A UNIQUE PLACE OF POWER
The biggest town close to Die Tauplitz is Bad Mitterndorf, where you will find everything you need for a good lifestyle. Extending out in all directions is an open, sunny valley, also where Tauplitz village lies – a charming community by the valley lift station for our ski area.

This small alpine village is car-free in winter and radiates an energy all its own. The moment you arrive up there, you immediately sense that the clocks here tick a little differently – more attentively, in rhythm with nature itself.
