A winter day in the Murau region

You are gently kissed awake by the rising sun in the garden rooms. Opening the windows, the clear and pure air flows into the room and lets you breathe deeply. Leisurely you stroll into the restaurant to the breakfast buffet and hear the fuzzy warm smell of brewed coffee and fresh pastries. You can already enjoy your Sunday breakfast with homemade baked goods and preserves. Strengthened and rested, you can now actively organize your day in the fresh air, but only as long as you feel like it.

Early in the morning you are the first on the ski slopes at Kreischberg or a surrounding ski area. You wedel, glide or carve the perfectly groomed slopes downhill. As a small and large slope flitzer you use the opportunity to expand your talents at our ski schools or to distinguish yourself in freestyle. 

Gently you draw your tracks along the mountain slopes, step by step you get closer to the peaks. Once you have arrived, the Niedere Tauern, Nockberge and Karawanken mountains lie at your feet. The warming tea strengthens you from the inside. Past snow-covered trees and idyllic winter scenery you whiz down into the valley. Refreshment such as a Murau wheat beer is already waiting for you.

A cozy winter afternoon

In the afternoon you take the opportunity to strengthen your body holistically. Slowly you glide over the white glittering carpet and make your loops on the perfectly groomed cross-country ski trails. You listen intently to the crunch of the snow under your skis and the sound of the wind in the trees. The movement makes you feel your body.

Thickly wrapped in your warm winter clothes armed with gloves, you set out to sled. Without much effort you reach your starting point. Casually you swing onto your toboggan and rapidly take the curves down into the valley. Your laughter can be heard far and wide.

A cozy winter day comes to an end

Once back at the hotel, you deserve a little rest. You warm up your frozen body with a small sauna session in the intimate relaxarium or take a pleasant bath. Suddenly you come across your favorite book that you brought with you. You have time! Curiosity overtakes you and you can hardly wait to find out the end of the story. As your stomach begins to growl, you tear yourself away. Only now do you realize how hungry you are. Today's recommendations are already waiting at your table with a small sweet nibble to finish. With a selected glass of wine or sip of beer you let the evening come to an end.

Satisfied and happy, you go to your room and are already excited about the next day.
