The village centre of Puch with its charming shops, such as the flower shop, pharmacy and tobacconist, as well as the cosy inns, caf├ęs and restaurants, contribute to the inviting and lively atmosphere. The view to the south-west is dominated by the mighty Untersberg, which towers majestically over the landscape and provides an impressive backdrop.

The large municipal car park in the middle of the village is the ideal starting point for numerous hikes, such as up the Almerberg or along the Salzach to Kaltenhausen or Urstein. The easy village circuit takes you, for example, along the Sister Hildegard Trail with the new agricultural information boards to the leisure centre and the FC Puch forest stadium, past a dog meadow. The ideal "after-work loop" or "dog loop" for walking your dog.
