Grossarl, the region of Grossarl-Hüttschlag & the Grossarl Valley

Discover a valley full of life in amongst the mountains, and experience the pure energy of life, from the babbling of the wild mountain brooks through to the rustling of the woodland in the wind, and all that is going on in Grossarl itself.

The Grossarltal region in Salzburg inspires guests with its wonderful nature, great opportunities to rest, and the wide range of sporting and recreational activities available.

Enjoy the benefits of a perfect location on holiday on the edge of the Hohe Tauern National Park, with its unspoiled nature, wild scenery; a perfect habitat for animals, and a place that guarantees marvellous displays of nature and lasting memories.

The “Valley of Alms” is a tributary valley in Salzburger Land, and so doesn’t have any problems of through traffic. Its high altitude means that it is fog-free, a guarantee for beautiful holidays.

The village of Grossarl and the Tauernhof

Grossarl itself stands at 900 m above sea level, and is the main village in the Grossarltal region in Pongau, Salzburg.

Our 4* Vitalhotel Tauernhof stands at the edge of the village, very close to all the places you need on holiday: in winter, the ski lift is right next to the hotel, and in summer it is where the loveliest Alm walks begin.

Top ski area & wonderful hiking region with leisure pools and thermal springs

The Grossarltal-Dorfgastein ski area has won the award twice for being the best of Salzburg’s ski areas. Families especially appreciate how easy it is to keep an eye on the children, as well as the variety on offer in the ski area for winter holidays.

But Großtarl is also very much worth visiting in summer. More than 40 of the Alpine huts serve food and drink in summer, and there are hikes and bike tours taking you to the most beautiful places in this Alpine refuge.

Take a swim in the hotel’s own Tauernhof panorama swimming pool with both its indoor pools and a heated outdoor pool. The Grossarl leisure centre is just 5 min walk from the Tauernhof and has an open-air swimming pool. The Alpine thermal baths in Bad Hofgastein are less than an hour’s drive away, as is the leisure pool in Bischofshofen.


The Grossarltal region – A valley with all sorts of possibilities in summer

The Grossarltal region – A valley full of culinary delights

Enjoy days out to places with crystal clear drinking-quality water springs, and enjoy the fresh, clean air of the Salzburg Mountains on hikes. Leave everyday life and its stress behind you, and enjoy pure escape and rest.

Our Tauernhof tip: Take advantage of the Grossarl lifts both in summer and winter

The lifts operating during the day in summer take you swiftly and conveniently up into the mountains where you can choose from a wealth of hikes with wonderful views. The bottom station of the Panoramabahn lift is just a stone’s throw from the Tauernhof.


In winter, grab your skis and get straight into the lift next to the hotel. It takes you up into the Grossarl-Dorfgastein ski region, part of the Amadé ski area with 760 km of pistes. After a full ski day in one of the largest ski areas, take your last turn almost next to the Hotel Tauernhof. Ski-in and ski-out in the Amadé ski area at its best!
