Mauterndorf in Winter

In winter Lungau’s snow guaranteeing ski resorts Aineck-Katschberg, Grosseck-Speiereck, Fanningberg or Obertauern are very easy to get to from your Chalet. In fact, Mauterdorf lies at the center of all these celebrated resorts. You can take either your car or the free ski bus to access any of the resorts within minutes. Combined, the resorts offer nearly 250 km of slopes of varying degree of difficulty ranging from 1064 to 2410 meter in height, with certain ski runs over 7 km! No wonder Lungau ranks among the best ski regions in Austria!

For cross-country skiers Mauterndorf is an equally perfect destination, as the surrounding valleys offer roughly 100 km of maintained tracks. For the hikers among us special winter trails are prepared, even way up among the ski resorts. Also for alpine skiing and snowshoeing the region has plenty to offer.

The over 800-year-old village of Mauterndorf is a pretty sight by night, with its historic buildings and towering fortress, which is always beautifully lit. In this attractive setting you will find numerous restaurants,“Gasthöfe,” and cozy bars. One thing you won’t encounter in Mauterndorf is an exuberant après-ski scene, even though the main square offers a nice opportunity to have a glass of Glühwein in a relaxed ambience. All these amenities are to be found within less than a five minute walk from the Chalet.

Mauterndorf in summer

In summer Mauterndorf bustles with activity and events such as musical recitals, a medieval weekend, Samson parades, Old-Timer shows, horse trades, etc. Additionally the museum in the commanding fortress is worth your while, as well as a ride on the Taurachbahn steam train.

The wonderful region of Lungau in which Mauterndorf is located (Unesco Biosphärenpark!) is perfectly suited for activities such as hiking, mountain biking and rafting, even golfing at the nearby town of St. Michael. Enjoy the beauty of the impressive mountains, the high alpine meadows and the lovely babbling brooks.

Within walking distance from your Chalet there is even a splendid outdoor pool, tennis courts and various attractive café terraces. In a nutshell, a perfect spot for a lovely, relaxed vacation.

All guests staying between June 1st and October 31st receive a “Lungaucard,” which grants free access to gondola’s, pools, museums and much more!
