Stop by …

On foot or on skis – to experience nature is unique

Our hiking trails are in excellent condition with beautiful views. (Don’t forget to look back every once in a while.) Take your time and enjoy the hike to the fullest.

Make sure you wear good shoes and always bring rain protection with you, just to be safe. The weather can change quickly in the mountains. But, as we like to say, there is no such thing as bad weather - just the wrong clothes.

Einkehrschwung im Winter

The 10-person gondola from the Hartkaiser lift takes you comfortably to the mountain station with an amazing view. From there, you get onto piste 80 (blue) and weave down to us for a well deserved break. 

Attention: The slope downhill is closed from 19:00 due to piste preparation with cable winches.
