Log cabin atmosphere meets modernity: chalet and alpine lodge villages in Tirol

Hikers, mountaineers and skiers savour Tirol’s healthy air not only whilst out and about in the natural landscapes, but also when they return to their welcoming accommodation in the evening: Mountain lodges and chalets exude the scent of freshly chopped timber and convey that imitable feeling of alpine lifestyle.

Rustic, tasteful or exclusive – the lodges and chalets on Tirol’s alpine pastures and mountain slopes are as varied as the travellers who take up quarters there. They all, however, have one thing in common; a constant thread of affinity with the region. Many local timbers are used to create the furniture and traditional patterns can be found in the fabrics and decor. Overnight stays here are a highlight of any trip to Tirol.

A natural bedroom crafted entirely from Swiss stone pine wood – nights can only be restful in such ambience. Days spent in the Gletscher Chalets in Upper Stubaital, however, are equally relaxing. The lodges, five in total, are constructed almost entirely from wood and ooze home-from-home cosiness. Sophisticated comforts such as a Finnish outdoor sauna, modern kitchen, luxury bathroom and snuggle corner in the living area round off this lavish accommodation. Those lucky enough to stay in the chalet with views of the glacier, will consider themselves to be very fortunate.

Almdorf Fallerschein is Tirol’s largest alpine village, with around 40 log cabins. Visitors are continually impressed by the panorama of alpine meadows, mountain streams, steep slopes, dairy and log cabins. The Alp is also home to a „Sennerstüberl – Dairy Lounge“, a worthwhile day trip destination, whatever the weather. The proprietor conjures up Tirolean specialities on a traditional wood-fired oven, the ingredients for which come predominantly from their own farm. Furthermore, Fallerschein is the ideal starting point for extensive mountain hikes.
