We have been to this hotel more than 10 times and we keep coming back and have been both in summer and winter time.
The hotel is a short 5 minutes drive from the highway and ideally located in the outskirts of the picturesque Altenmarkt village (5 minute walk) with good options for some shopping. There is about a 25 minute drive to Salzburg, Hotel is located in a very quiet place with great views of the forest and mountains - the hotel grounds are large and has a playground for children.
In winter, skiing is the main activity and main skilifts are only a short drive away (ski bus stops right outside the hotel), there are cross country skiing tracks just behind the hotel and many walking tracks to keep you occupied should the weather not be good.
Summer is great with options for hiking, mountain biking (rent at one of the many sport shops in town), paragliding or going for long walks in the fantastic surroundings.
5 minutes by foot is the Terme Amade which is a brand new indoor waterpark with pools and slides as well as a great wellness area.
Rooms comes in many sizes and you will have no problem finding one that suits you - as we are traveling with children, we opt for the 2 bedroom rooms. Rooms are sparkling clean, beds are great and all have large TV's with some international channels.
Hotel has a large common area where you can hang out at the bar after ski or dinner - children's play area in the basement offers table tennis, pool and fuss ball table. There is a nice pool area as well as a well equipped sauna/steam area for relaxing after a day of activities
The half board option is great value for money and breakfast will surely set you up for a long day of activities. The real treat is served at dinner time where you will enjoy a 6 course dinner which is always well prepared and extremely delicious (you choose one of 3 main courses at breakfast so there will always be something you like).
Overall, this is a great family run hotel and the warmth of the welcome that the Bittersam family provides along with the facilities, rooms, food and the great location makes this a hotel we keep coming back to...
