This charming hotel stands in an open sunny position in the Gail valley and is busy both summer and winter. In summer its proximity to the Presseggersee draws guests for the beaches, restaurants and adventure park on the shores of the lake, the wonderful scenery, golf, mountain walking, the local cycle paths plus the many sporting opportunities on offer. In winter, the guests come for the snow-sure Nassfeld Ski Arena which is about 10 minutes away by car. Alternatively, the free ski buses stop almost opposite the hotel. Crosscountry skiing is available in the floor of the valley and skating on both the Presseggersee and Weißensee.
