It’s your first time in hotspot ski-resort Sölden and you only have 48 hours to explore it. What should you definitely do and where should you go, to get the best first impression of this very versatile ski resort? A couple of weeks ago I was there. It inspired me to write down this checklist. A list that will guide you along the finest spots Sölden has to offer. According to me, obviously..
The drive to 4 star superior hotel DAS.GOLDBERG in Bad Hofgastein was a lovely one. Heavy snowfall had created this amazing scenery. The climb all the way up to the hotel was quite challenging, but was definitely worth it. When I walked into the hotel, the first thing that struck me was the lovely smell of fresh, roasted coffee. A good sign, instantly felt the cozyness and hospitality.
It doesn’t happen everyday that I get to stay in a real castle that goes back to 1150. You can imagine how excited I was. We were heading there by car and saw it looming in the distance. This beautiful, white Schloss on top of the hill, overlooking the valley of Mittersill. It had been snowing the whole day and created this fairytale picture perfect!
There is always much to derive from the check-in experience in a hotel. My expectations were high this time. I had already heard a lot about Das Central and I was wondering how it would be to spend 2 nights in this top notch hotel, the only 5 star house in Sölden.
At this moment Austria is still my number one winter sports destination, but I must say South Tyrol is a serious runner up. Why? Have a look at my selection of ‘Happiness Creators’. These beauties are here to guarantee a wonderful winter time in the South Tyrol mountains.
Previously I shared a post about the amazing Chalet Village Bergdorf Priesteregg and I promised that more of these treasures would follow later. Well….here is the next one in the range of Luxury Chalet Villages.
While researching I was pleasantly surprised by the fact that Austria is home to many more of these beautiful mountain villages. Again I’ve picked a traditional one. Wood, pure craftsmanship and lots of luxury extras, it’s all there! Check out the features of Almdorf St. Johann in Sankt Johann im Pongau.
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.
Next to all the luxurious features that come with the 4 Star Superior hotel rating, there’s this very special feature. Only to be found at the MOOSER Hotel. Eugen Scalet told me already that the ‘Mother of all Après-Ski huts’ – his MooserWirt – is part of the MOOSER hotel. Sounds good to me; Stay, Sleep and Party all in one place. But it even gets better. Only for hotel guests there is a connecting door, that leads you directly to the MooserWirt! Straight into the party heart of Sankt Anton. Doesn’t your heart beat faster knowing about this now?
Obertauern is one of the hotspots among the major ski resorts in the Alps. It’s known for snow from November to early May, for après-ski and great events. But also for 100 kilometers of slopes and 26 ski lifts. The Ski-Round Super Seven carries skiers to the 7 highest peaks of Obertauern. Knowing this, I wanted to see and experience it myself. You guys know that I am a huge fan of the Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis area, but hey…I am always in for something new! So, last January we went to Obertauern. I was very excited. Would it really be such a hotspot? In terms of ski experience, snow conditions, good cuisine, excellent service and fun in apresski? Expectations were high!
