You have come to the right place, because...
We love sports just as much as you do

That’s why in our rooms we have more than enough storage space for your equipment. In addition, we have a ski and bike test centre that includes rentals, courses, a workbench and sports lockers – and great deals for athletes, too!

Our environment is important to us

We are not only the first certified passive (zero-energy) hotel in Europe, but we are also climate neutral. That is truly unique in the hotel industry. However, for us, it’s simply a matter of course!

We have the most beautiful mountains

The Explorer Hotels are situated in 6 of the top alpine regions. In Germany in Oberstdorf, near Neuschwanstein and in Berchtesgaden; in Austria in Montafon, in Kitzbühel, in Zillertal and in Ötztal.

You can really relax here

Our beds are extremely comfortable, the rooms are spacious and the mountain view is invigorating. The absolute relaxation highlight is our sports spa, which includes a sauna, steam bath, infra-red cabin and a fitness room.

You can count on us

Everything we do, we do with passion and the highest level of commitment. For us, quality is not just a buzzword! We promise that you’ll always receive the best available rate and that you will meet Explorer Buddies who will be happy to advise you and who are just as crazy about sports as you.
