Fusch itself lies in the ‘Hohe Tauern National Park‘. Here you will find wonderful meadows and gorges with wild flowers and waterfalls. The whole area is a paradise for Nordic walkers, ramblers and mountain bikers , as there are seemingly unlimited trails to explorer. Bike rentals are available in many locations including here in the village. ‘Tettenwand‘ and ‘Gletscherseeplatte‘ rock faces offer some excellent climbing for both novices and experts.
Just an hours drive in any direction and you will find some of the most amazing attractions such as; the largest ice caves in the world at ‘Werfen‘, one of the highest waterfalls in the world at ‘Krimml‘, the ‘Grossglockner high alpine road‘, Salt & Copper mines and the historical area of ‘Berchtesgaden‘.
For the more adventurous, there are activities such as white water rafting, canyoning, and rock climbing. And if that still isn’t enough then why not pop down to the light airfield in Schüttdorf, where paragliding and other airborne activities are to be found.
Our Chalet is situated directly on the Grossglocknerstrasse.

‘Bruck-Fusch‘ station offers brilliant connections to both Salzburg and Innsbruck. Salzburg is one of Europe’s most appealing cities, blessed with a stunning location by the banks of the Salzach river and surrounded by glorious scenery. The medieval Hohensalzburg fortress, overlooks the narrow cobbled streets of the old town, where amongst the quaint craft shops and typical Austrian coffeehouses, you will find some serious shopping to be done. Church steeples, Baroque and Rococo domes rise above historic rooftops, and courtyards. You may prefer to seek out a traditional beer hall for a glass of the local creamy-topped Steigl beer, while culture lovers can visit the house of Mozart, Salzburg’s most famous son, along with many museums and galleries. Salzburg was also the setting for the ever-popular musical the Sound of Music, and every summer the city hosts the prestigious Salzburg Festival, with a packed programme of opera, drama and concerts. Innsbruck, the Capital of Austrian Tyrol is a charming historic city in the Inn Valley, surrounded by forested mountain scenery. The compact city centre is a delight to walk around and also has an extensive tram system. Innsbruck’s old town is full of ornate baroque mansions, museums and medieval churches, along with the splendid Imperial Palace and the gilded ‘Golden Roof’ pavilion in its central square. The city is a fantastic option for those wanting to combine culture with outdoor activities, as cable cars and excellent transport links make it easy to visit the nearby mountains for walking and hiking.
It's worth mentioning that if you are planning on doing and seeing a lot whilst on holiday here, then it's definitely worth checking out the savings which can be made by purchasing either the Salzburgerland or Hohetauern Cards. Have a look at our useful links page for more information.
