The name refers to the highest mountain in the Berchtesgaden Alps, Salzburgerland, Austria, in the Northern Calcareous Alps, and also to the surrounding mountain group as a whole. They provide the perfect back drop to your Skifix Holiday

The Hochkönig is home to a magnificent ski and snowboard region which in turn is part of the much larger Ski Amade and also home to Skifix.

Lying to the west of the city of Bischofshofen in the Austrian state of Salzburg, 42 km due south of the city of Salzburg. Hochkönig is separated from the rest of the Berchtesgaden Alps, and more specifically from the Steinernes Meer (stone ocean) by the mountain pass Torscharte at 2246 m. The summit itself is at the southern edge of a large limestone plateau, which is largely covered by the glacier known as the "Übergossene Alm" (poured-over meadow). (see our pistè maps
