Yet, we still offer all those conveniences you expect from any modern vacation community. After a day filled with physical activity, you can let your soul run free as you indulge yourself in our full range of wellness amenities. A source of peace and renewed energy for mind, body and soul. Discover the ultimate in relaxation during your first Lungau Hay Bath.

Of course, it doesn’t matter whether you visit us here in winter or in summer – your vacation dreams are bound to come true. In summer, St. Michael is an excellent base from which to set out on an array of hikes and tours of the mountain peaks. The Valley Bus provides you with ready access to our side valleys and country inns. But St. Michael isn’t just a paradise for hikers – it’s also perfect for cyclists. Whether you’re here to participate in Bike Training Weeks with Rudi Mitteregger, or to enjoy the “Tour de Mur”, mountainbiking or the Samsonman Bike Marathon World Championships – there’s something for every cyclist out there. If you love being on or around horses, you’ll be in bliss as you head out on horseback or explore the countryside on a horse-drawn carriage ride. Children will hardly be able to contain themselves at the open-air pool and mini-golf course. As part of our summer vacation program, we offer daily events especially for children. A beautiful 18-hole tournament course, along with a 9-hole practice course and 280-metre driving range, offer every golfer, whether just starting out or a budding pro, a superb golfing adventure! Kids and teens will enjoy taking their inline-skating skills along the banks of the Mur, or to the Fun Park on the Katschberg. Those yearning for adventure have their choice of rafting, river expeditions, paragliding or hang gliding. Tennis fans can take advantage of four outdoor sand courts and an indoor tennis facility. And our crystal-clear lakes and streams are a real challenge for anglers.
In winter, St. Michael offers its guests family-friendly ski slopes featuring all degrees of difficulty - and without having to spend forever waiting in line. All of this, surrounded by winter landscapes and Alpine peaks blanketed deep in snow, and crisp, clear mountain air in your lungs. Nestled between the Grosseck-Speiereck and Katschberg-Aineck ski areas, you have the opportunity to enjoy winter sports in every form, including snowboarding, ice skating, ice stick (Alpine curling) and tobogganing. Tremendous cross-country ski trails begin right here. And then, wind down your unforgettable, adventure-filled winter’s day, with convivial good times at a mountain inn or a romantic horse-drawn sleigh ride. St. Michael’s Parish Church, the Filial Church of St. Martin, and St. Egid, provide an enriching cultural interlude whatever the time of year.
