JUFA Hotel Donnersbachwald – Almerlebnis***

Hiking and skiing holiday on the Riesneralm

The Styrian village of Donnersbachwald, embedded in a side valley of the Enns Valley, belongs to the Holiday Region Schladming-Dachstein. Our alpine experience and holiday village is located directly on the Riesneralm, surrounded by majestic peaks and lush alpine meadows.

The children-friendly JUFA Hotel Donnersbachwald – Almerlebnis*** offers active families and outdoor enthusiasts ideal opportunities for relaxation. Numerous hiking paths and mountain bike trails, opportunities for rafting, “larch-trout” fishing or first climbing attempts on artificial rocks. In the winter, skiing holidays start straight from the JUFA Hotel, right onto the slopes!

Children can freely let off steam, in the hotel, as well as outdoors! The youngest guests are in good hands in the game room and, from spring 2017 onward, the pet zoo hut ensures fun with the animals on the daily schedule. Parents can relax in the sauna cabin on the edge of the forest, or enjoy the sun on the terrace, sitting together for a cosy chat. The terrace is also a great meeting-point in the evening. Enjoy the scenery, the fresh mountain air and the star-studded sky with a glass of wine – a perfect moment!

The Schladming Adventure Waterpark, the Sölktal Nature Park, the Altaussee Salt World or the Planai Adventure Park, are just some of the region´s many rewarding tour destinations. The huge wooden animals of the Wooden Animals Park on the Riesneralm are a true family holiday highlight for the children. The winter sports region´s altitude of 5970 feet above the sea level, also ensures snow until the spring. Ski slopes, which are up to 7 km long and with a difference in altitude of 2950 feet, feature first-class winter outdoor enjoyment – adequate for young and old slope-riders. In particular, the 1st. Austrian children´s ski swing and a five hectare-sized children´s ski resort are part of the very attractive infrastructure of this ski resort. The professional alpine base training centre also provides offers amateur ski racers with the opportunity to improve their technique. Tour hikers, cross-country skiers and snow-shoe hikers will also find the ideal conditions here – unforgettable winter days are ensured amidst stunning alpine scenery!
