Austria

Highlights

  • A firm favourite with groups, in authentic Austria

Why choose Oberlungau?

Charming, unspoilt villages and an enviable snow record stretching well into April make Oberlungau one of our most sought-after destinations. If you choose our St Michael accommodation, you’ll be staying in a lively village with a compact centre featuring shops, bars, cafés and a bowling alley that’s a firm favourite with groups. With all the essential amenities in resort, everything you need is an easy walk from the hotel. 

Moving on to Gmünd, this historic walled town centres on its large square, with architecture and alleyways dating back to the Middle Ages. Groups love the authentic, unspoilt atmosphere as well as the town’s good range of facilities. Just a few minutes from Gmünd, the peaceful villages of Rennweg and Malta offer some basic amenities. 

A little farther afield, you’ll find the scenic, historic settlements of Mauterndorf and Mariapfarr. Mauterndorf, dominated by an impressive fortress dating back to the Middle Ages, is often used in film sets. Many of its narrow, winding streets and rainbow-coloured buildings date back several centuries.

 

On the piste

Oberlungau’s three ski areas – Katschberg, Grosseck – Speiereck and Fanningberg – are served by a network of modern lifts and a wide range of open runs with good progression. Replacing the chairlift in St Michael with a gondola has improved the Speiereck experience, with skiers now transported to the top station in less than ten minutes. Groups keen to spread their wings can upgrade to the Lungo pass, which covers Oberlungau and Obertauern.

Oberlungau’s ski schools take their high teaching standards seriously, which is reflected in the consistently highly ratings they receive from our groups. Beginners tend to start on the nursery slopes in the villages of St Michael or Mauterndorf, or they head for the uncrowded slopes of Fanningberg.

Great snow cover, wide-open pistes and a wide range of red runs make the Katschberg popular with intermediate skiers. Rated one of the best in the Alps, the six-kilometre A1 slope, from the top of the Katschberg to St Margarethen, is one to set your sights on.
