Winter holidays in Upper Austria

Sep. 27, 2019
When winter in Upper Austria shakes its scepter, it's high season for skis, boards and snowshoes. Everyone uses the white splendor in their very own way, everyone has his own expectations of the cold season. And everyone gets their money's worth.

We will give you 3 reasons why you should spend your winter holiday in Upper Austria:

1. Wonderful slope conditions

The first ray of sunshine that wanders over a mountain ridge, the first momentum on a freshly groomed runway - these are moments that inspire and remain in your memory. Anyway, that's what the ski-goer looks like, and that's undoubtedly right. From the Hochficht in the north to Dachstein-West, Hinterstoder and Wurzeralm in the south - the seven top ski areas in Upper Austria score with varied slopes, first-class children's facilities and fair prices. More than 30 kilometers off piste variants and the 11 kilometers longest downhill in Upper Austria - not for nothing, the Freesports Arena Krippenstein was voted by the magazine SnowPlanet the hot spot of the freerider scene.

Hotel tip: Explorer Hotel Hinterstoder, Hinterstoder - directly at the valley station of the ski area Hinderstoder-Höss

2. Winter holidays off the slopes

Upper Austria's winter sports regions are also snowy in the Nordic countries. Wonderful cross-country skiing areas can be found, for example, in the Nordic Center of Šumava, where the forests are almost Scandinavian. Even on the numerous winter hiking trails or on snowshoes, the journey of discovery into the winter paradise of Upper Austria is a worthwhile undertaking. With the sled down to the valley - this is especially fun in the evening on a floodlit toboggan run.

Hotel tip: Alpenhotel Dachstein ***, Bad Goisern - family-run holiday hotel

3. Fantastic food

Out on the mountain, and then the well deserved stop. "Kasspatzn" and Ripperl, farmhouse donuts and Kaiserschmarrn give piste-throwers strength for the afternoon shift. The cuisine is regional and down to earth, at the same time internationally inspired and finely presented. A "must" on the menu is the dumpling, sometimes fluffy with fish fullness, sometimes spicy with a hint, sometimes sweet with apricot.

Hotel tip: Wellness Golf Family Ski Resort Dilly **** Superior, Windischgarsten - Including 5.000m² large wellness area
