Summer Holidays in Donnersbachwald: where nature takes center stage

Donnersbachwald offers countless hiking- & mountain bike trails alongside crystal-clear alpine streams, lakes and dark-red fields of rhododendron, rising to tranquil elevations as high as 3,375 m above sea level.

A paradise for walkers, hikers, nature lovers and all fans of outdoor sports. Tennis courts, a swimming lake with recreation area, paragliding and carriage rides all add to the opportunities that await you. In addition, in the evening there is an asphalt "ice stock" track available for our guests in our idyllic garden.

Tip: our Gasthof Pension Appartements  "Zur Gams" is located directly along the long-distance hiking trail "02 Zentralalpenweg".

Hiking in the hills with your whole family

Be sure to take a refreshment break at one of the many huts along the way, such as the Lärchkaralm, Stalla Alm, Finsterkaralm or Mörsbachalm, where the fresh milk and hill-farm specialties taste especially good.
During guided hikes led by your hosts, we will show you some of the most beautiful places in the Donnersbacher Tauern.

Nature Experiences for Big & Small

Donnersbachwald is certain to enchant you, too, with its wealth of fauna and flora.

Areas of rich mineral deposits are certain to awaken your inner "treasure hunter" - if you are in the mood, you can also join a special "Garnet Expedition" and see if it's your day to strike it rich.

  • Our Tip: For a special experience, how about setting out on a mushroom hunt? For many, there's nothing more wonderful than coming across wild-growing chanterelles or porcinis, which can later be cooked up back here at the "Zur Gams". Pure nature - you've gotta love it!
