Explore the winter beauty of Piesendorf and Niedernsill on the winter hiking trails

  • Current information! Due to the weather conditions, some of the winter hiking trails are closed.

Everyone loves snowy forests, seeks fun in the snow, and revels in the joy of nature. Our beautiful winter landscape is a popular meeting point for many winter sports enthusiasts and nature lovers.   

Our plea to you! Set out on your excursion with HEALTHY COMMON SENSE, RESPECT and PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY, adhering to the RULES OF CONDUCT on the cross-country ski trails and winter hiking paths. Respect the guidelines concerning your four-legged companions and approach the snowy nature with respect. By doing so, the winter landscape will have plenty of room for all of us. 

The snow-covered mountain resorts of Piesendorf and Niedernsill are not only a place for people to relax, but also for their pets to enjoy the unspoilt winter landscape. However, there are a few things to bear in mind: 

  • Leash law: In Piesendorf and Niedernsill, dogs must be kept on a leash (also in the forest, on hiking trails, etc.). Where necessary, muzzles are also required, e.g. in cable cars, public transport, etc. 
  • Notes regarding cross-country ski trails: Dogs are strictly prohibited on the cross-country ski trails in Piesendorf and Niedernsill. Please adhere to this rule. 
  • Notes regarding winter hiking paths: On certain routes, bringing DOGS along is strictly prohibited. 
  • Dog's dirt: Dog owners must ensure that any dog dirt is removed immediately with a dog dirt bag and disposed of properly. 
  • Dog run: In Hummersdorf/Piesendorf there is an off-leash area for dog's :-) 
  • Can I take my dog on activities? Yes, you can find an overview here

The local tax is € 2.05 each person and night from the age of 15 years. 

The line between Niedernsill an Krimml was damaged by flooding in July 2021. The line is therefore closed until further notice. A bus replacement service has been set up. Trains between Zell am See, Piesendorf and Niedernsill will run as scheduled. 

Comfortable bus transfer from SALZBURG AIRPORT to the National Park Hohe Tauern holiday region and to PIESENDORF NIEDERNSILL

The Holiday Shuttle bus service takes you directly from the airport to your holiday destination and back again. Plan your trip in advance! Book your bus transfer conveniently from home and secure your seat. 

Note! Online bookings will not be accepted 48 hours before arrival/departure. But don't worry, you haven't missed your chance. Simply call your Holiday Shuttle at +43 6549 20421 and secure your last-minute seat. :-) 

The 14-kilometer section between Golling and Werfen, featuring a total of 5 tunnel structures and known as the "oldest motorway tunnel chain in Austria," no longer meets the necessary safety standards. As previously communicated through various media portals, social media channels, and more, extensive renovation work will take place here until June 2025.  

As a result, the A10 in this section will be reduced to a single lane. To ensure a relatively traffic-free journey, we recommend the following alternative routes:  

  • Coming from the East (Vienna, Czech Republic, Poland, Hungary ...) 
    Alternative route via A9 - Liezen - Ennstal Bundesstraße towards Radstadt/Altenmarkt

If you plan to embark on a trip to the city of Salzburg from Piesendorf Niedernsill, there are no obstacles if you take the alternative route via the "small German corner - kleines Deutsches Eck": 

  • Piesendorf Niedernsill - Zell am See - Saalfelden - Lofer - Schneizlreuth (D) - Bad Reichenhall (D) - Salzburg

Additionally, we highly recommend considering public transportation as a convenient alternative. The attractive offers and packages for traveling to the SalzburgerLand region by public transport provide an excellent option to reduce reliance on your car.  

Stay informed and check the traffic situation before your departure and return journey.
