The Setting

The union of Alpbach and Auffach in the Kitzbuheler Alps created one of Austria’s prettiest and friendliest ski areas, the Ski Juwel. When you visit you will quickly realise that this is not just a tourist destination, but a place where people still farm, dress up for church on Sundays, and distil the strangest schnapps in Austria ( possibly best avoided if you value your taste buds !  ) - you will soon begin to understand the region’s very particular appeal, it’s no wonder skiers come back year after year to holiday here.  The Hotel Bergkristall in the hamlet of Muhltal, just outside the fairytail village of Auffach is a delightful family run 4 star hotel offering great cuisine, comfort and traditional Austrian hospitality. On one evening you will enjoy a special Tyrolean meal with lots of dancing, thigh slapping and wood chopping and on another night we take you for a more relaxing horse drawn sleigh ride through the forests of Hopfgarten.


You will be greeted at Munich airport by dedicated and experienced Ski Company staff  who are there to look after you for your entire stay and help create great memories of this very special part of Austria.

The Skiing

The two ski areas of Alpbach and Auffach sat side by side in one of the prettiest parts of the Tirol, for years there was talk of linking these two areas and finally, in 2012, with the opening of a new piste and state-of-the-art gondola, they finally did it and the Ski Juwel was born. The result is a medium-sized ski area of 109 kms, (145 kms if you include Niederau), 2 snow parks and 25 cosy ski huts.


The skiing in the Juwel is particularly suited to beginners and intermediate skiers with a few black runs of rare quality for the more adventurous. 300 snow cannons provide Mother Nature with back-up, covering 85% of all pistes. Over the years the Juwel has won numerous awards and is now recognised as one of the top ten destinations in the Tyrol.​

The Accommodation

The Hotel Bergkristall is a four-star cosy traditional Tyrolean family run hotel with modern twists of elegance and sophistication. It is currently in its third generation, and can be found in the west of the Kitzbuhel Alps, surrounded by mountains and nature.


With beautifully appointed rooms, sumptuous breakfasts, afternoon skiers’ snack and evening meals (that have more courses than you can count), alongside a peaceful, idyllic location, the Bergkristall will have you starting a love affair with Austria. For those looking for a slice of local adventure, you can take an evening stroll to a micro-brewery, a small but lively venue with a great atmosphere and a beer catalogue as fat as a phonebook, however a walk under the stars in the crisp cold air and the total silence of the mountains will also leave you feeling equally as happy and at peace.​
