Apres

The après ski scene in Mayrhofen grows each year. It was once a small family friendly resort, and although still brilliant for families, it now attracts huge numbers for the off the slopes parties. This in part is due to the growing popularity of snowbombing which attracts large numbers in April every year.

There are two major attractions come 3.30 in the afternoon, the White Lounge up on Ahorn which is a stunning igloo bar based on the side of the mountain. This is ideal for a chilled out drink, good music and plenty of deck chairs to relax on. Then most head down to the Hotel Strass which has the Ice Bar, this is the place to be and by far the liveliest. The bar opens from 3.30 attracting mainly Brits, Germans and Swedes but mainly Dutch.

The Brucke’n Stadl couldn’t be more Austrian if it tried with traditional building and lively traditional Austrian bands.
If you like the lively atmosphere without the rowdiness then the Coup and More is a modern easy going bar and restaurant offering cocktails, sun terrace and good music .

For just a quiet drink, one of the big hotels does it well, the Neuhaus http://alpendomizil.at or the Neue Post http://en.neue-post.at. Both have a very traditional Austrian atmosphere.


Eating out

Like many Austrian resorts the majority of visitors stay in hotels on a half board basis, so there isn’t the huge demand for restaurants. The restaurants it does have are often part of hotels or very good in their own right, especially the Wirsthaus zum Griena which is well worth a visit. It has a lovely old rustic style one the outskirts of town offering a very traditional menu.

The Kramerwirt offers large portions and is excellent quality http://www.kramerwirt.at. The Gasthof Brücke is also great value if you go for the set menu http://www.gasthof-bruecke.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=13&Itemid=28.

There is good pizza from Manni’s but this is expensive http://www.sporthotel-manni.com/en/restaurant.html.
