Luxurious Chalet in Hohentauern in Murtal

If you long for a relaxing holiday home holiday in Austria's mountains, a chalet in the Almdorf Hohentauern is the right choice. The chalet resort, built only a few years ago, impresses with its location in the center of Hohentauern, Austria's first sports village. More than 20 "two-thousanders" stand in line around the 68 holiday homes. This makes the Almdorf the perfect starting point for excursions into the surrounding mountains. Regardless of whether you are planning your family holiday in a holiday home or would like to experience a sporty and active hiking or skiing holiday with friends: Hohentauern is the northernmost point of the Styrian Mur Valley and is perfectly suited for everyone who wants to experience relaxation or who really want to work off in nature .

Modern chalets with private spa - wellness holidays in Styria

With a living space of 70 - 140 m², the Almdorf offers a comprehensive portfolio of different types of holiday homes. The Tauernchalets with space for up to 70 m² are particularly popular for smaller families with 4 to 6 people.

All those who enjoy their holidays in the green Murtal with larger families, friends or acquaintances are spot on if they choose one of the up to 140 m² large and for max. Book suitable wellness chalets for 10 people.

The range of different domiciles in the Almdorf is as individual as your personal requirements for your perfect "holiday home". But all chalets have one thing in common:

The modern equipment, combined with the sustainable wood construction, ensure a pleasant living environment. Most chalets also have a private spa. For you this means that after your holiday adventures in the Murtal you can relax "back at home" with wellness in your holiday home.

After a ski tour in winter, a break in the sauna will help you regain your strength. Let your gaze wander out into the mountains of Styria and let your mind wander - many holidaymakers have lost their thoughts while relaxing in the whirlpool and dreamed of another world.

Perfect location close to the slopes

Located at the foot of the Triebenstein, one of more than 20 mountains with an altitude of more than 2,000 meters, the chalets are in the immediate vicinity of the ski slope. With around 12 kilometers of slopes, the ski area is relatively small. However, our holiday guests particularly appreciate the quality of the slopes that have been awarded the Styrian seal of approval and the pleasure of skiing away from the après-ski hot spots.

If you are in the mood for more "winter fun" away from the slopes and the hustle and bustle, the ski area in Lachtal 40 kilometers away or the 4 mountain ski area in Schladming is ideal for a day trip within the borders of Styria.

Ski tourers and snowshoe hikers will find an Eldorado for their sporting passion on their doorstep.

The next entrance to the cross-country ski run is also only around 200 m from the holiday resort: a good 18 kilometers of untracked, perfectly groomed trails are waiting to be explored by you!

In summer, the holiday homes score with their central location in one of the most pristine and most beautiful hiking areas in the Styrian Mur Valley. It is not for nothing that many enthusiastic holidaymakers often speak of “Austria's Canada” when they look back on their hiking holiday in Hohentauern. The Keltenberg nature adventure park can also be reached on foot within a few minutes. With the Hohentauern guest card, which we include for you, entry to the nature park is free!

In view of our enthusiasm for the tranquility around our holiday complex, you may not believe it: but motorsport fans will also get their money's worth in Upper Styria. The Red Bull Ring in Spielberg is only about 35 kilometers away, which is about 30 minutes by car.

By the way: we know that all these mountain adventures also make you hungry. How good that the next supermarket is only max. 300 meters from your holiday home.

Hohentauern Gästecard

As soon as you arrive at your holiday home you will receive your free guest card. In addition to discounts in many restaurants or with service providers in Hohentauern, with the guest card you also receive a discount of 50% on a journey on the toll road up to the Edelrautehütte. And entry to the Keltenberg Nature Adventure Park, not far from your chalet, is free! In addition, there are further discounts on various mountain railways, excursion destinations and adventures throughout the Murtal. So you have even more of your holiday in the holiday home and also save money!

Green fee for golfers

Be ready for perfect fairways and greens in the Murtal golf region! At our reception, you can get a voucher for the Murtal guest green fee. This allows you to enjoy great tee-offs in the golf clubs Lungau, Murau-Kreischberg, Mariahof and Murtal for only € 50.- each (instead of € 76.- to € 84.-).

Winter holidays in Hohentauern

Hohentauern is probably one of the most snow-sure winter sports resorts in Styria. For your next vacation in a holiday home, that means: landscapes covered in deep snow, white glitter carpets, perfectly groomed ski slopes and cross-country ski trails are waiting for you right outside the front door!

Families and winter sports enthusiasts can also experience a lot away from the ski slopes: how about a snowshoe hike or a ski tour through the Styrian mountains? A leisurely stroll along the winter hiking trail offers the perfect opportunity to relax and unwind at the northernmost point of the Mur Valley.

Skiing Holidays next to the ski slopes

What would a winter holiday in a holiday home be without a ski slope? If you are looking for an insider tip for leisure skiers, you will quickly find it here in Upper Styria:

With 4 ski lifts and 12 kilometers of slopes, the ski area right next to your holiday home is relatively small. Families with children or winter sports enthusiasts looking for relaxation could hardly find a more suitable ski destination than Hohentauern. Far away from après-ski parties, where there is closeness to nature and "soft tourism", you can enjoy slopes of all levels of difficulty. The slopes have been awarded the Styrian slope seal of quality and thus promise the best conditions for a successful ski holiday.

There is a ski school for children or beginners, and the ski shop with ski rental is right next to the Hohentauern holiday village. Guests of our chalets in the Almdorf Hohentauern are only about 200 m apart from pure skiing fun in the Murtal.

If you want to visit a larger ski area during your holiday in Hohentauern, you can take a day trip to the Lachtal, 40 km away, also located in the Murtal. Schladming, the most famous ski area in Styria, can be reached within 40 minutes by car.

Cross-country skiing in Hohentauern

Only 150 m from your chalet or holiday home is the next entry into the 18 km network of trails in Hohentauern. Numerous day visitors and of course families who spend their winter holidays in the Murtal rave about the cross-country ski trails in Hohentauern.

What is particularly appreciated about the trails: no crowds of cross-country skiers, no queuing. Pure winter fun. Lots of space. The opportunity to explore the landscape at your own pace, to consciously experience this somewhat different, quiet winter sports resort in Styria.

Some of the trails that have been awarded the Styrian seal of approval are covered with snow, the entire route is perfectly groomed and offers sporting challenges of all levels of difficulty.

Winter holiday fun in Murtal - Styria

Even away from the groomed ski slopes and cross-country trails, you get your money's worth in Hohentauern. Anyone who has ever visited Upper Styria knows the mountains around our holiday homes. Mountains that are made for winter sports in the midst of untouched natural landscapes.

Demanding ski mountaineering on the Geierkogel, which is over 2,000 m high, or leisurely ski tours on the big stallion - in Hohentauern ski tourers will find everything their hearts desire. A small excerpt from the extensive range of different ski tours in Hohentauern and Murtal can be found on the tourism association's website.

Take the toboggan taxi up to the Edelrautehütte, enjoy a hearty snack or a Kaiserschmarren up there at 1,800 m above sea level, and then take the toboggan down the mountain. - Sounds like an unforgettable afternoon during your next winter vacation in the holiday home, doesn't it? You can borrow the sledges from the ski shop or from the Edelrautehütte.

You can explore Hohentauern on a “big foot” on a snowshoe hike. You can tramp over white glitter carpets over gentle hills up to mountain peaks. Guided snowshoe tours can be booked on site, our team will be happy to advise you on the range of guided hikes before you arrive.

We have kept an important tip until the end: legs that have become tired from snowshoeing, cross-country skiing or skiing can best recover in the feel-good atmosphere of your holiday home. So plan enough time for relaxation “at home” in the evening!

Daniel's Favorite Places

Daniel Peinhaupt

I have been a “holiday homie” for more than 8 years and I work at ALPS RESORTS. As resort manager at Feriendorf & Almdorf Hohentauern, I have shared insider tips for excursions in Upper Styria with many guests. Now I am in the marketing and PR department for ALPS: If you follow our postings on Instagram or Facebook, you will probably have read articles I have contributed. Because my profession requires me to travel a lot in Austria, I know many different hidden corners of our beautiful country. That said, the idyllic small community of Hohentauern is definitely one of my personal highlights. Why? - Read for yourself!

I hope to see you soon in the "Canada of Austria"!


Tip 1: Naturerlebnispark Keltenberg

Just a stone’s throw from your holiday home, Naturerlebnispark Hohentauern awaits with some truly great attractions including the longest dry slide in Austria! The Keltenberg brings nature to life! On the forest pathway or while walking along the Barefoot Path, you are able to experience the forest with all your senses. Along the way, interactive stations give you an opportunity to sharpen your awareness for the flora & fauna of Upper Styria. A guided tour of the old mine tunnel lets you immerse yourself, literally and figuratively, in the history of Hohentauern as a mining settlement. Afterwards, you will have an opportunity to put your rock-climbing skills to the test in a practice climbing area. When you get to the top, you will be able to slither down the longest dry slide in Austria back to the original starting point of this exciting tour!

Tip 2: Therme Aqualux

So, the weather gods not cooperating today? Are the skies above Hohentauern obscured by heavy rain clouds and you have zero desire to go hiking or mountain biking? No problem! Why not visit Therme Aqualux in Fohnsdorf instead! Awaiting holidaymakers in search of rejuvenation – just 30 km from your holiday home – is this “Spa of Light” with its thermal pools and wellness areas!

And if, in the course of the day, the sun happens to peek out from behind the clouds, you will also be able to have fun in the outdoor areas of this spa resort!

Tip 3: Red Bull Ring

Are you relishing the tranquility in Hohentauern and enjoying a peaceful timeout in your chalet? But could you still handle a little bit of action? In that case, you should definitely head to the “Red Bull Ring”! A guided tour with an expert will give you a fascinating behind-the-scenes glimpse into a course that hosts the world elite of the motorsports scene every year. Numerous annual events set fans’ pulses racing with pure excitement – regardless of whether the competition is on 2 or 4 wheels, an exhilarating Formula One matchup or a truck race. And it’s all just 35 minutes from where you are staying! Incidentally, you can also show off your own driving skills at the Red Bull Ring Driving Center, on the off-road course or in the KTM X-Bow.

Tip 4: Der Wilde Berg in Mautern

270 Alpine animals, a play park, a kids’ zone and lots of play stations – all of this and more awaits you at "Der Wilde Berg" in Mautern! This Alpine zoo is an easy 30-minute drive from where you are staying. In the wildlife park, you will discover wolves, bear, owls, donkeys and ibex, as well as many other animal inhabitants. Afterwards, you will be ready to make a beeline for the play park, where the Moon Swing will give you the opportunity to turn everything “upside down”!

At the kids’ zoo, your youngsters will be able to pet the animals – though as we know, the grown-ups get lots of joy out of stroking the cute little pigs, curious bunny rabbits and bleating goats as well.

Tip 5: Fairytale Forest Styria

Really: If you are spending your family holiday in a place that’s as magical as Hohentauern, then a visit to Fairytale Forest Styria is an absolute must. Roughly 40 km from where you are staying, you and your children will be able to disappear into a forest in the heart of Murtal, a fairytale world where the animals can talk and famous witches, princesses and fairytale heroes each tell their own stories. And in the amusement park, your kids can work off any excess energy they still happen to have, bouncing on the trampoline or climbing to their heart’s content, while you indulge yourself in a giant schnitzel at the restaurant.

Summer holidays in Hohentauern in Styria

"To be a little closer to heaven", with your thoughts wandering into the distance and enjoying the unique view of the Trieben and Rottenmann Tauern mountains from the terrace of your holiday home - this is a special kind of experience for every mountain-loving chalet holidaymaker.

Hohentauern has a history of more than 2000 years as a pass crossing. The Romans built the first paved pass road over the "Tauern". Even if the town of Hohentauern can be easily reached by car, it has been spared from mass tourism to this day.

The smallest municipality in Styria in terms of inhabitants is therefore ideally suited for holidaymakers looking for peace and quiet who appreciate a break in a chalet in the mountains of Austria.

The summer holiday in the Murtal has a lot to offer not only for families, but also for groups of friends and couples. In combination with our extensive range of holiday homes and chalets in Hohentauern, the leisure activities in the Mur Valley offer an ideal package for a successful holiday in Styria.

Hiking holidays in Hohentauern

Carefree hiking pleasure in the Murtal - which nature lover doesn't long for it. Whether families, leisurely hikers or top mountaineers, there are countless destinations in Austria's first sports village. And the best: Your holiday home or chalet is the ideal starting point for these mountain adventures in Styria. You can go up to heights of up to 2,500 m directly from the holiday home.

You have to visit crystal clear mountain lakes such as the Frozen Lake, the Scheiblseen and the Stegerteich. Even if a jump into the (really) cool water is only dared by hard-boiled hikers, it is a very special moment for everyone to pause for a moment after the ascent and marvel at the beauty of these hidden places in green Styria .

As a stop-off point, we recommend a break at the Edelrautehütte at 1,800 m above sea level. From there it is not far to the tour around the Scheiblsee, a mountain lake embedded in the picturesque backdrop of the Styrian mountains.

The view from breathtaking peaks such as the Großer Bösenstein (2,448 m) and picturesque valleys such as the Pölsen and Triebental make it easy to lose yourself in your thoughts on a hike through the Styrian natural landscapes. You can be sure of many encounters with local forest dwellers!

There is also a very special family hike: on the way up to the Edelrautehütte, fairytale characters tell you the legend of the "Gretl vom Bösenstein". Look forward to the story! - The accompanying fairy tale book is available at the reception during your stay in your chalet or holiday home.

And for all those who would much rather relax in the chalet's whirlpool and marvel at the mountains from there, the following leisure activities could help to conquer their weaker self:

The 7 heavenly cloud banks are a selection of various hiking routes. There are cloud banks to rest along the tours. If you hike at least 3 cloud places during your holiday in Styria, you will receive a heavenly cloud cup. With the knowledge that you've earned this cup hard, your next coffee is sure to taste even better!

Biking holidays in Hohentauern

It's best to get on your mountain bike early in the morning, because you will find exciting mountain bike trails in front of your holiday home! Quaint huts and beautiful excursion destinations in the Murtal can be easily reached by mountain bike at any time. The region around Hohentauern also has a lot to offer for mountain bike beginners and is very diverse!

The Triebenstein tour, the Hölleralm tour, the tour up to the Edelrautehütte or the route to the Bergerhube are particularly popular with our guests.

The Hohentauern Tourist Office has summarized more information about the route, the level of difficulty and the duration of these mountain bike tours in this folder.

You will receive the folder on arrival at your holiday home from our hosts on site, as well as the Murtal guest card and the best hiking tips for a sporty, active, real Styrian summer holiday with the family!

Element water

What could be nicer than throwing your fishing rod into crystal clear mountain water on a summer's day and catching a fish framed by the Hohentauern mountains - probably not much for passionate fishermen or holidaymakers who want to try this hobby!

In Hohentauern there are several fish ponds in which you can fish. Day tickets for the Weberteich (approx. 1.5 km from the chalet) or the Großer Scheiblsee, which can be reached within 2 km of your holiday home, can be purchased from the hosts in Hohentauern.

As the crowning glory of this day's holiday in the Murtal, the fish caught will be grilled on the terrace of your holiday home - it will definitely taste particularly good!
