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.
I wonder…did it ever cross your mind to spend some time at Lake Tegernsee in beautiful Bavaria? The lake is surrounded by these mighty fine hotels. I’ve selected five of them, all lovely treasures that might convince you to go there and experience the ‘luxury Lake life’ to the fullest!
Our ride from hotspot Sölden to the chic spa resort of Bad Hofgastein was beautiful. The scenery changed gradually from the high peaks of Tyrol to the predominantly rolling Salzburgerland landscape. This was going to be another 48 hours in a very different setting and vibe, but with one consistent feature in both resorts: fresh snow!
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.
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 we finally did it. We went to South Tyrol. Visiting this region had been on our wishlist for so long and now the time had come. Curious what the boys and I have been doing in beautiful South Tyrol? Check our sightseeing tips below.
