The scenery on the Turracher Höhe encourages you to enjoy an active holiday and the mountain climate is invigorating. Hiking trails and mountain bike and e-bike routes lead from the hotel to mythical mountain likes, through larch and pine forests, up to the friendly Nockberge, to rustic alpine huts. In winter, skiers glide across the slopes while cross-country skiers and winter hikers enjoy the tranquillity.
Plan your holidays
Put on your mountain boots and let’s go! A nice hike to the three mountain lakes or the hotel’s Vastlhütte on the Sam. Up to the Schoberriegel, the Kornock or the Rinsennock. Guided hikes take place around the year. The terrain is also great for running and Nordic walking while on an active holiday.
Through nature with the bike
Through forests and up to the mountains by mountain bike or e-bike. Choose from several routes surrounded by the gorgeous scenery of the Nockberge biosphere park. Guided e-bike tours with introductions to the riding technique are a regular part of the hotel programme.
Swimming in the Thurracher lake
Those who like to swim will love the heated Hochschober lake pool. Swim in pure lake water and in the fresh air all year. You can also swim in the indoor pool. Or, in midsummer, in the refreshingly cool Turracher See.
Yoga and fitness
Yoga will reinvigorate you. Yoga sessions are an almost daily part of the hotel programme as are gymnastics and fitness training. The Yoga on the Mountain weeks in June/July and in November/December present various yoga styles. Or how about a golf holiday? 13 golf courses are within a maximum 90-minute drive. All against the backdrop of beautiful Carinthian and Styrian scenery.
Skiing in the ski region on the Thurracher Höhe
In winter, you can go directly from the hotel to the lift, the runs and winter hiking trails. Skiers ski directly to the hotel door. The ski region on the Turracher Höhe (1,400 to 2,205 m) is among the most snow-reliable in all of Austria.
