A Fairytale Winter with Snow,
Adventure and Freedom

magical winter time at Schloss Pichlarn

When Jack Frost spreads his crystal-white blanket over the Ennstal and the Grimming mountain dons its most beautiful winter dress, the magical winter time has arrived at Schloss Pichlarn!

A cotton wool wonderland opens up right outside your front door that will remind you of childhood winters. Glittering slopes as far as the eye can see, criss-crossed here and there by animal tracks in the snow. Snow-covered forests that invite you to wander and to be completely with yourself. Enjoy the peace and quiet of wintertime. And the freedom. For example, on a snowshoe hike or cross-country skiing right in front of the hotel door. But the world-famous Schladming-Dachstein ski region, the 4-mountain ski area and the “Schneebärenland” ski region with Tauplitz, Riesneralm, Planneralm and Loser are also in the immediate vicinity. After an exciting day between the valley and summit stations, the relaxing atmosphere and the secluded location of the 5-star Hotel Schloss Pichlarn is doubly good for body, mind and soul. Come in, feel at home and relax. This is winter at Schloss Pichlarn!
