The Sporthotel Austria is a cosy and traditional hotel with modern touches - a perfect Alpine retreat with an at-home feel and relaxed atmosphere thanks to the friendly staff and warm welcome.

Enjoy a tranquil location that's just a few minutes walk to the lifts, making it easy to access the mountain walking trails. It's also an easy stroll to the town centre, where there are shops, cafes, restaurants, and bars to enjoy.

A pool, a spa, and a cosy bar

The loungers in the hotel's pretty garden are the perfect place to enjoy the quiet and soak up some mountain sun. If you're feeling energetic, then head to the well-equipped gym or swim a few lengths in the indoor pool. Tired legs after a day of exploring? In that case a soothing session in the sauna should do the trick.

There's a cosy bar and lounge where you can sit with a quiet drink, and the restaurant serves excellent meals so you'll be well refuelled - food tends to be traditional Austrian dishes, cooked using local produce.

St. Johann

This charming little market town set in the wide sunny valley close to Kitzbühel is full of Austrian traditions with a Baroque twin spire church and pretty town square filled with quaint cafés that play host to regular festivals and celebrations throughout the summer. There are plenty of shops and restaurants - guests enjoy the ‘Huber Bräu’ local Brewery with its very own tower, for traditional cuisine and views. The town is surrounded by miles of gentle walking and cycling paths, including riverside and valley walks to Kitzbühel, as well as more challenging routes up to higher peaks - some accessible by gondola. The bus and train links are excellent and its central location between Innsbruck and Salzburg make it a great base for sightseeing.
