Hiking for young and old - The Ghost Mountain
When on the mountains the snow has melted, ghosts are waking up, who were sleeping in the depth of St. Johann's mountains. In spring, summer and autumn families can get to know these ghosts of the Alps. Small children who are hiking with their families will find different ghosts on the gnome path - Wichtelweg. For the older children the alpine leisure park provides for swings, birds' nests, climbing dragon, ghost tower, trick fountains, ghosts' lake, cone shooting galleries and many other things. Adults find their pleasures in a hiking and nature paradise of the extra class located in a magnificent panoramic position. Walk along non-slip hiking paths and enjoy the rippling waters in the water world
But not only those hiking in our region …
will get their full money's worth. In close vicinity there is the magnificent gorge called Liechtensteinklamm. Thousands of years the Großarl mountain stream has eroded the stone and unstoppably continues to thunder into the Salzach river below.

Giant Ice World
Another highlight, which can be reached after only 25 minutes drive to the village of Werfen, is the with its unbelievable total length of 42 kilometres biggest ice cave in the world - the giant ice world (Eisriesenwelt). In winter cold air masses are transported to the inside of the cave. In spring rising temperatures cause the ice to melt and water penetrates into the cave and freezes. Through this and other complex processes the enormous, breathtaking ice formations - the "ice giants" are created.

A fascinating and unforgettable highlight is the falcon display at the historic falconry yard.
