Tips & Recommen-

So much to see, so much to experience

When a region has more to offer

Silent waters run deep, as the saying goes... As popular as the Lungau has been for many a year hosting guests from near and far, it has still managed to preserve its peaceful tranquility. But even aside from mountains and nature, it conceals countless other memorable highlights you might not notice at first glance. Special events, outstanding dining opportunities, stores: the mix is colorful, with many events, restaurants and shops representing a successful combination of traditional and modern.

Our event recommendations

Always something new

Taurachbahn winter trip

A trip like in the old days, with steam and whistles the historic Taurachbahn crosses the winter wonderland. The winter train runs from Mauterndorf to St. Andrä and back on Advent weekends and during the Christmas vacations. The steam locomotive is ahead, the heated wagons behind, at the station and in the train you will be well provided with tea and mulled wine: A ride with the Taurachbahn is a very special experience.

Cultural hiking in winter

Chapels and wayside shrines, historical buildings such as the typical Troadkasten and small monuments, special places in the landscape and natural monuments: along the many walking and hiking trails in the Lungau there are many special features to discover. Even in winter, when these cultural treasures are embedded in the white of the snow-covered landscape, the atmosphere is unique.

Advent Trail Katschberg

It is a pre-Christmas highlight and pure romance in the snowy mountains and forests: In a good 45 minutes walking time or alternatively by horse-drawn sleigh you reach the Pritzhütte, where the Advent Trail starts. Torches and lanterns light the way from hut to hut, where culinary delights, regional handicrafts and Christmas traditions are presented and you are invited to linger with music and song.

Lazy Flamingo in Obertauern

Lazy Flamingo Obertauern

Though actually a ski metropolis, Obertauern is also well worth a visit in summer – while most of the local restaurants are busily preparing for next winter, a number of hotspots stay open. The “Lazy Flamingo”, for example, treats its summer guests to a laid-back gastronomic concept: In the American Restaurant – Diner – Bar, you are able to enjoy mouthwatering burger variations, fajitas and wraps. The “American way of life” in the middle of the Radstädter Tauern mountains. A great tip!
