      Your Summer Holiday in St. Johann in Tirol

      'Lebensgefühl' in St. Johann in Tirol means spending quality time with your family in stunning surroundings.

    A holiday in the heart of the Alps

    Listen to the cowbells in the distance, marvel at the mountain lakes glistening in the morning sun and take in the smell of mountain flowers while exploring your surroundings: Summer in St. Johann in Tirol and its neighbours OberndorfKirchdorf and Erpfendorf couldn't be more different from busy city life. Here, we like to take a step back and live every moment to the fullest.

    We invite you to get out of the tourist zone and become a local for the time of your stay: Head on a leisurely (or challenging!) hike, climb a summit or spend a whole day just sunbathing in the grass, before mingling with the locals over some hearty Tyrolean dumplings. And if you are travelling with kids, even better: St. Johann in Tirol is a prime family destination with tons of kid-friendly activities.

    Forget the cliche pictures and find out what the Alpine lifestyle is really all about. Experience the real deal, the Austrian 'Lebensgefühl'.
