Backdropped by towering mountain spires, the village of Leogang is only an hour’s drive from Salzburg. It’s one of Austria’s top alpine destinations, and snowy ski runs and rutted cross-country tracks – just minutes from the city centre – draw thousands of winter sports enthusiasts each year. If travelling to Leogang during the summer months, you’ll find it a perfect base from which to experience the area’s world-class hiking trails and mountain biking paths. Here’s our picks of the village’s best hotels – all bookable on Culture Trip.

1. Salzburger Hof Leogang, for cosy cabins

Steps away from a mountain gondola that whisks visitors to a ski area and bike park, the Salzburger Hof Leogang is perfectly positioned for loads of alpine frolicking. Each of the rooms and suites features traditional wood details that are well juxtaposed with the furnishing’s contemporary lines. Take in the view from the hotel rooftop, get a massage at the spa or take a dip in the infinity pool. Guests who want to get away from it all can book the Abergalm Hut – a rustic cabin tucked into the mountains outside of town.

2. Das Rivus, for living alpine to the fullest

Epitomising Alpine living, spacious rooms and suites provide comforting calm through soft tones and muted colours, while 17 well-equipped apartments become sophisticated homes away from home. Start the day with a delightful breakfast spread and end on a high note – feasting on the on-site restaurant’s innovative Austrian dishes made with ingredients sourced locally.

3. Hotel Krallerhof, for unique decor

Smack bang in the centre of Leogang, the Hotel Der Löwe LEBE FREI is a hub for outdoor activity, thanks to the nearby family lift up to a slope that leads back to the hotel. The 45 rooms – all classic in style – feature wood parquet floors and mountain views. Some suites come generously equipped with balconies, fireplaces, soaking tubs and saunas. After a long day traversing the mountain, enjoy a pre-dinner cocktail at the sophisticated Lions Lounge Digestif Bar with a cool walk-in Vinothèque.

5. Puradies, for a luxury spa day

With so much pure wellness at your fingertips, the splurge-worthy Puradies is a hotel that oozes with understated luxury. A unique mountain escape, opt for an extra measure of solitude by booking one of the hotel’s exclusive chalets.

There’s a spa, of course – and in warmer months, families can enjoy the natural swimming pond and active organic farm with a petting zoo.

6. Hotel Leonhard, for endless amenities
