Holiday in Lungau
The sun transforms the wintery-white blanket of snow into a sparkling sea of brilliant diamonds. Have you ever asked yourself what it would be like to be faced with a vision you will never forget? If not, come experience winter in Mauterndorf, and you will know what we mean. And there are so many opportunities, including alpine skiing, snowboarding, cross-country skiing, winter hikes, sledding and ski touring.
Thanks to our healthy mountain elevations, you will find ideal snow conditions here until late spring. Furthermore, Mauterndorf is located within both the Lungau Ski Region and the Lungo Ski Region, so that nothing more stands in the way of a variety-packed ski vacation in Austria. This also goes for families with children, since our ski areas, with their many "blue" (beginners') hills, are as family-friendly as they come.
Around 1 km from the town center of Mauterndorf, you will discover the slopes of Grosseck-Speiereck, a ski area especially popular with families and casual skiers. And with elevations as high as 2400 meters above sea level, you can count on outstanding snow conditions from the end of November until after Easter! Grosseck - Speiereck Adventure Mountain can be accessed both from Mauterndorf and St. Michael. Superbly groomed slopes as high as 2400 m - including the new, magical, sunny Valley Run dropping down to St. Michael (9 km in length) and to Mauterndorf (5.5 kilometers).
In addition to our Adventure Mountain, the region is also home to the Fanningberg, Aineck/Katschberg and Obertauern ski areas. Lungau's ski shuttles run hourly to all Lungau ski areas.
Buses run every 10 minutes from Mauterndorf to the Grosseck /Speiereck ski area.
30 ski trails extend out for some 240 kilometers, offering all the variety you could wish for. Great snow conditions until well into springtime are guaranteed by the high trails in Schönfeld-Thomatal, the Karneralm, along the shores of the Prebersee, in Mariapfarr-Lignitz and on the Katschberg.
In Mauterndorf, there is a floodlit, ca. 500 meters-long sled run right next to a winter footpath at the Ski Center at the foot of Mauterndorf Castle. One of the longest sled runs in the entire Lungau can be found on the Fanningberg, dropping from the Gamsstadl Hütte to Gasthof Jacklbauer.
There is perhaps nothing more impressive or unforgettable than exploring the snowy winter countryside of the Lungau on foot. The trees and bushes are covered in hoar frost, snow crystals glisten in the sun, and the streams are covered in a thick layer of ice.
