DAS.GOLDBERG, Bad Hofgastein. A golden stay in every single way!

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.

Ludwigs’ way to have a great ski break in Serfaus

Once a year – always in week 11 – I fly to the beautiful village of Serfaus. This village is located at an altitude of 1427 meters, on a sunny plateau above the Tyrolean Inn Valley and is definitely one of my favorites. I’ve been doing this for 6 years now. Always love to go back here. Through the years I’ve collected spots, tips, venues and things that I love to share with you in this blogpost.

Top 10 biggest Après-Ski Hits in Austria

For all you ‘newcomers’, below you find the list with the 10 biggest Après-Ski hits. Of course you can argue about it, but this is my personal list based on more than 15 years of partying in Austrian bars. My advice to you. Learn them by heart, it will make your Après-Ski experience an even greater one. My personal favorite – and number 1 on the list – is ‘Dem Land Tirol die Treue’ by Die Grubentaler. It’s a traditional march song about Tyrol, you won’t hear it everywhere in Austria.

The MOOSER Hotel. 4 Star Superior Hotel hosts 5 Star Après-Ski Party

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?

Ludwigs’ Top 5 Après-Ski Party Places

You can’t do one without the other, at least that’s what I think. I can’t imagine going back to the hotel for a relaxing evening, after a day on the slopes: No! For me a perfect day in the snow definitely has to end with ‘Fliegender Hirsch’, a fine glass of Grüner Veltliner and singing & dancing to the tunes of the (Schlager) music. I’ve surrounded myself with great people over the years, who enjoy this as much as I do. Lucky me!
