Wagrain Resort Guide

Wagrain is an attractive village that maintains a strong sense of traditional Austrian charm. The resort is an ideal base for families with young children and skiers who enjoy wide, well-groomed pistes and an extensive ski area. In the resort centre, you will find a good selection of local bars, restaurants and shopping - all very welcoming and family-friendly. The ski lifts come right down into the village avoiding the need for any ski buses or long walks with the kids! Wagrain is incredibly well located and under an hour’s drive from Salzburg airport and two hours from Munich. If you are looking to buy an apartment or chalet in a pretty Austrian village with extensive skiing and family-friendly activities then Wagrain is certainly worth a visit!

Property in Wagrain

Property for sale in Wagrain has historically been very hard to find. Owners tend to keep their apartments and chalets and pass them from one generation to the next.

That said, there has been some recent development mainly around the Graffenberg lift.

The recently built Graffenberg Resort has the odd resale apartment for sale with prices from around EUR 250,000 for a one-bedroom apartment.

There is also a small collection of chalets situated right on the piste.

Although resales properties are rare, buyers could expect to pay between EUR 700,000 to EUR 1.5m for a detached chalet in a prime location in Wagrain.

When looking for a property for sale in Wagrain you also need to note the residential ‘status’ of the property since the Austrian laws are very strict.

If you wish to rent out your new holiday home then you will need to find a property that has ‘zweitwohnsitz’ or is designated for ‘touristic’ use.

Otherwise, the apartment or chalet is likely to be a ‘hauptwohnsitz’ or main residence and can only be used as such.

 

Winter in Wagrain

Wagrain is situated in the very heart of the Ski Amadé  -  Austria's largest skiing network with 860km of piste.

The immediate ski area – the Snow Space Salzburg – includes the popular resorts of Flachau, Wagrain, St Johann and Flachauwinkl / Zauchensee. Here you have 210 kms of piste covering 12 different peaks and 5 valleys!  

Previously slightly disjointed the ski region was transformed in 2014 with the opening of the spectacular G-Link cable car.

This amazing new ski lift now spans the valley high above Wagrain and connects the village directly to Flachau and Alpendorf.  Wagrain now finds itself at the centre of this exciting newly linked ski region.

Starting in Wagrain it is now possible to ski all the way over to either Alpendorf in one direction or Flachau in the other making the area great for skiers and snowboarder who enjoy exploring other villages or even just looking for a different spot for lunch!

The area is ideal for families and intermediate skiers with long, wide pistes passing through some picturesque forests.

 

 

Summer in Wagrain

Wagrain lies in the heart of Salzkrammergut – Austria’s beautiful lake district that includes the world-famous Mondsee, Attersee, St Wolfgang and Hallstatt lakes.

 

The area is glorious during the summer with a huge variety of watersports on offer as well as some great beaches from which to enjoy the warm waters.  

 

Back in Wagrain there are walks and hikes to suit all ages and fitness levels including many well-marked trails leading directly from the village.

 

For those that prefer a slightly faster pace, there are hundreds of kilometres of dedicated cycling and mountain bike tracks as well as the popular ‘Water World’.
