Hotel Goldener Berg

Hotel Goldener Berg directly situated next to the ski slope in Oberlech, the sunny plateau.

Winter at the Goldener Berg means, of course, ski in - ski out. From November, the Arlberg region slowly starts into the winter season. Free of crowds, right in front of the hotel you may put on your skis and off you go - that's been the Golden Mountain for over 100 years.

But the same goes for exercise in winter nature without skis or boards! Starting directly at the hotel you will find many kilometers of beautiful hiking trails, cross-country skiing trails or Nordic walking as well as jogging trails, which are perfectly prepared every day. These are all sports in beautiful nature, which can be learned quickly and bring a lot of joy to the heart. Likewise, the mountain panorama covered in snow, around the Hotel Goldener Berg, is a perfect backdrop for mediation, alpine bathing, hearts and tidal walks.

Time for yourself, arrive at your roots, do everything that is good for you: plant based alpine cuisine, with fresh and consciously prepared menus. The credo is: everything can, nothing must: traditionally prepared dishes, alkaline, ketogenic, vegan and vegetarian vitamin bombs that guarantee a lot of pleasure, fine drops from one of the largest wine cellars in Austria.

Colorful - cozy boho styled rooms in all sizes and price ranges, the Alpine Spa with changing therapists, coaches and yogis to get the energy flowing again, sports and guided body movements on all levels. Time, all for yourself, free, healthy and mindful.

Oberlech is a place of power. You can measure this in Bovis - but if you take a moment of attention when you arrive, you will feel this power in every cell of your body. Daniela Pfefferkorn, hostess of the Golden Mountain, puts the vacation under the special theme of "Mountain Selfcare". It is about health, strengthening the immune system and being at one with body and mind. Bring awareness and mindfulness into your everyday life and enjoy the wonderful alpine tranquility!

A winter day away from the ski slopes might look like this:

The sun tickles you awake, the first glimpse falls on the deep snow-covered peaks around the Golden Mountain. Let your body gently awaken with a yoga session. Enjoy the well balanced breakfast with products from local farmers we trust in the new panorama restaurant with a brilliant view into the white splendor. Then we participate with warm clothes at one of the guided tours into the magnificent nature that surrounds us. Afterwards it’s ime to lie in the sun and read a good book. Admire the breathtaking view over the mountains and the vastness - the thoughts pull, the head is empty - relieved. Whether it should be another soothing treatment of whatever kind in the Alpine Spa or just indulge in the water in the whirlpool surrounded by the snow - you decide. Later you have the choice in one of our four restaurants to end the day with culinary highlights of all kinds.

Winter at the Golden Energy Mountain is so much more - vacation and arriving at yourself at its best. We look forward to seeing you!
