Our brandgut awaits you in Viehhofen amidst the unmistakable Alpine world of Salzburger Land, perfectly located between Saalbach Hinterglemm, Zell am See-Kaprun and Saalfelden Leogang. Or in other words: In the epicentre of Austria’s largest bike region and one of Europe’s largest ski areas. With us you’re in the thick of it, yet far away from the hustle and bustle — the perfect base for your discovery tours and a haven to relax with a drink in hand.

We saved the best for last. The ultimate. The cherry on top. The icing on the cake; or rather: the i-spot: In the brandgut you sit enthroned at more than 1,000 metres above sea level – far above the valley floor. Here the sun kisses you when you wake up in the morning. Holidays with a view. Unmistakable and unique.

Rooms & Apartments

For early birds and late risers

Let yourself go and take the day as it comes. This holiday is yours only. You want to spend every second of your holiday outdoors? Then one of our simple – let’s call it aplne-retro – rooms may be just what’s right for you. Our convenient family rooms provide space not just for a little adventurers, but also for the crew if you head off with your friends. Late risers, night owls and self-caterers may feel most at ease in one of our apartments, because here you’ll find everything you need in your temporary home.

In the mood for good food

Fine dining in the Brandgut

A picture-perfect mountain inn! Our brandgut at more than 1,000 metres altitude overlooks Glemm Valley, and while you enjoy regional classics or modern vegan dishes, both hearty and healthy, there is no shortage of views to admire.


Watching the stars by the camp-fire

Your road trip takes you into the mountains, but you don’t want to stay overnight at just any old camping site on your adventure? We feel you! That’s why we have set up a Roadsurfer-Campingspot at the brandgut for you. Here you’ll sleep in your own rolling home at more than 1,000 metres altitude in the heart of the mountains and right under the stars and can – only if you want to, of course – use the full brandgut infrastructure.

Experiences & Activities

Dopamine, Serotonin, Endorphine … give it to me, baby.

A holiday in the mountains is the best soulfood. Fresh air, image summits, green alpine meadows in summer, snow-covered slopes in winter and rustic alpine huts accompany you on your explorer-tour through the mountains. And it truly doesn’t matter if you prefer challenging or leisurely hikes, dashing down the mountains on the bike or skis with the adrenaline running through your veins, or playfully exploring nature with your family.

Your adventure starts here

Summer & Sunshine

Nature’s Energy Drink

In summer, green alpine meadows and endless space wait for you. You can explore them as you wish on leisurely or sporty hikes. Or you can hop on a bike, which is much quicker and gives you more time to feast afterwards. (E-bikes can be rented directly at the brandgut – € 45 per day) Another option is to explore our brandgut grounds in summer: our own Calisthenics park, yoga platform, barefoot path and hammocks in the forest for hanging out in nature await you.

Your mountain retreat

Leave your own tracks in the snow

We don’t see things in black and white, because at brandgut, diversity is at home. So it’s all the better that you don’t have to make a choice with us. With us, you are right in the middle of the ski and snowboard mecca: our hotel shuttle takes you to the Zell am See Xpress, to the valley station in Viehhofen or to the Schönleitenbahn in Vorderglemm. Not a fan of the gondola and prefer to do something else? No problem: ski tours, torchlight hikes, archery courses, ice skating, tobogganing, winter hikes or simply chilling out in the spa. The combination is unbeatable, we can promise you that.

Leave all your carers behind

Spa & Wellness

Indoors and outdoors alike

In winter, you will find cozy warmth in our sauna after a long day of skiing. The relaxation room also offers the perfect oasis to simply take it easy. Or you can train your immune system and walk barefoot around the house before sweating. Are you in the mood for wellness deluxe? Then you’ve come to the right place, because we also offer massages and treatments. If you visit us in summer, the best way to end the day is with a dip in the cool water
