Fun on the slopes

Kids activities

An ultimate winter experience awaits your little ones
not only on the slopes.
For example, the skating rink is in the immediate vicinity of the hotel and offers ice skating fun with a children's disco.
Or how about whizzing down the mountain on a toboggan? Fun for parents and children.

If you want to taste real freedom you have to go to the "very top". Where white peaks, untracked slopes and the deep blue sky really make you want to go. As we all know  freeriding stands for the feeling of freedom. Rocks and trees whistle past to the left and right. The powder snow dusts the still unridden route. Jumps are also fully permitted

Snowshoe hiking

The snow crunches under your feet and the sunlight lights the white splendour of the Gastein mountains up. Whether beginner or advanced, that's the perfect day trip for everyone.


Horse-drawn sleigh rides

Pure romance - warmly wrapped in blankets, the tinkling of horse bells along the winter hiking trail with the lights through the tree tops - this is what enchants a horse-drawn sleigh ride in our valley.
