Obdach - Impression #1 Obdach - Impression #1


The municipality of Obdach lies harmoniously in the valley of the Granitzenbach north of the Obdacher Sattel, the transition of our Murtal valley into the Lavanttal valley. To the west, the municipality extends to the Seetaler Alps with the region's summit king, the Zirbitz. Here lies a wonderful hiking area with widely drawn paths and a magnificent view from the summit.

About the region

The Zirbitzkogel watches over the Murtal almost like a sovereign. Spectacular impressions from the summit of the king of the Zirbenland lure you to the next mountain hike. The ascent leads through closed spruce forests, which are then replaced by larch and stone pine. Hike past crystal-clear lakes and roam through a piece of untouched nature where, with luck, you may also see marmots or chamois. Early risers climb the peak in the dark and are then rewarded with an absolutely spectacular sunrise. Enjoy a steaming cup of coffee while the sun turns the valley below you dark red.

The Zirbitzkogel is not named after the Swiss stone pine, but after the Croatian čьrvenica, which means "red area". At the end of June to the beginning of July, the flowering alpine bush gives the area around the mountain the most beautiful shades of red and pink. This beautiful landscape attracts many hiking enthusiasts every year. On the Zirbitz you can also find the well-known gentian and the effective St. John's wort. The Zirbitz in the Zirbenland invites you to wonderful hikes every year.

The Sabathyhütte is a popular starting point for the ascent of the Gipfelkönig. In the midst of fragrant stone pine forests, you can leave everyday life and stress behind and enjoy the original life to the fullest. After the challenges of hiking through the forests, you can switch off here, look back proudly on your hiking experience and really enjoy yourself. Enjoy a tasty snack and browse through the extensive range of Swiss pine products. Here they still cook according to grandma's recipes. Try the specialities from the Zirbenland. Do you know Zirbenschnaps? But have you ever tasted ZIN - gin made from Swiss stone pine? Zirberol, Zirup and Zirbengelee are just a few of the wonderful products waiting to be tasted by you. The Swiss stone pine has a lot to offer, not only in the culinary field. It also plays an important role in body care. It has a balancing and extremely nurturing effect. Why not try something new, such as Zirbe soap or shampoo with this unusual scent! Your body will thank you.

Obdach, together with Judenburg and Weißkirchen, is part of the Zirbenland. The producers of this brand have dedicated themselves completely to the miracle of the Swiss stone pine. Here, this great tree will accompany you through your holiday.

Winter fun
Obdach offers nature experiences of a special kind, also in winter. Try your hand at snowshoeing and move weightlessly over thick blankets of snow. Train your endurance with cross-country skiing. Enjoy the fairytale winter landscape with unbelievable views while you make your tracks on the cross-country trail. Of course, skiers don't miss out here either.

In the province of SalzburgerLand, the Rieseralm ski region is very well attended thanks to perfect snow conditions, so the Obdach ski lift attracts just as many guests. Long slopes of various degrees of difficulty delight beginners as well as wedeling piste watchers. This ski area offers snow-white winter fun for young and old! Fairytale figures along the slopes encourage the little ones to enjoy winter sports, while mogul slopes challenge your courage. In the fun park all hearts beat faster - here you jump over obstacles, tubes and jumps. The platter and drag lifts take you up the slope and down in different slopes and alleys - everyone gets their money's worth here!
