Chalets

Fully equipped chalets close to the Uttendorf swimming lake  

A new, extraordinary holiday lodge ensemble is being born in Uttendorf inside the Hohe Tauern National Park Holiday Region: 14 double lodges and row lodges along with one apartment lie close to the popular swimming lake with view of the Hohe Tauern and not far from the center of the “family village” in Salzburger Land. Spend your holidays as of winter 21/22 far removed from the bustling outside world in a charming 3000-resident village in the Oberpinzgau region - ca. 7 km from the shopping town of Mittersill, 33 km from Krimml Waterfalls and 35 km from Kitzbühel. Weißsee Glacier World is just 18 km away, while the stop for the ski bus is roughly a three-minute walk from your Tauern Lodge at the north car park for the swimming lake.  

Lodges with sauna, next to the swimming lake     

The Tauern Lodges in Uttendorf are ideal for 8 to 10 people. Ranging in area up to 135 m², you will feel right at home. These holiday homes feature 4 or 5 bedrooms and 1 to 3 baths. In the combination living-cooking-dining area, which is bathed in natural lighting, you will spend comfortable hours around the spacious dining table or on the sofa with family or friends. In the kitchen of your self-catering chalets, you will find all the necessary cooking utensils.

The chalets are fully equipped and furnished with high-quality materials with loving attention paid to every detail. Enjoy the view of the Hohe Tauern as you contemplate your next holiday adventure in Salzburger Land, sitting out on your balcony or terrace. If, after a day out in the fresh air, you want to really relax and do something good for your tired limbs, what better than a good healthy sweat in your own private Finnish sauna. There is plenty of room for your skiing or hiking equipment in the practical ski storage room, with ample parking spaces also available for your car.

Glacier and lake in the Hohe Tauern National Park Holiday Region  

In the heart of the Hohe Tauern National Park Holiday Region, ca. 20 km from Zell am See and 35 km from Kitzbühel, you will discover Uttendorf, the “family village” in Salzburger Land. With its swimming lake, Weißsee Glacier World and the Celtic Village, this Oberpinzgau community is (still) an insider tip for families and active holidaymakers (with opportunities including via ferratas, ski-touring destinations as well as high-alpine adventures). Within easy reach of Tauern Lodges Uttendorf are an array of TOP excursion destinations including Krimml Waterfalls (33 km) and the Grossglockner High-Alpine Road (toll station ca. 35 km). These attractions are just two of more than 60 you can enjoy free of charge with the included Nationalpark Sommercard.  

- Nearest train station: Uttendorf (1 km, “Uttendorf Stubachtal”), Zell am See (20 km)
- Nearest airport: Salzburg (100 km)
- Nearest supermarkets: Spar (800 m), ADEG (650 m)
- Ski bus: north car park at the swimming lake, two minutes’ walk. The bus ride to the lift valley station for the Enzingerboden / Weißsee Glacier World takes roughly 40 minutes. The ski train to nearby ski areas (Kaprun, Zell am See, Wildkogel Arena) is likewise free of charge.  

Nationalpark Sommercard and Guest Card included

Included in the cost of the stay, the Nationalpark Sommercard gives you free daily entrance to one of the attractions inside Hohe Tauern National Park: Your opportunities include Grossglockner High Alpine Road, several summer lifts (such as Weißsee Glacier World, Wildkogel Arena and Rauriser Hochalmbahnen), outdoor swimming areas (the Uttendorf swimming lake, essentially right outside your front door, the Hinkelsteinbad in Piesendorf, the swimming lake in Niedernsill and the Sonnblickbad in Rauris) as well as museums (e.g. National Park Worlds) and Krimml Waterfalls. You will also be able to ride public transportation with your guest card for free! In winter, the Uttendorf guest card also brings you a wide selection of exciting discounts, for example Uttendorf mountain lifts/ Weißsee Glacier World.  

Weißsee Glacier World and Swimming Lake

Weißsee Glacier World is a true jewel and very family-friendly. Two children under the age of 12 years can enjoy the skiing and hiking region free of charge if accompanied by their parents. Two children under the age of 12, accompanied by their parents, can enjoy the skiing and hiking region free of charge. While the delightful, never-overcrowded ski area is perfect for families, the wide-open slopes next to the Rudolfshütte are a paradise for ski tourers and alpinists. Stubacher Sonnblick, the Hocheiser and Granatspitze excite ski tourers until well into springtime. Back in the valley: Whether you prefer cross-country skiing on the Seeloipe or the Pinzga Loipe (200 km) or setting out on extended winter hikes – the opportunities for alternative winter sports have to be seen to be believed – one tip: The guided snowshoe hikes with a National Park Ranger are free for our guests!

In summer, Weißsee Glacier World attracts visitors with high-alpine scenery and a wonderful selection of hikes, mountain tours and fixed-cable climbs. At the Uttendorf swimming lake – just a few minutes’ walk from your Tauern Lodge - you will be able to bask in the sunshine. In the meantime, your children will have a fantastic time “being kids” in the playground, in the water or on the waterslide. Before returning to your holiday home to wind down your vacation day in your own living room or out on the balcony sipping on a good glass of wine…

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. With Tauern Lodges Uttendorf as your base camp, you can spend amazing days of skiing inside Weisssee Glacier World. Just a three-minute walk from your lodge, you will be able to hop on the free ski bus. A free ski train will also carry you to other nearby ski areas including the Wildkogel Arena in Bramberg, the Kitzsteinhorn in Kaprun or the Schmittenhöhe in Zell am See.   
Weisssee Glacier World is a big hit with winter sports fans due to its never-overcrowded, beautifully groomed 23 km of pistes, fair ski pass prices along with snow conditions you can count on. Families, in particular, value the opportunities presented by this ski area at elevations up to 2600 m. For ski tourers and freeriders, the area surrounding the Rudolfshütte is an absolute paradise with a reputation that extends far beyond Austria’s borders.   

SNOWSHOEING, CROSS-COUNTRY SKIING AND WINTER HIKING

Away from the pistes, too, there are plenty of ways to experience winter at its most beautiful: Whether cross-country skiing on the beautifully maintained "Pinzga Loipe", exploring the marked winter hiking paths, trudging through the fresh snow on snowshoes, a romantic sleigh ride, a fun-filled sledding expedition on the world's longest floodlit sled run with the whole family, all the while enjoying the magnificent nature of the National Park – the selection of winter sports opportunities close to Tauern Lodges Uttendorf is enormous.


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 Tauern Lodge in Uttendorf. Enjoy the view of the Hohe Tauern. Or another good sweat in your private sauna...

My Favorite Places

Verena Junger

What do I like most about the Hohe Tauern National Park Holiday Region? Not only does it boast some of the top excursion destinations in Salzburger Land, it also gives you room to breathe, to escape and take things at a slower pace. For example, as you nibble on a platter of hearty snacks at a mountain hut. As you salute the sun on a remote mountaintop. Or as you refresh your feet in a babbling stream. For me, it is a successful combination of nature and (tourism) infrastructure. Since 2018 – and with the opening of Tauern Suites Mitterwirt - I have been a part of the Alps Residence team. Nothing pleases me more than when our guests are as excited about my home region as I am. I wish you lots of fun exploring the National Park!

Ibex near Großglockner High Alpine Road

Grossglockner High-Alpine Road

This 48 km-long scenic road is one of Austria’s most popular excursion destinations. And rightly so: From the toll station in Ferleiten, this high-mountain road – opened in 1935 – meanders its way through 36 switchbacks, flanked by imposing mountains, all the way to the pilgrimage town of Heiligenblut in Carinthia as well as up to the Kaiser Franz Josefs Höhe: where Austria’s highest mountain, the Grossglockner (elev. 3798 m), the Johannisberg and Pasterze glacier appear almost close enough to touch. You should definitely schedule an entire day for this excursion: Along the Grossglockner High-Alpine Road, there are countless opportunities to take snapshots and stretch your legs. 11 info points also provide you with fascinating insights into construction of this scenic road as well as the flora and fauna of Hohe Tauern National Park. And keep your eyes peeled - there’s always a chance you’ll see a marmot crossing the road in front of you or an ibex perched on the mountainside basking in the sunshine!

Rauris Primeval Forest - Nationalpark Hohe Tauern

Kolm Saigurn

Kolm Saigurn in Raurisertal is one of the most beautiful valley heads in Hohe Tauern National Park. In summer, it attracts hikers and mountaineers. The most popular destinations are – also suitable for families – Rauris Virgin Forest, the Durchgangalmen as well as the Waterfall Path. And for avid alpinists, the Hocharn (3254 m) as well as the Hoher Sonnblick (3106 m), which is also the site of Europe’s highest permanently staffed weather station. Most mountain tours begin at the Lenzanger car park, reachable by means of a 5 km-long toll road (National Park Sommercard partner, with a bus running to the valley head). Incidentally, not far from the toll station you can also put your treasure-hunting skills to the test: at the Bodenhaus gold-panning site, with a little bit of luck you might even pluck slivers of gold from the stream! At the Rauris valley head itself, mountain huts, the Ammererhof and the Naturfreundehaus (tip: children’s playground and Kneipp spa) give you the opportunity to enjoy a refreshment break and take in the magical scenery: In Kolm Saigurn, you will encounter one 3000 m peak and glacier after another, while cows and horses graze on lush alpine meadows and waterfalls rumble in the background.

bird of prey show in Rauris

Valley of Vultures

In Raurisertal, rare bearded vultures have been circling overhead in Krumltal since 1986. With a little bit of luck, they can be observed along with golden eagles, griffon vultures, marmots and ibex. To improve your chances, we suggest joining a National Park Excursion led by a National Park Ranger (July until September, free with the National Park Sommercard) Krumltal is a side valley of Raurisertal, an easy hike along a marked theme path (forestry road) to the Bräualm taking roughly 1 ½ hours. Insider tip: Pay a visit to the Lechnerhäusl, a small alpine inn at the entrance to the valley not far from the car park (their desserts are heavenly!). If you would like to learn more about birds of prey in Hohe Tauern National Park, I recommend the “Kings of the Air” National Park Exhibition in Rauris (in the small community known as Wörth), or attend the Bird of Prey Show at the Rauriser Hochalm, where Peter will be happy to share his vast knowledge about these creatures with you.

Krimml Waterfalls at Hohe Tauern National Park

Krimml Waterfalls

Krimml Waterfalls are an imposing excursion destination for the whole family (also a partner of the National Park Sommercard): Via the 4 km-long Waterfall Path with lookout points along the way, you will come right up to the thunderous torrents of Austria’s biggest waterfalls – and don’t be surprised if you get a little bit wet! Dropping a total of 380 vertical meters, Krimml Waterfalls are an amazing natural spectacle and actually the fifth-highest falls in the world. The lowest falls can be reached in approximately 5 minutes from the ticket hut at the entrance (also handicapped-accessible), after which the Waterfall Path gets steeper and leads through cool forest. My tip: Use the Pinzgauer Lokalbahn train to travel from Zell am See or Piesendorf to Krimml – you can ride it for free with the included National Park Sommercard.

National Park Worlds

A fascinating 1800 m² exhibition for big and small in Mittersill, introducing you (also playfully) to Hohe Tauern National Park, its inhabitants and unique features. One highlight of this exhibition is a 360° panoramic world. In Hohe Tauern National Park, the biggest national park in Austria, you will find numerous self-guided themed paths (including Rauris Virgin Forest, “Kings of the Air” in Rauris, the Emerald Path in Hollersbach and the Glacier Paths in Uttendorf) as well as exhibitions (incl. the National Park Gallery at Gipfelwelt 3000 on the Kitzsteinhorn). From July until mid-September, you also have the possibility of participating in one of the popular National Park Excursions, with trained National Park Rangers introducing you to some true natural jewels. These guided – and highly recommended! – tours are (just like the National Park Museum) free with the National Park Sommercard. Mittersill can also be reached on the Pinzgauer Lokalbahn – free with the National Park Sommercard. Incidentally, the “Kiosk + Lounge” at the train station serves what is probably the best coffee in this small shopping town along with cake made fresh every day.

Weißsee glacial lake in Uttendorf

Weisssee Glacier World

By gondola (National Park Sommercard partner), it takes roughly 20 minutes to ride from the valley station at the Enzingerboden up to Berghotel Rudolfshütte at 2315 m. When you get there, the first thing to do is enjoy the view. Before you lies the turquoise Weisssee, surrounded by mighty 3000 m peaks. One very popular mountain tour leads to the Kalser Törl (2525 m) and from there to the Medelzkopf (2760 m), past countless cairns that are also excellent photo motifs. For a truly memorable experience we suggest the fixed-cable climbs in the Weisssee area: the Kronprinz Rudolf via ferrata is ideal for beginners, while the “Kristallklettersteig” will definitely pose a challenge, even for experienced climbers. In winter, the Rudolfshütte is a popular starting point for rewarding ski tours to the top of the Stubacher Sonnblick, the Granatspitze or the Hocheiser. And don’t forget: The small-though-delightful ski area in Uttendorf in Salzburger Land is also ideal for families.

High Alpine Reservoir in Kaprun

High-Mountain Reservoirs

There are several reasons why the Kaprun High-Mountain Reservoirs in Kaprun are so impressive: the location of the turquoise reservoirs surrounded by 3000 m summits, the fascinating history of how they were constructed as well as the astonishing technological achievement which they represent (guided tours of the dam are possible). Even the journey up to the reservoirs is an amazing experience in its own right: At the Kesselfall in Kaprun, you will board a bus that will take you (including some really dark tunnels) to Europe’s biggest open funicular. Then, you will continue by bus, past the first reservoir and the popular Fürthermoaralm, until you reach the fascinating Moserboden reservoir at 2040 m, reminiscent of a Norwegian fjord. If you wish to take advantage of this opportunity for a short hike, we suggest the Herb Path leading from the Moserboden reservoir in roughly 45 minutes down to the Fürthermoaralm, where you will be greeted by delicious blueberry dumplings dusted with cinnamon sugar. This popular excursion destination in Salzburger Land is open from May until October.

Your Summer Holiday in Uttendorf

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 Tauern Lodges Uttendorf 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 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!

NATIONALPARK SOMMERCARD

With the Nationalpark 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 areas such as the Uttendorf swimming lake, 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 the Tauern Lodges, 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 Tauern Lodge in Uttendorf.

A list 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: Weisssee Glacier World with its fantastic scenery, 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 Uttendorf, 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, 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 lodge, you will always be able to enjoy highest-quality drinking water!

At the swimming lake in Uttendorf, you will be able to spend son-drenched hours gazing out at the Tauern mountains. With its wide selection of opportunities – including a bouldering park, water trampoline, swing islands, waterslide and playground – this natural swimming lake is especially popular with families. And best of all: The swimming lake is only a few minutes’ walk from your lodge!
