Tee off from an old tractor, putt into a milk churn
The panoramic path on the high plateau of Embach stretches over 6 km and contains golf stations. The Embach mountain golf course was built from utensils from the farms of Embach, with much attention to detail. You tee off for example from an old horse-drawn sledge, and later putt the ball into the hole across a wooden lath into an old mill. On the golf course you can also discover the local flora and fauna, and all the time have the breathtaking panorama of the mountain scenery of Salzburgerland accompanying you during your 2 to 3 hour round. There is plenty of fun to be had here, and 3 mountain restaurants offer you refreshment en route, including local delicacies.
Opening times: daily from May to October
