The Skiing in SAALBACH-HINTERGLEMM-LEOGANG

The Skiing in SAALBACH-HINTERGLEMM-LEOGANG

The Skicircus of Saalbach-Hinterglemm-Leogang covers some 200kms of piste and is cleverly interlinked across north and south faces of a long valley.  The perfect resort for endless cruising along your choice of Greens, Blues, Reds or even the occassional Black run.  The lift system is modern and efficient (heated seats on many chairlifts are a joy on cold days) as is the free Skibus service in the valley that allows you to leapfrog ahead - if you are late for your luncheon appointment...  Speaking of food, there are 50+ mountain restaurants strewn across the mountainside, so you are never too far from a Strüdl, Heißeshokolade or Glühwein.

The unique charm of the resort is present in every ancient timber of these fabulous alpine Hutte.  And the lunchtime cuisine can be anything from Wurst und Chips to prime Venison steaks and fine wines.

ski hotels in Hinterglemm

Alpen Karawanserai****

The old Austrian hotel in the centre of Hinterglemm has undergone a complete transformation over the Summer of 2009.  The "brand new" hotel is still under the ownership of the Sommerbichler family (whom we are sure many of you will have met during your stays), but has been renamed the "Alpen Karawanserai" in keeping with its ultra-modern conceptual look.

In the centre of town (right beside the Reiterkogelbahn lift) the hotel providesa Zen like oasis of calm in the midst of a ski resort that can be relied upon for its liveliness!  The majority of the other buildings in Hinterglemm are in traditional alpine style into which the Alpen Karawanserai sits comfortably, although clearly a little different from the norm.  Rest assured though, you will be looked after in the same style and comfort by the Sommerbichlers and their friendly staff as ever before.

Now with 90 bedrooms and suites plus a greatly expanded spa area on the lower ground floor, the hotel is larger in size than before but has not lost any of the personal touches that always made it so special.

Alpin Juwel****

Another of Hinterglemm's finest hotels that has been treated to a full makeover in the last couple of years (it was originally the Sporthotel Ellmau).

The Alpin Juwel sits right alongside the main nursery slopes and night-skiing arena, just above the very centre of Hinterglemmin.  A prime location that makes it it a genuine ski-in, ski-out hotel, with just a 100 metre walk to Hinterglemm's short main street.

The Alpin Juwel has a very luxurious modern feel to its 70 bedrooms and suites, all of which have been constructed with generous amounts of local pine, spruce and oak (as have the maqjority of the public areas) engendering a real alpine feel to the whole building.

The marriage of food and health is central to the Alpin Juwel's holiday philosopy, which is reflected in the quality and variety of their cuisine and the excellence of their spa facilities with indoor and outdoor pools and a huge range of massages and spa treatments available throughout the year.

ski hotels in Leogang

The beautiful hamlet of Leogang

Landhotel Kirchenwirt****

In the centre of the sleepy hamlet of Leogang the Landhotel Kirchenwirt has stood beside the church since 1326 and overseen the goings on in Leogang for centuries.
With only 17 bedrooms it is a quiet and exclusive little hideaway for those who appreciate a real Austrian atmosphere and are prepared to try their hand at the language.  The rewards are genuine, old-fashioned, Austrian hospitality, outstanding food and peace and quiet in an intimate atmosphere. 
Once discovered, many of the hotel guests return year after year: more like staying with old friends than in a hotel.

The hotel is not however totally antique! Hannes & Lisabeth Unterrainer the owners have added a small sauna and indoor hot-tub on the first floor.  Perfect for a quiet moment after a long day on the slopes.  And all the hotel rooms have the facility to create a steam room in the shower cubicle.
There is a ski shop beside the hotel, which although small seems to have just about everything - and if they don't have it in stock, the owner is quite disposed to jump in his car and go and find it for you!

Kirchenwirt Apartments

A short walk from the hotel (100yds or so) there are some modern apartments that belong to the Unterrainer family also and are available to let.  These are properly equipped with full kitchens, en-suite bedrooms, dining rooms and are perfect for parties or families who would like the flexibility of being able to self-cater on some evenings.  Of course you may stay in the apartments and take breakfast and dinner at the hotel each day, or just breakfasts - the choice is yours!

The skiing in Leogang

There is one ski lift in Leogang village, just 100yds from the hotel, that serves a quiet nursery slope - ideal for beginners, or for finding your legs again before you tackle the bigger stuff.  There is also a ski-school in Leogang where we can arrange group or individual lessons for you; or just a guide.

The stairway to heaven though is just five minutes away by free (and frequent) Ski-Bus that will lift you up into the enormous Ski-circus of Saalbach and Hinterglemm where you can ski all day on different mountains and never have to visit the same charming alpine Stubl twice in a month!
