The romantic Christmas comedy "Your Christmas or Mine" starring Cora Kirk (Hayley Taylor) and Asa Butterfield (James Hughes) has been continued on Prime Video since December 2023. This time, Christmas doesn't take them to each other's parents' houses but to a ski vacation in Tyrol, along with their families. The filming took place in April and May in the Ötztal region, and we've gathered the exact locations for you.

When Hayley and James go on a trip, chaos is inevitable. And so, in the second part of the Christmas comedy, a lot goes awry: from the wrong hotel to the mistaken engagement ring, you can look forward to plenty of laughs. Fortunately, at least the families boarded the right airplane!

Innsbruck Airport

As seen in the film, the families land at Innsbruck Airport. From here, you have a magnificent view of Innsbruck's local mountains, such as the Patscherkofel and the Nordkette, as well as the Nockspitze and Rangger Köpfl west of the state capital. The approach over the Inntal and the backdrop of the landing and takeoff runway are guaranteed to be among the most beautiful worldwide! By the way, pilots wishing to access the runway here must undergo special training due to Innsbruck's topography.

Experience it yourself

Innsbruck Airport is served several times a week by many European airlines, especially from Vienna, London, Amsterdam, Eindhoven, Rotterdam, and Frankfurt. From here, all Tyrolean valleys are easily accessible by public transport, and many accommodations even offer a shuttle service to the hotel. If flying is not your preference, you can visit the "Fly Inn" restaurant and enjoy coffee, cake, or international cuisine while watching planes take off and land.

Hotel Schafberg

What a mix-up! Instead of the budget-friendly Bergschaf Hotel, the Taylor family ends up at the Schafberg Hotel and can hardly believe their luck. In reality, the hotel is a 4-star superior hotel called Schöne Aussicht. The luxury hotel promises a vacation at the highest level. Situated at an altitude of 2,090 meters and directly on the slopes of the Sölden-Hochsölden ski area, it combines modern design and exceptional quality. And because it's so beautiful, all hotel scenes were shot here: from the rooms to the wellness area, outdoor pool, Sky Bar, and restaurant.

Experience it yourself

The Schöne Aussicht Hotel is located in Hochsölden and has a long tradition as a host: the first beds were rented here in 1926 when it was still called Hamrachalpe. Instead of straw beds, you now sleep in modernly furnished rooms that offer everything you could wish for in a vacation room. After a day of skiing, you can relax in the large spa area, infinity pool, or cigar lounge. The Schöne Aussicht Hotel is an adults-only hotel. If you want to go location hunting with children in Hochsölden and don't want to forgo luxury, you can stay in the neighboring 4-star superior Enzian Hotel, where the film crew was also accommodated.

Hotel Bergschaf

The Hughes family, unfortunately, had less luck as their shuttle did not stop at the luxury hotel but at an old stable – which they had to share with a ram named Klaus. One thing is for sure: accommodation at this level is unknown throughout Tyrol! In reality, the Bergschaf Hotel is the hay barn of a (year-round inhabited) farmhouse near Heiligkreuz in the Venter Valley. You can't visit it, as it is privately owned, and the owner does not rent out rooms (no, not even the stable).

Experience it yourself

Even though the farm itself cannot be visited, you can explore the surrounding area. The Venter Valley is a side valley of the Ötztal, where the Ötztaler Ache also originates. At the end of the valley is the well-known mountaineering village of Vent, from where you can not only admire but also climb numerous peaks.

If you fancy sleeping on a farm, it's best to stay at one of the Tyrolean "Urlaub am Bauernhof" (Holiday on the Farm) establishments. However, even here, you sleep in proper rooms with real beds – but at least you can help with haymaking or in the stable if you wish.

On the Ski Slopes

Breathtaking panorama, snow as far as the eye can see, and accommodation right on the slopes – a ski vacation can hardly get any better, right? Indeed, the Schöne Aussicht Hotel (alias Schafberg) is directly on the slopes of the Sölden-Hochsölden ski area, where scenes were also shot – specifically, on slopes No. 15, No. 19, and No. 20, accessed by the Rotkogelbahn. The cable car, along with the valley station, gondolas, and mountain station, can be seen in the film as well. The bench where James would have almost revealed his planned year in Los Angeles to Hayley is only three lift rides away, near the Schwarzkogl Restaurant. However, this bench was only set up as a prop and was dismantled after filming – but the panorama is still there.

Experience it yourself

Due to its snow reliability, the Sölden-Hochsölden ski area opens in autumn, as it includes no less than three 3,000-meter peaks. Covering a total area of 429 hectares, it offers 144 kilometers of slopes for every skill level. If you want to follow in Haley and James' footsteps, take the Rotkogelbahn to the mountain station. To visit the rest bench, cross to the Silberbrünnl chairlift and then take the single-pointer lift. By the way, the conversation the families had about James Bond is not far-fetched: parts of "Spectre" were actually filmed here, and the "007 Elements" experience informs about the shooting of the classic.

A small tip on the side: If, like Haley, you're not familiar with skiing, it's best to book a ski course or a private lesson – it will definitely make the day on the slopes more enjoyable!

In Tyrol, on December 6th, St. Nicholas visits the children and brings them a sack of nuts, mandarins, and chocolate – sometimes even small gifts. He is accompanied by the Krampus, who threatens naughty children with a switch but doesn't actually harm them. However, Krampus parades and Perchten processions can get wild – and even if you might get a switch hit here and there, it's a spectacle that you should definitely experience.

Christmas in Tyrol is traditionally celebrated on the evening of December 24th – after the children return from the Mette, the candles on the Christmas tree are already lit. Gifts in this region are brought by the Christkind.
