The simple things can often be the most fascinating

Running on historic routes in Salzburg

Getting around on foot under your own steam is always a marvellous thing, and a means of exercise that can be inspirational.
It is also something that holds a special place at the Gmachl.

Salzburg is home to a range of Nordic walking and running routes, not just in our own parkland, but throughout Salzburger land. We provide a route guide so that you don’t lose your way, and your host Franz Gmachl will happily give you a personal recommendation. To recover afterwards, enjoy the extensive range of wellness our hotel offers. One special highlight is the running route along the Salzach river into the old part of Salzburg, giving you a spectacular panorama combined with an infusion of culture. Salzburg is full of contrasts.

Hiking and wellness: long live pleasure!

The Wellness Hotel Gmachl, lovingly nestled between the sleeping giants of the Alps, is the perfect place to stay for exploring the region on foot. Well-marked paths take you to the nicest places and peaks in Salzburger land with something for every level of ability. Views of Salzburg accompany you throughout; the Gaisberg circuit and the walk to Maria Plain are really captivating.
