Post Hotel Lermoos

The Post Hotel in the small village of Lermoos, Austria seems to have it all…beautiful rooms, delicious food  and spectacular views of the Zugspitze. It also has a wonderful spa and is one of Austria’s Best Wellness hotels. You can enjoy relaxing therapies as well as beautiful scenery and that is what keeps my husband and I returning to this lovely hotel.

The hotel began as a post office in the center of Lermoos in 1560 and became an inn in 1702. In 2006, the hotel was completely rebuilt into the four star superior hotel that you see today.

Decorated in a sophisticated yet casual country house style, the hotel and its employees make you feel welcome the minute you walk through the front door.

After checking in at reception, we headed up to our beautiful room. This year we had a junior suite with a view of the Zugspitze that was quite lovely. It had a kingsize bed, a comfortable seating area, a large flat screen TV, and a small table and bench next to a tiled heater for cold nights. The large bathroom had double sinks, a bathtub and walk in shower and separate toilet.

After unpacking, it was time to head down to the hotel lobby. There is a nice bar and a separate smoking lounge, if you are so inclined. Next we always head out onto the terrace at the back of the hotel to enjoy the  breathtaking scenery.

If it is a nice day, a light lunch or a slice of Sacher torte at one of the dining tables on the terrace is delightful. If it is cool, you can snuggle in one of the fur lined chairs next to one of the fireplace heaters that line the terrace.

The afternoon is a great time to head down to the wellness center. You are provided with a bag, bathrobe and slippers for the spa. There is both an indoor and outdoor pool that are connected with a glass door that you can swim through and a whirlpool.

In the spa area there is an herbal steam bath, brine bath, aroma bath, bio sauna, Tyrolean sauna, ice cave, cold water plunge and relaxation rooms. There is even a separate family area with a steam bath and sauna. The beauty spa has all kind of treatments, scrubs, baths and massages available.

In the evening, it is time to head down to the bar for an before dinner cocktail and then on to dinner. The price of your room includes full board which is a full breakfast, a light lunch, cakes in the afternoon and in the evening you are served a six course gourmet meal. The wine cellar, overseen by sommelier Markus Saletz, has been voted one of the best in Austria. Markus has remembered us each time we have visited the hotel and always recommends a wonderful wine to go along with what we have ordered for dinner.

After a good night’s sleep, it is a pleasure to awake to the wonderful views of the mountains and plan you day’s adventures. Within an hours drive of the hotel, you can cross the border into Bavaria and visit the beautiful pilgrimage church of Wies, Ludwig’s famous Neuschwanstein and Linderhof Palace outside of Fussen, Garmisch-Partennkirchen, and the storybook villages of Oberammergau and Mittenwald.

Sun Setting At The End Of A Wonderful Day

Whenever we travel to Austria, I believe the Hotel Post in Lermoos will always be one of our stops. The countryside is beautiful and the hotel leaves nothing to be desired.

      • Just wish I’d made my way to that suitcase of yours!! Hang in there as you come back to reality– the Christmas following our return home late October the time we’d gone to Austria– I decided to order a sacher torte from the hotel sacher– it was to be my son’s birthday cake for his 23rd bday– needless to say– he was unimpressed 😎

  5. simply fabulous! Thanks for sharing!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Angie, Just returned home and I’m catching up on comments. Aren’t the views of the Zugspitze wonderful from the hotel…it is almost in their backyard.

  17. Wowzers, the view is getting better and better at each hotel. I’m not jealous at all of these amzing hotels one after the other. Really need to rethink my holidays from now on.

    • Karen says:

      Hi David, I’m just catching up on answering comments now that we are home. This year’s hotels were simply the best. My husband said he could do the exact same trip again they were all so good. Perhaps someday you will visit some of them. 🙂

  18. I see why you keep returning! What an amazing hotel and breathtaking scenery. The food I’m sure is delicious and to wake up with that view. Thanks for sharing the tour………..
    Happy November.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Emily, Just returned home and catching up on comments. Don’t you just love the view of the Zugspitze. The Post is one of our favorite hotels and yes, the food is delicious.

  19. lifeincharente says:

    Delighted that it is still called Post Hotel as it brings back the memories. It looks a fabulous place and food is so inviting. Diane

  20. cheri says:

    I believe I could live here, such a charming place. Would love to hike the Zugspitze someday.

  21. savourytable says:

    How beautiful! Dream trip.

  22. restlessjo says:

    The scenery is fabulous, Karen! No wonder you love it. 🙂

  23. With such a lovely view – eating a slice of sacher torte on the terrace must be heavenly. The spa looks special. All in all I am not surprised you like it so much. 😉

  24. I would just love to go to a place like this. I’ve never spent time in a spa except to get a facial or a massage. That beautiful place would be a dream and the scenery is just gorgeous!

  25. Cathy says:

    That really does look wonderful Karen! I believe I have driven along the famous mountain passes there, but never stopped at Lermoos. Fantastic views from your hotel room and the terraces. 🙂

  26. Absolutely stunning scenery and gorgeous accommodations. What a treat that was!

  27. Wow, what a fabulous trip! I’ve been to Austria during the winter months, but not when it was nice and green like your photos. I think it’s time for me to visit again!

  28. Eha says:

    Remember this from your previous trips! You will forgive me for a smile that Sacher Torte and six-course degustation meals are served in a ‘Wellness’ hotel . . . . well, one’s mood would certainly be that afterwards 🙂 ! As you know this is not my preferred part of the world, but, after many years would like to walk thru’ Linderhof again and see whether I would still feel the old charm of yesteryear . . .

  29. Absolutely beautiful Karen !!

  30. this place looks so wonderful. and you have to have a piece of sachertorte of course. we had it actually from the Hotel Sacher when we were in vienna years ago. ah the memories!

  31. Wow, a place that turns bed pillows into sculptures- I must go there! I went to Oberammergau in 1970 and saw the passion play that is performed every 10 years. Hmmm, the next play there will be in 2020- maybe I should return after 50 years!

  32. I hadn’t visited recently and had forgotten what wonderful places you visit. As I read down your description I kept thinking that is exactly where I would like to be right now.

  33. Another amazing find, Karen! It is going to be terribly hard to leave that most enchanting of countries. Enjoy it whilst you can. 👍

  34. Austria – wow! It looks so beautiful and the food looks good, too. What a terrific trip!

  35. Julie Yates says:
