Winter Holidays in the Hideaway

Snowy Goldegg in Salzburg

The summits around Goldegg may not only get a white coating over night in October, yet winter really kicks off in December. At that time with sufficient amounts of snow for virtually any winter sports one can dream of pursuing in the Austrian mountains.

At an altitude of 825 meters, Goldegg is a winter paradise off the beaten track of large ski areas. The latter can easily be reached, however you can use it to your full advantage that Goldegg is a more leisurely and relaxed place.  Winter in the Pongau is not only characterized by skiing as winter hiking trails and cross-country ski trails start right next to the hotel.  When the lake is frozen, you can even have a go at ice skating or Bavarian curling (ice stick shooting) with Goldegg’s locals.

Skiing in the largest Austrian ski arena

Goldegg in the Pongau is surrounded by some of the most splendid Austrian ski areas: Gasteinertal, Großarltal or the Salzburg Sportwelt lie within a thirty-minute radius by car and can be enjoyed with one single ski pass.

Hideaway ski resort Buchberg in Goldegg

We recommend nearby Buchberg to families with children ready to join ski school classes. The well laid out and safe ski area with its ski school is ideal for the entire family to learn how to ski and to enjoy it as well.

Cross-country skiing for beginners and professionals

The lake-side trail around Goldegg Lake starts directly at the Seehof terrace where two other trails branch off as well.  At Goldegg, you can be looking forward to 45km of traced cross-country trails well prepared for skating. Most of the trails are ideal for cross-country skiing for beginners. The trails with many meters in altitude difference can be quite strenuous and are perfect for advanced cross-country skiers-

What else does winter have in store?

Do you fancy tobogganing, ice skating, snowshoeing or simply a winter hike? You are spoilt for choice around Goldegg. We gladly advise and assist you with your day plan.  Starting in Goldegg, horse sleigh rides can be undertaken through the subdued nature. On top of that, you can also partake in various cultural activities, lively traditions and customs as well as Advent markets during the Christmas season.

The snowed-in Seehof in Salzburg

The cold time of the year can also be very well enjoyed through the window pane. You can take your pick from the hotel’s Suhrkamp Library as well as from various art and illustrated books or daily newspapers and magazines while enjoying an aperitif at the cozy fireplace. The Alpine sauna might also be a great alternative prior to getting seated in the HECHT Restaurant or at the Chef’s Table in the Seehof kitchen to experience most elaborate gourmet cuisine.

Please send us a non-binding holiday inquiry for this cozy time of the year and look forward to a relaxing and/or active winter at Goldegg’s Hideaway, the Seehof Hotel. We start off our Seehof winter with the traditional St. Nicholas weekend on December 4th!
