On the edge of the Hohe Tauern National Park, Apartment Kerstin 4 is located within the 'Schonblick Mountain Resort & Spa' in the beautiful Rauris valley. It is a scenic and family friendly resort with enchanting authenticity. Located on the south side of the medieval gold mining town of Rauris, and just a couple of minutes walk away to the pedestrianised centre full of shops, bars and restaurants. The main Hochalmbahn gondola station, for the expanding Rauris ski area, lies 150 metres away, along with access to the vast Nordic ski trails. Rauris is also beautiful in the summer for walking holidays and is linked to the Pinzgau Mountain Biking network with over 750km of trails.

There is a more than adequate array of ski pistes within Rauris, with many people returning year on year. The ski schools are some of the best in Europe and it is excellent for beginners, families and intermediates.

Some of the largest ski areas in Austria are also within a 20-40 minute drive including Kitzbuhel, Zell am See, Heiligenblut, Bad Gastein, Flachau, Saalbach, St Johann and the Kitzsteinhorn (Kaprun) Glacier, which provides skiing 365 days a year!

Rauris is a municipality in Salzburg (state) in the area of Pinzgau in Austria. There are about 3,150 inhabitants living in Rauris. Due to the attraction and popularity of the area in terms of tourism & ski, Rauris accommodates almost that number again for visitors to the area.

The ski area above Rauris is called Hochalmbahn. The Hochalmbahn base station gondola to the ski area is only 4 minutes walk from Schonblick Mountain Resort, and directly opposite the site, with ski hire, ski schools and the nursery slopes in the same area. The village of Rauris is at an altitude of 950 metres, with the gondola taking you initially up to Hochalm at 1,780 metres. The second Gipfelbahn gondola takes you to the summit at 2,193 metres. From here, there are blue runs back to the middle station, and a range of red and black runs back down to the village of Rauris.

A cross country skiing trail passes directly in front of the Schonblick Mountain Resort, providing access to 40 kms of cross-country tracks in the Rauris valley.


The Kreuzboden chair lift opposite the road access to North Rauris, takes you to Kreuzboden Restaurant at the top. toboggans are hired from the restaurant. The toboggan run provides great fun for all of the family. It is open daily during the ski season, and on Monday and Thursday evenings from 7.00pm unitl 9.00pm.

A second toboggan run is located at the end of the Rauris valley at Naturfrendehaus in Kolm Saigurn. Access is gained by walking from the Bodenhaus carpark, or calling the taboggan taxi. Tel. No.: +43 6544 8103

"A fairy tale"

We have really enjoyed our stay at this apartment !! We are a very big family of 2 adults and 5 children (2 teenagers and 3 11 year olds) and therefore we were looking for a very cozy home-like place to stay. Kerstin apartment was just what we were looking for and it has really exceeded our expectations ! Two bathrooms, 3 bedrooms, a spacious living room with a kitchen - just a perfect place to stay when coming skiing ! It was a lot of fun for children - a lot of table games, various movies and cartoons (all in the apartment). The kitchen has also had everything included - all the cutlery, frying pans, boiling pans, just perfect for a big family ! Another thing that we have really enjoyed after skiing was having a relaxing time at the sauna and a swimming pool, which were just a minute from the apartment ! One of our greatest memories was sitting in the jacuzzi outside and watching the snow ! The other advantage of the apartment is that it is very close to the ski lifts which made it very convenient for us as the small ones didn't want to ski for the whole day and it took only about 5-7 minutes to walk them back to the apartment ! We had a really great time staying at Kerstin and using all the facilities - definitely one of the best places we've been to !
