We are beach holiday types at Travel+Style—tend to think winter is good only for long evenings by crackling fire with hot lemon tea and a blanket. All the same, snow fun is good fun, and one of the best places to enjoy it is Saalbach-Hinterglemm, the home of Wiesergut.
The beautiful valley of Hinterglemm lies over a thousand metres above sea level within the skiing and hiking area called Skicircus Saalbach-Hinterglemm Leogang. The whole thing makes up for its unpronounceable name with the picturesque Alpine landscapes—and the superbly designed Wiesergut.
Minimal and warm
The resort comprises converted manor house and contemporary concrete-and-glass Garden Suites with floor-to-ceiling windows, offering direct access to ski slopes. The white four-storey manor house towers above them, its façade minimal and sharp.
While the manor suites match the outer aesthetic of the big house, the pavilions below are darker and somewhat more rustic, with wood panelling on the ceiling and stone panels on the walls.
All are sleek yet warm, constructed from wood, stone and steel and kept in monochrome earthy palettes, with custom-made furniture to match—and lots of space and light.
Luxury with heritage
The Wiesergut hotel belongs to a family that owned the plot of land that the hotel stands upon since 14th century, with the first guest house opened here some two generations ago.
Today the hotel promises a unique hospitality experience that comes from the mix of age-old traditions and contemporary innovation.
