Meet the Saalbach Hinterglemm Locals

The vast Alpine valley of Saalbach Hinterglemm, where farmers’ fields are draped over the lower slopes like a green patchwork quilt, is a veritable adventure playground for youngsters – of all ages.

I love to live in Saalbach Hinterglemm - for me it's definitely the best place to be. In my opinion Saalbach easily matches the diversity of big cities, though here everything is done in tune with nature. There are plenty of unique activities for the whole family, easily accessible by our panorama cable car: the swimming lake, built especially with sustainability in mind, the petting zoo, the mountain farming museum, the demonstration of baking bread the traditional way, the feeding of the deer or the show of birds of prey. It's all about having fun but also learning and understanding about things - that's the added value we like to offer visitors as a ‘souvenir' to remember us by when they are back home.

Our clients often tell me that they highly regard the sustainability of the experiences at Schnitza's Holzpark. Children love to carve their personal hiking pole which brings forward their creativity. They have no experience in woodcarving when they come to us and when they create something with their own hands they are very excited and they appreciate my guidance. This is a different way of teaching and children love it. The work and activities using wood, whether it's the actual carving or playing with the wooden toys is great fun and an excellent alternative to computer games and TV. I prefer to live in the ‘here and now' and I don't think of these children as the guests of the future; the only thing that matters to me is to see their happy faces and watch their excitement. I want them to remember their holiday at  Saalbach-Hinterglemm as a jolly good time.
