FERIENHOTEL KALTSCHMID: Sieglinde & Fritz Kaltschmid
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?
We have been living here in the Olympiaregion Seefeld for 55 years already, since April 1962. Our hotels are all family-run and we are very proud to see that our children have the same passion and love for the hotels they run themselves.
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 job is our life’s vocation.
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?
We have vivid memories of the last WSC and we are very proud that we were also present at both Olympic games – in 1964 and in 1976: a sublime feeling that still inspires us! Our personal sporting behaviour has never changed but we are enthusiastic spectators.
What are you looking forward to while hosting the top WSC 2019 athletes in your hotel?
We look forward to getting to know our athletes, to experiencing the phrase “hand in hand” and to seeing how new “world champions” are born here in Seefeld.
