The hotel is a 3 to 4 minute walk from the Maibrunn Cable Car, but the ski bus stops just outside if you want to spare your legs. The hotel also has an an inhouse ski instructor.

This has a 4,500 m² spa area with 5 thermal pools, an indoor pool, an outdoor pool (not always open in the winter), a hot tub, a salt-water pool with underwater music and meditation areas, and a sauna pool.
