Your winter wonderland—just outside the door

Winter holidays at the family vacation hotel in Upper Austria

Have fun skiing, curling, winter hiking, tobogganing and more

Snow-covered meadows and white mountain peaks: In winter, a true white fairytale landscape awaits you in and around our family hotel. Beautiful to look at—and with many opportunities for boisterous winter fun, right outside our door or in the vicinity.

“Märchenwiese” (fairy tale ski slope)

It can’t get any easier or more family friendly: Take your turns on the “Märchenskiwiese” (fairy tale ski slope with rope lift), on the “Wellenbahn” or at the drag lift (400 m) right outside our hotel. Relaxed and safe skiing without hustle and bustle to ensure your perfect winter vacation for the whole family. During holiday seasons and school holidays, we also offer skiing lessons for you and your kids!

By the way: For ambitious and more experienced skiers, the World Cup ski resort Hinterstoder is just 9 km away.

Outdoor activities

100 km of cleared winter hiking trails await you to take you through the heavenly, snow-covered landscapes of the Pyhrn-Priel region. Cross snowy meadows and forests on snowshoes, for rent at our hotel. Or how about tobogganing on a natural slope for exuberant family fun? If you prefer it more romantically, we recommend a horse-drawn carriage ride. And close to our hotel, our trout pond gets prepared for your rounds of Bavarian curling, accompanied by a warming “Jagatee” (grog).

Cross-country skiing

Prefer Nordic sports? You will find your winter sports paradise here as well. More than 130 km of prepped cross-country ski trails at four different altitudes between 600 and 1,400 m lie ahead of you, waiting to get explored. Additionally, you can visit the cross-country and biathlon center in Rosenau at the Hengstpass (snow guaranteed until spring).
