Information on the ski resort Flachau

Snow space Flachau is part of the Ski amadé ski region and is around 60 kilometres from Salzburg. Flachau is a particularly popular ski area for families. Young and old alike can let off some steam across 150 hectares of varied terrain. The ski area has three different lift stations in the valley, distributing the volume of people effectively on busy days.

Beginners will find plenty of practice lifts close to the valley stations, such as the piggyjet and dinojet. There are also lots of runs within the ski area itself which are easy for beginners to circumnavigate, such as starjet 2 and spacejet 3. However, the ski area is dominated by numerous red-marked groomers which are perfect for carving to your heart’s content.

If you want to put your abilities to the test, you can even try your hand at the World Cup course and measure yourself against the clock. With a little luck, you might even see some real professionals training here, as Flachau is not only home to ski superstar Hermann Maier, but also the training centre for Austrian ski racers.

On Mountain Dining

The choice for hungry skiers is wide

From cosy Alpine lodges to modern mountain restaurants, Flachau just about has it all. Lisa Alm, right next to the spacejet 2 run, combines a romantic lodge atmosphere with stylish lounge elements. If you like it extravagant and unusual, then this is the place for you. One truly cosy lodge is the Pfeiffei Alm next to starjet 1. And if you’re only looking for a quick break, look no further than Schonzeit or Purzelbaum Alm.

Must-ski Runs

For many, the number one highlight in Flachau is the Hermann Maier World Cup Course.

Activities

And there is plenty to do besides skiing in Flachau. There are no less than five sled runs of varying lengths here, as well as an Alpine Coaster, the “Lucky Flitzer”, which offers a white-knuckle ride with five huge loops and two rollers. And it goes without saying that the region also offers plenty of classic winter activities like winter hikes, horse-drawn sleighs and even curling. If you want to try something completely new, then opt for a Segway or snow zorbing. And after all that action in the cold snow, there can be no better place to unwind than in Therme amadé.

Après Ski Flachau

Flachau is the party centre of the Ski amadé region. From cocktail lounges to discos with hot beats and the classical umbrella bars – the town has it all. The most popular spots include the Dampfkessel at the valley station of spacejet I, the Fliegenpilz umbrella bar at the achterjet base station and Zum Zottl at the starjet valley station. The logical next steps in town are Ema’s Pub, Yeti’s Partyhouse and Almrausch.

Fine Dining and Restaurants

And what would a ski break be without great food? Luckily you don’t have to go far to find delicious dishes in Flachau, with Restaurant Possruck and Berggasthof Sattelbauer highly recommended. Expect lovingly prepared, traditional Austrian fare at both. If you’d prefer Mediterranean delights, La Luma would be an excellent choice. Here, you can accompany your food with a nice tipple from the wine menu.

Getting here

Flachau is easy to reach via the Tauernautobahn A 10. Take exit 66 Flachau and follow the signs to one of the three valley stations.
