Hohe Salve in Hopfgarten
Hohe Salve - Tyrol's most beautiful view !
The Hohe Salve (1,829m) with the Salvenkirchlein, the highest pilgrim church in Austria guarantees a magnificent 360° panorama of more than 70 mountain summits over 3,000m – a real high.
You can reach the famous summit by foot from the mountain station Hochbrixen via the Filzalm in about 1-1 1/2 hours walking time or by the comfortable cable car Hochsöll / Hohe Salve. Once you are up you will be rewarded with superb views.
Directly at the mountain summit is the Salvenkirchlein built in 1641, a small pilgrim church with an early baroque high altar.
Across from the Salvenkirchlein is the mountain inn Hohe Salve with a rotating terrace, which always offers an incredible view over the mountains, even during mealtimes.
By building a cable car to the mountain summit, with its station discreetly built into the mountain, a lookout platform emerged facing north looking out with a fantastic view of the Wilder Kaiser. From the platform, it is also possible to see into the Inntal valley and as far as Bavaria, not to mention a series of attractions including a wind harp, sun-dial stations, an over-sized giant's face for children to climb on and a stroking zoo at the mountain inn.
