Hiking in
Salzburger Land

We particularly like to welcome hikers to our hotel in St. Veit. Hotel Silberfux is linked to an extensive network of hiking routes, which take you to some of the most beautiful places in the area. Be enchanted by the beauty of nature, discover our idyllic mountain lakes or go on the trail of our indigenous wild animals.

Regional delicacies

The many local mountain huts offer a genuine taste of life in times gone-by where you can stop to enjoy great snacks and homemade delicacies. For those who do not know their way around, thanks to the well signposted paths, there are plenty of opportunities to find out about the Salzburg mountains.

If you would prefer to listen to the advice of “an old hand”, the hotel owner is available to share valuable local knowledge as well as showing you the stunning countryside around St. Veit on his regular weekly guided walks.
