The stepped-gable houses with their colorful facades, the narrow lanes and snowy mountaintops at dusk transport you to an enchanted world. In contrast to which you have the high-spirited skiers and snowboarders returning from the Grosseck-Speiereck ski area, at the foot of which Mauterndorf stands. Winter sports can indeed by so uncomplicated: a paradise for winter athletes who love quality pistes and who prefer nature to overcrowded slopes.

Lungau's designation as a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve has definitely contributed to the sustainable and nature-friendly use of the region: a development guests can clearly sense!
