a place to feel totally at ease as you forge your plans - for a perfect summer’s day

Especially in summer, the village of Mauterndorf – population around 2,000 – is particularly beautiful: freshly mown meadows, grazing cows, jaw-dropping peaks, kilometers-long bike paths, even medieval tournaments at Mauterndorf Castle. And YOU can be in the midst of it all!

Hiking in the Biosphere Reserve

Summiteers, this is for you!

The glistening mountains which surround the Rest Apartments & Suites are just waiting to be explored. Numerous mountain huts would simply love to have you stop by, take a break, and reenergize with the help of their delicious regional specialties. Your tummy, but also your tired legs will definitely thank you for it! Because they will be constantly on the go if you do indeed decide to head into the beautiful mountains of the Lungau region. That said, if ever you prefer a more laid-back excursion and decide to leave your hiking boots “parked” back here at the Hackenschmiede, the mountain lifts of the Lungau are there to assist, carrying you effortlessly to higher elevations.

Powering through the countryside by bicycle

You have consumed an energizing breakfast, but you are a little weary of those hiking boots?

Whether you prefer to log vertical gains on an E-bike or mountain bike, or clock kilometer-upon-kilometer on a road bike, here with us you can do both, and more! For families, too, you will discover an array of leisurely tours through the heart of Lungau. Armed with maps for cleverly designed bike tours, you will be ready to set out – on an incredible adventure! If your leg muscles begin to burn after a few kilometers, not to worry. There are plenty of icy-cold mountain streams along the way where you can cool them off, along with opportunities to enjoy the refreshment of a fruity ice cream.
