Rent a comfortable chalet and explore Petzen and the surrounding area. Petzen is located in the south-eastern part of the Carinthia region (in the Karawanken mountain range) and is the southernmost ski resort in Austria. Petzen is known for its guaranteed snow and family-friendly ski resort. It might be small, but it has something to offer skiers and snowboarders of all levels and ages. Perfect for families! It also happens to be the home base of World Cup star Rainer Schönfelder. A modern gondola takes you from the base lodge to the Siebenhütten mountain lodge at an altitude of 1708 metres, from where you can continue upwards on a lift to an altitude of 1900 metres. There is a total of 26 km of slopes, 4 ski tows, 1 gondola and modern snowmaking equipment. Kids can take part in the ?Petzi`s Kinderland? ski school, which offers a children?s lift, magic carpet, tubing track, practice area, slalom track and playground. For the perfect family holiday, rent your own chalet!
There are plenty of different winter activities to enjoy in the area apart from skiing and snowboarding to ensure fun in the snow! Go on a winter hike or a romantic horse sleigh ride, try ice skating (with ice disco) on one of the frozen lakes or toboggan down a 1.7 km long lighted toboggan run. Cross-country skiers can enjoy well-groomed tracks in the surrounding area. If you are looking for a change for the day, there are 4 other ski resorts within a 45-minute drive at Klippitztörl, Weinebene, Koralpe and Hebalm, which together offer 90 km of slopes. In other words, there is plenty to explore from the comfort of one of our holiday homes or chalets!
