For many, the Almhof Schneider is more than just a hotel… It has been home to the family since 1451.
The Hotel Almhof Schneider is one of the rare family owned and – run 5*****S winter sport hotels in the world.
Spanning four generations, it has been in the family since 1451. The Almhof Schneider has accommodated guests from all over the world who are made to feel at home and have become regular visitors returning year after year. Whilst the hotel has grown and embraces a discreet luxury, one still feels that it is a family business where the sense of being a friend of the family is very much alive.
The resorts convenient position in the village, slightly off the main road and at the foot of the beautiful Schlegelkopf Mountain, allows guests to spend their vacation in peace, meander into the center, put their skis outside the front door and enjoy all sporting facilities within close range.
Indulging its guests is a tradition at the Almhof Schneider. Their focus is on the thoughtful care of guests and serving a refined, contemporary Austrian cuisine. Both kitchen and cellar trust selected quality producers, using only the best locally sourced ingredients. In addition to the award-winning hotel dining room, the two restaurants—the opulent Wunderkammer for a more private experience, and the casual yet elegant Restaurant im Almhof Schneider—meet different expectations. Both insist on the charm of Alpine simplicity, impeccable and attentive service, and dining fine enough to attract discerning locals alongside hotel guests, again and again. The matching wine menu, compiled by “Sommelier of the year 2018” Josef Neulinger shows an extraordinary breadth and width – so much so that FINE WINE London awarded it with 3*** as one of only three Austrian wine menus.
For younger children, a spacious playroom with all-day care is packed with dress-up clothes, games, and other activities and keeps the most curious kids happy, busy, and always attended to. Teenagers can hang out in a vast, somewhat hidden space with huge pouf seats, and a Playstation room. At the end of a day on the slopes or enjoying Lech, children don’t have to be bored by their parents’ long dinners; Almhof offers a children’s table in the library where kids can meet each other, eat at their own pace, and just be kids.
The New Almhof Spa is built around unhurriedness and lingering.
With its brand new Spa the Almhof Schneider now lives up to the highest expectation of its loyal international crowd. Deeply based in tradition the inspiration for the concept of the new Spa is more drawn from antiquity and its wealth of knowledge and experience in bathing than from trends of recent decades. After bathing, unwind in the relaxation room or fireplace salon, where you can curl up on a pillowy couch as crackling flames emit enveloping warmth. In addition to the classic bathing facilities, our spa is now equipped with a fitness room and a room for yoga, Pilates, Antara, TRX, and much more. In the cosmetic room, enjoy the Biologique Recherche methodology’s facial methods and detoxifying body care treatments – as well as goodies from Nectarome and Royal Fern. Aesop products are used throughout the spa, beginning with Austria’s first Aesop kiosk at its entrance.
