dasMAX, Seefeld, Austria: Set off on new adventures
After what’s happened over the last 12 months, many people are longing for new experiences and a bit of an escape from the norm. Thank goodness the dasMAX in Seefeld is expecting us – for a holiday just how we like it.
A holiday for some means hours spent chilling out by the pool, while for others it’s a test of physical endurance in the great outdoors. At least at the dasMAX in Seefeld, it doesn’t matter what it is we’re looking for after the year we’ve just had – the team will find something for everyone, whether you’re a wellness fanatic or an adrenaline junkie.
Off to the spa
Those who prefer to take it easy and just want to sleep in will be able to have breakfast at the dasMAX Bistro later than normal – in the afternoon, if that’s how you feel. How about tucking into the “Max und Resi” – yoghurt served with granola and berries? Washed down with an espresso or a cup of tea, you’ll be sure of a slow start to the day.
Gently woken up and feeling fortified, you can then make your way to the rooftop relaxation area for the ultimate chill-out. After reclining in the sauna, the stylish loungers beckon so you can rest a while longer before you head to the roof terrace to breathe the pure alpine air in and out, in and out… Meditative view over Seefeld included. Later on, during a walk through the small yet perfectly formed town at 1,200 meters above sea level, you’ll encounter a refreshing mix of locals and tourists.
Off to get active
But Seefeld isn’t just the perfect location for a stroll and relaxation – the region also has a lot to offer when it comes to sports. In addition to the ski slopes in the winter, there are many other facilities available, most of which were built for the Olympic Games or one of the many other world championships that have been held here.
In spring, you simply can’t miss out on the many scenic hikes in the surrounding mountains, or you can just head straight for the summit by climbing up the via ferrata. And that’s only scratching the surface. The diverse range of sporting facilities in the Olympic region is guaranteed to set the pulse of all active visitors racing, making it that much easier for the dasMAX team to find just the right thing for everyone: it doesn’t usually take more than a quick glance in one of the hotel’s local guides.
Off on a different adventure
If you want to find out more about Seefeld and be able to share tips about a secret place or two after your holiday, you’ll be best off starting right in the town centre with a carriage ride. While the powerful horses set the pace, the driver will share stories about the local area. Animal lovers that like to get up close will get their money’s worth on an alpaca hike. In Seefeld itself, there’s a special organic farm that breeds the fluffy and trusting animals from the Andes, and offers hikes accompanied by alpacas through the Seefeld forest.
If this or any other adventure in the Seefeld Olympic region takes your fancy, you’ll definitely find the dasMAX is one of the best starting points for your next holiday – the best place for you to holiday your way.
