Hinterglemm

Hinterglemm is a famous, traditional ski resort with a great atmosphere located just above the lively village of Saalbach at the end of the Glemmtal. This is an ideal destination, particularly for novice and intermediate skiers and snowboarders. Both villages are connected to each other by pistes as well as a ski bus service. You will find more than 50 restaurants here, some of which are true local favourites. The cosy mountain huts are a great traditional culinary option. Here, while the Glühwein is kept warm in a large pot on an open fire, you can sit back and try some of the local dishes. Of course there are plenty of lively bars and night clubs where you can dance away the night as well. Besides its long pistes, Saalbach-Hinterglemm is also renowned for its long nights! If you are interested in a more active après-ski you can also head for the indoor swimming pool, the ice skating rink and the tennis and squash courts. You can even decide to go paragliding over the Alps!

This destination has added flight options, if you have booked a holiday on the basis of private transportation. The transport from the airport to your accommodation is not inclusive and needs to be organised yourself. For an attractive fee you can book a rental car with Sunweb Holidays. Of course, you can also use the local public transport or take a taxi instead.

Skicircus Saalbach-Hinterglemm-Leogang-Fieberbrunn

The ski area of Saalbach-Hinterglemm-Leogang-Fieberbrunn is one of the best resorts in Austria and is rightfully referred to as the Ski Circus. More than 200 km (124 ml) of pistes are sure to give you enough choice for a great holiday!

The keener, advanced skier can head to the Schattberg side. Here on the Northern side, a 4 kilometre (3 ml) tough black run forms a formidable challenge to those who dare to try it! However the Western side also offers plenty to push even the most experienced skiers and boarders.

The Ski Circus is still an area in development. Every year new lifts are being built. If you are a beginner then you should take the lift to the Seekar area situated at a higher altitude. Here you can practice on easier pistes and still enjoy the fantastic views.

This region also caters for snowboarders. Besides half pipes and a snow park in Saalbach there are also special snowboard pistes available. After skiing or snowboarding, the cosy ski huts are great places to meet your fellow holiday makers. Saalbach is a small, peaceful village. Hinterglemm on the other hand has a more extensive après-ski with lots of English pubs as well.
