A winter dream
In the winter, you’ll have no problem accessing Unternberg’s local ski area, the Aineck-Katschberg, which also has exceptionally reliable snow conditions. Likewise, the rest of the surrounding ski areas in the Lungau region can be reached within minutes. You can look forward to enjoying winter sports in clear, refreshing mountain air and on the well-groomed ski slopes. As an alternative, you might enjoy a leisurely cross-country tour, a romantic sleighride, tobogganing, winter hiking on our groomed trails, ice stock, or ice-skating on the skating pond (with floodlights for nighttime fun). You also have the opportunity to delve into the local history of the Lungau region with an exciting museum tour in Unternberg’s Moosham Castle.
