Obertauern – in the midst of the fantastic Salzburg mountain world, with approximately 100 kilometres of fantastic pistes, guaranteed snow from the end of November to the beginning of May and the best après-ski – was already so in 1965, when the Beatles came to Obertauern to shoot the music video for their hit song "Help".
Thanks to its ideal location – at an altitude of 1 740 to 2 526 metres above sea level – the ski season traditionally starts here at the end of November with a huge party. It doesn’t end until mid-May, when ski-hedonists will also enjoy themselves.
The most beautiful ski circuit since the first days of skiing: the lifts are so cleverly arranged here that it is possible to ski down all the slopes to the starting point. The red circle goes clockwise around the centre, the green circle counter-clockwise.
Four-star Superior Hotel Steiner
As is the case of most of the hotels in the area, the slopes can be directly accessed from family Hotel Steiner, because it is located right in the centre and at the same time right next to the piste. Nobody needs a car here. And the legendary nightlife takes place just a few steps from the Hotel.
"We are a family hotel, not a hotel for children. We focus equally on the needs of adults and children," says Andrea Steiner, who together with her husband manages the Hotel and this year completed its revolutionary refurbishment. In addition to bedrooms and suites, the Hotel offers special categories of family rooms: family apartments, rooms with connecting doors, junior suites and double rooms with separate beds for siblings.
Wellness with Added Value
After its opening in November this year, the best view from Steiner Hotel is from the roof, where the new Rooftop-BergSpa including an infinity pool is located. An ideal spot for a short break from family life, as it is only for adults 18+!
The BergSpa with the panoramic indoor pool, which has also been expanded, improved and beautified, is intended primarily for families. In the evening, the spa is reserved from 19:00 to 22:00 for adults only.
Non-stop Culinary Delights
Buffet breakfasts and lunches as well as 5-course dinners – guests can remain at the table all day long: whenever they choose. It doesn’t matter if one is hungry at noon, 2 pm or 4 pm –and without reservations, without fighting for a seat in a mountain chalet. From the tasty breakfast to dinner à la Steinerisch – day-long culinary experiences!
West Bohemian Mariánské Lázně is a pearl among spa towns. Chopin, Goethe and King Edward VII also boosted their health here. Discover the magic of the healing springs in the luxurious MARIA SPA resort.
Vienna – a lady embodying the charm of the Habsburg monarchy welcomes admirers to the city's beauties. Among those is the delicious sweet legacy – the Sachertorte. The creator of this unique cake was Franz Sacher, whose son built Hotel Sacher – a worthy temple for the sought-after delicacy. Franz Sacher would certainly be proud of his legacy today, because the kingdom of the Sacher family is being looked after by a very efficient and enterprising lady, Elisabeth Gürtler. She sensitively upholds the family legacy and the Sacher name, which has become a recognised brand of prestigious hotels. In addition to Vienna, a Sacher Hotel is also found in Salzburg and even as the attractive Sacher Alpine Resort in Seefeld.
