Holidays in Steinhaus

From Steinhaus, in summer and in winter, you can get to Klausberg by cableway. Or as well deep into history when visiting the Museum Kornkasten. In all cases, Steinhaus does not only have many stone houses, but also a very special well-being ambiance.

Steinhaus is situated at 1,054 m of altitude and is the main village of Ahrntal municipality. The large historical building in the centre tell about the time, when Steinhaus was the administrative seat of the mine in Prettau.

Today, the village is a popular holiday destination for skiers, mountaineers and tranquillity seekers. Here, you can spend unforgettable days in the ski area Klausberg or during extensive hikers in the Durreck Group and Zillertal Alps – and all of this accompanied by the hearty hospitality of the local residents.

In addition to easy hikes, such as the one to Lake Klaussee, there are challenging mountain tours too, requiring excellent stamina and experience.
