A host of recreational activities make this a good destination for leisure travelers in both summer and winter seasons (think rafting, hiking, mountain biking and skiing). But the resort is also a business destination with an expansive conference area encompassing six conference rooms, an outside event space for up to 4,000 guests, plus a heliport for helicopter access.

There’s a destination spa where treatments showcase locally harvested alpine herbs, and La Prairie cosmetics for facials. There’s also a Kempinski Kids Club, and dining runs the gamut from Bavarian cuisine to international classics.
