If you yearn to escape from the hustle of daily life, unwind and reload your energy level in a very pleasant way, you might consider a stay here at Bergdorf Priesteregg. It’s the combination that makes this one so very attractive: maximum privacy and the luxury features of a top notch hotel.
During one of my earlier visits to Saalbach Hinterglemm, I accidentally drove by this stylish white hotel. I pulled over to get a closer look. This cool place out there – in the middle of the fresh green lawn – was Design Boutiquehotel WIESERGUT.
The first thing that comes to my mind is, whether the word ‘hotel’ does justice to this remarkable place. Of course it offers all the features you may expect from a luxurious 5-star hotel, but in my opinion this idyllic spot – at the foot of the Wilder Kaiser – can’t be summarized just as a hotel. It’s something more profound, like a way of life. Let me tell you a bit more about Stanglwirt. The history, what the family offers their guests and how they incorporate the gifts of nature into their beautiful home.
Of course the concert is one of the great things to go to, during Closing Weekend. But for those of you who are not that much into this music, there are loads of other great things to do and places to go to in Ischgl. I’ve selected my favorite ones and love to share them with you. It’s a combination of fine restaurants, nice spots for a drink and/or dance and experiencing the brand new, state-of-art gondola lift.
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. This village offers a lot of different things, even things you wouldn’t think of in the first place. Like a respectable Art collection, at the Elizabeth Arthotel.
Vienna was named the city with the best life quality in the world by the global consulting firm Mercer – four times in a row. But why is Vienna so high ranked? Personally I think the slow and very traditional lifestyle makes a huge difference to other metropoles in the world. And the Viennese Ball-season is a big part of this old fashioned life-style of Viennese citizens.
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?
Once a year the entire ski world goes to the picturesque and upscale ski resort Kitzbühel in Tyrol. For one week this charming village is packed with visitors from all over the world. Press, top notch ski athletes and many, many celebrities; Everyone is into the ‘Hahnenkamm Fever’. The best ski athletes in the world gather in Kitzbühel to celebrate the highlight of the World Cup calendar. The ‘Streif’ is regarded THE BOMB. The most legendary and spectacular ski slope in the world and asks the utmost of the skiers.
Kühtai is the highest skivillage in Austria ( 2.020m ) and therefore very snow-sure. For us choosing this village in December turned out to be a very good move. The predictions for most of the ski resorts around Christmas promised a green week, but Kühtai was fully covered in white.
