Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Vitallandhotel Schermer is Westendorf’s stand out hotel. You’ll have an attractive spa, sauna, steam room and relaxation area.  Take a dip in the indoor-outdoor pool for spectacular views of the mountains as you swim – perfect on a crisp winter’s evening. The hotel is located halfway between the main village gondola and the nursery slopes, so is an ideal base for both experienced skiers and snowboarders and learners.  

You’ll notice the great attention to detail. The lovingly prepared food is made with local produce wherever possible, including milk, yoghurt and cheese from the village dairy or from the Schermer Family’s own farm.  Hotel owners Jakob and Andrea Schermer can be found working in the hotel every day, which lends a friendly, family feel to this luxury hotel.  Children are well catered looked after and non-skiers will also find plenty to do.

 The hotel has its own programme of weekly events (some payable) that includes everything from exercise classes and guided walks to an invitation to the Schermer’s wine cellar for a wine tasting with owner Jakob.

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).
