Family and skiing holiday in the Gitschtal Valley
Due to the current situation of the circulating virus COVID-19 we decided to close the JUFA Hotel until April 30, 2020.
Our colleagues in the JUFA Booking Center are available for questions about your booking from Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. You can find answers to questions about your booking in the FAQs.
It is for a good reason that the Gitschtal at Lake Weissensee belongs to the Carinthia nature arena! In the summer, blooming alpine meadows impress and in the winter, magic snow-covered mountain worlds. The cosy family hotel is located on the edge of the valley in the small town of Weissbriach, close to the town centre and directly at the slope. The crystal-clear Weissensee remains a natural jewel all year round and is always worth a visit – whether for swimming, fishing, hiking or ice skating.
The Gitschtal valley is ideal for relaxed hiking with children, also cycling, or to comfortably slalom into the valley with skis. Under the motto “Village-Ex-Perience”, the JUFA Hotel Gitschtal – Landerlebnis*** offers lasting impressions: At the mini-farm, children can learn firsthand farming skills; at the pet zoo, young guests quickly make friends with goat, rabbit & co. By the way, you are welcome to bring along your four-legged friend – the facilities and staff are absolutely dog-friendly!
Wellness can be enjoyed extensively at the JUFA Hotel Gitschtal – Landerlebnis***. After an active day in the magnificent nature, adults like to relax on the sun terrace of the café, in the sauna area, or at the “Schwitzstubn” fitness centre. Meanwhile, kids are allowed to let off steam in the games room or on the hotel’s own private playground. You can even take a trip to the past! The “Dorf-Schmied’n” (village blacksmith workshop) or the old “Brechlhütt’n” (village bath house) give you an insight into the village life of bygone days – a visit is worthwhile.
During the winter, the Gitschtal valley becomes a popular winter sports resort for families! Very well-maintained slopes and no waiting queues at the ski-lift ensure carefree winter fun. Ski passes (Weissbriach ski area) are included for guests. Ice-golf players, skaters and ice-hockey players have a great time on the frozen Weissensee – an unforgettable highlight amidst this picturesque landscape!
