Living in the Olympiaregion Seefeld: How long have you already been living here or what brought you here? What makes the Olympiaregion so special for you / your family?
I had the privilege of growing up here in Seefeld and since my earliest childhood I have gathered strength from this region. The quality and variety of leisure possibilities throughout the year, the central location in the heart of Tyrol and the proximity to cultural neighbours such as Germany, Switzerland and Italy all contribute to making our high-plateau so special.
Each of our partner-hotels for WSC-athletes in the area is unique: How would you describe the philosophy which brought you to this point and which distinguishes you from other hotels?
Our philosophy is “Indulgence all-inclusive” – enjoying holidays to the full whether just sitting down and relaxing, admiring a beautifully decorated table or appreciating the high level of service provided. There’s no need to worry about anything, just enjoy everything. A second cornerstone is our testimony to the Nordic Lifestyle – “Discover the Olympiaregion in all seasons and with all its facets”.
Are there any personal memories of the last FIS Nordic World Ski Championships in 1985 that you / your family could share with us? Did this event change or create new ambitions for Nordic ski sport?
When the last FIS Nordic World Ski Championships took place in 1985, I was too young to realise the enormity of the event. Now, many years later, my personal ambitions have been energised by the fantastic offer of Nordic sporting activities in the region. The entire region stands for quality and “Nordic Lifestyle” and that’s ultimately why we are getting to host the WSC in 2019.
What are you looking forward to while hosting the top WSC 2019 athletes in your hotel?
We are very proud to be hosting the Austrian Team und are looking forward to sharing all the thrills with “our” young and dynamic athletes during the competition.
Do you have a vision or a personal wish for 2019?
We hope that in keeping with the motto “hand in hand”, the WSC 2019 will be a cheerful, unifying and amicable festival for everyone. Our wish is to be able to set new standards and to prove that we are “The Best Cross-Country Area in the Alps”.
