Winter Holidays in Styria
Fun-Filled Activities in the Snow or Getting Cosy in the Farmhouse
Are you looking for a family-friendly ski resort or do you prefer the large “4 Mountain Ski Area” in Schladming? Whatever ski resort you’re looking for, you’ll find it in Styria. But there are also plenty of activities off the pistes. There’s hardly any place as cosy as the living room in a farmhouse. In winter, it’s especially nice to snuggle up in front of the tiled stove. It’s so warm and cosy here! Take a break and enjoy life to the fullest during your winter holiday on one of the family farms in Styria.
Small and Family-Friendly or...
...Large and Vibrant
Styria’s family-friendly ski resorts are ideal for kids who would like to make their first turns on skis. However, these resorts are great for beginners of all ages. And of course for those who prefer a more relaxed atmosphere. No matter if you’re a beginner, an experienced skier, a person seeking tranquility or culinary delights - you’ll feel welcome here.
Are you looking for small, lovely ski resorts for beginners and advanced learners? We recommend the regions Hochsteiermark, Eastern Styria, the mountain range Koralm in Western Styria and the Murau-Murtal region. More advanced skiers will feel as happy as a clam at high tide in the vibrant ski resorts “Schladming-Dachstein”, “Semmering”, “Turracherhöhe” and “Kreischberg”.
A relaxed atmosphere does not only await you on the slopes but also on the family farms in Styria. You can stay in a holiday apartment, a mountain cabin or a holiday home. What they all have in common: you’ll find rest and relaxation.
Set in idyllic locations, the farms have one crucial advantage: you are in the middle of the beautiful countryside with plenty of space surrounding the farm. What are you waiting for? Enjoy a carefree holiday off the beaten track!
Calling All Cross-Country Skiers
These Destinations Will Make Your Heart Sing
Styria is a paradise for cross-country skiers. Cross-country skiing is extremely healthy, that’s an undisputed fact. At the same time, moving smoothly and gracefully across a winter landscape is a fantastic immersion in nature. In Ramsau am Dachstein, cross-country skiers will find 220 km of tracks accessible to a broad range of abilities. The Dachstein glacier boasts the world’s longest cross-country ski trail on a glacier.
An especially reliable snow cover is characteristic for the destination “Eisenerzer Ramsau”. That’s one of the reasons why the area is home to a training centre for Nordic skiing which is also used by professionals.
Well-groomed cross-country ski trails can also be found in St. Jakob im Walde, high up on Tauplitzalm, on the valley floors of the Ausseerland region (the Styrian part of the Salzkammergut region) and around the town of Murau (170 km of tracks).
Destinations that are subject to quality controls and meet certain criteria are awarded a seal of quality called “Steirisches Loipengütesiegel”. These places are a selection of the best destinations for cross-country skiers.
Snowy Fun Off the Pistes
There’s also a way to enjoy winter far off the ski resorts and pistes. And it’s at least as much fun. Walking through a forest covered in deep snow, whizzing down the hill on a sledge or gliding over the icy surface - these outdoor activities will make every nature lover’s heart sing.
In Styria, you can engage in many peaceful activities in the snow. The fit and outdoorsy can embark on a backcountry adventure in Styria’s mountains. Ski touring and snowshoeing are great ways to explore the magical snowy countryside.
Styria’s regions are home to a vast network of trails that take you through the winter wonderland. Look forward to an unforgettable winter experience!
Tobogganing and sledging is great fun too. In a lot of villages, you can speed down the hill on a special toboggan run. After the fun-filled descent, you need to pull your toboggan uphill or, in some cases, there’s even a lift or a shuttle service.
By the way: building snowmen or starting an epic snowball fight (the more, the better) is possible at any time, in any place!
