Winter activities

Skiing, snowboarding... fun on the slopes

The Nassfeld, one of the top-10 skiing areas in Austria, is only 6km away.

Take a comfortable ride on the free ski bus, or drive your car to the “Millennium Express” cable-car station in the valley, which will take you right to the heart of the “Skiarena Nassfeld”, Carinthia’s largest and most modern ski resort.

You are certain to have unlimited fun skiing on 110km of excellently-groomed slopes. There is something for everyone on the Nassfeld with slopes in all categories of difficulty ranging from a beginners’ area with a “magic carpet”, to a European Cup slope. The wide, family-friendly slopes are ideal for families with children. Freestylers and adrenaline-junkies can really get their money’s worth in the snowboard area, the half-pipe or in the snow-cross park.

Naturally we have a heated basement in the hotel for your skis and equipment with a ski-boot drier and a stand for the skis.

Cross-country skiing

More than 100 km of valley and mountain tracks

The excellently-prepared and well-maintained tracks guarantee our cross-country skiing guests loads of fun.

The whole valley is traversed by the lines of the cross-country tracks and so you can also explore and admire the unique natural scenery along the River Gail in winter.

Winter hiking

Have you ever heard total silence?

Hiking in winter is a small inside tip suggested by the hotel owners. Here you can really let your mind and soul wander free and forget about all your daily cares. The cleared winter hiking paths right in front of the hotel enable you to explore the snowy scenery on foot.

We will gladly lend you a pair of snow shoes so that you can go out and discover the countryside covered in deep snow.

Ski touring

Something just for the proficient and the fit

Here in our region you will find numerous routes and lonely peaks. Shorter tours are possible from right in front of the hotel, but otherwise the Carnic Alps and the Gailtal Alps over on the opposite side of the valley provide the perfect possibility.

Guided tours are also offered in our region for beginners and for the more advanced.

Ice skating

Doing laps on crystal clear ice

An up to 40cm thick surface that is guaranteed to freeze has given Lake Weissensee a unique reputation throughout Europe. Each year, loads of ice-skating fanatics come to glide their blades across the crystal clear ice. Lake Weissensee is about 45 minutes away by car.

As the second largest lake in the area, Lake Presseggen can also be recommended for ice-skating. With oval skating tracks, areas for curling and ice-hockey, the natural ice surface of this 55 hectare lake also invites you for a unique sporting experience on ice. By car it is just 20 minutes away from the hotel. 

Sledging / tobogganing


The sledge / toboggan run at the hotel

Kids in particular are really taken by sledging or tobogganing. On the toboggan run right next to the hotel this special kind of fun turns many an adult into a child again. Bobsleighs and sledges can be hired from us at the hotel and can be used at any time.

Curling (Eisstockschiessen)


Eisstockschiessen, similar to curling, an old and traditional kind of sport

Whether it is on one of the frozen lakes like Lake Presseggen, or on a specially prepared natural ice rink like the one in Tröpolach, amateur or expert players can show off their full talent in our region. This form of curling is very popular with the locals.
