  • Georgenberg
    Georgenberg is a little natural paradise in the heart of Kuchl. Adults and children alike will find lots to discover on and around this “inselberg”, from the daughter church of St Georg and the caverns to forest paths. Leisurely footpaths lead you up and around the mountain. Enjoy the great views of Kuchl and the Göll massif here. Ideally, you can park in one of the car parks near the Bürgerausee and enjoy the unspoilt landscape and the vast expanse of the Salzach valley on your way to Georgenberg.

  • Bürgerausee
    A leisurely, pushchair-friendly walk around the Bürgerausee is also suitable for little hikers. The trail around the bathing lake is just under 1.5 km long. The big playground on the north shore of the lake and the Kneipp therapy area on the south shore ensure fun and variety.

  • Purtschellerhaus alpine hut
