Christmas also belongs to Winter

Winter isn't just about sports. Pure winter enjoyment is also part of the plan here in Kaprun, above all else during the time around Christmas.

Kaprunerhof services in winter

Your skis can be stored for you in our secure ski check after a long day on the slopes. Every Saturday in winter, the professionals from the Ski Dome ski school come to our hotel and offer their services, for which you can sign up directly. From mid-December through to the beginning of April, a free ski shuttle brings you quickly and easily to the ski slopes. And after a day in the cold, wintry air? Warm yourself up in our sauna, relax in our hot tub, or drink a glass of herbal tea while snuggled in your cozy, soft hotel bed.
