Snowbowl Fun

Obertauern is alike a bowl full of snow at the top of the Austrian Alps. Beatles shot their Help movie here, as it offers 360 snow panoramas and over a 100 kilometres of slopes. Snowboarders love it. Skiers adore it. Snow trekkers come here for the unique atmosphere.

Everything is close by

Apres ski

When in Austrian Alps, why not try some of the local delicacies, that Austrian emperors used to enjoy at breakfast, like Keiserschmarn (fluffy shredded pancakes with jam) or Melange (Viennese style cappuccino) or kasnock - or a nice crispy Wiener Schnitzel. Plenty of bars to sip some hot pear schnaps at, as well as nice hotel wellness with sauna and massages to warm up after a day in the snow.
