Après-ski is fast becoming a key component to consider when looking into ski holidays. With numerous ski resorts located just one hour from Munich airport and plenty of cheap deals on flights, you can get your après-ski holiday started in no time. This guide will tell you where to find the best après-ski venues to suit you, at three of the top ski resorts near Munich.
Bad Kohlgrub – excitement and relaxation
To combine the adrenaline rush of skiing with rest and recuperation, choose Bad Kohlgrub - a stunning spa set amongst magnificent mountains, moors and lakes. The spa is the perfect place to take a day off from the slopes to enjoy a few well-deserved pampering treatments.
After an exciting day on the slopes (or the massage table) you'll want to enjoy a good meal, and the nearby Heimgarten restaurant is famous for serving family-friendly and authentic German fare, whilst the Guggenberg Alm is a café and restaurant with a pretty exterior and a warm and welcoming feel.
Oberau – small but perfectly formed
Oberau is an affordable winter break destination for couples, groups and families. The resort has a cosy, family-friendly atmosphere and is part of a group of three different resorts interlinked by a bus service, so you can enjoy everything the area has to offer.
Nearby Niedarau is considered the area’s party capital. Dance the night away at The Dorfstub’n Fun-Pub or enjoy live musical entertainment at the Simmerlwirt café. There are regular Tyrolean evenings (featuring traditional folk dancing and yodelling) held in all the surrounding villages, as well as moonlit sleigh rides and toboggan parties.
St Wolfgang – ideal for beginners
Conveniently located just a short drive from Munich airport, St Wolfgang is steeped in a thousand years of history, and is the perfect place for ski beginners and families with children.
See how the locals get down at the Tanzlokal village disco, or enjoy some high-brow entertainment at one of many operetta evenings held at the famous White Horse Inn. For a completely different experience, take a trip to the casino in Salzburg or get romantic with a moonlit sleigh ride or snow shoe walk.
