Altenmarkt-Zauchensee – The twin holiday-paradise in Salzburger Sportworld

The twin holiday-paradise Altenmarkt-Zauchensee, only 65 km south of Mozart's city Salzburg, is part of Salzburger Sportworld, a beautiful holiday destination in the idyllic Tauern valleys, with its neighbouring towns Radstadt, Eben, Filzmoos, Flachau, Wagrain-Kleinarl and St.Johann-Alpendorf. This area caters for summer and winter holidays, with everything your heart could desire.

Altenmarkt-Zauchensee is a combination of two contrasting holiday towns. 

The charming, traditional holiday town of Altenmarkt, at 842 m above sea level, lies in an open valley, bordered by  forested hills and an amazing mountain backdrop. This market parish is the oldest settlement in Ennspongau. We invite you to spend time here, explore the beautiful marketplace, the Gothic Church that was built back in the 14th Century, our local history museums, the traditional guesthouses and the wonderful selection of shops which create a shopping paradise with heart and soul. Naturally there are also plenty of cafés and restaurants for a quick break in your travels. 

The perfect infrastructure also includes sports and recreational facilities, medical centres and the Therme Amadé, that is open all year round with its pools and sauna area, spread out over 30,000 m². It is perfect for spa lovers, families and those just wanting to relax.

The mountain village of Zauchensee is 10 km away from Altenmarkt, right at the end of the valley at 1,350 m above sea level, up in the summer pastures. It is surrounded by the high alpine mountains and has a 3 ha mountain lake at its entrance. Zauchensee is one of the highest located ski resorts in Sportworld Amadé and is known as a "snow hole", due to the high levels of snow it attracts. In summer, it transforms into the Magic Mountains club which offers all-inclusive package deals, especially good for families as it offers so many activities.

Enjoy Altenmarkt-Zauchensee, whatever the season. Its climate is not too extreme and the mountain air is fresh and clean, ideal for a little rest and relaxation. Create your perfect holiday here by combining the many offers for activity holidays or fun breaks, with its gentle and family friendly walks and E-bike trails, sporty and challenging hikes and bike rides, hearty culinary treats or the chance to get involved with our creative/cultural programmes.

Summer here is ideal for healthy activities such as hiking, Nordic-walking, running, cycling, mountainbiking, E-biking, horse riding and in in the neighbouring town Radstadt even golfing. For those who are a bit more adventurous there is also climbing, Mountain-Cart, Segway and Bockerl trips or cave exploration, canyoning and river tubing.

In Winter, you will find two very different ski resorts in this twin holiday-paradise so that there is a piste to suit everyone.  There's also plenty of other ski resorts nearby in the area of Salzburger Sportworld and if that is not enough, your lift pass covers you for the whole of Ski amadé, which is Austria's largest ski cooperative. 
Whichever snow sport tickles your fancy, you will find it here with skiing,  freeriding, snowboarding, cross-country skiing, winter walking, ice-skating, snow shoeing, winter curling or tobogganing. Enjoy the seasonal package deals to get the most from your holiday. 

Altenmarkt-Zauchensee is located in the centre of everything. Altenmarkt-Zauchensee is very easy to access due to its proximity to the A10 motorway. It makes the ideal start point for day trips to the multitude of tourist attractions in the region.  

We look forward to your non-binding request and your visit!
