We offer both Apartment and Bed and Breakfast accommodation.Winter offers a ski and snowboarding paradise, we are situated only 500m from the nearest lift, toboggan run, ski school, ski bus, right in the heart of the Ski Amade area, Austria's largest ski area.For cross-country ski fans we are just 300m from the nearest trail. Summer time offers a totally different perspective, with 5 great golf courses in easy reach. Walking, Biking, adventure sports, lakes, mountain peaks and valley trails and Salzburg City to name a few, are all set amongst Alpine meadows, with friendly Austrian hospitality.
Winter season:: Ski Amade is our ski area, the largest ski area in Austria. We have easy access to the Altenmarkt ski school and slopes, just 500m from the house.
Altenmarkt also has one of the best Apres ski huts in the area, as well as a 4 km long night time toboggan run, through the forest down between 2 ski huts.
Cross country skiing and horse drawn sleigh rides are also popular, as well as other winter events such as the Historic Ice trophy rally, and the world cup ski event at Zauchensee and Schladming in January.The Salzburg Christmas market is spectacular and has mulled wine to die for, and from March onwards warmer weather approaches, what better way to relax, than getting a snow tan whilst drinking a hot chocolate on the mountain.
Summer season:: Summer has so much to offer, from mountain sports activities, and leisurely golf, to thermal spas and swimming in the lakes. Mozart's home town of Salzburg is close by, or you can just relax on our balcony and enjoy the views and mountain air.
Walking is very popular with well marked trails and routes, and a few ski lifts operate in summer as well to effortlessly glide you up the mountain.
It's a mountain biking paradise, with cross country and single track routes, bike parks and downhill.
We are also surrounded by fresh water lakes, lovely for swimming in clear fresh water and for topping up suntans and relaxing
Young Families:: We have 2 young children of our own, so are well supplied with toys and 'younger things to do'. Please contact us if you need any more information. We now have a large trampoline as well as our sand pit and climbing frame/swing/slide.In winter we have several sledges, which children (and adults!) love to use on the hill behind our house as well as making snow men
