the pearl of the Lammertal…

…is located about 45 km southeast of the Mozart city Salzburg. This lovely place, which has remained traditional and down-to-earth, is worth a visit at any time of year. A place conveniently located for a variety of attractions and a place where the hosts will be happy to pamper you.

Abtenau in the Tennengau Lammertal offers you 5 seasons: The mountain spring, the alpine summer, the farmer’s autumn, the Advent and the winter. Each season is full of movement, rest and enjoyment, combined with tradition, experience and nature.

The mountain spring

On the Tennengebirge, the snow is slowly receding, but the meadow and alpine flowers are coming out all the faster. It’s time to activate the hiking boots again and start taking trips again! After the short days of winter, it’s also time to celebrate again. Already from Mother’s Day, live music groups will again play weekly at the central market place in Abtenau.

The alpine summer

Now is high season for the alpine huts. The cows and horses are already on the alpine pastures, for example on the Postalm – Austria’s largest alpine pasture area. The Almkäse is again freshly prepared and after the hike you look forward to a fragrant Almjause.

The numerous sights in and around Abtenau can be reached in no time. The Mozart city Salzburg, the Salzkammergut with the Wolfgangsee, Bad Ischl, Hallstätter See and the Gosausee, the Liechtensteinklamm, the Großglockner, the salt mine, the Eisriesenwelt and many other destinations invite you to varied excursions.

Abtenau as a destination offers a varied program that will make your vacation an unforgettable experience. Not only the hiker can enjoy the nature of Abtenau and surroundings to the fullest, but also the mountain biker. Our hiking guides will be happy to take you on a hike and tell you about the place, the surroundings and the history. The outdoor guide accompanies you on outdoor adventures, on land and in the water like rafting, canyoning, and much more.

The peasant autumn

The harvest has already been gathered, the cattle are returning home from the pastures. The whole SalzburgerLand is now celebrating. In addition to countless Farmer’s Autumn festivities around Abtenau, we also celebrate an annual Farmer’s Autumn Festival, as well as the Harvest Festival at the end of September and the “Lichtbratl Monday” on the Postalm with music in the huts on the first Monday in October.

A winter roas through Advent

Advent in the Lammertal means: Experience the pre-Christmas season away from the hustle and bustle of consumerism with tradition and regional products. From the Krampuslauf to the nativity scene exhibition and the Advent market, there is something for everyone during this time. But you can also really enjoy the homemade Christmas cookies, coffee with “Kletzenbrot” or a delicious dinner by candlelight. Get out into the fresh air! A winter hike, a horse-drawn sleigh ride or curling are activities for everyone at this time of year, so that you can return to the warm room with a fresh face. Is there anything more beautiful at this time of year?


The whole family can also enjoy the winter season. Abtenau has perfect conditions at Sonnleiten and Karkogel for ski beginners and returners. Advanced skiers will also find more than 140 km of fun on the slopes of the Karkogel and the Dachstein West ski region. A basic cross-country skiing course can be used free of charge by Abtenau guests and facilitates the start of wonderful cross-country skiing kilometers. The trails are freshly groomed daily and are also available free of charge in Abtenau. In the village itself you will find about 45 km of groomed trails – classic and skating. Other cross-country skiing trails in the surrounding area, e.g. on the Postalm, extend the offer.
Winter can also be enjoyed quietly with snowshoeing, hiking through the winter landscape, curling or horse-drawn sleigh rides. Afterwards, a mulled wine warms the cheeks and fingers again.
In the picturesque village of Abtenau there is also something to do in the winter evenings: The winter toboggan run on the Karkogel also operates three times a week in the evenings. An evening hike with torches provides a cozy end to a winter day.
