Size that inspires

LOCATION

If you are a skier, driving towards Saafelden will give you a tingly sensation. You will want to grab your skis and head to the nearest ski lift station or put on a pair of hiking boots and take off into the mountains. The region is the heart of active experiences in Austria, famous for its excellent hotels. A special family hotel was built, a stone’s throw away from the ski slope at a spectacular location. It was the vision of husband and wife duo, Birgit and Alexander Strobl, who grew the small family hotel into one of the best hotels in the region. Sitting on the edge of Steinerne Meer mountain massif, the estate stretches across 450 acres of land, allowing their offer to develop in a big way. The hotel is perfect for events and praised by meeting planners, especially those organising car launches and active programmes.

ACCESSIBILITY

The motorway from Salzburg to the Saalfelden skiing heaven branches off in Bischofshofen, a picturesque drive that is part of the overall experience. Orderly railway connections are also a great option to get to Saalfelden. Salzburg is an hour and a half away and Munich is also not that far. The hotel is 5 kilometres away from the very centre of Saalfelden and a large car park is available for guests arriving with cars.

COLD APPETIZER - Architecture and Aesthetics

The hotel evolved through different phases, but the needs of event organisers were always at the forefront. The design is an upgrade of the typical Alpine/Austrian architecture with a modern twist. A bird’s eye view reveals how vast the resort actually is and it’s then that you realise what the hotel is capable of. You will also start to appreciate the owner’s entrepreneurial spirit, transforming the place into a resort with one of the most complete congress offers in Europe.

WARM APPETIZER - Staff and catering

The staff’s kindness and hospitality are above standard. The large team is obviously well taken care of and that translates to their service. Self-service breakfast is great with a lot of front-cooking and local ingredients. There’s a lot of restaurant-looking spaces around the hotel inviting you to sit down and grab something to eat. Their catering offer is also high quality, satisfying the needs of the most demanding meeting planners.

Hotel rooms

The rooms are modern and well furnished. Because of different development phases, there are many room types, but all of them are very spacious. Use of wood is predominant, just like in most hotels in the region. All rooms feature gorgeous views of the mountainside and a balcony or terrace. The bathroom is above-standard and as a whole, the rooms can easily be placed in the 5-star category.
