We arrived around 6pm after a long drive from Venice area. Bad traffic along with getting off the autobahn for lunch (mistake because we couldn't get back on resulting in small windy roads for a couple of hours) thus we made it where we got to the hotel later than planned.
Eva, resort owner, offered to make us dinner. We were thrilled to eat and get settled into the room.
Snitzel and bier and Snitzel with bier/lemonade(Radler) were very good!
We saw a fireworks show from our deck and took a night walk down an easy loop trail.
The cow bells ringing was strangely comforting as we were going to sleep.
Our beds were very comfortable but the pillows in the master bedroom were typical European thin.
The bunk beds were very comfortable and my kids (20 & 16) said the beds and pillows were great.
We woke to a quiet resort but it quickly got busy. We took the chair lift up to the alpine slide starting point. Due to weather the lift was not running any higher.
We were concerned about hiking up and then back down as we are casual hikers. But surprisingly it was an enjoyable hike up to Latschenhütte and had lunch. We then hiked back to the alpine slide and rode down.
Eva gave us great advice for hikes, trails, mountain huts, and driving to our next hotel location.
This is not a fancy decorated resort, but simple clean room for a great price in a great location.
We hope to someday come back!
