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 leading your team in a curling competition. Just take a step outside the hotel and you are right in the middle of it all! And after lots of winter fun you can warm up in our spacious feel-well oasis or stop for a drink at our hotel bar.
There are over 220 kilometers 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 meters away from the hotel there is an access point to the famous Tauernloipe, which at 50 kilometers 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. The ski bus also takes you to various slope sections.
Tip: 14 km altitude slope Rossbrand
A traditional toboggan run shouldn’t be missing in any perfect skiing holiday. In Flachau and Flachauwinkl there are four toboggan runs on offer – between 3 and 4 kilometers in length. Of course, you don’t need to bring a toboggan with you – you can rent one at any of the runs.
Get your circulation going in the healthy stimulating climate at 1000 meters altitude, take a deep breath, and enjoy the superb natural surroundings of Salzburgerland, Ski amadé, to the full. Luckily, from Hotel Felsenhof it’s only a few hundred meters to the winter hiking path along the Tauernloipe.
For our guests, we keep ten pairs of snowshoes in the house that you can rent free of charge.
Please make sure to bring ankle-high hiking shoes with you if you want to go snowshoe hiking.
NEW: Mountain Sports Guide
Weekly guided snowshoe hiking tours
Sometimes the winter landscape and the great panorama views one can get here are best enjoyed early in the morning. This tour will take us to the Kemadhöhe, where the morning sun will warm us and give us a refreshing start into the day. The beautiful light we get in the morning can then be digested while enjoying a wonderful mountain breakfast at a guesthouse on a mountain pasture before we return to the valley on a sled.
Together we will enjoy a few hours in the snowy landscape of the Salzburgerland, taking in the breathtaking mountain pastures of the region.
"Snowshoe Evening Light"
We will start this tour when twilight sets in and walk over mountain pastures while enjoying the special white of this time of day and using our headlights to guide our steps.
"Snowshoe Tour for Mother & Child"
While Dad is out skiing, and the older children are receiving ski lessons, mothers and young children should also get the opportunity to enjoy our fabulous winter outside. Together with our youngest guests, we would like to invite you to spend a relaxed morning in our beautiful landscape on snowshoes.
The price for each tour is between 46 EUR and 56 EUR
The tours take place on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.
Registration for the tours is possible until 7 pm the day before the tour.
You can get more information at the reception desk.
A trip in a horse-drawn carriage is certainly one of the most beautiful and romantic ways of discovering Flachau and Salzburgerland in the winter. You will glide through the fairytale winter landscape wrapped up in warm blankets, while your driver will keep you safe and share quite a few interesting and amusing stories.
This "traditional" sport combines skill and exercise in the fresh winter air, in a manner which is particularly social. The right swing is needed – not too much, not too little – to get as close as possible to the target (the dove). Experience true Austrian Schadenfreude when the opposing team’s stone takes a hit, and their anticipated victory suddenly seems far off. But remember: It is not over until the fat lady sings…
