Make yourself at home at Contiki's iconic Gasthof


Nestled deep within the Austrian Alps, you’ll find something pretty special.

Surrounded by snow-capped mountains, bubbling rivers and iconic vistas, our cosy, traditional and exclusive Gasthof has been wowing travelers for decades.

Chill, play, snooze

This is the ultimate relaxation station, giving you dream home deco inspo for days. With plush sofas, a screen just perfect for Netflix binges and quiet corners for Monopoly playing and card games, this is the perfect environment to recharge yourself (and your phone batteries) after an intense ski-sesh.

Eat, drink, laugh

There’s nothing like shredding it on the slopes to work up an appetite, so our dining room is decked out with chunky handmade Austrian wood tables for communal group dining, and an insta-worthy mural to match. Tuck into traditional pork rosti and swap ski stories with the squad in cosy surroundings.

Mix, drink, dance

Our bar is so much more than just a bar - it’s a place to socialise with your crew, and reward yourself with a traditional Austrian beer, glass of vino or even a soul-warming hot chocolate. Dying for a cocktail? Our bar staff are ready to mix up any of your favourite drinks as you get competitive at our ping pong table, or tear it up the dance floor.

Sleep, dream, recharge

Our rooms are sleekly designed with alpine views so dreamy you’ll have to pinch yourself in the mornings. Forget elbowing each other out of the way to use the bathrooms; with spacious hot showers and separate sinks in every room, there’ll be no waiting in line. The cherry on top? Lots of wardrobe space to accommodate the ski gear or summer outfits you’ve jammed into your case.

The dream team

Professional, informative and heaps of fun, we love our team at our Gasthof, and we know you will too. As well as your very own Contiki Chefs to whip you up delicious local meals, you’ll get a full team who live on site, serving you drinks the bar, providing support from reception and generally being your guide to all things Hopfgarten, as well as your friends during your stay.

Skiing with Contiki

No matter whether you’re a ski novice or have been doing it since day dot, skiing with Contiki is all about sharing winter wonderlands with young travelers just like you. And we don't just go to Europe. Find out more about our worldwide ski & snowboard adventures.


Year round fun

It may be a winter wonderland, but this magical place doesn’t just come alive when it’s snowing - it shines all year round. When the warmer seasons hit, it’s just as picturesque (and equally ‘grammable).

Hopfgarten is abundant with summertime adventure activities, including biking through the mountains and waterfalls, and even a sizzling BBQ lunch with your besties. More of a chill-seeker than a thrill seeker? Take it slow and soak up the stunning Austrian nature vibes by hanging out at the lake, or catching a gondola up the mountain.
