Summer vacation in Flachau

Flachau in summer

The World Cup town of Flachau - well known far beyond its Austrian borders - also invites hikers, bikers, adventurers, hungry diners and vacationing families to come for a stay in the summer months. The town’s motto ‘At the summit of action-packed fun and enjoyment’ rings true as the Flachau hoteliers and accommodation providers offer a wide range of activity programs that include guided hikes, bike tours and many other sporting activities unique to the region. The Flachau Guest Card includes all of these activities at no charge, as well as an ascent and descent with each of the two Flachau summer mountain lifts, Starjet 1 and Starjet 2 (2 night minimum stay required).

Summer mountain lifts in Flachau

You can get straight up to the Griessenkar Adventure Mountain right from the center of Flachau on either the Starjet 1 or the Starjet 2. In the summer vacation months of July and August, the lifts are open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. You can get your ticket either onsite at the ticket offices or online via our webshop. If you have a valid Flachau Guest Card, you can take it with you straight to the turnstile. For the safety of our guests, we reserve the right to stop operation of the lifts in the event of heavy rain or thunderstorms.

Off the highway and onto the slopes

The vacation resort of Flachau is about 70 kilometers south of the provincial capital city of Salzburg, directly on the Tauern Autobahn (A10 - Exit 66) in Pongau. At the center of the Austrian Alps, Flachau can be reached very easily – coming from the north, from Germany or Holland, via Munich and Salzburg; coming from Italy in the south, via Villach and Spittal.

Hikers' mountain Griessenkar & Flori's Adventure Path

A hiking adventure begins at each of the mountain stations of the summer lifts. You can choose from a wide range of different hiking tours, from the half-hour summit walk to the more challenging circular path hike. Families will be at the right place on Flori's Adventure Path at the top station of Starjet 1. Curious and clever children can try to solve tricky puzzles along the way. Success will be rewarded with a small gift at the tourism association office.
