Overview - hotel description - Hotel Hochfilzer description

It's hard work being the best. But hard work and dedication have been at the forefront of the Hochfilzer family's minds for generations - and from humble farmhouse beginnings we now have the magnificent AktivHotel Hochfilzer.

Located in the centre of Ellmau, the Hochfilzer is well known for its high standards, but not in a stuffy way - you'll be welcomed genuinely and treated like an old friend - Austrian style. The team have been around for a long time and are more than happy to go out of their way to make your stay as comfortable as possible.

Since this place is so popular, they've had to expand a little. There's the nearby AlpenPension Claudia, a cosy B&B down the road, and the Haus Garden annexe to the original hotel which is opposite. Both the Claudia and Haus Garden are nicely furnished in keeping with the main hotel - and you've still got full access to all the facilities at the Hochfilzer. 4* luxury at 3* prices.

Back in the Hochfilzer there's some serious style going on - the hotel has been furnished beautifully. There's been a thoughtful combination of the old and new. There's also the gorgeously modern wellness suite - the highlights being the panoramic sauna and hot tub that look over the Wilder Kaiser. There's an indoor swimming pool too.

Please note:

Haus Garden guests take all their meals in the main hotel.

Austrian twin beds
Austrian twin beds are very common in Central Europe. They’re simply one large bed frame containing two single mattresses, both with separate duvets and linen sets, that cannot be separated. Separate twin beds are less common and can often be head to head beds, rather than side by side, if they are available.

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...
