St. Jakob

The Defereggental is a fabulous walkers' paradise in the summer, a perfect place to leave your daily routine behind and experience an unforgettable holiday in the kingdom of Alpine ibexes and birds of prey.

Summer takes visitors by surprise here with a wide range of activities. A 1,200-km network of routes: from comfortable walks down the valley to themed and educational hikes, from sunny trails leading to Alpine huts high up above to the Großglockner following in the footsteps of early climbers. Skiing, ski-hiking, snowboarding, cross-country skiing, sledging, curling... And this is just the beginning.

Here you can truly practice traditional winter sports, far away from mass tourism and with no wasted time queuing. From the excellent pistes you can enjoy a beautiful view of the peaks towering up to 3,000 metres above sea-level and take in shimmering scenery whilst you slowly ski your way down the snowy slopes.

The cross-country trail passes right by the hotel.
