The Austrian Alps are a playground for adults & children alike. Located in the Europa Sports region, the Landhaus Bergner Alm chalet offers the perfect base for anyone seeking an adventure. The abundance of activities in summer & winter leave no-one at a loss of what past-time to pursue. Whether that's hiking above 3,000m to the "Top of Salzburg" on the Kitzsteinhorn; gliding down 408km of groomed ski slopes and through alpine forests, or paddling in the crystal blue waters of Lake Zell, there's something that will surely make every soul sing.
With 408 km of ski pistes on the chalet's doorstep, whether you're a beginner or a seasoned snow-sport enthusiast, you will be sure to find something for you. With easy access to the Kitzsteinhorn of Kaprun, Zell am See's Schmittenhöhe, and Salbaach Hinterglemm's ski-circus, you'll likely need more than one trip!
Love the challenge of a ski tour climb to then be rewarded with an exhilarating decent on untracked terrain? We know the feeling, & are just spoilt for choice here. Whether you love the remoteness of back-country touring, or prefer the more groomed areas, you'll be sure to find a ski-tour for you.
Winter holidays don't just mean skiing & snowboarding, why not try a bit of sledging too! Across from our chalet there is a 3km run totally reserved for sledging. Get picked up in a tractor & driven to the Kohlschnait Alm, where you'll be given your sledge as well as a complimentary schnapps drink. Prost!
