The sun is shining, your gaze wanders over the snow-tipped summits. And down again to the ski boots or mountain shoes that have already carried you up to such heights. You warm your hands around a mug of herbal tea or hot chocolate with rum... just as the fancy takes you. During the winter months, the mountain huts and restaurants in the Val Passiria Valley are popular meeting places for skiers, winter hikers and all those who have been out on the mountains and now want to warm themselves by the fireplace in the wood panelled parlour. Those who prefer to feel the sun on their face can lie in a sun lounger on the terrace and sip a glass of wine, or order dumplings or Kaiserschmarrn sugared pancake. Whether it’s an en-route stop for refreshments, or your reward after a tiring day on the slopes – a stop in one of Val Passiria Valley’s mountain huts is always a wonderful experience.
