off steam on the snow waves and steep turns of the Funslope or on small jumps and boxes in the family park, be welcomed to the summit by the mascots Kogel-Mogel and Kogel-Mia or immortalise themselves on their personal ski movie. Cosy huts provide for culinary well-being with regional dishes and hut classics.
