The mountain region of Dachstein-West covers 4 ski-areas: Dachstein West, St. Martin, Karkogel and Lungötz. This region offers a great diversity of activities and lives up to its reputation as a family-friendly resort. Ideal for a family holiday in a typical chalet. The natural surroundings are simply magnificent. Towards the south, you can admire the peaks of the Hohe Tauern, an impressive row of mountain tops. To the west, the view extends over the mountain ranges of Tennen, the Hohen Göll and the Alps of Berchtesgaden.
Dachstein-West is known as a family-friendly ski region with its advantageous offers and moderately priced combination passes for parents and children. Kindergarten facilities and childrens schools are close at hand and well organised.
The typical mountain villages such as Abtenau, Lungötz, Annaberg and Zwieselalm each have their distinct features. The quiet village of Abtenau is great for children, with limited skiing possibilities, but with a fast shuttle-bus connection to the heights of Lungötz, where you can access the ski-area of Dachstein West. The new toboggan run in Abtenau is illuminated, ensuring snow feats till after dark! Additionally, Dachstein-West is also an excellent hiking area for winter walks, especially around Annaberg. You will often find walking paths in the direct proximity of your cottage. Snowboarders value Russbach as a great departure point, from where they can conquer the whole region. And cross-country skiing is highly recommended here as well! And did you know that our chalets and cottages are often within walking distance from the slopes, training lifts or langlauf loipes?
For a touch of culture, a day trip to the beautiful city of Salzburg, at 45 minutes from here, is a real must-do. Enjoy a great winter sports holiday with your children; you will never be bored in Dachstein-West!
