A holiday at the foot of Salzburg’s mountains

Welcome to the Hotel Gasthof Bachschmied

With the ski lift right on the hotel doorstep you are right in the thick of the action, in one of the loveliest family ski areas in Austria - the Hochkönig ski area in Maria Alm.
After a hearty breakfast in the Hotel Bachschmied your day of skiing can start straight away – just head out of the hotel and right on to the ski lift. Head up on the state-of-the-art 6-seater chair lift or on the 8-seater gondola and in the morning be the first to leave tracks on 120 kilometres of very well-tended pistes.
This makes for a perfect day of skiing – have we planted a seed?

Summer too holds many charms in store on the Hochkönig, the fantastic mountainous landscape in the heart of the Austrian Alps provides countless opportunities for your holiday. From tranquil and restorative to exciting and action-packed – it’s all here in the summer, in Maria Alm. Our hotel is located right on the Hochkönig road, a dream motor biking route which provides plenty of twists and turns along with fantastic panoramic views.

The Hochkönig Card is available in summer and winter alike for you as a guest in the Hotel Bachschmied – make the most of the many advantages on offer!

We look forward to welcoming you!
