It is not for nothing that the municipality of Mallnitz with its 765 inhabitants is also known as the "Gateway to the Hohe Tauern". Since the establishment of the largest national park in the Alps at the end of the 20th century, the preservation and careful utilisation of nature has been a top priority here. As a certified mountaineering village, Mallnitz also offers a tourism programme that takes traditions, nature and many activities into account. In concrete terms, this means, for example, that visitors are also easy to reach by public transport.
Just a few kilometres from the village centre is the Ankogelbahn cable car, which takes you up to around 2700 m to the small, fine Ankogel ski area with 25 kilometres of pistes. The crowds of tourists stay on the mighty neighbouring Mölltal Glacier, so it is usually wonderfully quiet on the Ankogel and there is plenty of natural snow. If you want to reward yourself with a beer after skiing, you can do so in the Hannoverhaus, in the Hochalmblick or in the Skicircus!
There are also some beautiful ski tours to discover around Mallnitz. In winter, you can stop off at the Hannoverhaus at 2,565 metres and spend the night.
