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!
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 …
Can you imagine if time just stood still for a moment? Whilst breathing in the natural beauty of your surroundings, you take this one MOMENT in time to linger in the NOW.
Consciously in the present, you appreciate not only the stunning grandeur of mountain and valley, but also the smaller WONDERS. In the sparkling snowflakes you discover unique works of art. Observing a single seed, you visualise the mighty tree that might stand there one hundred years from now.
Pausing. MAKES SENSE.
The CHARACTERFUL nature and unique FEATURES of this REGION are highly prized by those who live here. Thus, the pages that follow are an attempt to capture and share the tales this picturesque region has to tell and to make sense of it for all-comers; those from nearby and from further afield.
We hope you find pleasure in getting to know our HOME.

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, THAT makes sense.
