Ausseerland - the geographic heart of Austria!
The picturesque Ausseerland is divided into four regions. Altaussee lies at between 730 and 910 metres above sea level. Here the Blaa Alm cross-country skiing trail is the main attraction. 13 kilometres of classic and skating-style cross-country skiing await you. And the town cross-country skiing trail on the Fischerer Feldern is floodlit (1 km).
Bad Aussee, just next to it at 659 - 700 metres above sea level, offers a "Panoramaloipe" ("Panoramic Trail") (16 km), a "Sonnenloipe" ("Sun Trail") and, at the same time, beautiful distant views of the Dachstein and the Loser.
Bad Mitterndorf and Pichl-Kainisch are the cross-country skiing centres in the moorland between Ödensee, Bad Mitterndorf and Kulm, the world's largest natural ski jump. The sports circuit is 86 km long, the skating-style circuit 70 km.
And finally: The Tauplitz and the Tauplitzalm. Casual cross-country skiers have a whole range to choose from in the town and look over to Grimming from the sunny plateau. The "Höhenloipe" ("Peak Trail"), on the other hand, has a very good guarantee of snow and is the training centre for world and Olympic champions.
A total of 219 km of cross-country skiing trails await you in Ausseerland.
