The Lungau is an alpine region based at 1040m above sea level, surrounded by meadows and mountains up to just 3000m altitude. The southern location of the high alps gives it a mild and sunny summer climate compared to its altitude. The winters are frozen and sunny with 100% snow certain skiing due to its unique location. The Lungau is one of Austrian best kept secrets.
In the SPRING you can enjoy the beauty of the alpine flowers exploring the meadows. There is a high number of different valleys and meadows to hike onto, cycle or discover them by car. The Lungau is famous for its heritage both natural and cultural. The Italians made beautiful fresco’s on houses during their journeys to sell wine in exchange for salt in Salzburg.

The heated outdoor swimming pool just at 2 minutes walk from your residence is a treat to the family. The touristical destinations are legion and to much to mention all.
