So where else do you get something like that? A family holiday in Obertauern is cosy, relaxing, and exciting. That is not something any other family holiday in just any other ski resort can claim.

So it’s back down to the hotel again, wasting valuable time that you and your family could have used to actually go skiing. Does this sound familiar? Well, you can breathe a sigh of relief, since such things will definitely NOT happen in Obertauern.
