Christmas Time in the Winter Wonderland
At Christmas time the Chalets Austria, in the Almdorf-Sankt Johann im Pongau pour on a special charm.In our 11 luxurious Chalets you can daily enjoy the lovingly prepared mountain breakfast. If you wish, we are happy to serve it in your own Chalet. It can be enjoyed in combination with the view of Salzburg’s mountain backdrop.
After breakfast you can follow on with your workout in the in-house gym. It provides the modern equipment of Technogym and the vast view of the valley. Starting the day like this you are mentally and physically prepared to visit the diverse events that only take place at Christmas time and around New Year.
When you return to the Chalet Austria Almdorf in the evening, you can treat yourself in your private SPA area, using your Chalet’s sauna and outdoor whirlpool or you can get a massage. Finally you could let the day end over a good glass of wine, sitting in front of the fire place in which the firewood crackles cosily. Our exclusive resort is located above the village of Alpendorf, so that in a clear night you can see the stars and the glittering lights of Sankt Johann through the big window.
In our Chalets you can enjoy the woody warmth of our cosy Alpine Cabins combined with the quiet elegance of an exclusive resort. Relaxation starts when waking up: In an infinity bed, that melts together with the mountains in your courtyard, everyday life retreats into the far distance.

After a good meal, you are invited to enjoy the beautiful view. Your fireplace is well-stocked with enough wood to enjoy long evenings.
