Family hotspot: Annaberg ski area

The most varied family ski resort of the Mostviertel.

Annaberg is not only popular for being the family ski area of Eastern Alps par excellence, there is also sufficient space for keen skiers and snowboarders to enjoy wedeling down the hills.

Embedded between fairy tale forests, soft and challenging descents, Annaberg opens up marvellous views of the summit of Ötscher. The ski area is a real centre of attraction for families as more than fifty per cent of its guests are couples with kith and kin. But what makes Annaberg so popular among them? Maybe it is just because of the family-orientated holiday packages. Or it is because Annaberg’s hosts are willing hand out children’s ski passes directly in their hotels. And last but not least guests appreciate that children under the age of six years use ski lifts for free.

Broad network of ski runs

Nine modern lifts open up a ski area of about 20 runaway-kilometres: Ski dwarfs and novice skiers prefer the bunny slopes in the flat terrain around the Reidl lifts. Experienced skiers and tough snowboarders head for demanding runs that meet FIS standards.

Fairy tale world off-piste

Romantic lovers will experience unforgettable adventures during a horse-drawn sleigh ride through Annaberg’s winter wonderland. Cross-country skiers and snowshoe hikers are taken up and down the hills by their own physical strength. 18 kilometres of well-groomed cross-country skiing trails and signposted hiking trails show them the way.

Our tip for accommodation

Stay overnight in the new JUFA Annaberg Bergerlebnis Resort right beside the slope. The JUFA hotel is characterized by a family-friendly atmosphere and rustic-modern furniture.
