Things to Do in Großarl

Großarl is among the most important ski ressorts of Salzburg (if not Austria) and busy during the main season. It is linked to the ski lifts of the Gasteinertal valley. In summer, it is much less crowded and thus cheaper; there are hiking and mountainbiking opportunities. The Großarltal Valley is also advertised as "the valley of the mountain cabins".
