Mountain Inn Mittereggalm at Hochkoenig
YOUR AUSTRIAN MOUNTAIN RETREAT
“Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn.” ― John Muir
Join us for a warm and genuine experience at mountain inn Mittereggalm. We are situated 1400m above sea level on a mountain plateau road with a dramatic view of the High King Mountains (Hochkoenig). Mittereggalm has been serving guests traditional Austrian hospitality for 40 years as a small, locally run family enterprise. Energize your body and mind through the healing power of nature, whether through sport and fitness or simply taking in the elements of our quiet location. We are surrounded by nature; however, we are only a few minutes from the nearest lift by ski bus.
TRADITION AND ENJOYMENT
In our mountain hotel at Hochkoenig, make yourself comfortable in one of seven Alpine style double rooms with shower/toilet, flatscreen TV and wifi. Our family room/dormitory is not only popular with youth and can accommodate four to six mountain friends.
At Mittereggalm, you will find comfortable furnishings, Austrian tradition, and the neighbouring Hochkoenig mountain range. Here there is always a place for families, travellers, mountain enthusiasts, and small adventurers.
Start your mountain retreat days with Salzburg milk and fresh bakery rolls as part of a typical Austrian breakfast buffet. In our restaurant you can end your ski day with homemade pies and coffee. In the evening we serve a three course dinner with local (when possible) and fresh ingredients prepared by the host, also our head chef, with lots of love.
Spareribs from the woodstove, Austrian Trout, oven pancake (Kaiserschmarrn) buffet...Don’t worry you will burn it off on the mountain!
Please advise us in advance of special dietary requirements and we will do our best to accommodate you.
Our very own groomed Ski trail will bring you safe back to the Mittereggalm mountain inn. Half way down the Kings Cab run you’ll find the turnoff marked with a sign for Berggasthof Mittereggalm. To get to the nearest lifts you have the option of the free ski bus which stops outside the door or skiing/pushing on the groomed trail towards either Mühlbach or Dienten. Not only are we an affordable ski in, our quiet location with plenty of outdoor space make us an ideal winter vacation destination in Austria. Here you can also cross country ski, snowshoe, ski tour, splitboard, and toboggan.
Come experience the gorgeous alpine summer. The forest and meadows are full of life and you can enjoy cooler breezes and fantastic views from the many hiking trails. The Salzburg Almenweg (summer farm way) hiking trail passes by our mountain inn. You can hike to the top of Hochkoenig with 1700 height meters. Many climbers come for the well-known Koenig’s Jodler, which starts outside our door. The Koenig’s Jodler is one of the longest climbs (via Ferrata) of the Alps. Other adventures include single trail mountain biking, Toni’s Almspielplatz (large children’s playground on the mountain), or herb wandering.
We would be pleased to make you an offer. The mountain is calling!
