Recently l went to the beautiful Salzbugerland to enjoy Hinterglemm in all its winter glory. Not my first time at this lovely Alpine village, but my first time ever though, visiting the ADLER RESORT. I was there to attend the Grand Opening event and experience the ‘YouareAdler’ way of being a guest at this brand new house.
Arriving at the Hotel Lux Alpinae in Sankt Anton immediately aroused my curiosity. A house so unconventional, built upon an extremely steep slope (40°) and with these mainly raw materials. Couldn’t wait to find out how it would be to stay here for a few days…Let me tell you about this remarkable place and the 5 reasons why you should definitely consider to stay here.
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.
The Oktoberfest is over and wintersports season is about to start; the perfect time to do this ‘in between’ thing, that you’ve probably always wanted to do: Detox! Finally getting rid of all the bad stuff that’s been in there for so long. Cleanse your body, mind and soul and make this fresh and fruity reborn start. Curious to find out more about it, I dived into this world of detox & spa hotels in Austria, Germany and South Tyrol. Must admit, quite tempting to try this major clean-up in these heavenly surroundings.
In my earlier post about our first trip to South Tyrol I promised to share more about our hotel in Naturno, close to Merano. Well here it is, 4 great reasons to stay at Spa & Family Resort Sonnenhof.
This summer VALAVIER Aktivresort in Brand, was one of our temporary homes abroad. Staying at the Valavier surprised us in many ways, but there are 3 specific things about this lovely place I like to share. Of course, the rooms are fully equipped and the Wellness & Spa facilities are well taken care of, but that’s what you may expect from a hotel like this. It’s the feeling you get when you stay here, that’s what actually makes the difference.
I am happy to share this last one in the range of beautiful Chalet Villages, at least for now….I’ve discovered many more of these treasures worth sharing, so stay tuned for more in the future. Now…let me show you the Chalet Village Böhmerwald in the beautiful Bohemian Forest; last but definitely not least!
