  • [Translate to Englisch:] Blick auf das Seehotel Das Traunsee im Winter
  • [Translate to Englisch:] Traunsee Richtung Ebensee im Winter

Snowflakes are falling from the sky, the otherwise lush green landscape is covered in a white snowy blanket and the region around the Traunsee is quiet in winter. It almost seems like an invitation to trudge through the snow and later warm up in the sauna with a view of the lake. Discover the delights of the Salzkammergut during this quiet season.

Considering the hustle and bustle in large ski resorts during the winter season, the tranquillity in Traunkirchen is certainly golden. No mass processing, overcrowded huts or ski resorts bursting at the seams. Rather a family-friendly ski area on the nearby Feuerkogel mountain, where both beginners and experienced skiers get their money's worth. Together with the Traunsee-Almtal holiday region, we offer a free shuttle to the Feuerkogel and Kasberg ski areas. Ask for information at our reception. 

For non-skiers there is the possibility to tramp through the winter landscape on snowshoes. Whether on skis or snowshoes: a stop at the charming „Kranabethhütte“ on the Feuerkogel is definitely recommended. Our guests have the option of renting snowshoes and ski touring equipment. In addition, guided tours and courses are offered. Please ask at our reception.

Alternatively, there are cross-country ski runs in Mitterndorf, just a few minutes from Traunkirchen and wonderful cross-country skiing opportunities at the Postalm. For those with a sense of adventure, the nearby „Hochsteinalm“ is a good place to go. The natural sleigh run is only a 10-minute drive from Traunkirchen. You walk up for about 45 minutes and then, after a culinary break at the alpine hut, you go down with the borrowed sleigh - the perfect excursion for all those in search of some action.
