Sonnleitn – Green alpine pastures and white winters

“In the winter months, the 6.5km2-large Weissensee turns into Europe's largest permanently frozen and groomed ice surface – a unique ice experience that you shouldn't miss. The up to 40cm thick ice sheet is used by sleighs and winter hikers, and with its circular skating rinks, curling tracks, ice hockey courts and a 400-metre speed skating rink it is also a paradise for skaters.”

Susanne Freiberger, Resort Manager Sonnleitn

Snow-covered forests, sun-drenched alpine pastures, crystal-clear mountain lakes and idyllic hiking trails: This is what holidays at the Hapimag Resort Sonnleitn are all about. Whether it be spring, summer, autumn or winter – the resort is always in season. The holiday apartments are spread out among several traditional farmhouses and give a sense of life on mountain pastures. There is a Mini & Maxi Club for the children.

Skiing holidays somewhere else for a change? If that's what you're looking for, the Austrian resort of Sonnleitn is the right address for you. The extensive Sonnalpe-Nassfeld ski area is right on the doorstep of the Hapimag Resort Sonnleitn. Snow is guaranteed at the largest and most modern skiing area of Carinthia. Whether you like cross-country or downhill, on skis or on a snowboard: Sonnleitn is a paradise. Ice skating or ice hockey on the frozen Lake Weissensee add further variety to your holiday. Or perhaps a romantic snowshoe walk through snow-covered forests. When you return, enjoy a glass of mulled wine to warm you up at the in-house snow bar. If the snow has already melted, hike over the narrow mountain paths, breathe in the clear mountain air and get rid of unnecessary burdens. Discover the intense blue shimmer of the blossoming Carinthian Wulfenia flower at the side of the path. Carinthia is in season all year round. In spring, when the mountain pastures blossom with new life, go on an excursion to Lake Wörth – following in the footsteps of German singer Roy Black. In summer, when it really starts to get hot, you can cool off at nearby Lake Pressegg. Or stroll through the wonderful world of mountains from alpine pasture to alpine pasture, tasting the home-made cheese and bacon along the way. Enjoy long walks and adventurous climbing tours in the autumn, when the sun bathes the Austrian Alps in golden light. And take a detour to Italy in between – the border is only five kilometres away. Golfers will also find what they are looking for: In the midst of one of the most beautiful natural landscapes of Carinthia - Gailtal - is a generously designed golf course. The holiday apartments are particularly adapted to the requirements of active families. The Hapimag Resort Sonnleitn consists of over 100 holiday apartments, spread out across 21 farmhouses in the Carinthian style. It has an indoor pool with counter-current system and now also a Mini & Maxi Club. The traditional and charming 'Almstüberl' restaurant offers regional specialities such as Rippalan (spare ribs) or Kasnudln (cheese pasta) in the summer, as well as a farmers’ market once a week. In the winter, steak evenings and 'Ripperlessen' pork rib meals are organised. The snow bar is an ideal location for sociable après-ski activities in winter. On Fridays and Saturdays, a breakfast buffet is available in the Almstüberl. Sonnleitn offers superlative holidays in every season.
