The Animal Mountain Village on the Hochkönig

Meet smaller and lager animals

Family holiday at the Bergheimat Hotel

There is no child that doesn't love animals. And children will absolutely love a summer holiday on the Hochkönig. There's is hardly anywhere else where the alpine animal world is introduced to children with more creativity and enthusiasm.

Many educational hiking paths, petting zoos and programme highlights around the Bergheimat Hotel are offered during your summer holiday with your family.

Manfred the cute marmot has become the Animal Mountain Village's mascot. He will show you where you can find other animals during your holiday on the Hochkönig, animals that you and your children can feed and pet.

Adventure hiking trails in Salzburgerland

Have you ever had a closer look at the forest? Or watched marmots in their natural habitat? On various themed hiking paths there is a lot to be seen and experienced. Children will learn a lot about the flora and fauna in the Hochkönig region in a very playful way. Informative adventure stations will provide games and adventures. Marmot, ant and butterfly trail: that are just three examples of adventure hikes on the Hochkönig.

Petting zoo: get close to the animals

Rabbits, marmots, cows, sheep, pigs, goats and many more: in the petting zoos in Salzburgerland around your Bergheimat Holiday Hotel, your children will be able to get very close to the animals. Some of them can be petted and fed. At the adventure farms in the Hochkönig region animal fun awaits your whole family.

Open stable door

Every year and until late September the Dientalm farm opens daily at 4pm and shows visitors a usual day in a life of a farmer. You can also lend a hand and help milking the cows. Apart from the alpine animals you can also visit the dairy and taste homemade cheese, bacon, bread and alpine butter.
