Home of Skiass Marcel Hirscher

The best skier in the world comes from the Lammertal

Annaberg-Lungötz is the home town of the currently most famous and successful ski racer in the world: Marcel Hirscher was born and raised here. In the ski school of his father Ferdinand the double Olympic champion learned how to ski. On the slopes of the ski region Dachstein-West, the most successful ski racer in the history of the World Championships has made his first turns in the snow.

Successful winter season 2017/18

Short review of a record skiing winter

At the end of the season 2017/18 Marcel Hirscher can look back on a moving ski winter: After the ankle fracture in mid-August, he had indeed an enormous training deficit compared to his racing colleagues. But something like that only spurs the skier of Annaberg on to even higher performances. With a lot of ambition, discipline and hard work, he was already at the top of podium in Beaver Creek (USA) at the beginning of December. Numerous victories followed, until it went to PyeonChang (South Korea) for the Olympic Winter Games. There, Marcel Hirscher confirmed his outstanding form and finished 1st in the giant slalom as well as in the combination - double Olympic victory! And - what no one before him has managed to do: At the end of the season he won the seventh overall World Cup in a row!

Celebration on the first World Cup victory

Sponatneous party for Marcel Hirscher

Frenetic cheers burst in Annaberg-Lungötz, when Marcel Hirscher won his first Giant Slalom World Cup on December 13, 2009 in Val-d'Isère, France! Almost exactly one year later, on December 12, 2010 - again in France - he also won the slalom. Of course, the World Cup winner again was given a party in his home town.

Seither hat Marcel Hirscher - zur Freude seiner stetig wachsenden Fangemeinde - viele weitere Erfolge eingefahren. Der Tourismusverband Annaberg-Lungötz ist sehr stolz auf das Ski-Ausnahmetalent und gratuliert sehr herzlich!

What does a ski racer do in summer?

He likes to go hiking, preferably in his home town of Annaberg-Lungötz. There, on the Stuhlalm, Marcel Hirscher spent his childhood. It's a place he's drawn to over and over again.

A very special experience for him was the climbing tour to the Bischofsmütze in summer 2017. With an experienced guide Marcel Hirscher conquered the probably most striking summit of the Gosaukamm.
