Summer in Salzburg
In the summer the most popular leisure pursuits by far are mountain hiking and cycling. Hiking and trekking tours range from technically straightforward excursions in the Pinzgau and Pongau areas of the Grasberg Mountains to high alpine mountaineering in the Hohe Tauern region.
Cycling enthusiasts will find everything from easy family routes to challenging tours over the Grossglockner. The Tauern cycle path is especially popular and after the Danube cycle way is the second most important cycle route attracting in the season 30,000 cycling visitors. In Salzburg there are about 2,000 kilometers of sign-posted cycle paths and 3,000 kilometers of mountain bike trails.
Apart from that, Salzburg has the highest concentration of golf courses in the whole of Austria; moreover, its alpine foothill lakes and those of the Salzkammergut too are paradise for water-sports enthusiasts.
