Brilliant ski holiday in Tyrol.

Just a couple of snow-shoe steps away from our hotel – or just one stumble and trip, as we like to call it – is the Hopfgarten cable car: your direct ascent into the ski resort SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser-Brixental. A dream for winter sports enthusiasts, who can also ski direct to the hotel door on the last run of the day. If they still have the energy ...

This highly decorated ski resort is unbelievably big: almost 290 kilometres of ski runs, 90 cable cars and lifts and, fortunately, 81 traditional mountain huts with sun terrace where you can make a pit stop. Top Tip: make use of our free ski guides through the SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser-Brixental resort!

Our Move & Relax ski guides are also happy to take you up early once during the week as part of the early bird ski session – before everyone else! Take the first few glides on wonderful freshly prepared pistes and discover the region through our eyes.

If the snow-white XXL skiing of the SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser-Brixental resort is still not enough for you then we recommend the Kitzbüheler Alpen Super Ski Card – 1 ski pass for 22 ski resorts in Austria! Over 2,750 kilometres of pistes in Tyrol, Salzburg, Styria, Upper Austria, Carinthia und Bavaria. Better get into training!

It's not just alpine skiers and snowboarders who come into their element in the Kitzbühel Alps – there are also lots of energetic nature lovers who immerse themselves in Tyrol's beautiful landscapes through cross-country skiing, winter hiking or ski touring. Direct from the door!

After so much MOVE during the day, the evening calls for RELAX. Time to welcome you to our spacious wellness area with sauna, massages, pool and some well-deserved regeneration.
