This package holiday to Hotel Hochfilzer in Ellmau, Austria departs Saturday 13th January 2018, for a 7 night stay on a "half board" board basis. A local tourist tax (Taxe de Sejour or Kurtaxe) is levied by many councils in European ski resorts. It varies by standard and type of accommodation and is age dependent, so not everyone is charged. It's not included in the basic price of your holiday and is usually paid locally. For reference, the average charged in winter 15/16 was between 50p and £2 per person, per night.

Varied terrain Part of the Ski Welt Austria’s fastest funicular railway

This achingly traditional Austrian village looks out to rolling hills, thick forests and those gorgeously rugged Wilder Kaiser peaks. It’s also part of the country’s biggest ski area and, if that wasn’t enough to shout from the rooftops, the transfer time’s less than an hour.

Set at the foot of the Wilder Kaiser Mountain range, Ellmau has a small population and so much classic Austrian charm that you’re unlikely to get through the week without donning Lederhosen or a dirndl... The village is built of the sturdy wood and stone structures you only find in the mountains, made picture-perfect by the central parish church. It’s not all about the aesthetics - you’ll find some excellent eateries, affordable après ski, and good quality chalets, hotels and apartments of all shapes, sizes ...
The resort has an excellent lift system connecting to the neighbouring villages of Going and Scheffau. It really comes into its own for beginners: children’s lessons take place in ‘Kinderland’ (next to the ski school office on Alte Straße 3) which is kitted out with magic carpets, snow plough area and mini slaloms. You’ll find a range of short, gentle blues at the bottom of the mountain leading down into Ellmau and Going, well protected and separate from the rest of the ski area. #100b from Astberg is a nic...
The local après is low key but merry -with Pub 66 easily winning the gong for most popular drink spot (trust us, after a few sherries the karaoke here starts looking a lot more appealing..!). Living up to Austria’s reputation for stein-swinging après, Ötzi is a fantastic nightclub where you’ll find live music, DJ’s and enough drink to keep the whole of Ellmau happy. If you’re in the mood to warm up and relax, we love the Bettina - a gorgeous mountainside café in the perfect location for a family pit st...

"Excellent, would return"

We were upgraded to the Hochfilzer from the Pension Claudia, overall it was a great hotel and exactly what we wanted, I’d stay here again. Some of the guests including us were unwell during the week (nothing to do with the food here, think someone brought a bug over) but the staff handled it well and apart from that everything was good. The food was excellent – traditional Austrian fare. Our room was good apart from the Austrian thing of making a double out of two singles. We found the mattress incredibly hard but when we mentioned it half way through the week they provided us with a mattress topper. The hotel has a great location where you can reach the pistes on a ten minute bus ride.
