The Alphotel is completely geared towards meeting the needs of families on holiday, for winter ski trips & summer stays.

The four-star Alphotel in Austria is surrounded by nature and perfect for a break with the kids.

It is located in the Kleinwalsertal ski area in the Allgäu Alps and is only accessible via Oberstdorf in Germany due to its position.

The small area has 5,000 inhabitants with 10,000 beds for visitors.

The area boasts a natural curling rink, offers horse-drawn sled rides, 50km of winter hiking trails, eight skiing and snowboard schools, as well as the chance to snow-shoe, ski tour, Nordic walk, telemark, and fatbike.

There are 50km of family-friendly winter hiking paths right on the hotel's doorstep, as is the toboggan lift for sledging and the ice-skating rink.
