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.
