Almliesl - Your holiday destination, a well-kept secret

Winter in the Alps can’t be beaten. Miles and miles of piste, high-tech ski-lifts and fun snow parks, local delicacies such as Kaiserschmarrn and Kasnocken, Glühwein and hot chestnuts. But you can also go down a gear; wonderful snow shoe and cross country ski tours through glistening forests and snow covered meadows, direct from the door. Romantic horse-drawn sleigh rides and ice skating on frozen mountain lakes. In an Almliesl region you will have trouble doing everything that is on offer. The Almliesl holiday experience stretches from Salzburgerland to South Tirol.

The Pinzgau region is in the south west of Salzburgerland, between the Hohe Tauern Mountain range in the south and the Steinernes Meer mountains in the North. The landscape here is shaped by three different types of mountains: the stony mountains, the grassy mountains, and the snowy mountains.
