The Elisabeth is a great value choice in the heart of Mayrhofen. There are no frills here, just a warm welcome and relaxed and cosy atmosphere. The rooms are all a good size and comfortable, while the breakfast will more than fuel you up for the day ahead.

 

Access to the resort shops, restaurants and bars is easy as you're just off the main high street. It's only a few minutes walk to both the Penken and Ahorn gondolas and equipment hire shop too.

About the resort

Mayrhofen has a well-deserved reputation for being a great all-rounder. The slopes are seemingly endless (over 500kms in the area) as is the nightlife, the lift system is quick, the terrain is diverse and there really is something for everyone.

 

The village is typically Austrian with multi-coloured buildings running along the largely car-free resort centre. You'll soon find a bar that suits your mood. The range goes from full on Jaeger-bombing to laid-back traditional oompah and everything in-between.

 

 

Don't miss a visit to the White Lounge ice bar on the Ahorn mountain. Pull up an ice seat at an ice table in the crazily lit bar, or head out to the sea of sun-loungers with your drink and work on removing your goggle tan.

 

The resort also plays host to some pretty big events. The Altitude Comedy Festival sees top comedy acts (John Bishop, Sean Lock, Marcus Brigstocke etc) fighting it out for laughs on and off the slopes. Snowbombing music festival is held in various venues and hotels in Mayrhofen. It can be quite full-on so we don't really recommended it for families.
