The 5 most beautiful hotels for a winter holiday in Tyrol

Tyrol has always been immensely popular as a winter sports destination. These hotels are not only close to some of Austria's largest ski resorts, but also promise rest and relaxation away from the stresses of everyday life.

26 November 2021

While the run-up to Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year for some, for others it is marked by hectic last-minute shopping to get presents on time, intense days at work and stress in the general preparations for Christmas Eve. It's no wonder that some people feel the longing to take a few days off and really pamper themselves. Tyrol is not only a popular destination for winter sports of all kinds, but also offers some outstanding wellness temples that are perfect for a relaxing stay in the cold season. See the five most beautiful hotels here.

1. the Interalpen-Hotel Tyrol

In the middle of the Olympiaregion Seefeld, high on the Seefeld Plateau, the Interalpen-Hotel Tyrol "sits enthroned" - and enthroned is no exaggeration here, because the 5-star superior hotel in front of the breathtaking backdrop of Wetterstein and Karwendel is a stunner. On around 5,300 square metres, holidaymakers will find everything their wellness heart desires: from the spa with panoramic pool, Tyrolean sauna village and its own ladies' spa to a spacious fitness area and a wide range of treatments and massages. Exercise enthusiasts will also get their money's worth here, as the hotel also offers indoor golf and tennis facilities, as well as some great cross-country ski trails and routes for snowshoe hikes through the snowy countryside right on the doorstep. A horse-drawn carriage ride through the fairytale winter wonderland is also particularly fabulous. Those who enjoy culinary delights will also be happy here in six parlours with a typical Tyrolean ambience, two bars, Café Wien, a Smoker's Lounge and a casually elegant spa restaurant. A special highlight: the Chefs Table, which has been awarded four toques, where guests can sit directly in the open kitchen and watch the team led by head chef Mario Döring, sous chef Mathias Hendl and head patissier Michael Hollaus prepare their menu - a true experience for the senses!

2. astoria resort seefeld

Just a stone's throw away from the Interalpen Hotel Tyrol, another 5-star superior hotel awaits those seeking relaxation: the Astoria Resort Seefeld. Situated in a park of around 20,000 square metres, this wellness temple welcomes its guests with a spa covering an area of around 4,700 square metres and makes hearts beat faster with large, interconnected indoor and outdoor pools, sports pools, a salt water whirlpool as well as several saunas, a fitness room, Kneipbecken, heated water beds and much more. It is not without reason that the resort wins many awards year after year and is considered one of the best wellness hotels in Austria. However, there are not only awards for the spa area: the creative creations of the kitchen team also provide real culinary delights and have already been awarded a toque by Gault Millau for the tenth time in a row. Especially great in the warm months: the fantastically beautiful natural pond, which invites you to linger and dream with cozy lounging areas. In winter, on the other hand, the Olympiaregion Seefeld impresses with five excellent ski areas, plenty of snow and the best piste conditions.

3. hotel Kitzhof

Right next to the town park and only around five minutes' walk from the picturesque heart of the famous winter sports resort of Kitzbühel lies the 4-star superior Hotel Kitzhof, which is considered one of the best addresses in the area. In winter, the hotel is a great place to stay for all passionate winter sports enthusiasts, as one of the largest ski areas - the Kitzbühel Alps - as well as countless cross-country skiing trails and winter hiking paths are right outside the hotel's gates. For those who cannot practice the sport themselves, the world-famous Hahnenkann with the downhill slope Streif can be reached in just a few minutes on a leisurely walk and, with a little luck, witness spectacular races. After an eventful day, the 600 square metre wellness area of the design hotel with an indoor pool, Finnish sauna, Swiss stone pine sauna, steam bath, solarium and cosy relaxation areas invites you to completely let go and unwind. Those who have regenerated enough should definitely also visit the fitness room, from which you have an impressive view of a waterfall.

4. organic and wellness hotel Stanglwirt

Also in Kitzbühel lies a family-run hotel that has been welcoming its guests with authentic Tyrolean hospitality for around 400 years: the organic and wellness hotel Stanglwirt, which is an organic farm and 5-star superior luxury hotel in one. It is not for nothing that the hotel can count itself among the best hotels in the world, because the 12,000 square meters of wellness area with rock bath, organic pine sauna, brine pool, waterfall grotto, panoramic areas and a lot of beneficial treatment options are hard to beat.

Visitors here enjoy the perfect combination of closeness to nature, luxury, sports, entertainment and sustainable recreation. For example, the nearby Skiwelt Wilder Kaiser - Brixental offers plenty of options to be physically active in winter, while those seeking peace and quiet can recharge their batteries with a view of the breathtaking mountain panorama of the Wilder Kaiser. Younger guests are also well catered for here: in a children's water world with a 120-metre-long large water slide, a pool cinema and various pools for safe and fun swimming, babies and toddlers as well as teens will get their money's worth.

5. Quellenhof Leutasch

The fifth top hotel in Tyrol takes us once again to the Olympiaregion Seefeld, Seefeld Leutasch to be precise, where the Quellenhof Leutasch awaits its guests with typical Tyrolean alpine chic, relaxation and deceleration in a variety of ways. The light-flooded baths and sauna area with a year-round heated outdoor pool, a 34 degree warm brine pool and the Q Spa, which offers numerous massages, Ayurveda treatments and cosmetic treatments for the guests, guarantee relaxing moments and cosy hours. In the snow room, visitors to the spa can feel the fresh snow under their feet summer and winter and get the cardiovascular system going before sweating in the sauna. Those who want even more snow can take a winter excursion into the magnificent nature of Tyrol and explore the many winter hiking trails. You can also enjoy the substantial breakfast buffet and the restaurant with creations made from ingredients that mostly come from the region.
