Our highlights

"Hot town – summer in the city, holiday on your balcony" – not with us! A summer holiday at 4* Family Hotel Cristallo means "recreation twice over: delightful, allergen-free mountain air and refreshing dips in the pool are a welcome change to the sticky air and overcrowded beaches so often encountered in our day and age.

However, the stress-free environment does not equate to "boring": Katschberg Mountain offers plenty of entertainment for the entire family even during the warmer season of the year. Whether on Katschi's Gold Ride, at the world's largest Alpine high rope course or the hotel's own activity week – just to name a few of the programme highlights. 

It doesn't become any less colourful when autumn nears: at the HoamArt-Herbst funfair, Katschberg natives make customs and folk culture in the border region between Carinthia and Salzburg come alive. Whether during Samson Parade or when the animals are driven down into the valley from Pony Meadow or during alphorn player meets – the original zest for life can be felt everywhere. Let it shine through you too!
