Smells like fresh snow


TO SKi or Not to Ski?

That's not a question for us, because apart from classic alpine skiing, there are a number of other winter activities on and off the slopes that you absolutely have to experience. 

Whether cross-country skiing, ski touring alias slopes, on 2 runners down the mountain or across the ice rink or stomping snow with a view, winter here in the Alps has so much more to offer than you think.

#1 Tip: 107 km of cross-country skiing day and night almost directly from the chalet door

#2 Tip:  our favorite ski tour to the Glocknerblick with a culinary reward

#3 Tip: Toboggan enthusiasts can let off steam on the longest floodlit natural toboggan run in the world. 14 km of pure tobogganing fun await you in Bramberg am Wildkogel

Tauern Spa Best Friends

We're best friends with the Tauern Spa Zell am See Kaprun. But what exactly does that mean for you? During your stay with us in the Dorfchalets Kaprun you can enjoy the Tauern Spa for free & as often as you want. Swim lengths in the warm water, sweat in the sauna & simply do nothing after a long day on the slopes.
