Ferienhaus Gamsjäger is situated close to Mariazell, one of the most important pilgrimage towns in Europe. You can reach the 1350m high Bürgeralpe with a cable car from the centre of Mariazell. In winter usually lots of snow provide ideal conditions for skiing at the Bürgeralpe and the nearby Gemeindealpe. The Ötscher, the magnificent Ötschergräben and the 2300m high Hochschwab provide for walking, hiking and mountaineering. The clear Erlaufsee- a beautiful mountain lake - is nearby. It is ideal for a refreshing swim on a hot summer day. There is also a diving centre. A cycle trail leads 80km to the Danube. You find a variety of mountain bike trails around the town. By car you easily reach the Salza valley - a centre for white-water canyoning and rafting. During the summer open air concerts and laser shows are regularly performed on the Bürgeralpe.

In a 5 minutes walk you reach the station of the cable car to the Bürgeralpe. About 1350m high it offers 5 lifts and a variety of slopes that provide ideal skiing conditions particularly for families. If you don't want to queue at lifts and prefer uncrowded slopes at acceptable prices you are in the right place! From the centre square a ski bus takes you to the 1669m high Gemeindealpe which also offers a variety of lifts and slopes in all degrees of difficulty.
