Drawing wintersports enthusiasts to the Vögelsberg, a recreational area for the nearby town of Wattens at approx. 800m above sea-level, are the snow-assured slopes, plenty of sun, fresh air and traditional hospitality.
At the entrance to the illuminated toboggan runs (freshly-groomed every day) – right by Gasthaus Vögelsberg - is a mini-lift system and then straight pistes. All thanks to modern, high-pressure snow-making machinery.
The family-friendly Vögelsberg system with toboggan run, cable lift for beginners and drag-lift for advanced skiers is the ideal spot for spur-of-the-moment skiing and when you don't want a long journey.
Family-friendly prices are the trademark of the cafés and restaurants in the region. Gasthaus Vögelsberg, virtually in the middle of the piste and at the entrance to the toboggan run, serves good, tasty, home-style cooking in a cosy atmosphere and at prices not that different to what they were 10 years ago.
Address: Halbeisfeld 9 in 6112 Wattens - Vögelsberg
