The taste of holidays at the ALPS RESORTS

No desire to do your own cooking during your vacation? At Restaurant Mitterwirt – popular with locals and guests alike - Sonja Voithofer and her team plate wiener schnitzels, cheesy kasnockn noodles as well as international classics. A tradition of hospitality that actually goes back to the year 1358, since when the Mitterwirt has served as a post station and a popular inn. Our tip: If you are in the mood for something delicious and hearty, you should definitely try the Pinzgauer Bladln, spareribs or pork knuckle (only by advance order)!

Restaurant Mitterwirt is open for you from Wednesday through Monday between 10 AM and midnight (kitchen remains open until 9:30 PM, closed for employee holidays in May and November). Dishes such as pizzas are also available “to go” for you to enjoy back in your apartment. T: +43 660 569 7777

Every first Thursday of the month during the summer months, the Piesendorf Village Market is held directly across from Tauern Suites Mitterwirt. At this popular farmers’ market, local businesses offer a delectable selection of their own homemade products. Our tip: A farmhouse bread with cream cheese, accompanied by a full-flavored cheese and bacon as an outstanding option for a relaxed dinner enjoyed in your holiday apartment. Or simply take a piece of Austria with you to enjoy back in your own home…

Winter in the Hohe Tauern National Park Holiday Region

Ski Holidays in Salzburger Land

The top winter sports in the Hohe Tauern National Park Holiday Region are skiing and snowboarding. During your winter holiday, you can choose between 9 TOP ski areas. The Kitzsteinhorn and Schmittenhöhe ski areas are just a few minutes on the free ski bus or by car from your apartment at Tauern Suites Mitterwirt in Piesendorf. The Ski Alpin Card, which is available at the reception, includes the ski resorts of the Kitzsteinhorn, Schmittenhöhe and Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn.

Carpe Solem Rauris lies right next to the valley station of the Rauriser Hochalmbahnen Family Ski Area with 32 kilometers of beautifully groomed pistes, a children’s practice area right outside the front door, along with a ski school and rental center at the resort.

Other ski resorts in the region include Weisssee Gletscherwelt family ski area in Uttendorf as well as Wildkogel Arena in Bramberg Neukirchen.

Snowshoeing, ski touring and winter hiking

Away from the pistes, too, you have ample opportunities to experience the most beautiful side of winter: Whether gliding along the tracked cross-country trails of the Bodenhaus-Loipe in Rauris or between Piesendorf and Zell am See-Kaprun, trudging along the marked winter hiking paths or with snowshoes on your feet through the fresh snow, taking a romantic sleigh ride or enjoying a high-spirited sledding expedition with your family amid the nature of the National Park – the range of winter sports is enormous. Our reception team will be happy to help you plan each day of your winter holiday. And you can count on them having a few insider tips of their own to share with you!  
More and more winter sports fans are looking for peace & quiet and genuine nature experiences away from the popular pistes – which is precisely what you will find during a ski tour. Our region gives beginners a chance to enjoy a first taste of this increasingly popular sport on select ski-touring routes. One example is Ski Touring Center Raurisertal, where one route even begins right next to Carpe Solem Rauris.  For your mountain experiences away from the pistes, we strongly recommend the services of a mountain guide (the reception will be happy to provide you with contact details).
For experienced ski tourers, Raurisertal with its Kolm Saigurn valley head is virtually a must: In this “Golden Valley of the Alps”, the options range from a laid-back tour up the Kolmkarspitz to sweat-inducing climbs to the summits of the Hoher Sonnblick (3106 m) or Hocharn (3254 m). Tours are generally possible until May / June.

Something truly special: National Park Excursions

We have one more tip for your winter holiday with us: From December until the end of March, a National Park Ranger will lead you on snowshoes to wonderful places such as the Rauris Virgin Forest or allow you to participate in wildlife feedings in Habachtal. These tours are free to our guests. Take a look at the current Ranger Program!

And now just imagine: After such a day spent in the fresh mountain air and the snow, returning to your “holiday home”, stretching out on the sofa of your apartment and getting ready for a “round” of Netflix. Or indulging yourself at the wellness area with infinity pool at Carpe Solem Rauris or in the organic sauna at Tauern Suites Mitterwirt…



Recommended attractions

Ibex near Großglockner High Alpine Road

Grossglockner High-Alpine Road

This 48 km-long scenic road is one of Austria’s most popular excursion destinations. And rightly so: From the toll station in Ferleiten, this high-mountain road – opened in 1935 – meanders its way through 36 switchbacks, flanked by imposing mountains, all the way to the pilgrimage town of Heiligenblut in Carinthia as well as up to the Kaiser Franz Josefs Höhe: where Austria’s highest mountain, the Grossglockner (elev. 3798 m), the Johannisberg and Pasterze glacier appear almost close enough to touch. You should definitely schedule an entire day for this excursion: Along the Grossglockner High-Alpine Road, there are countless opportunities to take snapshots and stretch your legs. 11 info points also provide you with fascinating insights into construction of this scenic road as well as the flora and fauna of Hohe Tauern National Park. And keep your eyes peeled - there’s always a chance you’ll see a marmot crossing the road in front of you or an ibex perched on the mountainside basking in the sunshine!

Rauris Primeval Forest - Nationalpark Hohe Tauern

Kolm Saigurn

Kolm Saigurn in Raurisertal is one of the most beautiful valley heads in Hohe Tauern National Park. In summer, it attracts hikers and mountaineers. The most popular destinations are – also suitable for families – Rauris Virgin Forest, the Durchgangalmen as well as the Waterfall Path. And for avid alpinists, the Hocharn (3254 m) as well as the Hoher Sonnblick (3106 m), which is also the site of Europe’s highest permanently staffed weather station. Most mountain tours begin at the Lenzanger car park, reachable by means of a 5 km-long toll road (National Park Sommercard partner, with a bus running to the valley head). Incidentally, not far from the toll station you can also put your treasure-hunting skills to the test: at the Bodenhaus gold-panning site, with a little bit of luck you might even pluck slivers of gold from the stream! At the Rauris valley head itself, mountain huts, the Ammererhof and the Naturfreundehaus (tip: children’s playground and Kneipp spa) give you the opportunity to enjoy a refreshment break and take in the magical scenery: In Kolm Saigurn, you will encounter one 3000 m peak and glacier after another, while cows and horses graze on lush alpine meadows and waterfalls rumble in the background.

bird of prey show in Rauris

Valley of Vultures

In Raurisertal, rare bearded vultures have been circling overhead in Krumltal since 1986. With a little bit of luck, they can be observed along with golden eagles, griffon vultures, marmots and ibex. To improve your chances, we suggest joining a National Park Excursion led by a National Park Ranger (July until September, free with the National Park Sommercard) Krumltal is a side valley of Raurisertal, an easy hike along a marked theme path (forestry road) to the Bräualm taking roughly 1 ½ hours. Insider tip: Pay a visit to the Lechnerhäusl, a small alpine inn at the entrance to the valley not far from the car park (their desserts are heavenly!). If you would like to learn more about birds of prey in Hohe Tauern National Park, I recommend the “Kings of the Air” National Park Exhibition in Rauris (in the small community known as Wörth), or attend the Bird of Prey Show at the Rauriser Hochalm, where Peter will be happy to share his vast knowledge about these creatures with you.

Krimml Waterfalls at Hohe Tauern National Park

Krimml Waterfalls

Krimml Waterfalls are an imposing excursion destination for the whole family (also a partner of the National Park Sommercard): Via the 4 km-long Waterfall Path with lookout points along the way, you will come right up to the thunderous torrents of Austria’s biggest waterfalls – and don’t be surprised if you get a little bit wet! Dropping a total of 380 vertical meters, Krimml Waterfalls are an amazing natural spectacle and actually the fifth-highest falls in the world. The lowest falls can be reached in approximately 5 minutes from the ticket hut at the entrance (also handicapped-accessible), after which the Waterfall Path gets steeper and leads through cool forest. My tip: Use the Pinzgauer Lokalbahn train to travel from Zell am See or Piesendorf to Krimml – you can ride it for free with the included National Park Sommercard.

children discovering nature at Hohe Tauern National Park

National Park Worlds

A fascinating 1800 m² exhibition for big and small in Mittersill, introducing you (also playfully) to Hohe Tauern National Park, its inhabitants and unique features. One highlight of this exhibition is a 360° panoramic world. In Hohe Tauern National Park, the biggest national park in Austria, you will find numerous self-guided themed paths (including Rauris Virgin Forest, “Kings of the Air” in Rauris, the Emerald Path in Hollersbach and the Glacier Paths in Uttendorf) as well as exhibitions (incl. the National Park Gallery at Gipfelwelt 3000 on the Kitzsteinhorn). From July until mid-September, you also have the possibility of participating in one of the popular National Park Excursions, with trained National Park Rangers introducing you to some true natural jewels. These guided – and highly recommended! – tours are (just like the National Park Museum) free with the National Park Sommercard. Mittersill can also be reached on the Pinzgauer Lokalbahn – free with the National Park Sommercard. Incidentally, the “Kiosk + Lounge” at the train station serves what is probably the best coffee in this small shopping town along with cake made fresh every day.

Weißsee glacial lake in Uttendorf

Weisssee Glacier World

By gondola (National Park Sommercard partner), it takes roughly 20 minutes to ride from the valley station at the Enzingerboden up to Berghotel Rudolfshütte at 2315 m. When you get there, the first thing to do is enjoy the view. Before you lies the turquoise Weisssee, surrounded by mighty 3000 m peaks. One very popular mountain tour leads to the Kalser Törl (2525 m) and from there to the Medelzkopf (2760 m), past countless cairns that are also excellent photo motifs. For a truly memorable experience we suggest the fixed-cable climbs in the Weisssee area: the Kronprinz Rudolf via ferrata is ideal for beginners, while the “Kristallklettersteig” will definitely pose a challenge, even for experienced climbers. In winter, the Rudolfshütte is a popular starting point for rewarding ski tours to the top of the Stubacher Sonnblick, the Granatspitze or the Hocheiser. And don’t forget: The small-though-delightful ski area in Uttendorf in Salzburger Land is also ideal for families.

High Alpine Reservoir in Kaprun

High-Mountain Reservoirs

There are several reasons why the Kaprun High-Mountain Reservoirs in Kaprun are so impressive: the location of the turquoise reservoirs surrounded by 3000 m summits, the fascinating history of how they were constructed as well as the astonishing technological achievement which they represent (guided tours of the dam are possible). Even the journey up to the reservoirs is an amazing experience in its own right: At the Kesselfall in Kaprun, you will board a bus that will take you (including some really dark tunnels) to Europe’s biggest open funicular. Then, you will continue by bus, past the first reservoir and the popular Fürthermoaralm, until you reach the fascinating Moserboden reservoir at 2040 m, reminiscent of a Norwegian fjord. If you wish to take advantage of this opportunity for a short hike, we suggest the Herb Path leading from the Moserboden reservoir in roughly 45 minutes down to the Fürthermoaralm, where you will be greeted by delicious blueberry dumplings dusted with cinnamon sugar. This popular excursion destination in Salzburger Land is open from May until October.

Your summer holiday in Salzburger Land

Holidays amid intact nature

Mountains, glaciers, lakes and waterfalls. Mighty 3000ers and snow-covered summits such as the Kitzsteinhorn, Grossglockner and Grossvenediger, gentle green alpine pastures, the Pinzgauer Grasberge and the Hohe Tauern. Between them, one rushing mountain stream after another. Every bit as diverse as the nature of Hohe Tauern National Park which surrounds the ALPS RESORTS apartment resorts Tauern Suites Mitterwirt Piesendorf, Tauernlodges Uttendorf and Carpe Solem Rauris, are the opportunities for your excursions and new experiences during your Austrian summer holidays.

Hiking and mountaineering

You (and even your kids) won’t waste a second before your hiking boots are laced up and your rucksack is packed: Countless marked hiking paths and alpine trails – 295 km of them in Raurisertal alone! – as well as self-guided themed paths lead you out to mountain huts where you are greeted by a full selection of well-earned snacks including crispy-fresh farmhouse bread and bacon. Through cool forests where you will be able to take one refreshing breath after another, high meadows where the cows and horses happily nibble away on fine alpine herbs. Past impressive waterfalls. Always with time for a break next to a mountain spring or babbling stream – your tired legs will thank you for it, appreciative of the refreshment you give them!

With a little bit of luck, you will encounter marmots, ibex and golden eagles circling overhead. And perhaps even catch sight of rare bearded vultures, which were reintroduced into Rauriser Krumltal back in 1986. Panning for gold in the “Golden Valley of the Alps” or scouring the “Valley of Emeralds”, Habachtal, you might even strike it rich. And as you know: When there’s something to discover, hikes are twice as exciting for the kids!

National Park excursions in summer

Two of the most popular National Park excursions lead you into Habachtal and the “Valley of Vultures”. A National Park Ranger will accompany you to some of the region’s most impressive natural jewels, explaining the flora and fauna, the history and unique highlights of Hohe Tauern National Park, which happens to be the biggest nature sanctuary in Austria. Set out on a “Journey to the Antarctic” inside the Weisssee glacial zone, or hearken to the call of the “Rauris Virgin Forest” … So much is waiting to be discovered!

These excursions are free to our guests. For further details, we invite you to take a look at the Hohe Tauern National Park Summer Program!

National Park Sommercard

With the National Park Sommercard, you can select one free service daily inside the Hohe Tauern National Park Holiday Region, which includes TOP Salzburger Land excursion destinations such as Grossglockner High-Alpine Road, Krimml Waterfalls, the National Park Museum, summer lifts, swimming pools as well as the Hinkelsteinbad in Piesendorf and the Sonnblickbad in Raurisertal, panning for gold and much more. Public transportation between Krimml, Piesendorf, Zell am See and Raurisertal is likewise free of charge!

And best of all: During your summer holidays spent at Tauern Suites Mitterwirt, Tauernlodges Uttendorf and Carpe Solem Rauris, the National Park Sommercard is automatically included in the price! Valid from 1.5. through 31.10., for the duration of your stay – as soon as you move into your apartment at our holiday resort.

Summer Lifts

With practically no physical exertion whatsoever, our popular summer lifts in the region will carry you up the mountain, where you are greeted by wonderful scenery and unforgettable mountain experiences. In summertime, the lifts offer you – families, in particular – exciting excursion destinations and countless memorable moments: the Rauriser Hochalmbahnen with a gold-panning site and bird-of-prey station, the Wildkogel Arena with its Slide Path (10 different slides ranging in length from 22 to 53 m!), the Schmittenhöhe including “Schmidolin’s Baptism of Fire”, “Ghost Mountain” in St. Johann Alpendorf, and Kitzsteinhorn Glacier with the ICE ARENA and Gipfelwelt 3000, boasting Salzburg’s highest viewing platform, aptly named the “Top of Salzburg”.

Tip: included with the National Park Sommercard: Rauriser Hochalmbahnen, Weisssee Glacier World, Wildkogel Arena, Grossarl Panorama Lifts…

Biking and adventure during your summer holidays  

Marked mountain bike trails, leisurely E-bike and bicycle tours as well as challenging biking adventures such as the 3 MTB trails on the Kitzsteinhorn which, spanning a total of 12 km and 1500 vertical meters, are some of the most challenging in all of Salzburger Land – there is no doubt that 2-wheeling is a marvelous way to spend your holiday in Salzburger Land! Also possible: a stage or two of the 270 km-long Tauernradweg, which leads from Krimml all the way to Passau – past Piesendorf and Taxenbach at the entrance to Raurisertal.

If you would prefer to enjoy a bird’s eye view of our holiday region, we suggest booking a tandem paragliding flight with “Flieg mit Tom” or a helicopter tour with “SennAir”. You can also explore the National Park by water, on a guided rafting or canyoneering tour, for example…  

The Wonders of Water

The abundance of water inside Hohe Tauern National Park is absolutely amazing. Whether you gaze in awe at Krimml Waterfalls, refresh your hiking-weary feet in an icy-cold stream, try your hand at stand-up paddling on Zeller See, or simply take a big gulp of spring water straight from the source – the immense power of water is tangible everywhere. Incidentally: Whenever you turn on the faucet in your apartment, you will always be able to enjoy highest-quality drinking water!

Other excursion tips (also suitable for families): The Rauriser UrQuell in upper Raurisertal is an astonishing place of power, while the Waterfall Path in Kolm Saigurn at the foot of the Hoher Sonnblick leads across a suspension footbridge and past 5 imposing waterfalls. The Kitzlochklamm in Taxenbach and Sigmund Thun Klamm with its own lake in Kaprun are 2 gorges that captivate countless visitors in summer.
