Biking (Mountain biking)
Gosau is a fascinating region for mountain biking. The Dachstein massif, lush green fields, managed alps, mountain lakes, and routes in various levels of difficulty are sure to delight any biker.
The “Salzkammergut Mountain Biking Guide” by Schubert and Franzke describes 60 tours. Map 1 shows Gosau with the tours to Iglmoos hut, Hornspitz, Seekar, and Plassen.
You can rent a fitting mountain bike at local rental shops (fee required).
Bonus system “Alpine roses”
How many Alpenroses (loyalty points) will each family receive for their holiday? The number of Alpenroses is calculated based on the total value of the hotel bill (room + all extras). We'll be happy to credit each family with 3% of their total spend in the form of Alpenrose points on their loyalty account after departure. The Alpenroses to euro conversion rate: 1:13.333.
What can the Alpenroses be used for? In the regular guest area there are various package deals which you can book online, thus redeeming your Alpine roses. In the event that you can't find a suitable package, you can convert your Alpine roses into a gift certificate for use in our wellness area, using the “Coupon” button (conversion rate 1: 13.3333). The Alpenroses can also be converted into a cash discount by Reception and deducted from your final bill (1: 20 conversion rate).
How are the Alpenroses converted into euros? Conversion of Alpenroses into euros is based on ratios of 1:13.333 and 1:20, i.e. 1000 Alpenroses would amount to a € 50 cash discount (1:20 ratio). However, if you opt for one of our special offers within the regular guest area or a voucher for the wellness area, then 1000 Alpenroses amount to € 75 (ratio 1:13.333).
Did you enjoy your holiday with us? Then recommend us and receive valuable Alpenrose loyality points! How does it work? Enter the regular guest portal with your access data and as recommendation enter the data of your friends and acquaintances. Then submit your personal holiday recommendation. If your friends and acquaintances book with us, you will receive 200 Alpenroses for each night (worth € 15) credited to your regular account and the recommended family will benefit from 400 Alpenroses (worth € 30) as a welcome bonus.
How long are the Alpenroses valid for? The Alpenroses do not expire. Just the birthday bonus is available two years for redemption. If a vacation during this time in our two hotels is not possible, the Alpenroses can be printed out as a coupon to be redeemed later.
Cancellation and trip interruption insurance
You can procure cancellation insurance in order to avoid a rude awakening in the case of unforeseeable events. Conditions are as follows:
Events covered by insurance are such in which the insured is unable to travel, for instance if the arrival or continuation of travels is made impossible. Such events include a serious accident or illness of the insured, the insured’s spouse, children, parents, or parents-inlaw. Death of any of the aforementioned persons, as well as siblings, grandparents, grandchildren, and sons-in-law or daughters-in-law also applies. Further, sudden unexpected problems during pregnancy, intolerances to vaccinations, an unexpected reoccurrence or aggravation of a chronic illness also apply, as well as substantial damage to the insured’s personal property due to fire, elementary events, or criminal offences by a third party resulting in the insured’s required presence at their place of residence.
How much is retention?
Cancellation of the booking before arrival: 20 % of the full booking price
Cancellation of the booking during the stay: 20 % of the full booking price
What to do in the event of damage?
No-show: Please inform the Leading Family Hotel & Resort Dachsteinkönig ASAP concerning your inability to come, along with an endorsement either from a doctor or the police.
How much does cancellation insurance cost?
Suites: 1-3 days = 30,-€ / 4-7 days = 60,-€ / 8-10 days = 90,-€ / 11-15 days = 120,-€ / 16-21 days = 180,-€; Chalets: 1-3 days = 40,-€ / 4-7 days = 80,-€ / 8-10 days = 120,-€ / 11-15 days = 160,-€ / 16-21 days = 195,-€ per stay, room, and family. (There are no refunds for booked cancellation insurance.)
Please note that we only accept written cancellations. Thank you for your understanding.
In accordance with hotel terms and conditions, the following costs apply in case of cancellation of a booking before arrival or during a stay without cancellation insurance, or if the reason for the cancellation is invalid as an event covered by insurance (see introductory paragraph):
- 1 month before arrival – 40 % of the full booking price
- up to 1 week before arrival – 70 % of the full booking price
- in the last week before arrival – 90 % of the full booking price
Free cancellations can be made up to 3 months before arrival. The only cost that applies in this case is the cancellation insurance fee (should cancellation insurance have been procured beforehand).
