My Hotel Hartenfels: a Perfect Stay in the Tyrolean Alps for a Passionate Skier

This small, cosy hotel with bright, country-style rooms won our hearts immediately. With its comfy beds, delicious 4-course dinners and homely atmosphere, it’s the perfect place to rest after skiing in winter, or hiking and exploring the Alpine beauty in summer. Its location - 5 minutes by free shuttle bus from noisy, fashionable Lech Zurs in a picturesque little village called Zug - is another plus.

Lift leading to the mountain

There is one thing about this hotel that few hotels can compete with – you can ski in and out, as Hotel Hartenfels is located just a few hundred metres from the ski lifts. You simply put on your ski boots and skis in the cloakroom at the hotel and head straight to the slopes!

This peaceful hotel overlooking the mountains features a traditional sauna, a spacious garden with a terrace, and a rustic restaurant serving hearty regional specialties accompanied by a large variety of wines and schnapps. Tasty dishes from the Arlberg region are served with immaculate attention to every detail. At breakfast, before heading to the slopes, you receive the new dinner menu for that day with the option to change anything you don’t like.

The hotel's interior is immaculate and always fresh as the hotel undergoes a refurbishment twice a year. You can feel that it is well looked after. Built 30 years ago, it has belonged to just one family, and the owner, Michael, still serves dinner, welcomes guests at the reception and is always on hand to give useful advice. You feel more like a guest at his home, not at a hotel.

I fell in love with traveling much earlier than I fell in love with my first man. And I'm still faithful to that love (But I have exchanged some men since my first one). I have never had a reason to regret my passion. I constantly dream of going further, it gives me indescribable emotions and meaning to my life.
