This quaint, family favourite resort has bundles of character and is nestled between Obertauern, the Hohe Tauern and the Nockberge mountains in the heart of Austria. The village is absolutely overflowing with traditional Austrian charm – the classic buildings are made of authentic wood and stone and you’ll notice waiters dressed in lederhosen and regular markets selling local delicacies such as apple strudel and the local après ski drink of choice, Jägertee (made with strong rum, hot black tea and various...
Katschberg’s family motto is “introduce your children to winter sports and start a lifelong love” and this is certainly a super place to do so. The resort prides itself on its family friendly nature and focuses a lot of attention on the youngsters. There’s a dedicated children’s area called Katschi’s Kids’ World with child-only lifts and runs so little ones can learn in a peaceful environment. Beginners have a number of gentle blues very near the village - we like piste 2 which is nice and wide and winds ...
Things are relatively quiet and low-key here and après ski is reasonably relaxed. Wherever you are you won't be far from a mountain restaurant – fill those hungry stomachs in one of 14 ski huts - try the spare ribs at Pizzeria Stamperl, Carinthian specialities at the rustic Gamskogelhutte with its cosy fireplace or Salzburgerland dishes at the Schneeflockerl such as delicious Speckknödel (dumplings with pieces of bacon). The most popular après ski destination is Wilderer Alm which you’ll find directly bes...

"Fantastic food, great family hotel"

George Bradley, Rotherham
4/ out of 5
The hotel is big and has an older part to it as well as a newer part: if you can, try and be sure you get a room in the newer part as the rooms in the old section weren’t brilliant. We ended up having some of the family in one part and the rest in the other, I was alright because I was in the new part where the rooms were really nice and modern, but in the older bit, the rooms were quite cold and dated (still clean though). The rest of the hotel – reception, foyer etc is big, spacious and modern. There’s lots of glass so you have lots of nice outlook. There’s even a ski hire shop in the hotel (although Katschberg is such a tiny place that if it wasn’t in the hotel, it would only ever be a few metres away!). The food was fantastic – we had all inclusive and the hotel is in the perfect position to ski down straight into the boot room for the buffet lunch. They had good facilities for kids and there were lots of other families staying there besides ours. They did have childcare but we didn’t use it (there’s a crèche and play area) and the menu was great for children – the kids were loving it. The only drawback for families/beginners: the blue slope outside the hotel is the one everyone uses to get down and they have lessons there as well, so it gets really busy (I actually thought to the point of being too dangerous). Your only other options are red runs, so if you're a novice, the ski runs going back to the hotel aren’t suitable.
