Unternberg in winter - a true paradise
Whether on a board or skis, runners, snowshoes, or tucked into a pair of warm hiking boots, in Unternberg everybody finds their personal winter paradise right outside the front door. Enjoy your winter holiday in clear, healthy mountain air and pristine countryside!
Getting to the snowy Aineck, with lifts connecting to the Katschberg, couldn't be easier, either in your own car or on the convenient ski bus. And those inevitable refreshment breaks, with a combination of sunny terraces, mouthwatering treats and friendly people, are certain to make every ski vacation a truly memorable occasion. Either with the Lungau Ski Pass or the Lungo, you will get to enjoy all the pistes throughout the SkiLungau and Obertauern ski regions.
Ice stock - played on a frozen pond next to Gasthof Post-Gfrererstadl - whether during the daytime or in the evening under the lights, is always a welcome change of pace. They also host guest tournaments there, with teams battling it out for the honors. Equipment is available to rent on-site.
Enjoy the natural environment in Unternberg away from the ski slopes, perhaps taking a winter hike or Nordic walking. Following hiking paths that have been cleared of snow, along the banks of the River Mur, to Schloss Moosham or on the sunny Mitterberg, you will discover countless glorious impressions of the wintry landscapes, trees laden by hoar frost and snow crystals that glisten in the sunshine. Or, maybe you would like to take part in a guided hike by torchlight through Unternberg after dark, concluding with a friendly get-together at a local "watering hole".
Nordic-walking poles may be borrowed free of charge from the tourist office.
A romantic sleigh- or carriage ride, either as a couple or as part of a high-spirited group, through countryside blanketed deep in snow, is guaranteed to leave you with lasting impressions. And of course, an expedition such as this inevitably has to end up at a local pub where you can warm your cockles.

In Unternberg, when the snow conditions are just right, you will be able to ski along the sunny Murtalloipe to the villages of St. Michael, Zederhaus or Muhr.

Unternberg is an ideal base for backcountry ski tours of the Lungau mountains. Due to the frequently changing weather conditions in Lungau, you will need to decide at short-notice whether a sunnier or a safer tour is going to be the right choice for you. Whether you eventually head out on a skiing expedition in the Nockberge or prefer to tackle the challenges of a summit tour in the Niedere Tauern range, the Lungau ski-touring guidebook is available at the tourist office with all the information you might need.
Only head out into the backcountry if you have excellent equipment and you are fully informed about the current situation!
