10 things to look forward to when visiting South Tyrol

Very soon we are leaving for our next trip. I am pretty excited about this, will be my first time to South Tyrol! I always love the researching part before traveling to a new place. It makes me want to go there asap. Because this region is on my wishlist for quite some time now, I’ve been surfing the web extensively lately. The surroundings of South Tyrol are well known for its beauty. The mountain views, palm trees and subtropical temperatures; can’t wait to experience and absorb it all. But what else is typical for this region? What should we definitely do, see, eat, drink? I’ve made a list with 10 things about South Tyrol, based on what I’ve read online and heard from locals and friends.

Chalet Village Almdorf St. Johann. Luxury stay in Salzburger Land

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.

Area 47. Ötztal, Sölden. The ultimate playground for thrill seekers

I have to be honest with you. Being a mom of 3 boys, I’ve seen quite a few playgrounds over the last 11 years, but I didn’t know about this one in Sölden, Ötztal, yet. Not really suitable for the youngest family members I would say. This ‘ground’ is for the true daredevils amongst us. The fearless ones, the thrill seekers out there that yearn for a big time adrenaline shot. I’m pretty sure your teenage offspring would love to go here, even with mom and dad :). A little warning upfront is in place though; don’t show this post to your kids, if you’re not into some action. Showing to them is definitely going with them!

Mama Thresl. Urban Soul meets the Alps

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.

Five Gorgeous ‘Last Christmas’ Ski Chalets

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.
