Your hiking hotel in the Alps


A hiking holiday in the Saalfelden Leogang region is a journey into nature and to yourself. Because hardly any other sport allows you to immerse yourself so intensively in nature. What's more, hiking - especially here in Leogang - is great fun for young and old, young and old alike, and is good for body, mind and soul. Hiking routes in all imaginable levels of difficulty, more than 400 kilometres of well-marked hiking trails, climbing routes and challenging tours for ambitious mountaineers: Leogang inspires with its breathtaking mountain scenery, picturesque alpine pastures and air that you want to drink in.

On a hiking vacation in Leogang

As wonderful as it is to hike from alpine pasture to alpine pasture, stop off at rustic alpine huts and savour real Salzburg delicacies. At our 4*S hiking hotel Der Löwe Leogang you will find the regeneration and security you long for. Because we dedicate a lot of space to the valuable time of relaxation. Back from your nature adventures, our adults-only SPA Leonarium welcomes you and for families there is a separate family SPA area and our outdoor pool in the Löwengartl. With a view of the Leoganger Steinberge mountains and the warm hospitality of our staff, relaxation comes easy.

Mountain adventures

In the hiking summer for connoisseurs

Once you reach the top, you don't want to go back down. That's how nice it is to celebrate a summit victory, lie on soft alpine pastures and listen to the buzzing of the bees. Take your time. Let your feet dangle in the fresh water of the mountain lakes. Feel the lightness with every step that only summer in the mountains can offer.

As one of the largest hiking regions in Austria, the Saalfelden Leogang region is a true natural paradise. Rugged rock formations, gentle alpine pastures, mountain streams and pure adrenalin when climbing. The modern gondolas of the Leogang cable cars are the ideal choice for getting up to the "Asitz" in comfort, from where wonderful hikes start. But cultural highlights such as ALM:KULTUR with concerts, workshops and painting courses on the surrounding alpine pastures also make the Leogang hiking summer the perfect holiday destination for all generations.

We at the "Löwen" always have a hiking tip for you and are happy to reveal the most beautiful hiking routes for families with small children. Call us today and secure your well-deserved summer break with us in Leogang!

Gäste über uns

If you are looking for a small family-run hotel, this is the place for you. Food at its best, great wines. We are happy to fulfil individual wishes. It's not far to the mountain railway and it's quieter here. Very central and in the middle of nature without the hustle and bustle of the mountain railway. Massages are highly recommended and the new outdoor pool invites you to relax.

Really big!

Are you travelling with the dwarves in the mountains between the Kitzbühel Alps and Leoganger Steinberge? Then you've come to the right place. To make hiking fun, we at the hiking hotel Der Löwe lebe frei have a tip for you: take the Asitzbahn cable car to the middle station. A sensory adventure park with 30 stations awaits the little adventurers there. While mum and dad relax on the adjacent Stöcklalm and have the kids in sight, the children can let off steam with like-minded people. Those who dare to take a short climb will reach the reservoir or the play trail at the mountain station.
