ACTIVE SUMMERS IN UNTERNBERG - RECREATION FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY!
Unternberg lies in the middle of UNESCO Biosphere Reserve Salzburger Lungau and, due to its central location in Murtal Valley, is an ideal base for many different bicycle and mountain-bike tours, hikes and excursions. The R/C airfield near Moosham is one of the most beautiful in Austria and a gathering place for remote-control aviators from near and far. The local hiking paths, Nordic-walking trails, the tennis center and the beach-volleyball court invite you to get out and be active. Unternberg is also a partner community of the Lungau Murtal Run, which takes place annually at the end of June. Hundreds of avid runners and Nordic walkers line up at the start of this event, with the finish line located in Tamsweg.
For those who love to spend time in and around the water, nearby you will discover the Vital- & Wellnesscenter Samsunn in Mariapfarr and the BadeInsel in Tamsweg, as well as several outdoor bathing areas in Lungau during the summer months. The surrounding countryside promises a number of other opportunities for outdoor sports, including horseback riding, fishing, climbing and rafting.
