The impressive restaurant dominates the ski resort and its glass frontage beautifully reflects the mountain world.
Besides Eissee Panorama Restaurant, the old „Weißseehaus“, „Duisburger Hütte“ and „Goldgräberhütte“ contribute to the gastronomic offer of Mölltaler glacier.

The sunny Lienz.
Lienz involves two separate ski run systems which were built on the slopes around the town. While the easy runs of the sunny Zettersfeld are ideal for families with children, Hochstein with its varied ski runs offers challenges for more experienced skiers. The view to the rocks of Lienz Dolomites is amazing from both places.
Zettersfeld is situated at the height of 1670 and 2278 metres mostly over the tree-covered area and well-maintained, more declivous ski runs protected from avalanches characterize it as long as 27 kms. A gondola lift, three chairlifts and three bugel lifts take skiers up there. Although most of the ski runs are blue or red, lovers of challenges can be satisfied with deep snow runs and with a ski slope mound. You can ski right down to the valley on a forest slope.
12 kms of 34 kms have to be taken by train (Autoschleuse Böckstein - Mallnitz).

Heiligenblut is situated close to the highest mountain of Austria, Grossglockner (3798 ms). The ski resort lies between 1300 and 2900 metres a ski run system of 55 kms and altogether 44 lifts belong to. There are excellent deep snow runs in the upper parts and undoubtedly, even the view has to be taken into account: more peaks over 3000 metres, among them the sight of the Grossglockner. Heiligenblut is always snow-covered, but it is due to its outstanding micro climate and not to the snow cannons so the season starts at the end of November and lasts till Easter.
