Situated at an altitude of 1675 metres above sea level, the Hochtannberg pass is where the Arlberg, Allgäu, Bregenzerwald and Lech Valley regions all meet. For over 300 years a house has occupied the lonely spot where the Adler now stands. It wasn’t until recent years that the lifts and cable cars surrounding it were built to keep it company.
In December 2013 another decisive step was taken: the introduction of the modern Auenfeld Jet, which provides a valuable connecting service linking us to the Arlberg ski areas of Lech Zürs Warth Schröcken. This is brilliant news for our guests! Now you can stay in the heart of the Warth-Schröcken ski area, boasting one of the best snow records anywhere, and be a hop, skip and a jump away from the extensive Ski-Arlberg complex, where a total of 94 lifts and cable cars, 340 kilometres of piste and an unsurpassed selection of off-piste and deep snow possibilities are all yours for the asking!
As if that were not enough, the Adler also commands unrestricted access to a wealth of fabulous cross-country ski circuits and walking tracks from Warth to the Körber lake. And if you fancy a change from the huge Arlberg winter sports arena, and want to explore the unspoilt mountain scenery on touring skis or snow shoes, this is the place! Right behind the hotel Adler is the Widderstein, an amazing ski area with a huge selection of off-piste tours. Our hotelier, Markus, who is also a mountain guide and ski instructor, knows the area like the back of his hand, and offers a free weekly „taster“ ski tour for hotel guests.
Over the years, the Adler has developed from a simple mountain hut into a small hotel. But it isn’t the number of stars, restaurant ratings or luxury items that define the character of the Adler. Our hotel still retains its original atmosphere of the traditional mountain hut and its former inhabitants. We have retained the charm of the ancient parlour and developed a clever combination of old buildings and modern architectural style: open fireplaces co-exist with solar energy; natural stone walls with free Wifi. We offer sparkling family apartments alongside classic functional hotel rooms; our food and wine are of a standard so good as to ensure many guests return year after year clamouring for more! We don’t pretend to be a spa hotel, although we do have an extensive new sauna complex which really takes some beating; we are not a dedicated baby hotel, but we welcome families on winter sports holidays; we do not provide a party location, but we take pride in offering a tasteful ambience for our adult guests. For many people it’s the perfect choice – but it’s not for everyone!
