For a cool stay this winter, look no further than the Gartenhotel Theresia, where traditional Austrian hospitality meets invitingly chic interiors and an uncompromised philosophy of sustainable living pervades this 53-room & suite hotel in one of the best locations in Saalbach Hinterglemm - right beside a ski lift and just a 5-minute walk from the centre. Owners and hosts, Mr. and Mrs. Brettermeier, have created eye-catching spaces that remain warm and welcoming, and a real jewel of the hotel is its collection of modern art with some 40 exhibited works including Andy Warhol, Hermann Nitsch and Corneille. Award-winning, organic cuisine is served across four restaurants and other facilities include a top spa, sauna world, in- and outdoor pools, gym, kids club (also free hire of baby equipment), ski school and also special rooms for allergy sufferers upon request.
Why in winter?
Lifts directly opposite the hotel offer guests direct access to the 200km of groomed slopes and 62 modern cable cars and lifts that make up the Skicircus Saalbach-Hinterglemm Leogang. Snowmaking facilities on all major runs (top to bottom) guarantee a ski / boarding season from late November / early December to April. For even more snowboarding and freestyle fun, the resort features two fun parks, including one night park open daily to 9:30pm. Those in search of a more ‘gentler’ winter experience can access the resort’s 35km of prepared winter hiking trails, or try their hand at ice-skating, toboganning, curling, snowmobiling or quad driving.
New: 30 WiFi hot spots scattered throughout the resort for those times to be in touch. The Gartenhotel Theresia has its own on-site ski school and sports shop with ski / snowboard hire open all day and ski passes can also be purchased at the hotel before hitting the slopes.
