Hiking, biking, horse riding or yoga. With these hotels your holiday will definitely be an experience! A run through the local forests is nice – but nothing compared to a trip to a really great sports hotel, right? We have 3 great hotels for you.

For fitness lovers

Are you ready for active holidays in the mountains? Then we recommend Achenkirch in Tyrol. Our hotel tip for you is the 4-star hotel “Das Kronthaler” at an altitude of about 1000 meters. In addition to a huge spa area and the delicious Tyrolean cuisine, the sports facilities are great. On the roof terrace a cool outdoor course awaits you and in the mountains, trail runners can experience their absolute rush of heights. In addition, the hotel has its own riding facility with riding instructors. So how about a ride through the mountains? However, the indoor programme can also hold its own with the outdoor programme. There is a huge fitness room with personal coach, running training, Nordic walking, yoga, fascia or TRX training. And if you want to relax after your workout, you can jump into the pool with a great view of the mountains.

For mountain lovers

The “Graseck” in Upper Bavaria is the hotspot for outdoor sports lovers. Here you have the choice between 30 lovingly furnished rooms and suites. The family-run hotel is located outside Garmisch-Patenkirchen at an altitude of 900 meters, surrounded by green meadows and farms. Bike tours, mountain hikes and jogging units are on the program here. The 453-kilometer network of routes offers all levels of difficulty. There are breathtaking routes through the Bavarian alps you can walk directly from the hotel. Our insider tip: The self-defense workshops of the hotel. Here you will learn a lot of grips and tricks that might come in handy.

For yogis

The “Silena” in South Tyrol. Arrive and feel good right away. The newly opened nature-design hotel at 1354 meters above sea level in the Italian village of Vals is an absolute dream. Feng Shui-based interior design and regional natural cuisine will enchant you in a relaxed atmosphere. The wide sports program also invites you to relax: Yoga, Qigong, breath walks through the moor or guided meditations. When the weather is good those sessions take place outside on beautiful meadows or even under the starry sky. So: Let’s get there!
