The 4 Star Superior Dachsteinkönig Familux Resort (formerly Leading Family Hotel & Resort Dachsteinkönig) is probably the most relaxing and innovative family hotel in Europe. It is located in Gosau (Upper Austria) and opened in December 2016. The lifts to the Dachstein West ski resort go up from the gates of this fabulous family resort. The Hornspitz Express lift and the large children's area run by the ski school are only 100 meters away.

105 family suites and 12 chalet units (single and double chalets, each with its own sauna) provide families visiting Dachsteinkönig with luxurious accommodations. All room types feature a separate children's room with plenty of luxury for young and old.

The sensational indoor play area is 2,000 m² and includes a cinema, theater, soft play area spanning two floors, family bowling alley, gymnasium, go-cart course and many other attractions. Children couldn't ask for more! Babies as of 7 days old (!) and children are cared for 7 days a week from 8:00 AM - 9 PM by professionally trained caregivers– many of whom are kindergarten teachers. The absolute highlight is found in the pool area: the 100 meter long water slide with great special effects.

Ernst Mayer and Family are the family holiday experts in charge here and they have been setting milestones for years with the Alpenrose Familux Resort (Lermoos) and the Oberjoch Familux Resort (Bad Hindelang).
