Winter and spring in the Pinzgau mountains are the best seasons for recreation. The powdered snow softens every loud noise, the landscape is cloaked in white and people delight in the calm. A contemplative advent market or a cheerful Easter market go beautifully with the calm surroundings.
Take a winter hike over beautifully prepared and signposted winter hiking paths or go cross-country or over an alpine pasture in your snow shoes. You can also take a horse-drawn sleigh ride through the winter wonderland of the Zell basin.
Go cross-country skiing, ice skating, snow tubing, tobogganing, riding, on a skiing tour - and do it all at your own pace.
Alternatively, you can experience sport and parties in Piesendorf and the surrounding region. Two major ski areas - Schmittenhöhe in Zell am See and the Kitzsteinhorn glacier ski area in Kaprun - are a brief 10 minutes' drive away from your holiday home. Both ski areas have plenty of ski lodges and umbrella bars for breaks or a little après-ski! There's always something going on in this region. Whether it be festivals or parties, restaurants, cafés or bars - you'll find it the perfect location for whatever you want!
For culture vultures, the region offers a rich array of options! Whether it be concerts, theatres, museums, exhibitions, traditional festivals or local events - there's something going on all year round!
If, after an eventful day, you want to relax, simply head for the Tauern Spa thermal baths in Kaprun and enjoy one of its 10 saunas and steam baths or swim in one of its 12 indoor and outdoor pools.
Is there such a thing as "the perfect skiing holiday"? Of course there is! Come to the Maiskogelblick Holiday Apartment in Piesendorf. From the small and inexpensive ski area for beginners and children to Austria's largest ski area with more than 270 kilometres of piste, you'll find everything in the Salzburg Pinzgau!
Whether you want to travel on a prepared piste or on open terrain, the choice is yours - there are options in the snow parks and matching free-ride routes in both ski areas!
And what about the "wild ones"? Even in the autumn, the Glacier Park on the glacier plateau sees the first table football, rails and boxes being shredded. By the start of May, the Easy Park and Central Park are offering varied setups for beginners, experts and pros. The mighty super-pipe, with walls over six metres high, draws international top athletes year after year to the Kitzsteinhorn in Kaprun.
