Lofer is situated in Saalachtal, at a height of 639 metres, and surrounded by the Loferer and Reither Steinberge and spurs of the Chiemgauer Alps. Both in summer and winter many visitors find their way to Lofer for an unforgettable holiday.
There are numerous activities for active winter sports fanatics. The ski resort Almenwelt Lofer offers challenges to beginning and advanced skiers and snowboarders alike. The ski resort of Lofer is known to be suitable for children and families. It is not a surprise that the ski resort has received several awards and nominations. In case you'd like to cross-country ski, Saalachtal has over 80 kilometres of cross-country trails waiting for you, and the Loferer Alm has another cross-country trail at a height of 1300 metres, measuring 4 kilometres.
Of course you could just hike too, during your winter sports holidays. The Saalachtal offers over 50 kilometres of cleared winter tracks, "a beautiful and alternative way to experience the environment of Lofer in winter". Two toboggan runs are available in the vicinity of Landhaus Sonnheim. Departure stations are located at Maria Kirchental and restaurant Knappenstadl.
Landhaus Sonnheim and Sonnheim Apartments are centrally located in the historic centre of Lofer. Thanks to the unique location of both houses in a dead-end street and the mountains literally in the backyard, there's hardly any traffic and quietness is guaranteed. The ski lift of the Almenwelt Lofer valley station, as well as the centre of Lofer, are situated at a mere 150 metres from the apartments. Hence, everything you need is in the vicinity of your apartment. That ensures a true holiday!

Several restaurants serving delicious meals are just a few steps away from Landhaus Sonnheim and Sonnheim Apartments. We especially recommend Restaurant Knappenstadl. Not only because there's a toboggan run at Knappenstadl, but also because right from the restaurant you can see the illuminated feeding place for wild animals. The ski resort counts 6 restaurants and 3 schirmbars (Kuhbar, Hasnstall and Karussell).
You can complete your skiing day in one of the après-ski bars at the valley station. That's where BoBo's and the Karussel bar are located. You could also, as you descent, take a break at the Hasnstall, and continue skiing back to the valley after your après-ski. Our Kellerbar is of course also available for après-ski, exclusively for guests from Landhaus Sonnheim and Sonnheim Apartments. The Kellerbar is located in the Landhaus.
During your stay at Lofer, of course you could also ski in one of our 'neighbouring ski resorts'. At less than a 20 minutes' drive from Lofer you find Leogang (ski resort Saalbach Hinterglemm), Maria Alm (ski resort Hochkönig), Fiederbrunn, Unken (Heutal) and Waidring (ski resort Steinplatte).
Lofer is not only during summer and winter a popular holiday destination. During spring and autumn too, many visitors find their way to and their appreciation for Lofer. It is certainly worth visiting Lofer for a few days during Easter holidays or autumn holidays.
