Austria Destinations

Alpine incentive in Leogang

October 2, 2015

Dear beloved readers, September has been busy for me and it kind of scares me how fast that month has passed by… I’ve been traveling a lot and my bf came to visit – hence I had no time to keep my blog up to date. That means I have tons of photos and lots to catch up, and although I have to skip my monthly Vienna roundup (there was hardly any time to go anywhere else), I have a lot more material about a medieval festival in Lower Austria, Berlin and some great places in the alps. So where should I start first? I guess I’ll just go chronologically:

Beginning of September we had our annual strategic meeting of our company. Luckily that has nothing to do with any boring, ordinary meeting as it usually lasts a few days and takes place at a cool location. My bosses aren’t afraid of any costs, which means we get to stay in nice hotels, having lots of great food and drinks as well as an exciting leisure program. This time we went to Leogang, a popular holiday destination in the alps in the province of Salzburg. The hotel mama thresl was one of the best hotels I’ve ever stayed in – it’s cool and cozy at the same time and the staff is just incredible! I’d consider to go there again on my own, I hope the little gallery gives you a little clue 🙂

Also the scenery is just as great and there’s so many activities that you could easily spend two weeks there without getting bored (well, when the weather allows it), especially mountain biking and downhill tracks are big hits there. To prevent ourselves from injuries and sick days, we went for the “soft” version and did a tour on e-bikes in the valley – and oh, if you think they’re just for old people – you’re wrong! There are some cool off-road bikes out there and still you to need to pedal to get around 😉 However it’s a nice support to have a electric motor especially if you’re going uphill. The reward for the workout were the beautiful views and a hearty lunch break.

The second day finally greeted us with clear skies, which was perfect for our archery class and a heavenly fondue dinner at a beautiful wooden cabin from where you could see the sunset. Life’s good.

    I absolutely adore the shower in the hotel! Do you know how much your bosses paid for it? 🙂

    • Reply sileas October 3, 2015 at 9:16 am

      It wasn’t so bad, they paid 120 EUR per room and night, single occupancy. Including a huge breakfast buffet. However it was low season, so I’d check out their website: 😉

        Thanks a lot! 120 EUR per night sound pretty affordable 🙂

      Photogenic it is, too bad I didn’t take more pics. That trip is probably the best part of work, although that happens waay to rarely 😉

    Deine Artikel und Fotos sind wirklich hilfreich! Ich klicke mich gerade durch deine Artikel durch, auf der Suche nach einer schönen Wanderdestination in Österreich für eine Woche – vorzugsweise im Salzburger Land. Über Leogang habe ich nun schon viel gelesen. Meinst du, es ist überlaufen in der Haupt- und Ferienzeit? Ich mag ja eher ruhige Orte.
    Liebe Grüße nach NY!

      Ui das freut mich zu hören 🙂 Ich war damals Anfang September in Leogang und ich empfand es als ziemlich ruhig. Wie es im Hochsommer dort aussieht kann ich leider nicht beurteilen, aber das Gebiet ist groß – ich kann mir also nicht vorstellen, dass man dort wirklichen Menschenmassen begegnet 😉 Viel Spaß beim Planen!
