Family holiday at Hotel Alpengasthof Hochegger in Carinthia

Hochegger warmly welcomes you and will take you on an unforgettable family adventure. In winter you can get on the chairlift next to the hotel and conquer the ski slopes. In summer the same lift takes you to your hiking paradise. In the family alpine summer from July to mid-September, the family hotel offers an additional summer programme with archery, horse riding, fishing on the alpine pasture and much more, for the whole family. Your children will love it!

These and other highlights await you at Hotel Alpengasthof Hochegger:

  • E-mountain bikes for hire
  • Sports field for playing football, basketball and hockey
  • Rock climbing

Hiker’s paradise in Lavanttal

The extensive and well-signposted network of hiking trails is right on the hotel doorstep. Explore the valley up close on one of the guided hikes that take place several times a week and learn exciting facts about the region’s flora and fauna. It’s well known that fresh air and exercise make you hungry: no problem, as traditional delicacies are already waiting for you at the rustic alpine huts. With your energy levels topped up, you then head back to the hotel.

In your rooms you will find a hiking guide with various tour suggestions, and you can also borrow backpacks and hiking poles free of charge from the family hotel.

Winter sports at Klippitztörl

Hop on the chairlift right in front of the hotel and your winter sports adventure can begin! You can conveniently hire your winter sports equipment from Jöbstl ski hire, which is located right by the hotel. The children’s ski centre and snow sports school are also right by the hotel. Beginners can learn their first turns and advanced skiers can improve their technique here.

  • 6 lifts – no enclosed gondola lifts
  • 12 downhill runs in all levels of difficulty
  • 9 cosy places to stop to eat far away from crowds and the hustle and bustle

The best way to discover the winter wonderland of Klippitztörl is on a snowshoe hike on one of the six designated routes. On your own or on a guided tour, let yourself be inspired by the region’s beauty, off-piste, past snow-covered forests and with a breathtaking view.

Leisure activities

The unique mountain landscape offers a wide range of leisure activities both in summer with hiking or e-bike tours and in winter. Your kids can learn with the ski school right on the slope next door or you can take on one of the 12 downhill runs. 

In summer, many activities in the immediate vicinity lure you outside, such as the adventure climbing course or the most spectacular summer toboggan run in Carinthia. Ride up comfortably on the chairlift and enjoy the magnificent scenery. Once you’ve reached the summit, you can already see the impressive Klippitz mountain lake – the ideal place to take a short break and simply enjoy the magnificent view. Afterwards, the summer toboggan run takes you down the mountain at up to 40 km/h back to the hotel.

Or spend a day on the adventure climbing course. Between the via ferrata, rocks, trees, suspension bridges and a rope slide, your climbing skills are definitely called for. Naturally always completely safely. For little adventurers, there’s a separate kiddy climbing park for age five
or more.
