Above it all at the Adler Lounge
Amidst the spectacular Grossglockner mountain scenery, modern architecture reaches towards the clouds of style and enjoyment. With more than 60 3,000-metre (9,800 foot) peaks in front of you, chilling, dining, staying overnight, or simply "being above it all" is easy at the Adler Lounge. A holiday in the Grossglockner resort of Kals/Matrei is invariably a superlative mountain holiday. In winter, the region boasts more than 68 miles (109 km) of ski runs (East Tirol’s largest ski area), and in summer National Park Hohe Tauern (Central Europe’s largest national park) invites you to hike and mountain bike through adventure worlds and trails of alpine traditions. The Adler Lounge is enthroned at about 8,200 ft (2,500 m) altitude, right by the cable car station. In blissfully quiet, comfortable all-glass cabins you float from Kals to the heights. Designer furniture, wood floors, and modern art make après-ski as much of an experience as the summer jazz brunch or a stylish afternoon meal at the Adler Lounge. And if, after all that enjoyment, you cannot tear yourself away - why not stay for the night?
