What perhaps might be a challenging ascent to the mountain summit is rewarded with a feeling of absolute freedom and satisfaction. Enjoy the tranquillity on the summit, without having to say a word, just enjoying the spectacular view of this cinematic experience of nature, letting your thoughts roam. Mountains change your perspective and many an idea or realisation has come about in this way. Give it a try!
The unique natural surroundings in Pillerseetal provide a hiking adventure whatever the season - from the mountain flowers in the spring, to golden autumn in October. Enjoy an Alpine summer and hike across lush Alpine pastures, where the cows and the sheep from the local farms spend their summer, until they return from the pasture back to the valley around the middle to the end of September, depending on the weather. Have you ever experienced an Alpine cattle drive? A wonderful tradition.
And even in winter you can head out on almost endless hikes away from the pistes, through the glistening snowy landscape.
If you are forging plans for the day over breakfast and are finding it difficult to choose between heading up the mountain or into the pool – or maybe both! Here with us in Naturhotel Kitzspitz anything is impossible. Be active or spend the day in the wellness area and relax. Being able to do everything, yet having to do nothing.
Hiking is also like wellness for body and mind. There is hardy any other sport where you can switch off as well as you can while hiking in the mountains. Hiking is THE sport for nature lovers. You can relax in the wellness area later on or be pampered during a beneficial treatment.
