Urban Soul meets the Alps, that’s the credo of Mama Thresl and shows how contemporary hotel industry in the Alps can do without clichés and conventions. The idea for this hotel concept comes from the owners Renate and Huwi Oberlader, who are deeply rooted in their region and even like to spend their free time in the mountains. With their Mama Thresl they like to share a piece of Alpine Sports home to their guests. Let’s have a look at this remarkable hotel.
Ischgl is one of the ski villages I always like to come back to. The superb ski facilities, the variety of hotels and fine restaurants and that sparkling party vibe, it’s quite something.

I don’t know about you guys, but around this time of year – with the holiday’s coming up – I always have to think about the classic video by Wham! from 1984. Writing this blogpost, I realized that it’s been 30 years!! since I sat down for the TV mesmerizing, when the iconic ‘Last Christmas’ video aired for the first time. What a romantic and cosy setting to celebrate Christmas with friends in a chalet in the snow. It was definitely something I wanted to experience once in my life.

We can all remember our own granny. Just thinking about her, puts a smile on your face. She used to knit while she listened to your troubles, your newest adventures and heartbreaking stories. Granny gave you a hot chocolate to warm up from cold winter weather. Granny is a reminiscence of childhood.
