Skiing, snowboarding, ski tours, cross-country skiing, tobogganing, ice skating – pure winter experience in the Villach region of Carinthia. First time you can get the Winter-Kärnten-Card with a lot of offers.
- Skiing: Fun for the whole family: with its 17 ski lifts, 42km of pistes, 15km of ski routes and its Kids’ Snow-Park – the Gerlitzen Alpe simply offers a guarantee of snow: thanks to state-of-the-art artificial snow machine technology, here on the south-facing side of the Alps you can already ski from 3rd December and right through until the beginning of April.
Our tip: As a guest of the hotel you get 20% off your ski pass and ski-school lessons (just ask our hotel reception staff about it). The free ski-bus will pick you up daily at 09:09 right from our hotel and take you to the Kanzelbahn valley-station. For the return journey, the shuttle-bus will be available at 15:00 for you and, of course, again free-of-charge.
- Cross-country-skiing: Run at the entrance to the Dobratsch Nature Park can vary pretty much at random in terms of length and altitude profile. Thanks to different degrees of difficulty it facilitates perfect endurance training for sports professionals. This route is not just intended for the professionals, however; amateurs, beginners and children can also get to know the fascination of exercising on cross-country-skiing.
- Ice-Skating: We recommend the ice rink in the town centre in front of Villach’s town hall. You can walk there square from the hotel in about five minutes. There, there is nothing to stop you ice-skating for free. No ice-skates with you? No problem, they can be borrowed on-site.
- Hot springs: Relax, lie back and enjoy the warm thermal water. What’s more, our guests also benefit from a reduction of 10% on all services at the Kärnten Therme.
