A variety-packed winter wonderland spreads out at the feet of the 2,941 metre high Hochkönig in the winter. In the heart of Salzburger Land and roughly an hour away from the city of Salzburg, the three holiday villages Dienten, Maria Alm and Mühlbach welcome you on holiday on the Hochkönig. Tradition and modernness are combined in this down-to-earth holiday region into an ideal symbiosis. The region's warmth and charm is reflected in the Hotel Mitterwirt too, which contributes to that perfect holiday feeling.

Development into one of the most beautiful winter sports regions in Salzburger Land

People have been skiing in Salzburger Land for many years. Gradually an appropriate infrastructure was also developed in the area around the Hochkönig for the ever increasing numbers of guests in the winter with the dawn of winter sports in Austria at the start of the 20th century.

While the first lifts were simple drag lifts, the region developed further quickly. Over the course of the years the region morphed into a state-of-the-art flagship ski region.

Incredibly majestic skiing

With an altitude of between 800 and 1,900 metres the best winter sports conditions prevail in the Hochkönig region from the start of December until well into April. There are 120 kilometres of slopes open to skiers and snowboarders in the ski area. The region has another attractive highlight with one of the most stunning skiing circuits in the Alps: the Königstour includes 32 km of seamlessly linked skiing fun and connects the three towns Dienten, Maria Alm and Mühlbach with each other.
