The Hotel Post in Lermoos Austria
We spend three days at the Hotel Post in Lermoos Austria below the Zugspitze more Austrian Side. From our balcony we have a view of the Zugspitze on our left and the Wetterstein mountains on the right. When we arrive, all the mountains can be seen clear of clouds, a sight that can hardly be more beautiful. The Hotel Post in Lermoos Austria, which was completely rebuilt in 2006, is located in the center of town. It is built to have the best view of the mountains and the Austrian side of the Zugspitze from one side.
Gourmet cuisine in the Hotel Post in Lermoos
We get to know the culinary art of Michael Kramer. Kramer is from Heiterwang and has cooked in hotels and restaurants in Europe and a restaurant in New York. His cuisine has a touch of creativity. In his gourmet menus, he mixes international cuisine with traditional Tyrolean food, which form a symbiosis. Director and sommelier Markus Saletz recommends wines for this evening, all of which come from Burgenland. The reason for our visit is the Pannobile Wine Tasting at the Hotel Post.
Wine from the Burgenland of Pannobile
Pannobile is a vintners' association of Burgenland winegrowers from the region east of Lake Neusiedl between Neusiedl and Gols. This is an area that we have already explored in more detail. We know how good the wines from this wine region are. All the more we look forward to getting to know and tasting the wines. One of them is the Sarastro, which Pannobile describes as a "wine with a social soul". The reason for this nickname is that the winegrowers each contribute a barrel of their best wine. They work together on a wine creation until a drop has emerged that is second to none. Nine Burgenland Pannobile winemakers present their wines at a wine tasting in the hotel.
Wine wellness in the 2000 m² Spa
The topic of wine in general: this also plays an important role in the 2000 square meter spa of the hotel. There they use the spa products from the Vignoble company from Austria, which are made on the basis of wine. I can try this out for myself that day with a facial massage. This shows me muscles that I didn't even know before. While the masseuse sensitively massages my nostrils and cheeks, the scent of the wine care products fills my nostrils. With a heat pad on my neck, I almost fall asleep after the massage. Pure relaxation and wine enjoyment at its finest!
As befits a wellness stay, we continue our relaxation program on the lounger on our balcony. While I'm watching the ragged clouds that have been clinging to the summit of the Zugspitze since morning and prevent us from going up the mountain, I listen to the jazz tones of the music. So it hardly bothers you that the excursion up to the summit of the Zugspitze literally falls through because of the rain clouds. It's just as much fun watching the cloud formations clinging to the summit and being blown away again and again. Pure wellness.

Hotel Post in Lermoos - a feel-good hotel in a class of its own
There are reasons to feel good in the Hotel Post in Lermoos * lots. It starts with a gourmet breakfast that overwhelms me for what it offers. At the buffet you will find pretty much everything you need to start the day. Fruit juices, teas, pastries, rolls and breads, all kinds of jams and honey straight from honeycombs (it really doesn't get any fresher than that). There is also sausage and ham, cheese, a selection of fruit, eggs of your choice and muesli with a variety of extras, which improve the selection even further. You have the choice between pineapple, raisins, seeds of all kinds and much more.
Dinner at Hotel Post in Lermoos Austria
This is just a foretaste of the dinner that will be served to us after our feel-good program. There is smoked trout with cucumber balls, mustard sauce and asparagus carpaccio, a foam soup made from galangal, a turbot sandwich with pak choi and tomato fagottini. We also have a coconut sorbet with Mai Thai soup, a fillet of young bull with chorizo, sweet potatoes and broad beans and a banana dessert with mint and caramel.
Country-style suite in the Hotel Post in Lermoos
Afterwards we look forward to our suite, which is furnished in a country house style. It offers all the amenities you would expect from a four-star superior hotel. A bathroom with shower and toilet, a seating area with a selection of books to read. This includes the balcony with a view of the Zugspitze and the Wetterstein Mountains and a tiled stove with a stove bench. When I see it, I wish for winter to come and enjoy its warmth.
Conclusion: the Hotel Post in Lermoos Austria is a hotel for connoisseurs
Our summary after our stay at the Hotel Post in Lermoos in Tyrol. Don't be misled by the name of the hotel. The guest does not expect a traditional inn with the extras that one expects there. The Hotel Post in Lermoos was built from scratch in 2006, with the Postschlössl (on the other side of the village church) already dating back to 1560. The hotel looks back on a history of about 300 years. When the hotel was built, care was taken to combine the 450-year tradition of the Post Hotels with a feel-good atmosphere, and that was a great success.

You can still feel the history and the stories of travelers who used to arrive here by mail coaches and that in this house nobility, art, culture and science met. The guests included emperors and kings, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Andreas Hofer and federal presidents from Austria.
