Salzkammergut hiking, ski and more!

… where summer has so many facets

The Vitalhotel Gosau is not only called Vitalhotel, it is an ideal place to get body and soul going. In summer, over 300 signposted hiking trails lure you out to meadows and alpine pastures, to mountain peaks, waterfalls and mountain lakes. We recommend to customers what to do in Gosau according to the season. Excellent via ferratas for every level at the Gosau reservoir and numerous mountain bike trails inspire mountain lovers. E-bikes can be rented directly at the hotel. An excursion to the famous Gosau grindstone quarries or to the primeval forest will be enjoyed by the whole family. The proximity to the UNESCO World Heritage Site Hallstatt and the Cultural Capital 2024 Bad Ischl provide cultural variety in the holiday programme. The festival city of Salzburg is within easy reach. Four courses within a radius of 50 kilometres await golfers. 

… and winter is romantic

In winter it is cosy and comfortable at the Vitalhotel Gosau. Outside, the snowy landscape becomes an active area. Directly behind the hotel, cross-country skiers enter the 40-kilometre-long cross-country ski trail. Two cable cars lead to the winter sports and ski touring paradise Dachstein West. Glide down 160 kilometres of superbly groomed pistes between Salzburg and Upper Austria, with the fantastic Dachstein panorama always in view. Snowshoe hikers and tourers experience unforgettable winter landscapes. Families spend carefree winter days in the children's ski areas and on the Gaudi slopes. The ski bus from the hotel to the Dachstein West ski region is free of charge.

… in a small village with great hospitality.

After a day of many valuable holiday experiences, the Vitalhotel Gosau envelops its guests in a feeling of well-being: switch off in the sauna, in the infrared cabins or in the swimming grotto. Relax in one of the water beds in the relaxation room, enjoy the Gosau cuisine. Review the day with an excellent glass of wine from the hotel's own wine cellar. All year round, the packages of the Vitalhotel Gosau meet the taste of active holidaymakers, mountain lovers, families and romantics.
