Winter holiday in the twin holiday paradise of Altenmarkt- Zauchensee
Genuine. Friendly. Sporty: Altenmarkt-Zauchensee attracts guests with its wealth of relaxing and sporting winter activities at two levels surrounded by the impressive backdrop of the Dachstein and Hohe Tauern mountain ranges.
Savour the gentle slopes of the ski circuit Radstadt-Altenmarkt (17 km of pistes, 8 ski lifts) with the children's paradise "Fichtelland". This ski area is an insider tip amongst families, pleasure skiers and beginners.
The World Cup resort of Zauchensee with the ski circuit Zauchensee-Flachauwinkl (65 km of pistes, 25 ski lifts) is the highest and therefore most snow-sure resort in the Salzburger Sportwelt. The home town of downhill world champion Michael Walchhofer promises great skiing from December to April with the motto from your hotel straight onto the slopes of the challenging ski area and fabulous freeride paradise. New this year: the ultra-modern 6-seater Gamskogel II chairlift (length 853 m, altitude difference 248 m, 2,600 person capacity per hour). Enjoy a high standard of comfort with weather protection hoods, children's safety bar and conveyor belt at double the speed of the previous lift.
Plus – you can leave your car standing in the garage during your holiday. Everything you need can be reached easily on foot - ski school, ski rental, hotel etc.
Whilst following the tracks in the cross country paradise of Altenmarkt-Zauchensee, you're in the "cross country philosophic" centre of the Salzburger Sportwelt. The "Flying Coach“ – a world exclusive - gives tips along the cross country trails. 240 km of groomed trails pamper classic cross country skiers, skaters as well as expert and pleaure-skiers. Enjoy the tranquility of nature whilst winter walking along 30 km of cleared footpaths and when snowshoeing you can explore the "moonstruck“ moon trail or the „shrewd“ farmer's sayings trail. A fun toboggan run on one of the three toboggan runs is a must on an unforgettable winter holiday in Altenmarkt-Zauchensee, as well as a romantic horse-drawn sleigh ride into the Zauch valley. In addition to skiing and gentle winter activities a visit to the adventure Therme Amadé Spa promises a fun time swimming for all the family.
You can also enjoy the shopping paradise with heart in Altenmarkt's lively resort centre and culinary moments in the many restaurants and cafés.
Savour the atmosphere during the Advent.in di Berg (Advent in the Mountains) programme, at the romantic Winter.Markt (Christmas Market), the Silvester.Feier der Sinne (New Year's Celebration of the Senses) or on the fascinating telescopic Sternen.Führung (Star Guide). Be a spectator at the one-and-only vintage car meet - the Historic Ice Trophy or Austria's largest children's ski race, the Kidstrophy etc.
Altenmarkt-Zauchensee – in the heart of the Salzburger Sportwelt and the Ski amadé with 760 km of piste and 270 ski lifts – counts as one of the most varied and friendly holiday resorts in Salzburger Land. Experience double possibilities arising from the combination of the two resorts: Whilst Altenmarkt, the extensive resort situated in a wide valley (842 m), oozes genuine charm and attracts with its compact ski area, the World Cup resort of Zauchensee (1.350 m) boasts a challenging ski area complemented by the highest level of comfort and pure nature.
