Gamsleiten Kriterium.

The Gamsleiten, or to be more precise, Section 2 of it, is one of the steepest descents in the Alps. The top class treasure hunt event will be taking place again in 2017: the Gamsleiten Kriterium will be held on 16 and 17 April 2017 and will also include numerous side shows and parties.


Wellnesshotel Lürzerhof ****S.

A hotel with a spa is the perfect answer when you need some rest and relaxation after a strenuous day on the slopes. You will find a 2500 m² spa facility and a wide range of culinary treats to be enjoyed in the four-star hotel Lürzerhof in Untertauern at the foot of the wonderful mountain backdrop of Obertauern.



The Gnadenalm, an original mountain lodge with plenty of charm and atmosphere, is located in the middle of the Salzburg countryside. The perfect place to sample some tasty regional and national treats.


Hotel Seekarhaus****S.

At 1,800 metres above sea level, this luxury sports and ski hotel is right in the ski area. Outstanding features are the huge swimming pool facilities, the sauna 'village' with panoramic views, a daily childminding service, and the toque-winning cuisine.


Hotel Kesselspitze****S.

This elegant sports hotel is situated away from all the partying. The in-house ski school is ideal for children; relaxation guaranteed with the Tauern thermal baths and an outdoor whirlpool.


Hotel Rigele-Royal****S.

This family-run hotel is centrally located, very popular because of its excellent service. Glorious - the heated outdoor swimming pool, and the 'Calm & Wellness-Oasis' - an adults-only spa.


Party in the Snow.

There are plenty of beautifully located huts in Obertauern, where you can eat well, have a drink – and naturally soak up the sun when the weather is good.



Many ski fans believe that the best après ski party in Obertauern takes place at the Edelweissalm, right on the piste at 1,850 metres above the sea-level. Its popularity is also explained by the tasty rustic food served here.


Hut Restaurant Almrausch.

A well-deserved break at the Almrausch hut is a must on the Tauernrunde. It is situated right next to the piste and belongs to the hotel and apartment complex Almschlössl & Schrotteralm.
