Winter hiking in the deep snow covered winter landscape

Winter hiking in the Lungau holiday region

Deep snow covered winter landscape at 1.100 m elevation

The majority of the winter hiking trails pass along quiet side roads of tracks used for agriculture or forestry and offer wonderful views of the surrounding mountain landscape of the Lungau.
A very popular winter walking path leads from the historic market square, past the imposant Mauterndorf Castle, along a traffice-free, excellently groomed path, which is also lit at night, to the Mauterndorf ski centre. After walking for about 25 minutes, you will have reached your destination and, after fortifying yourself in the Schi Alm restaurant, can start the walk back.

Or enjoy the wonderful winter panorama on a mountain ascent with the gondola and watch the colourful action on the ski slopes.

  • A folding map  "Active in winter", which lists and shows all the cross country trails, winter hiking trails, Nordic walking paths and natural tobogganing runs, can be obtained from Mauterndorf Tourist Information Office!

Cross country holiday

in the Salzburger mountain region

You can even practice Nordic sports, such as cross-country skiing and skating, in the Lungau holiday region. Cross-country skiers have a choice between excellent cross-country trails in the valley – the sunny levels between Mauterndorf and Mariapfarr deserve a special mention – or the high trails in Obertauern.

A large number of cross-country trails are found around Mauterndorf in particular. The airfield cross-country trail with its 2.6 km of classic tracks and skating tracks is perfect for beginners and those pleasure skiers who want to enjoy the sun. The Taurach cross-country trail from Mauterndorf to Mariapfarr and back covering a distance of 6.5 km, definitely requires more endurance and, depending on your stamina, there are different access points in Mariapfarr.

  • A summary of the groomed cross-country trails or cross-country skiing trails and their conditions can be found at the Lungau holiday region website.
