The resort "Chalets & Glamping Nassfeld" lies right next to the valley station of the Vorhegg family ski area. This ski area, with its uncrowded pistes, double chairlift, tow and 2 practice lifts in Kötschach, is practically perfect for families and beginners. After a day on the piste and out in the snow, a visit to the Aquarena – likewise next to our resort – will provide all the relaxation you crave. If you are looking for even more variety on the pistes, you might decide to drive (free ski bus also available, takes about 25 minutes) to Nassfeld: 110 kilometers of family-friendly slopes, 30 lifts, a snowpark, speed hills and around 850 hours of sunshine in winter, make Nassfeld not only the sunniest, but also one of the most popular ski areas in Carinthia. Whenever you wish, take a break at one of the 25 huts and restaurants in the ski area. The Italian border runs right along the Nassfeld Pass. Which means, during your day of skiing in Carinthia, you can also enjoy a short detour into Italy.
Cross-country skiing, winter hiking, ski touring

Ski tourers also find just what they are looking for in the Nassfeld-Pressegger See region – the Carnic and Gailtal Alps boast numerous rewarding summits! We have yet another tip for adventurers: In the Austrian Alpine Association recreation area, you will discover a 28 meters-high ice tower. In other words, a great opportunity to see if you have what it takes to become an intrepid ice climber.
Sledding and ice-skating
A 2 kilometers-long sled run drops from the Gailberghöhe down to the resort. Toboggans and sleds for use on the natural floodlit sled run can be borrowed at Gasthof Gailberghöhe.

Our excursion tips
Tip 1: Historic Section of Lienz
A drive of roughly 40 minutes will bring you to the historic section of Lienz. The main town of East Tyrol lies at the foot of the Lienz Dolomites and has several sightseeing attractions in store for you.

Standing right on the main square in Lienz is Schloss Liebburg, which nowadays serves as the townhall. The Church of St. Anthony and the Franciscan Monastery are also well worth a visit.

A daytrip is barely enough to discover the many and varied highlights of Weissensee. Summer or winter, it offers numerous recreational activities for the whole family.
Lake Weissensee lies directly at the foot of the Gailtal Alps. After a hike to the Naggler Alm or the Mittagsnock, you will be able to cool off in the crystal-clear water.

Beautiful place and views, well equipped chalets, very friendly staff - highly recommend this resort!
A great place to visit
Had a wonderful week at this park. Everything was new, chalets are from the autumn of 2021, so everything is nice and new. We were here from the last week of September to the first week of October. Insanely quiet! There were three couples of us here in the park. No claim or children: ideal for us! Definitely recommended to get your breakfast at the bakery in the village (Bäckerei Matitz - Stieflbäck), diverse selection and delicious with a cup of cappuccino!
