For the less active tourists there are typical cozy Styrian inns. If you had enough of snow and skiing, we highly recommend you to a visit local unique salt mine 18th century. And that's not all. There are actually severa interesting places worth visiting in the vicinity of Tauplitz. For example, in near Kulm there is the track of World Cup speed skiing, the greatest curiosity of which is a mammoth ski jump, which is the largest natural bridge in the world. In the nearby town of Bad Mitterndorf there are excellent spa Grimming Therme, which has not only relaxing but also therapeutic effect mainly focused on the musculoskeletal system.
Of accommodation we would like to mention a noteworthy hotel, which is unusually situated right at the top station of one of the cable cars. Of course there is also accommodation available in traditional cottages , guesthouses or hotels. The distance from the ski slopes is literally just a few steps. Anyway, if you like skiing, and you also want to enjoy relax, there is no better place in Austria, than Tauplitz.
