You can find water around Bruck and Fusch

If you are looking for nature and lots of space far away from mass tourism, you will find it in Salzburger Land. The Hohe Tauern National Park in Austria invites you to go for walks and bike tours. The highlight of a visit to the area is the almost 3.800 meter high Großglockner, the highest mountain in Austria. Embedded in this mountain landscape are the villages of Bruck and Fusch in the Salzburg region. Mountain lakes, waterfalls, mountain streams and rivers: one element of both places is the water, it accompanies guests at every turn.

Water treatments according to Kneipp

An attraction for families is the water playground with cable ferry and Kneipp pool on the Käfertal nature adventure trail. The path is in one of the most beautiful valleys in the Alps. More than 1.100 species of beetles, almost 300 species of large butterflies and many wild animals live at over 200 meters. At stations and on display boards, visitors can find out about the special features of the valley. But the water treatments according to Kneipp are not only in demand on the water playground. There are numerous Kneipp facilities in the region. The main facility is located in the mountain resort of Bad Fusch at an altitude of almost 1200 m. Springs feed Kneipp pools. You stretch your feet into the ice-cold water, let the mountain air blow in your face, find relaxation and recharge your batteries. A snack bar spoils guests with regional dishes and soft drinks.

Hiking and alpine huts

The holiday region is not just an Eldorado for hikers because of the water adventures. While walking and themed trails attract families, alpinists can put their stamina and stamina to the test on the 3.000m peaks. All information is there here and by phone 0043-65457295. But what would hiking be without alpine huts? Only half as nice. That's why it's worth stopping there and concentrating on nature, the silence and the mountain panorama. With luck you can even hear the whistle of a marmot.
