“…The end of the ride is the beginning of the journey…”

Boutique Hotel Wachtelhof, Hinterthal in the Salzburger Land, Austria

At the Boutique Hotel Wachtelhof your holiday begins 1000m above the daily routine. The idyllic chalet hotel in Hinterthal, between Salzburg and Kitzbühel, is nestled in unspoiled nature at the base of the mountains Steinernes Meer and Hochkönig (3100m) in a place of silence and originality. For centuries, this valley has been chosen for hunting. Up until the 12th century it was populated by bears, hence the name of our mountain stream “Urslau” (Ursus, Latin for bear). The Ski Amadé region Hochkönig connects the villages Maria Alm, Hinterthal, Dienten and Mühlbach. Here, on 150 km of slopes and with 32 lifts, you can enjoy an unforgettable panoramic tour around the majestic Hochkönig. The slopes are within walking distance, but for those who want to get there more easily, they can be chauffeured with the golf cart. Rich in snow in winter, the ski resort is also known for rustic alpine pastures and huts and is a dream for ski touring in easily accessible open terrain. Furthermore, there are more than 30 kilometres of prepared cross-country trails waiting for you. For your stay in this winter wonderland, we recommend a wealth of experiences, from traditional customs to adventurous mountain sports,, to round off your trip. In summer there are 100 different possibilities to experience picturesque hiking trails leading to alpine pastures and mountain huts; there are exciting activities such as rafting, canyoning, golf, as well as caves, gorges, fortresses and castles to discover. Culture, nature and fun: enjoy every day of your holiday. Couples enjoy the cocooning atmosphere, families appreciate the family-friendly rooms designed just for them, and solo travellers will find a relaxing oasis for a day out in nature.
