Invigorating fresh air – amazing views. Less than 40 metres from the top station of the Asitzbahn and Steinbergbahn cable cars, the Alte Schmiede is perched up at 1760 m. In winter, it's one of the best ski huts in Austria. Experience the mountain from its most enjoyable side here, all year round. In summer it's a very special mountain restaurant.
Ever since it opened in the year 2000, the Alte Schmiede has been the perfect place to meet up on the mountain. In summer, it's an out-of-the-ordinary venue for culture-vultures. From the legendary "Sound tracks on the Asitz" event to folk music and House Grooves – the range of live music is second to none for variety. In winter, it's an award-winning mountain restaurant, somewhere to treat yourself to a break while skiing.
<br/> The décor in the rooms is also fascinating in its diversity - after all, the Alte Schmiede offers a home to anything that deserves to be preserved. It takes its name from a mighty and ancient forging hammer from the Kaiserbachtal in Tirol. Every room clearly bears the signature of Sepp Altenberger jun. A keen collector of traditional artefacts, he has lovingly transformed the Alte Schmiede into a museum-restaurant. Traditions and local crafts are represented by thousands of museum exhibits in 8 rooms. They make for a great atmosphere embracing the whole spectrum from rustic to stylish. It's the ideal setting for relaxing or partying.
