The Arthurhaus on the Hochkönig in winter
At the foot of the Mandlwand, at 1,502 m above sea level, is the Arthurhaus am Hochkönig, one of the most popular excursion destinations in the region and at the same time the perfect starting and finishing point for many a sporting challenge. In the warm season, countless hikers and mountain bikers cavort here to explore the diverse paths. But even in winter it is by no means boring here. Extensive ski tours, magical snowshoe hikes and even small alpine experiences ensure excitement.
The Arthurhaus ski area
The Arthurhaus is located in the middle of the large ski region on the Hochkönig and is great to experience. In fact, it also has a small ski area in the ski area, if you will, because five ski lifts and a cross-country ski run clear the way for Nordic and Alpine fun. Families in particular love the small but fine winter sports area, as it offers the perfect infrastructure for the youngsters to dare to take their first turns on the boards that are the skiing world.
Ski tour at the Arthurhaus am Hochkönig
The ascent with an impressive 1,550 meters in altitude is not quite as family-friendly. The section to the Kleiner Geißnase is particularly steep, followed by various Karpassages. Short, steep slopes, wide hollows and small breaks lead up to the summit with the Matrashaus. Three different variants invite you to varied descents, with short counter climbs to be mastered depending on the route chosen.
Through nature on snowshoes
At the golden end, almost magical snowshoeing leads from the Arthurhaus to the Hochkeil through the snow-covered winter landscape of the summit of feelings. The path is well signposted and takes about an hour ascent with an altitude of 285 meters. A couple of exciting deep snow sections pose small challenges. The panorama on the Hochkeil is great for that.
The Arthurhaus am Hochkönig is just one of the many attractions on your next winter holiday at the Hotel Sonnhof. The ideal location in Mühlbach offers quick access to the lifts, trails and slopes in the region. We are happy to receive your non-binding inquiry !
