Imagine this, you are driving up to Obertauern. The first thing you notice is the location. Obertauern was once described as a ‘snow bowl’, since Obertauern is actually shaped just like a bowl. Surrounded by slopes, to the north and also to the south, you can enjoy a 360 degree view in Obertauern, so you are ‘in the picture’ and filled with anticipation for the forthcoming days, jam-packed with snow, skiing, partying, relaxation, wellness and everything that your heart craves.
Obertauern - Variety is the clincher
Obertauern has it all. For the most part all at once, yet in peaceful coexistence. Anyone who is looking for relaxation and comfort will find this and won’t be disturbed any partying in Obertauern, since the ‘Party mile’ is concentrated in very specific areas, where party-animals will have fun. Diversity and variety are much more than mere catchwords in Obertauern. Another advantage, perhaps THE advantage in Obertauern is simply apparent. Whereas elsewhere you still have to go grass skiing, which, as is generally accepted, has never really been accepted as a sport, during your holiday in Obertauern you’ll be collecting your skis from the ski store and racing down the pistes enjoying that fantastic feeling of the snow beneath your skis.

The ‘Schneeforscher’ are a circle of friends based around Franz Beckenbauer, Uwe Seeler, Erich Ribbeck and Werner Zimmer, which founded the ‘Schneeforscher Obertauern e.V.’ club more than 25 years ago. Since this time this club has been responsible for getting the lifts and cable cars up and running and clearing the pistes. It then all gets going from there every year, since it is not just the ski pistes which open, the whole realm of possibility around Obertauern which you are able to make use of during your winter holiday opens up.
