Resort guide to Leogang - Austria

Traditional resort linked with Saalbach Hinterglemm for large, varied ski area

Leogang resort guide - a general overview

Leogang is a traditional resort lying in the valley floor and linking via its north facing slopes into the large Saalbach/Hinterglemm ski area which offers 270km of pistes. Situated on the road between Fieberbrunn to the west and St Johann to the east the resort centre is rather strung out but is charming enough.

There is a good selection of well-priced and good quality hotels. The 4 star Hotel Krallerhof is one and the new Puradies spa hotel and chalet complex is the other. The nightlife scene is fairly quiet so Leogang suits families and couples who like an early bedtime. There is quite a good afternoon après ski scene and this is centred on the rustic and old Kraller Alm.

There are traditional off slope activities such as attractive walking and X-country skiing trails, horse drawn sleigh rides, ice skating and a new mile-long flying fox zip wire on which you can speed through the air at 80mph.

Leogang Resort Restaurants

There is not much that stands out to mention other than the good restaurants found in the hotels

Leogang Mountain Restaurants

There are lots of great on-mountain restaurants in the large ski area. At the top of the gondola from Leogang the Alte Schmiede is a lovely stone and wood hut that also doubles as a quasi-museum - the ribs and pizza are reliable offerings we hear and the service for a large restaurant is also first class. The three level Asitzbrau is also highly recommended. In truth there are too many great choices to list so our advice is to just go explore. You are very unlikely to be disappointed with what you find.

Leogang Apres Ski

The après ski scene is pretty quiet by Austrian standards but is buzzing enough when people come off the slopes and return to town. The centre of action is the Kraller Alm at the Hotel Kraller - this is an old and traditional bar with a good atmosphere.

Leogang Nightlife

Not much to mention here.
