Grünau im Almtal, an idyllic SUMMER & WINTER holiday resort in the foothills of the Totes Gebirge mountain range - FAR AWAY from noisy traffic routes and tourist centers, is conveniently embedded in the scenic East of the SALZKAMMERGUT Region.
Grünau im Almtal, member of the "Bergsteigerdörfer" initiative has many superlatives: largest community of Upper Austria with a little over 230 km2 (the Principality of Liechtenstein has ca. 160 km2) and the province’s second highest mountain after the "Dachstein Mountain Range", the “Große Priel” with its 2515 m is also located here.
Many people say that the nature reserves lake Almsee and the lakes Ödseen are the most beautiful places on earth and we will not disagree. We want to add that the majestic mountain range Totes Gebirge with the “Almtaler Sonnenuhr”, above the lake Almsee, which is the natural southern border of the valley is one of the largest.
