For a lot of winter guests it’s hard to believe, but anyone who’s experienced a summer vacation in Obertauern is sold on it. Though you couldn’t really speak of untouched nature, everybody is astounded at how green the ski runs get in the summer, and how little there is to see of the ski lifts.
Obertauern in summer: it’s a beautiful high plateau framed by majestic mountains, but they don’t visually crush you as the village itself is already at a fairly high altitude. Beautiful hiking trails are waiting to be explored, some lifts and skiing lodges are open and these are worthwhile destinations for day trips.
If you are allergic to pollen or dust, you’ll find soothing in the air here, or find that you are mostly free of any troubles with your allergy, as the causes to it just aren’t up at this altitude – or at least are very rare.
