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!

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.
Obertauern is one of the hotspots among the major ski resorts in the Alps. It’s known for snow from November to early May, for après-ski and great events. But also for 100 kilometers of slopes and 26 ski lifts. The Ski-Round Super Seven carries skiers to the 7 highest peaks of Obertauern. Knowing this, I wanted to see and experience it myself. You guys know that I am a huge fan of the Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis area, but hey…I am always in for something new! So, last January we went to Obertauern. I was very excited. Would it really be such a hotspot? In terms of ski experience, snow conditions, good cuisine, excellent service and fun in apresski? Expectations were high!
Ever wondered how your ski-instructor got that perfect brown tan on his face? It was my ski-instructor Manfred who revealed the secret to me almost 14 years ago. I went to Serfaus together with my love, to ski for the very first time in my life. Nervous and trembling like a leaf for my first lesson, I met Manfred. He looked at me and saw at once that I was not at ease. He promised me that, by the end of the week, I could do the ‘red’ slope without fear. I laughed at him and told him that this was not going to happen; no red slope for me! I really didn’t want to look like Brigdet Jones on her first skibreak with Hugh Grant and loosing her goddess image at once.
Indeed. If the mountains are calling we must go. Make no mistake, not all the mountains make me move, but the ones in Austria do. I simply love the unexpected sights and views being in Austria’s countryside. Curvy mountain roads lead you to the most beautiful scenery. I’ve truly fallen in love with this country and its mountains, over and over again.
