Wine and skiing enjoyment
Culinary delights with skiing in the Hochkönig region
Skiing and wining & dining like a king
Austria's greatest ski paradise also has outstanding things to offer when it comes to the pleasures of eating and drinking. The mountain lodges in Ski amadé win over their guests with their high quality and comfortable atmosphere. Some years ago, working with its partner Österreich Wein Marketing (ÖWM), Ski amadé launched an initiative to put the focus on pleasure while skiing. This initiative brings wine culture into the mountain lodges and offers you the opportunity to taste outstanding wines.
In all partner lodges, you can choose your favourite wine from a wide range and drink it with a fine meal, or relax and enjoy your glass on the sunny terrace. Those who would like to find out more about Austrian wine culture will be very well informed at the special mountain lodges.
As part of the ski and wine enjoyment week, there is another highlight when it comes to skiing & wine on 19.03.202 in Mühlbach am Hochkönig: the Hochkönig gondolas. As the name implies, while riding the 8-person Kings Cab gondola, you can taste and enjoy various wines from 10 vineyards and wine growers. The exceptional ambiance, the view of the Hochkönig, and the excellent wines will make this day one that you won’t soon forget.
- On 19.03.2020 from 11:00 am - 4:00 pm
- Red, white, and sparkling wines from over 10 vineyards in Austria await you on the gondolas
- Tickets available at the ticket offices of the Hochkönig lifts and at [email protected]
During the ski and wine enjoyment weeks, one culinary event joins the next. At the GONDEL.HUT.EJOYMENT you can expect a regional 5-course menu including wine accompaniment in an exceptional atmosphere.
More information can be found here.
Gourmets can ski from hut to hut and try the wonderful local delicacies. At 29 ski huts in whole Ski amadé you can discover, taste and of course buy some strong cheese, country bacon, salami, farmhouse bread and many other treats. The highest farmer's market in the Alps really lives up to its name, with market stands, for example, on the Dachstein glacier or in the Panoramic Dome in Sportgastein at 2,700 meters above sea level! A real highlight of the ski and wine gourmet week from the 16th to the 21st of March 2020.
The market visitor on skis can also even have a tasting at some stalls: Blattlkrapfen with sauerkraut, perhaps, or real Pinzgauer Kasnocken.
A drive-in farmers’ market. And so one samples one’s way through the specialities of the region – from savoury to sweet and from heavily to lightly seasoned.
