The taste of holidays at the Alps Residence

No desire to do your own cooking during your vacation? At Restaurant Mitterwirt – popular with locals and guests alike - Sonja Voithofer and her team plate wiener schnitzels, cheesy kasnockn noodles as well as international classics. A tradition of hospitality that actually goes back to the year 1358, since when the Mitterwirt has served as a post station and a popular inn. Our tip: If you are in the mood for something delicious and hearty, you should definitely try the Pinzgauer Bladln, spareribs or pork knuckle (only by advance order)!

Restaurant Mitterwirt is open for you from Wednesday through Monday between 10 AM and midnight (kitchen remains open until 9:30 PM, closed for employee holidays in May and November). Dishes such as pizzas are also available “to go” for you to enjoy back in your apartment. T: +43 660 569 7777

Do you love to enjoy breakfast while you are still in your pajamas? In that case, take advantage of the breakfast-roll delivery service provided by our local Schandlbauer bakery: You can order your oven-fresh bread daily – be that kornspitz, dinkelweckerl or classic croissants – on WhatsApp, delivered right to your apartment door. Simply take care of payment at the reception desk when you are ready to check out.  

Every first Thursday of the month during the summer months, the Piesendorf Village Market is held directly across from Tauern Suites Mitterwirt. At this popular farmers’ market, local businesses offer a delectable selection of their own homemade products. Our tip: A farmhouse bread with cream cheese, accompanied by a full-flavored cheese and bacon as an outstanding option for a relaxed dinner enjoyed in your holiday apartment. Or simply take a piece of Austria with you to enjoy back in your own home…

The Hohe Tauern
National Park Holiday Region

The Hohe Tauern National Park Holiday Region in Salzburger Land encompasses 19 towns and villages, extending from Krimml with its famous waterfalls, to Mittersill, Uttendorf and Piesendorf, to Raurisertal and all the way into neighboring Grossarltal. Spanning some 1856 km², Hohe Tauern National Park is the biggest nature sanctuary in the Alps. The landscape is characterized by mighty 3,000ers – including such greats as the Grossglockner and Grossvenediger – lush green alpine meadows, dark forests, waterfalls and mountain streams. But in addition to intact nature, during mountain holidays in Austria visitors also enjoy a perfect tourism infrastructure: TOP ski areas for your ski holiday in winter, marked hiking paths and alpine trails in summer, along with some of Austria’s most famous excursion destinations such as the Grossglockner High-Alpine Road.


Winter in the Hohe Tauern National Park Holiday Region

Ski Holidays in Salzburger Land

The top winter sports in the Hohe Tauern National Park Holiday Region are skiing and snowboarding. During your winter holiday, you can choose between 9 TOP ski areas. The Kitzsteinhorn and Schmittenhöhe ski areas are just a few minutes on the free ski bus or by car from your apartment at Tauern Suites Mitterwirt in Piesendorf. The Ski Alpin Card, which is available at the reception, includes the ski resorts of the Kitzsteinhorn, Schmittenhöhe and Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn.

Carpe Solem Rauris lies right next to the valley station of the Rauriser Hochalmbahnen Family Ski Area with 32 kilometers of beautifully groomed pistes, a children’s practice area right outside the front door, along with a ski school and rental center at the resort.

Other ski resorts in the region include Weisssee Gletscherwelt family ski area in Uttendorf as well as Wildkogel Arena in Bramberg Neukirchen.

Snowshoeing, ski touring and winter hiking

Away from the pistes, too, you have ample opportunities to experience the most beautiful side of winter: Whether gliding along the tracked cross-country trails of the Bodenhaus-Loipe in Rauris or between Piesendorf and Zell am See-Kaprun, trudging along the marked winter hiking paths or with snowshoes on your feet through the fresh snow, taking a romantic sleigh ride or enjoying a high-spirited sledding expedition with your family amid the nature of the National Park – the range of winter sports is enormous. Our reception team will be happy to help you plan each day of your winter holiday. And you can count on them having a few insider tips of their own to share with you!  
More and more winter sports fans are looking for peace & quiet and genuine nature experiences away from the popular pistes – which is precisely what you will find during a ski tour. Our region gives beginners a chance to enjoy a first taste of this increasingly popular sport on select ski-touring routes. One example is Ski Touring Center Raurisertal, where one route even begins right next to Carpe Solem Rauris.  For your mountain experiences away from the pistes, we strongly recommend the services of a mountain guide (the reception will be happy to provide you with contact details).
For experienced ski tourers, Raurisertal with its Kolm Saigurn valley head is virtually a must: In this “Golden Valley of the Alps”, the options range from a laid-back tour up the Kolmkarspitz to sweat-inducing climbs to the summits of the Hoher Sonnblick (3106 m) or Hocharn (3254 m). Tours are generally possible until May / June.

Something truly special: National Park Excursions

We have one more tip for your winter holiday with us: From December until the end of March, a National Park Ranger will lead you on snowshoes to wonderful places such as the Rauris Virgin Forest or allow you to participate in wildlife feedings in Habachtal. These tours are free to our guests. Take a look at the current Ranger Program!

And now just imagine: After such a day spent in the fresh mountain air and the snow, returning to your “holiday home”, stretching out on the sofa of your apartment and getting ready for a “round” of Netflix. Or indulging yourself at the wellness area with infinity pool at Carpe Solem Rauris or in the organic sauna at Tauern Suites Mitterwirt…



unsere Ausflugsziele Tipps

Meine Lieblingsplätze

Verena Junger

Was mir an der Ferienregion Nationalpark Hohe Tauern besonders gefällt? Dass sich neben Top Ausflugszielen im Salzburger Land auch immer Raum zum Durchatmen und Entschleunigen finden lässt. Zum Beispiel bei einer Brettljause auf der Alm. Beim Sonnengruß am einsamen Gipfel. Oder wenn man sich die Füße an einem Bachlauf erfrischt. Für mich eine gelungene Kombi aus Natur und (touristischer) Infrastruktur. Seit 2018 - und der Eröffnung der Tauernsuites Mitterwirt - bin ich Teil des Alps Residence Teams und freue mich riesig, wenn meine Heimat unsere Gäste genauso begeistert wie mich. Viel Spaß auf Ihrer Entdeckungsreise durch den Nationalpark!

Ibex near Großglockner High Alpine Road

Großglockner Hochalpenstraße

Die 48 Kilometer lange Panoramastraße gehört zu Österreichs beliebtesten Ausflugszielen. Und das zurecht: Von der Mautstation in Ferleiten schlängelt sich die 1935 eröffnete Hochgebirgsstraße (umringt von beeindruckenden Bergen) in 36 Kehren bis zum Wallfahrtsort Heiligenblut in Kärnten bzw. hinauf zur Kaiser Franz Josefs Höhe. Dort scheinen Österreichs höchster Berg, der Großglockner (3.798 m), der Johannisberg und die Pasterze zum Greifen nah. Planen Sie auf jeden Fall den ganzen Tag für die Tour ein: Entlang der Großglockner Hochalpenstraße bieten sich zahlreiche Fotopoints und kleine Spaziergänge zum Füße-Vertreten an, an den elf Infopoints erfahren Sie Wissenswertes über den Bau der Panoramastraße sowie Flora und Fauna des Nationalparks Hohe Tauern. Und halten Sie immer die Augen offen - es kann schon mal passieren, dass vor Ihnen ein Murmeltier die Straße kreuzt oder sich ein Steinbock am Hang sonnt!

Rauris Primeval Forest - Nationalpark Hohe Tauern

Kolm Saigurn

Zu einem der schönsten Talschlüsse im Nationalpark Hohe Tauern zählt Kolm Saigurn im Raurisertal. Im Sommer lockt er Wanderer und Bergsteiger an. Die beliebtesten Ziele sind – auch geeignet für Familien - der Rauriser Urwald, die Durchgangalmen sowie der Wasserfallweg und für Bergfexe Hocharn (3.254 m) und Hoher Sonnblick (3.106 m) mit Europas höchster, dauerhaft besetzter Wetterstation „on top“. Die meisten Bergtouren starten am Parkplatz Lenzanger, der über eine 5 km lange Mautstraße erreichbar ist (Nationalpark Sommercard Leistungspartner, ein Bus fährt bis zum Talschluss). Unweit der Mautstation können Sie sich übrigens als Schatzsucher versuchen und am Goldwaschplatz Bodenhaus mit etwas Glück feine Goldflitter aus dem Gebirgsbach waschen. Im Rauriser Talschluss bieten bewirtschaftete Almen, Ammererhof und Naturfreundehaus (Tipp: der Kinderspielplatz und die Kneippanlage) Möglichkeit zur Rast mit traumhaftem Ausblick: In Kolm Saigurn reihen sich Dreitausender und Gletscher aneinander, während auf den saftigen Almweiden Kühe und Pferde grasen und die Wasserfälle rauschen.

bird of prey show in Rauris

Tal der Geier

Im Raurisertal ziehen seltene Bartgeier seit 1986 ihre Kreise im Krumltal. Mit etwas Glück sind sie neben Steinadlern, Gänsegeiern, Murmeltieren und Steinwild dort in freier Wildbahn zu beobachten. Wer auf Nummer sicher gehen möchte, schließt sich der Nationalpark Exkursion mit einem Nationalpark Ranger an (Juli bis September, kostenlos mit der Nationalpark Sommercard). Das Krumltal ist ein Seitental des Raurisertals, die einfache Wanderung zur bewirtschafteten Bräualm über den beschilderten Themenlehrpfad dauert ca. 1.5 Stunden (Forststraße). Ein Geheimtipp ist der Besuch im Lechnerhäusl, dem kleinen Alpengasthof am Anfang des Tals unweit des Parkplatzes (und die traumhaft leckeren (Süß-) Speisen dort). Wer noch mehr über die Greifvögel im Nationalpark Hohe Tauern erfahren möchte, stattet der Nationalparkausstellung „Könige der Lüfte“ in Rauris (Ortsteil Wörth) einen Besuch ab oder lässt sich von Peter auf der Rauriser Hochalm bei der Greifvogelschau Lebensgewohnheiten und Besonderheiten der Tiere erklären.

Krimml Waterfalls at Hohe Tauern National Park

Krimmler Wasserfälle

Ein beeindruckendes Ausflugsziel für die ganze Familie sind die Krimmler Wasserfälle (Leistungspartner der Nationalpark Sommercard): Auf dem vier Kilometer langen Wasserfallweg und seinen Panoramakanzeln kommt man den tosenden Wassermassen von Österreichs größten Wasserfällen ganz nah – und kann dabei schon mal nass werden! 380 Meter Fallhöhe machen die Krimmler Wasserfälle zu einem sehenswerten Naturerlebnis und zu den fünfthöchsten Wasserfällen der Welt. Der erste Wasserfall ist in ca. fünf Gehminuten vom Kassenhäuschen aus zu erreichen (behindertengerecht), danach wird der Wasserfallweg steiler und führt durch den kühlen Wald. Mein Tipp: Nutzen Sie die Pinzgauer Lokalbahn für Ihre Anreise nach Krimml ab Zell am See oder Piesendorf – die Fahrt ist kostenlos mit der inkludierten Nationalpark Sommercard.

children discovering nature at Hohe Tauern National Park


Eine 1.800 m² große Erlebniswelt für Groß und Klein in Mittersill, die Ihnen den Nationalpark Hohe Tauern, seine Bewohner und Besonderheiten (spielerisch) näherbringt. Ein Highlight der Ausstellung ist die 360° Panoramawelt. Im Nationalpark Hohe Tauern, dem größten Nationalpark Österreichs, finden Sie zahlreiche Themenlehrwege (u.a. den Rauriser Urwald, „Könige der Lüfte“ in Rauris, Smaragdweg in Hollersbach oder die Gletscherlehrwege in Uttendorf) und Ausstellungen (u.a. die Nationalpark Gallery in der Gipfelwelt 3000 am Kitzsteinhorn). Von Juli bis Mitte September haben Sie außerdem die Möglichkeit, an einer der beliebten Nationalpark Exkursionen teilzunehmen und mit einem ausgebildeten Nationalpark Ranger echte Naturjuwele zu erkunden. Diese geführten – und wirklich empfehlenswerten! – Touren sind (genau wie das Nationalparkmuseum) kostenlos mit der Nationalpark Sommercard. Mittersill ist auch mit der Pinzgauer Lokalbahn – kostenlos mit der Nationalpark Sommercard – zu erreichen, im Bahnhofskiosk „Kiosk + Lounge“ gibt es mitunter den besten Kaffee der kleinen Einkaufsstadt und täglich selbstgemachte Kuchen.

Weißsee glacial lake in Uttendorf

Weisssee Gletscherwelt

Mit der Gondel (Leistungspartner Nationalpark Sommercard) geht es in rund 20 Minuten von der Talstation am Enzingerboden bis auf 2.315 m zum Berghotel Rudolfshütte. Erstmal angekommen, heißt es: Aussicht genießen, Sie sind nämlich ohne große Anstrengung in hochalpinen Lagen gelandet. Vor Ihnen liegt der türkisblaue Weißsee, umringt von mächtigen Dreitausendern. Eine beliebte Bergtour führt zum Kalser Törl (2.525 m) und weiter auf den Medelzkopf (2.760 m), vorbei an unzähligen Steinmandln, die ein tolles Fotomotiv abgeben. Ein echtes Erlebnis bieten die Klettersteige im Weißsee-Gebiet: der Kronprinz Rudolf Klettersteig ist ideal für Einsteiger, während der Kristallklettersteig auch Fortgeschrittenen so einiges abverlangt. Im Winter ist die Rudolfshütte beliebter Ausgangspunkt für lohnende Skitouren auf den Stubacher Sonnblick, die Granatspitze oder den Hocheiser. Nicht zu vergessen: Das kleine, aber feine Skigebiet in Uttendorf im Salzburger Land ist auch ideal für Familien.

High Alpine Reservoir in Kaprun


Dass die Kapruner Hochgebirgsstauseen in Kaprun so beeindruckend sind, hat wohl mehrere Gründe: die Lage der türkisblauen Stauseen inmitten von Dreitausendern, die bewegende Geschichte des Bauwerks und die technische Meisterleistung, die hier vollbracht wurde (Staumauerführungen möglich). Schon allein die Fahrt hoch zu den Stauseen ist ein Erlebnis: Am Kapruner Kesselfall steigen Sie in den Bus, der Sie (mitunter durch wirklich dunkle Tunnel) bis zu Europas größtem offenen Schrägaufzug bringt. Nach einer Fahrt mit Lärchenwandschrägaufzug geht es weiter mit dem Bus, vorbei am ersten Stausee und der beliebten Fürthermoaralm, bis auf 2.040 m zum faszinierenden Moserboden Stausee, der an einen norwegischen Fjord erinnert. Wer das Gebiet für eine kleine Wanderung nutzen möchte, dem empfehle ich den Kräuterlehrpfad, der vom Moserboden Stausee in ca. 45 Minuten hinunter zur Fürthermoaralm und zu köstlichen Schwarzbeernocken mit Zimtzucker führt. Das beliebte Ausflugsziel im Salzburger Land hat von Mai bis Oktober geöffnet.


Your summer holiday
in Salzburger Land

Holidays amid intact nature

Mountains, glaciers, lakes and waterfalls. Mighty 3000ers and snow-covered summits such as the Kitzsteinhorn, Grossglockner and Grossvenediger, gentle green alpine pastures, the Pinzgauer Grasberge and the Hohe Tauern. Between them, one rushing mountain stream after another. Every bit as diverse as the nature of Hohe Tauern National Park which surrounds the Alps Residence apartment resorts Tauern Suites Mitterwirt Piesendorf, Tauernlodges Uttendorf and Carpe Solem Rauris, are the opportunities for your excursions and new experiences during your Austrian summer holidays.

Hiking and mountaineering

You (and even your kids) won’t waste a second before your hiking boots are laced up and your rucksack is packed: Countless marked hiking paths and alpine trails – 295 km of them in Raurisertal alone! – as well as self-guided themed paths lead you out to mountain huts where you are greeted by a full selection of well-earned snacks including crispy-fresh farmhouse bread and bacon. Through cool forests where you will be able to take one refreshing breath after another, high meadows where the cows and horses happily nibble away on fine alpine herbs. Past impressive waterfalls. Always with time for a break next to a mountain spring or babbling stream – your tired legs will thank you for it, appreciative of the refreshment you give them!

With a little bit of luck, you will encounter marmots, ibex and golden eagles circling overhead. And perhaps even catch sight of rare bearded vultures, which were reintroduced into Rauriser Krumltal back in 1986. Panning for gold in the “Golden Valley of the Alps” or scouring the “Valley of Emeralds”, Habachtal, you might even strike it rich. And as you know: When there’s something to discover, hikes are twice as exciting for the kids!

National Park excursions in summer

Two of the most popular National Park excursions lead you into Habachtal and the “Valley of Vultures”. A National Park Ranger will accompany you to some of the region’s most impressive natural jewels, explaining the flora and fauna, the history and unique highlights of Hohe Tauern National Park, which happens to be the biggest nature sanctuary in Austria. Set out on a “Journey to the Antarctic” inside the Weisssee glacial zone, or hearken to the call of the “Rauris Virgin Forest” … So much is waiting to be discovered!

These excursions are free to our guests. For further details, we invite you to take a look at the Hohe Tauern National Park Summer Program!

National Park Sommercard

With the National Park Sommercard, you can select one free service daily inside the Hohe Tauern National Park Holiday Region, which includes TOP Salzburger Land excursion destinations such as Grossglockner High-Alpine Road, Krimml Waterfalls, the National Park Museum, summer lifts, swimming pools as well as the Hinkelsteinbad in Piesendorf and the Sonnblickbad in Raurisertal, panning for gold and much more. Public transportation between Krimml, Piesendorf, Zell am See and Raurisertal is likewise free of charge!

And best of all: During your summer holidays spent at Tauern Suites Mitterwirt, Tauernlodges Uttendorf and Carpe Solem Rauris, the National Park Sommercard is automatically included in the price! Valid from 1.5. through 31.10., for the duration of your stay – as soon as you move into your apartment at our holiday resort.

Overview of all Card Partners

Summer Lifts

With practically no physical exertion whatsoever, our popular summer lifts in the region will carry you up the mountain, where you are greeted by wonderful scenery and unforgettable mountain experiences. In summertime, the lifts offer you – families, in particular – exciting excursion destinations and countless memorable moments: the Rauriser Hochalmbahnen with a gold-panning site and bird-of-prey station, the Wildkogel Arena with its Slide Path (10 different slides ranging in length from 22 to 53 m!), the Schmittenhöhe including “Schmidolin’s Baptism of Fire”, “Ghost Mountain” in St. Johann Alpendorf, and Kitzsteinhorn Glacier with the ICE ARENA and Gipfelwelt 3000, boasting Salzburg’s highest viewing platform, aptly named the “Top of Salzburg”.

Tip: included with the National Park Sommercard: Rauriser Hochalmbahnen, Weisssee Glacier World, Wildkogel Arena, Grossarl Panorama Lifts…

Biking and adventure during your summer holidays  

Marked mountain bike trails, leisurely E-bike and bicycle tours as well as challenging biking adventures such as the 3 MTB trails on the Kitzsteinhorn which, spanning a total of 12 km and 1500 vertical meters, are some of the most challenging in all of Salzburger Land – there is no doubt that 2-wheeling is a marvelous way to spend your holiday in Salzburger Land! Also possible: a stage or two of the 270 km-long Tauernradweg, which leads from Krimml all the way to Passau – past Piesendorf and Taxenbach at the entrance to Raurisertal.

If you would prefer to enjoy a bird’s eye view of our holiday region, we suggest booking a tandem paragliding flight with “Flieg mit Tom” or a helicopter tour with “SennAir”. You can also explore the National Park by water, on a guided rafting or canyoneering tour, for example…  

The Wonders of Water

The abundance of water inside Hohe Tauern National Park is absolutely amazing. Whether you gaze in awe at Krimml Waterfalls, refresh your hiking-weary feet in an icy-cold stream, try your hand at stand-up paddling on Zeller See, or simply take a big gulp of spring water straight from the source – the immense power of water is tangible everywhere. Incidentally: Whenever you turn on the faucet in your apartment, you will always be able to enjoy highest-quality drinking water!

Other excursion tips (also suitable for families): The Rauriser UrQuell in upper Raurisertal is an astonishing place of power, while the Waterfall Path in Kolm Saigurn at the foot of the Hoher Sonnblick leads across a suspension footbridge and past 5 imposing waterfalls.
