Austria is the ultimate destination for a winter holiday. Think picturesque wooded slopes, pretty mountain villages, plenty of snow and delicious food. Discover why Schloss Pichlarn has all the ingredients you need for magical Austria winter holidays.


Great Skiing and Winter Sports
During winter the popular ski resorts of Dachstein, Tauplitzalm, Riesneralm and Planneralm are all within easy reach and have pistes for all ability levels.
The ski season starts at the beginning of December. Schladming, a renowned resort, started this year's winter season on December 6th with the legendary Ski-Opening and a brand new main cable railway and is only 38.7 km from the castle. Guests can also snowshoe and cross-country ski in the grounds that surround the castle. Nearby there are also natural ice skating areas and many other winter sports options for Austrian winter holidays.


Indulge yourself at Schloss Pichlarn's Wellness and Spa facilities
After a day's skiing, it's important to relax and unwind, and the range of spa and wellness facilities at Schloss Pichlarn is ideal for pampering yourself in style. The Wellness Area is extensive, with an indoor and outdoor heated pools - swimming outside in the winter surrounded by snow is an unmissable experience. There are also steam baths and indoor and outdoor whirlpools heated to 35°C. Of course, there are all the spa facilities, one would expect at a luxury hotel, such as bathrobes and slippers for guests, a range of saunas and relaxation rooms.


Experience all the charm of an Austrian Christmas
The Advent markets are key ingredients of the recipe that makes Christmas in Austria so special. The nearby village of Pürgg, for example, is a small village which is transformed into an Advent market every year. On the first two Advent weekends, the market is open to visitors. One special thing about the market is the fact that the market stalls are actually in the houses of the village. Schloss Pichlarn itself with its backdrop of mountains, is the ultimate romantic hotel for Christmas, with gourmet festive menus, and abundant hospitality and cheer.
