Classical music aficionados will love the programme of matinee performances by a musician from the Freiburg Barock Orchestra and a member of the ensemble recherche. When it comes to dining, guests will be introduced to local producers who will provide delicious local food and wine throughout the weekends. When not hiking and biking through the mountains, picnicking in the meadows and exploring Lech, guests can sip on clasic cocktails while soaking up the atmosphere at Othmar’s cocktail lounge.
