The Setting

Located in the Tyrol region of Austria, Hotel Bergkristall is situated on the Alpbach side of the Ski Juwel lift system. This magnificent backdrop as well as great attention to detail and the traditional Tyrolean warmth that awaits you, all together creates a truly special home for your holiday. You will find Hotel Bergkristall in the small hamlet of Muhltal, just outside of the fairytale village of Oberau. The area has outstanding snow coverage, and the lift system has won many an award for the quality of the skiing that is available. Whilst you are there, why not enjoy a horse-drawn sleigh ride through the forest or a night of traditional Tyrolean music?

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.​
