Obertauern, in the southeast of the region of Salzburg, is a popular summer destination for anyone who loves the outdoor life. You’ll be blown away by the unspoilt beauty of the entire region – the majestic Tauern mountain range, crystal-clear rivers and mountain springs, endless meadows and fields dotted with unhurried cows and horses. And thanks to the altitude, there are no allergies or mosquitoes to battle with!

Our superior 4-star Hotel Steiner, family-run and located at the centre of Obertauern, is simply paradise for children of all ages. Thereʼs a large playground at the hotel to keep the little ones entertained, a chillout lounge for older children equipped with game consoles, table football, air hockey, a climbing wall and a large indoor pool to be enjoyed by all ages.

The kitchen is open all day, and offers an amazing all-inclusive culinary experience for all guests. An impressive spa with indoor pool, whirlpool, steam bath, saunas, quartz grotto, tepidarium and water beds offers every imaginable opportunity for guests to relax and take in panoramic views of the Tauern mountain range. Parents can either use the spa’s family zone with their children or enjoy a little pampering with a massage or beauty treatment while the kids are having fun, well looked after: a child minder and 60 m² playroom complete with trains, Lego, slides, table football and more will keep younger guests entertained (from the age of 3), allowing our parents to unwind over a glass of wine on the hotel’s sun terrace after an active day in the mountains.

Obertauern is a popular summer destination for lovers of the Alps and the outdoor life, located in the far southeast of the region of Salzburg, in the Radstädter Tauern mountains, with altitudes ranging from 1,630 to 2,526 m above sea level. Obertauern is made up of two districts, St. Johann/Pongau and Tamsweg. Consequently, the community is separated into two municipalities, Untertauern (Pongau) and Tweng (Lungau). The municipal boundary runs first at the altitude of the Radstädter Tauern pass and then through the centre of the village. The village itself is located high on the sunny side of the mountain, at 1,741 m.

Obertauern’s history dates back to the Celts (who inhabited the area from the 4th to 1st centuries B.C.), and the Romans, who used the Tauern Pass to reach Salzburg. The Radstädter Tauern were first mentioned in 1207.

Obertauern is a very popular holiday destination nowadays, especially with outdoor lovers and skiers, offering breathtaking scenery, some of the most beautiful mountain hikes in Europe and a range of fun Alpine activities to keep all ages entertained.

"Ramsau, Austria is not just for winter! It's a great place in summer and a beautiful place to explore the natural beauty and scope of its surroundings. The age range and size of the group does not matter, as most if not all of the activities suit families of all ages. We did lots of firsts on this holiday and created many happy memories."
- Chris, Mia (15) & Jacques (14) (Ramsau holiday, July 2016)

"We had a great time, nice vacation if you like outdoor activities. I think great vacation for kids over 10-12 years, not for small children."
- Ludovico & Margherita (10) (Ramsau holiday, July 2016)

"We had an excellent holiday, Daniella was a fabulous guide and offered great activities which we could all enjoy irrespective of age. The hotel was lovely, swimming lake, sauna & steam room all appreciated after busy days."
- Catherine, Fiona (16) & Donald (15) (Ramsau holiday, July 2015)

"Another great SPoH holiday with great people! Daniella worked exceptionally hard to organize everything for us and flexibly worked around wet weather constraints too. The Dachstein area is very pretty with wonderful scenery. The family run Hotel a peaceful place to stay with good food which was enjoyable after building up appetites following our walks and various outings. A good head for heights needed for some activities! Would highly recommend this holiday for teens. My son loved the rafting, paragliding and the glacier visit. We had a fantastic time and have returned home refreshed and ready to think about our next trip away with SPoH!"
- Sarah & Oliver (13) (Ramsau holiday, July 2015)

"We had a great holiday in Ramsau. There were lots of fun activities to do together – rafting, tandem flying, walking etc. We had some rain while we were there and Daniella, our group leader, juggled everything very efficiently so that we hardly noticed. Being in a group and having a helpful leader enabled us to do things that we wouldn’t have been able to do if I had taken the children on holiday on my own."
- Catherine, Rufus (10), Edmund (8) & Jasper (5) (Ramsau holiday, July 2015)
