Discover the beautiful winter landscape away from the ski runs by cross-country skiing, hiking or take a romantic horse sleigh tour. Experience a great time while trying your luck at tobogganing or curling. Just a step in front of the door and you are right in the middle of it.

There are over 220 kilometres in total of the best maintained slopes, in all levels of difficulty – classic, and for the most part, also with tracks for skating – making Salzburger Sportwelt your ideal cross-country destination. Just 100 metres away from the hotel there is an access point to the famous Tauernloipe, which at 50 kilometres in length, goes through the idyllic, snow-covered Salzburgerland (Ski amadé) and links the towns of Flachau, St. Johann-Alpendorf, Wagrain, Radstadt, Altenmarkt-Zauchensee, Kleinarl, Eben, Filzmoos and Untertauern to one another.
