Winter sports in Kreischberg

Kreischberg is part of the Murau ski area, which lies in the middle of the valley between Stolzalpe (1870m) and Frauenalpe (2004m). A child-friendly winter sports resort and ideal base for the many ski areas that surround it. With one ski pass, "der Murtaler", you can go to the Turracher Höhe, Kreischberg, Lachtal, Hohentauern and Präbichl. A total of 55 cable cars and ski lifts and more than 150 kilometers of slopes. The distance from the chalet to the Kreischberg ski lift is approximately 200 meters. The winter season starts in the first week of December.

Ideal holiday area

Due to its central location, it is an ideal holiday area, both in summer and in winter. More than 200 sunny days a year and the snow-sure ski area make it a perfect winter sports destination. In the summer it is a beautiful area for walkers and cyclists with more than 270 km of marked trails and the possibility to take GPS routes. Golf enthusiasts will also enjoy the surroundings, with no fewer than 24 golf courses. The gondola is open in the summer from Sunday to Wednesday from 9 AM to 4 PM.


Murau (8 km away) is known for Austria's cleanest air, its city rights and the schlager stars Brunner & Brunner. Furthermore, the old-fashioned steam train "Mur Valley Railway" runs through Murau. The Mur River winds through the landscape, ideal for canoeing and rafting. There are also several lakes in the area for sailing or windsurfing. A car trip through Nockalmstasse, open from May to October, is highly recommended! This is a journey through an original low mountain landscape, which was protected as National Park Nockberge in 1987.
