Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

If you’re after never-ending views and Austrian charm then you’ll like Hotel Briem. Once you step through the door you feel you are in the real Austria. Staff members wearing classic Austrian dress welcome you.

The views will make you fall in love with the wide Brixen valley.  Situated on the road that leads down to the railway station, Hotel Briem is away from the busy central area - meaning stunning, uninterrupted views of the Brixen Valley in both directions – but it’s still only a 350m walk or an easy ski bus ride to Westendorf centre, the nursery slopes or the main gondola.

The great facilities, include a modern spa with sauna, steam room and infrared cabin - great for loosening up after a day on the slopes. You’ll enjoy the homely feeling, hearty breakfast and Tirolean character.  The hotel bar provides a cosy setting for an after-dinner drink.

Westendorf

In fact Westendorf, quiet and attractive retreat that it is, actually enjoys access to two vast ski areas – SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser-Brixental area and Kitzbühel. Situated on an open plateau in the wide Brixen valley this small, pretty Tyrolean village is a very family friendly resort, with the nursery slopes directly beside the village centre and an excellent children’s programme provided by the ski school. But the resort also has some unexpectedly challenging slopes to get your teeth into too on the tree-lined runs  above the village.  A gondola links Westendorf with Brixen and the rest of the slopes of the SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser-Brixental area (a total of nine resorts) with a huge variety of skiing for both intermediate and advanced skiers. Access to the Kitzbühel ski area, with a further 234km of pistes, is via the Ki-West gondola (Super Ski Card required for this).
