SkiingDid you know that the very first ski lift in Middle Europe was built 1907 at Bödele? Ever since then, skiing is a tradition and a must.
The Bödele ski area with its 9 lifts and 24km of well-prepared skiing slopes from beginner to advanced level is located just in front of our house and highly suited for families with children.
Right next door you will find a ski rental shop as well as the Ski School Bödele. Within a 2 km radius there are 10 further top skiing areas of our region – even Lech am Arlberg. By the way, the ski bus stops right in front of our hotel.
Cross-country skiingRight next to our hotel you will find the nature reserve area “Fohramoos”, through which two of the most beautiful cross-country skiing trails pass. Depending on your endurance you can choose between a 3 km and 9 km trail that guides you through untouched alpine nature and idyllic pastures.
For a special occasion you can also make use of the trails after sunset – a unique experience you will never forget.
SledgingSledging is by far one of the best ways to enjoy winter. Especially children love the great sledging hill we have in front of our house when meanwhile the adults try to warm up inside.
“Ready, set, go!” A family-friendly and natural sledging track will guide you through an idyllic hiking trail all the way to Ammenegg. By bus, you can easily return to the mountain pass and our hotel. For your convenience, you will also find a sledge hire outlet close by
Ski touringThe Bregenzerwald area is quite a paradise for ski tour lovers – no matter if beginner, intermediate or advanced. Before you start head-over-heels, we recommend for you to try our “own local mountain”, the Hochälpelekopf, which rewards you with one of the most beautiful viewing points over the Rhine Valley.
By the way, the Hochälpele Cottage House awaits you with its very unique mountain lodge magic in order for you to enjoy the descent to our hotel even at night.

The sunny plateau towards Brüggelekopf Mountain, the Lustenau cottage, the Bregenz cottage, the Wiesenfluh cottage and many more… And if you prefer taking a short trip, try the Meierei with its beautiful sun terrace just a few minutes away from our hotel.
Should you feel the need for some relaxation after all your sport activities, we can recommend numerous further activities, such as horse-drawn sleigh rides, museums and exhibitions, Christmas markets, Advent concerts. Should you wish to simply sit back and relax, you may enjoy a good book beside the crackling fireplace or just let yourself get inspired by the beautiful nature and alpine scenery.
