Local area

An introduction to the area

Set in verdant and gentle countryside, Weidach is a typical Tirolean village and one of the 24 hamlets in the 16km long Leutasch Valley. On many days we can walk straight from the hotel along the walking trails that explore the plateau.  

There are 150km of well-groomed walking trails criss-crossing the plateau. With its many restaurants and leisure faculties, you are ensured a warm welcome at every turn.

An ideal place to buy souvenirs and gifts.From Seefeld you could take the funicular ride up the mountain to Rosshutte or a horse and carriage ride to local attractions. Also at Seefeld, there is the large indoor and open-air (heated) pool and leisure complex, tennis courts and the Wildmoos Plateau Golf Course.

Weidach - In Weidach the Alpenbad is a short walk away with its modern leisure pool facilities. You can use the free mountain bikes from the hotel or have a Nordic Walking lesson from the hotel.

Mittenwald – This is an excellent place to visit with shops and cafés and a cable car to the mountain top. Known for house paintings and its violin museum, you can get a direct bus from Weidach with an additional €1.90 to the bus pass.

It offers excellent shopping and a wide selection of restaurants.

Service review:

We were on the self guided walking holiday and really appreciated the 5 suggested walking routes with photos, in larger print, giving us useful additional information along with the map which was sent in advance. We enjoyed these walks in a very beautiful part of Austria.

Product review:

The accommodation and food at the hotel Kristall were high quality but it was the welcome and hospitality throughout the week from Daniel and his family that made this holiday special.
