The majestic Zugspitze and surrounding mountains provide a breathtaking backdrop for guests staying at the Hotel Post, a traditional family run hotel, in Lermoos, Austria. The hotel is a popular destination for those seeking refined cuisine and relaxing, rejuvenating days in its alpine wellness spa.

I love a room with a view and Hotel Post in Lermoos, Austria, can certainly provide its guests with a breathtaking one. Whether seen from your room’s balcony, the restaurant’s terrace or from a lounge chair in the spa, the view makes a stunning first impression and one I never get tired of seeing. Being on the sunny side of the Zugspitze, throughout the day you can’t help but notice that the mountains seem to change colors as the sun and clouds move across the sky.

Hotel Post, a traditional alpine style country hotel, has a total of 59 suites of various sizes. They are all casual and welcoming with wooden interiors, traditional tiled stoves and have large modern bathrooms with a separate tub and shower. Most all of the rooms have a large balcony with that incredible view you can’t stop admiring.

The wonderful spa facilities include nine different saunas and steam baths, open fireplaces in the indoor pool and relaxation room, two outdoor pools that can also be used in winter, as well. In the garden, there is a spectacular pine panorama sauna lodge with views of the mountains that can be seen from the sauna benches and from the upstairs relaxation room. On this, our fifth stay at the Post, my husband and I really enjoyed the wellness spa with its beautiful views, it was perfect for hours of rest and relaxation which we both needed.

My husband and I are not hikers, cyclists or winter skiers as most people are who visit this Tyrolean region of Austria but we always find plenty to fill our days. Lermoos is within an easy driving distance of some wonderful small Bavarian towns across the nearby border. Garmisch-Partennkirchen is just a twenty minute drive and the castles of King Ludwig II are no more than forty five minutes away. After a day of sightseeing, we head back to the hotel for a piece of cake on the sun terrace, enjoy some time in the spa and later, perhaps a cocktail in the lounge before dinner.

One of the highlights during each of our stays at Hotel Post has always been the gourmet multi course dinner served each evening. Chef Strasser and his staff’s cooking talents seem to get better and better. The chef has taken some of the best regional dishes and reinterpreted them using modern techniques and different flavor combinations. His new modern alpine cuisine is not only delicious but beautifully presented as well.

My husband and I have stayed in a number of hotels in the Tyrol region of Austria and the Hotel Post in Lermoos has become a favorite. It never disappoints with its comfortable rooms, wonderful spa and some of the best food we have had in Austria. We always have happy memories from our holidays there, especially of sitting on the sun terrace with the warn light of the autumn sun adding a special glow to the majestic mountains in the background.

  2. Such beautiful views Karen! And the hotel looks lovely too. I have driven past Lermoos on mountain drives with my parents when they have come to visit – the route from Mittenwald southwards and then back up to Garmisch via the Fernpass is spectacular, but I have only ever seen it in summer. Enjoy the rest of your holiday Karen. You have once again been so fortunate with the weather!

  3. Wow, thouse mountains look stunning, especially in your picture of The Zugspitze juxtaposed with the red tree! The food looks delicious too. I’m intigued, does the round pointed ceramic on top of the stove serve as a chimney, or does it have some other function?

  4. What a gorgeous, healing environment! Now we’re talking. 🙂 The gourmet meals are a sure plus, too! So glad you had this wonderful opportunity, Karen.
