When the snowflakes fall from the sky and Traunkirchen turns white, then you know that it's finally winter. The ideal time to enjoy the tranquility of the Traunsee and to trudge through the snow with snowshoes. But even at this time of the year the Salzkammergut has something ready for all those who are looking for action and adventure ...
The white winter landscapes invite you to spend a day in nature. Everyone gets their money's worth. Ski enthusiasts can spend a day on the nearby Feuerkogel. A ski area free from mass tourism and the hustle and bustle, suitable for all levels of difficulty and thus the perfect destination for the whole family. If you are looking for a bit of variety: ski areas such as Hinterstoder and Gosau are also only an hour's drive from Traunkirchen. Alternatively, there are also wonderful cross-country trails in the area, more precisely on the Postalm and in Mitterndorf.
Winter is not just something you can really enjoy on skis. In our hotel reception you can borrow snowshoes and trudge through the landscape. How about, for example, a hike to the Feuerkogel and then a hot soup at the Kranabethhütte? Our guests have the option of renting snowshoes and ski touring equipment at the Feuerkogel. In addition, guided tours and courses are offered. Please ask at our reception.
An experience for the whole family that we can warmly recommend is tobogganing on the Hochsteinalm. You walk upwards for around 45 minutes and then, after a little refreshment at the charming charming Alpin hut, toboggan down with a borrowed sledge. And best of all: the natural toboggan run is only 10 minutes by car from Traunkirchen.
