Obertauern boasts some of the best, most reliable snow conditions anywhere in the Alps, offering the perfect backdrop to a single parent ski holiday at Easter. Our elegant accommodation, the 4-star Hotel Steiner, can be found at an altitude of 1,752 m. The hotel is located in the centre of town and directly on the slopes, offering our single parents a fantastic ski in/ski out experience in addition to all the facilities they and the kids could possibly wish for.
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 the panoramic views of the Tauern mountains. Parents can use the spa’s family zone with their children, or enjoy a little pampering with a massage or beauty treatment while their kids are having fun. A child minder and 60 m² playroom complete with trains, Lego, slides, table football and more will keep younger guests entertained, while a teen lounge with game consoles, table football and billiard table offers a unique chillout zone for teenagers.
In the evenings, after a 5-course gourmet dinner, our single parents can enjoy a glass of wine at the hotel bar or in front of the fireplace, or head into town and experience Obertauern’s famously wide range of après-ski bars.
Skiing/snowboarding: With slopes ranging from altitudes of between 1,630 and 2,313 m, Obertauern guarantees the best snow conditions until May. The region is popular with both skiers and snowboarders alike: Its 26 lifts provide access to over 100 kilometres of blue, red and black runs, as well as a snow park. For thrill-seekers, the piste alongside the Gamsleiten 2 lift is the second steepest run in Austria. The fast and efficient lift system, wide prepared pistes and amazing deep-snow skiing all add to Obertauern’s appeal. The lifts are so cleverly laid out in a circle around the village, in fact, that you can ski the so-called ‘Tauern circuit’ and never be more than a few minutes from your hotel.
Other activities on offer: Obertauern also offers some 28 kilometres of cross-country ski trails, including one used for the World Cup, and countless hiking trails, letting you enjoy the beautiful winter landscape. If you fancy trying something new, why not join a snowshoe hike with a tour guide, or try snowbiking, an exciting yet safe new adventure! It’s easy for anyone to learn, and really cool. Just a few miles away, the alpine hut Gnadenalm offers horse drawn carriage rides, ice skating. curling and many more fun winter activities.
Be sure to save some energy for our toboggan evening and the twice-weekly floodlit night skiing – both fun and memorable experiences for kids and parents alike!
Obertauern is a popular ski region in the far southeast of the region of Salzburg, in the Radstädter Tauern mountains. It ranges between heights of 1,630 and 2,526 m above sea level. Obertauern is actually part 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, 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 the 1st centuries B.C.), and the Romans, who used the Tauern Pass to reach Salzburg. The Radstädter Tauern were first mentioned in 1207. The first skiers were recorded here in 1902, and the first lifts built in the ‘50s and ‘60s.
Nowadays Obertauern is a popular ski resort with lively, unobtrusive après-ski. Obertauern has actually been known for its nightlife ever since the Beatles made part of their film ‘Help’ here in 1965. Two legendary alpine huts are the Edelweißalm at 1,850 m with breathtaking views of the surrounding mountain world and the Lürzer Alm in the centre of town with its rustic charm and famous après-ski parties.
