Lessach Ski, Snowboard & Summer Holidays

Tucked away in the lovely mountain landscape of the Niedere Tauern, Lessach is a charming farming village, situated within easy reach of 4 ski areas.

Lessach is unspoilt, set amongst breath-taking scenery, and is a great place toget away from it all and enjoy the outdoors at any time of year.

It is located in the Lungau, in the Salzburg region, which can be found in a very remote part of the province, about 100 kilometres south-east of Salzburg City. There are 15 municipalities in the Lungau, of which 14 are situated at altitudes above 1000 metres. Much of the Lungau is very rural, with 60 alpine lakes, numerous mountain cabins (Almen) and scenic mountains.

Along the way, youll find information plaques about the general history, architectural history (wooden granaries, chapels, tithe barn, Thurnschall Castle ruins), mining history, and legends of the Lessach Valley.
