Accompanying Traveller

Of course we want your accompanying non-carver to feel comfortable during their stay with us! The Lech Valley offers many opportunities to hike, bike, take leisurely walks, cross-country and downhill ski. Every Monday of the course week, we meet up with all the accompanying persons in order to inform them of the activities and interesting excursions in the nearby area. Of course we are always on hand to assist you in drafting your holiday plans and making the most of your time here.


Woodcarving Weeks Non-Carvers' Programme

Non-Carvers Programme
5th until 19th of October 2024

The programme for non-carvers offers some exciting tours and a variety of activities in the beautiful surroundings of the school. Enjoy
the colorful fall for pleasant walks and relaxing outdoor activities. The mountains are in pretty colors and the air is the clearest and freshest
at this time of the year. Each week there will be 2 half-day tours nearby. Several local sights are worthy of exploration including a hanging footbridge, a cheese maker, a glass etcher, or our nice little museum in Elbigenalp. A ride up a mountain or an interesting herb walk are other possibilities, depending on the weather. Minimum participants for the half day tours: 4. During your stay, we will be going on a special tour with the carvers, allowing you to visit and enjoy the beautiful capital of Tyrol – Innsbruck.

IMPORTANT! One full-day tour will be offered each week. One trip will take us to Füssen (Castle of Neuschwanstein) or to Mittenwald (Violin Museum). On the other trip, we will visit the stunning “Bregenz Forest”. Please note that these day tours are not included in the price and will be charged at the school. Prices will vary depending on the number of participants.

Use the opportunity to spend your free days relaxing, hiking, Nordic walking (poles provided), biking along the Lech river, and taking time to look at the beautiful mountain countryside. Please also note that you can book treatments in the spa or join the activity programme at the 4-star Alpenrose
Hotel, next to the school. Don’t forget to bring your swimsuit and walking shoes.

Activities and Spa Programme

We have a long-standing cooperation with the 4* Hotel Alpenrose, located only a 3-minute walk away. Our guests can take part in the comprehensive recreational programme of our partner hotel. For the sensational price of only € 60,– per week, you can participate in numerous activities of this top hotel (guided hikes, Qi Gong, Aquagymnastics, Yoga, Nordic Walking, and more) while also have access to the spa area with pool, sauna and workout center! Our house guests who only want to use the spa area of the partner hotel, pay a mere € 10,– per day.

So do not forget to pack your swim suit, exercise and hiking clothes!

It is also possible to book attractive spa treatments and wellness packages.

Signing up for this can be done exclusively at our office, since the Hotel Alpenrose normally does not accept day guests from "the street".
