Things are a bit different here,
in GRIMMIMG-DONNERSBACHTAL, a delightful jewel to be found amidst the bustling Schladming-Dachstein holiday region.
A place where world-class ski slopes meet traditional alpine lodges. Where rugged wilderness basks in pleasant pockets of warm sunshine.
That’s us – the mountain and the valley. And we’re here for you!
You are more than welcome to enter our world. It is our pleasure to place our DISTINCTIVENESS on display so that you can read, see and feel that Grimming-Donnersbachtal really is “A BIT DIFFERENT”. It is actually quite a challenge to present the region from its most attractive side, because it has so many! How hard it is to choose from amongst the extensive variety of special places, hidden treasures, people and their stories, when new and exciting things continue to pop up around every corner.
Here you will find a few tales of tranquil ADVENTURES and adventurous TRANQUILITY; of beautiful nature and of natural beauty; of the mountain and of the valley.
Whether winter, spring, summer or autumn, make yourself comfortable and take some time to discover more about our Grimming-Donnersbachtal.
You’ll see, it …
CRISP WHITE SNOW has covered the mountain and the valley and has brought with it a sense of peace. Nature is sleeping and you FIND YOURSELF MESMERISED by its calm breaths.
POPE PIUS II WAS FROM IRDNING! HE WOULD HAVE LOVED THE IMAGINATIVE AND FANCIFUL SCULPTURE PARK.
THE HEARTS OF NATURE-LOVERS BEAT FASTER WHEN HIKING ALONG THE PLANNERALM RIDGE. AND IT IS TRULY AN EXCEPTIONAL EXPERIENCE TO TAKE A REFRESHING DIP IN THE POOL AT THE “RIESNERALM”, SURROUNDED BY LARGE WOODEN ANIMALS AND A SEA OF GREEN PEAKS. SPLASH!
WHERE THE LONE MOUNTAIN “KULM” AND ITS PREHISTORIC BURIAL GROUNDS FORM THE CENTRE, AND QUAINT VILLAGES BY THE NAME OF “LANTSCHERN”, “GATSCHEN” AND “QUILK” FORM A BORDERING TRIANGLE, THERE LIES AIGEN.
A ROMANTIC VILLAGE FOUND IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ENNS VALLEY, HOME TO TWO CASTLES, THE WARMEST LAKE IN THE VALLEY, 18 HOLES AND A TOTAL OF 1230 COWS. AND SHHHHHH, DON’T TELL ANYONE … BUT FROM “VORBERG” YOU WILL HAVE THE MOST SENSATIONAL VIEW OF THE MOUNTAIN OF ALL MOUNTAINS, OUR GRIMMING.
THIS PICTURESQUE PLACE LIES DIRECTLY AT THE FOOT OF THE RUINS OF WOLKENSTEIN CASTLE; A DOMINATING PRESENCE FOR ALMOST 1000 YEARS (ALTHOUGH NOW IN A MERE ARCHITECTURAL SENSE).
IT IS ALSO THE HOME TO A PACK OF HAPPY HUSKIES AND ONE OF THE MOST STUNNING GORGES IN AUSTRIA. A VERITABLE WATER EXTRAVAGANZA!
You’ll see, it makes sense.
