Tyrolean's greatest panoramic mountain
The Hohe Salve (1,829 m) is a mountain in the Tyrolean lowlands that offers stunning 360° views. Thanks to the Hopfgarten and Söll lift operators, conquering the summit across 70 three-thousand-metre-high peaks with little effort becomes a gentle pleasure.
Visit the Salvenkirchlein, the pilgrimage church of John the Baptist, and discover the highest pilgrimage church in Austria. The visit can be combined with an easy hike around the summit, which allows you to get a an incredible panorama view on the mountains of Tyrol.
New horizons are created at Austria’s first revolving panoramic terrace at the summit restaurant, and likewise when the head chef serves up her “Ziachkiachln” (type of sweet or savoury doughnut) every Wednesday.
Tempting tip on the Hohe Salve: sunrise trip on the first gondola for a mountain breakfast with magnificent views.
The mountain theme park Hohe Salve is reachable by foot, or by the two modern gondolas Hopfgarten and Söll.
For those wanting to scale the last stretch up to the summit, the new summer KEAT LIFT will float you easily up from the Hochsöll side to the home straight of the summit hike. From here it is not much further to the highest viewing point in Austria’s biggest mountain experience!
