The new Hotel Macun in Vent impresses with its location, cuisine and sustainability, while the new Sonnblick Penthouse Chalet in Reith in Alpbachtal inspires visitors with its alpine lifestyle. Improved infrastructure can be found on the mountain, in the castle and in new adventure parks.
A new hotel for young guests and a Tirolean Penthouse-Chalet
The word "Macun" comes from Romansh and means "ibex". The one-time Alpenrose in Söldener Vent was transformed into Hotel Macun by junior chefs Mallorie Rey and Pirmin Lechner and is aimed at the young, environmentally-conscious generation. Located at 1,907 metres, the hotel scores points for sustainability, quality products, international cuisine and cosy accommodation.
A lot of fine pine wood was used in the brand new 130 square metre apartment Sonnblick Penthouse Chalet in Reith im Alpbachtal, which can accommodate 2 to 8 people. The young hosts Christina Hauser and Matthias Sedlak also offer lots of extras: a well-stocked wine fridge, beer dispenser and - on request - a private chef.
On the mountain, in the castle – and in new adventure parks
In the winter of 2018/19, the new Glungezer gondola was opened in Tulfes. In summer, it offers the ideal starting point for walking the Zirbenweg "Pine Path" to Patscherkofel near Innsbruck.
In April 2019, the new inclined lift in the "Burgenwelt Ehrenberg" in Reutte will open. The elevator provides barrier-free access to the Ehrenberger Klause, the reconstructed Hornwerk and the highline179. With the construction of the inclined elevator, the 110-metre difference in height between the visitor centre and the Hornwerk station can be climbed in just 2.5 minutes.
Extensive construction work will start in East Tyrol in the spring of 2019: By 2020, a fun park at Lienz Zettersfeld and a new amusement park on the Brunnalm in St. Jakob in the Defreggental are to be built. In the Hohe Tauern National Park, in Oberhauser Zirbenwald in St. Jakob in the Defereggental, a lookout tower is being set up for wildlife observation.
