The idyllic Enns Valley is a credit to Styria as the green heart of Austria. The long valley with meadows, forests and gentle hills is bordered to the north and south by towering mountain ranges such as the Dachstein mountains and the Ennstal Alps.

The Enns Valley thus offers plenty of space to relax, unwind, enjoy and exercise. Here you can unwind and recharge your batteries. With the
IMLAUER Hotel Schloss Pichlarn
you have the perfect retreat to make your stay in the Enns Valley a treat for body and soul in every respect.

On powdery slopes

In winter, the Enns Valley presents itself with snow-covered mountain slopes, glistening snow caps and powdery pistes. Three
ski areas
around the IMLAUER Hotel Schloss Pichlarn with a total of 368 kilometers of perfectly groomed slopes await you.

The well-known ski regions of Schladming-Dachstein, Schneebärenland (Tauplitz, Riesneralm and Planneralm) and Hinterstoder-Wurzeralm are only between 12 and 50 minutes by car from the hotel. From beginners to experienced alpinists, the variety offers the perfect conditions for every skier and snowboarder.

Pleasure sports in vogue

The snow-covered meadows glisten in the sunlight and you glide slowly through the landscape. All around, the scenery is like something out of a winter wonderland. Being active while enjoying nature and the landscape – that’s what
cross-country skiing
wonderfully. As a result, this sport has experienced an incredible upswing in recent years.

Whether classic parallel running or dynamic skating, the region around Grimming Donnersbachtal and Bad Mitterndorf, Ausseerland-Salzkammergut region offers something for everyone. 21 perfectly groomed cross-country ski trails between 2.5 and 10 kilometers in length are available here.

Active in quiet nature

For those who want to enjoy nature and the landscape even more intensively and slow down at the same time, there are
snowshoe hikes
the ideal pleasure sport. At a steady pace, you make your way through untouched terrain and discover nature away from the groomed slopes.

Start your first hikes directly from the hotel across snow-covered meadows and hills. Those who are more confident can experience the Schladming-Dachstein and Grimming-Donnersbachtal regions up close on several routes.
