A PEEK INSIDE THE MOST
UNCONVENTIONAL ALPINE LODGE IN AUSTRIA

We load our luggage into the cable car and take the journey through the mountains to 1,300m altitude and the Angerer Alm. The evening sun casts an enchanting glow across the mountains and the beauty of nature captivates. The Alpine lodge invites, welcomed with warm, classically Tyrolean hospitality we explore the rustic hut and revel in the authentic style before taking refuge in our charming room.

The rooms are simple, furnished with gingham bed linen, old country furniture and even bunk beds! There are no TVs, mini-bars or en-suite bathrooms; this Alpine hut is utterly authentic. Instead of your classic 5-star comforts the Angerer Alm offers luxuries such as stepping out onto the bedroom balcony and watching the sun rise from behind the Kitzbüheler Horn, or sitting by the fire with a good book, completely distanced from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Femininity reigns supreme

We are constantly impressed by the unassuming warmth owners Annemarie Foidl and her daughter Katharina exude. The formidable duo run the Angerer Alm with undiluted commitment, professional know-how and bags of charm. Annemarie’s great passion is viniculture, she is a Sommelier graduate and the President of the Austrian Association of Sommeliers. Her love on the subject is aptly demonstrated in her kingdom of wine with 6,000 bottles from 400 wineries around the world – as such one of the finest cellars in the Alpine region and perfectly complementing the sublime food at the Angerer Alm.

After a short rest we make our way to the restaurant, take our seats on old country chairs, and get ready to devour a multi-course meal. The menu gives us no clue as to what we will be served because the gourmet treats are created anew each and every day, providing us with a welcome element of surprise! The food does not disappoint! From the very first bite it is clear that the produce is super fresh, and it’s comforting to know that all ingredients have been sourced from well-known and respected suppliers.

CELLAR OF DREAMS

It is said that the Angerer Alm’s wine cellar is one of the best-stocked in the Alps, and, after finding a 1795 Madeira, we wholeheartedly agree! We spend the evening drinking fantastic wines and listening to top secret, insider information from Annemarie (we’re not ones to gossip… so you’ll need to have a chat with her yourself to get the inside scoop!). Despite the Angerer Alm being a haven for wine connoisseurs, the local brew, HuberBier and a wonderful range of fine schnapps made by small-scale Alpine distilleries, also impresses.

Insider Tip

The Angerer Alm is the ideal starting point for a variety of walks and hikes. Take an early morning stroll to a waterfall, watch the morning sun rise and listen to the birdsong. When you return to the lodge a hearty mountain breakfast of bircher muesli, homemade jams and cakes, and freshly prepared eggs await – it’s the perfect way to start the day!
