Vorarlberg has a specially soft spot for children. We want them to feel completely at home in their hotel, which means having plenty of room to play and enjoy themsleves. The Family Club affiliates undertake to provide special facilities, programmes and prices for families.
Harmony is best described as a state of complete accord with oneself and one´s surroundings. In Vorarlberg, there is no defence against harmony, it is a natural condition. Relax and unwind. Alone, with your partner or your family. The best place to do so is in a meadow. And that´s exactly where harmony is.
There is no need to climb above the timberline just to view the world from a different perspective. A little hike, a friendly chat with a farmer or innkeeper, down in one of Vorarlberg´s many valleys, is enough. That´s where you find the most prescious thing in the world: inner peace.
Alpine skiing is, of course, not the only winter pastime in Vorarlberg. Almost 800 km of cross-country trails are spread throughout the province.

And later on you can enjoy the high life and friendly toghetherness during après-ski.
