If flying via Salzburg, why not add on a couple of nights to explore this famous city?
Cross-country skiing

With a free ski bus linking the five villages – St Jakob, Hochfilzen, St Ulrich, Waidring and Fieberbrunn – the opportunities for cross-country skiing are endless. St Jakob itself takes centre stage, with trails passing the front door of the hotel (next to which is the ski school). More advanced trails start from nearby Fieberbrunn, while Hochfilzen – host for many World Cup races – has trails along the valley, around Lake Wiesensee and through alpine meadows. In total, 110 kilometres of trails crisscross the valley.

Cross-country skiing

Downhill skiing

Access to downhill pistes is either behind the hotel, where there are some easy runs on the Buchensteinwand hill for beginners and families, or via the ski bus to Waidring and Fieberbrunn at either end of the valley – each has a good choice of pistes for all abilities, with Fieberbrunn now linked to the extensive Saalbach Hinterglemm ski area.

Downhill skiing

Winter walking

There is a network of trails for winter walking between the villages – a particularly beautiful one leads along the valley passing Lake Piller (Pillersee), from where you can catch the bus back to St Jakob. Another fine route leads up to the hut at Tennalm, from where there are splendid views over St Jakob and across towards Fieberbrunn.

Please note that, although the documentation we send you for your holiday includes suggestions as to the most rewarding walks, we do not provide detailed route notes – the designated winter walking routes are well signposted.

Taking in the views

Whether you are skiing or walking, you might choose to stop for a leisurely lunch in one of the neighbouring villages, though you might prefer to return to the hotel, where a light lunch is included in the restaurant's winter garden, with views over the pistes.

A Mess for the Emperor
When 'Sisi', wife of Austrian Emperor Franz Josef I, rejected a newly created dessert because it looked too messy, her husband had no such doubts! In fact, he loved it so much that it became a firm favourite and was even named after him. Read how to make it here >
