Maria Alm

You will find the picturesque village of Maria Alm in a beautiful location in Austria. The village is a little further from the main highway, however, this makes it a perfect destination for those whom enjoy a more quiet and spacious environment. The village is nestled in the green and lush scenery, at the foot of the Steinernes Lake and the impressive mountain chain on the boarder of Germany. The church with its pointed tower set against the breath-taking background of rising white mountains is a defining feature of the lively village.

Maria Alm is located at an altitude of 800 meters in a tranquil valley that sees no passing traffic. There are various sites of interest and nightlife options in and around the village. There is an indoor swimming pool, a sauna and a fitness centre where you can keep up your training and relax. You can also enjoy an excellent lunch or dinner at bargain prices in the restaurants here. You may also decide to take a romantic sleigh tour during the day or set out on a refreshing hike through the stunning landscape. In the evening you can visit some of the lively bars and nightclubs or you can stay on the pistes instead and descend via luge on the flood-lit luge tracks! Maria Alm is perfect for families with young children.

Skiing in Maria Alm

Maria Alm is part of the ski region Ski Amadé. Behind the church, four lifts depart and give you access to various beginner runs. The ski area of which Maria Alm is part of, offers approximately 120Km of connected slopes with very well prepared slopes, 30km of cross-country trails, floodlit toboggan runs. From Maria Alm you can take a ski bus to Mühlbach. If you would like to visit other ski areas such as Flachau or Schladming, you will need your car. Unfortunately there are no ski bus connections outside of Maria Alm and Mühlbach.
