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
Austrian Woodcarving Weeks 2017
May 14th until 28th
Enjoy your holiday in the Alps during the most beautiful time of the year.
The programme for non-carvers offers some exciting tours and a variety of activities in the beautiful surrounding area. Enjoy the lovely May evenings for pleasant walks and relaxing tours. The hills are full of exceptional wild flowers, like rare and protected orchids. Each week there will be 2 half-day tours near the school. Several local sights are worthy of exploration including a hanging footbridge, a cheese maker, a glass etcher and last but not least our nice little museum in Elbigenalp. A ride up a mountain or an interesting herb walk are other possibilities, depending on the weather.
The tour to South Tyrol, on May 20th and May 21st together with the carvers is included in this package. (For details see "Austrian Woodcarving Weeks 2017 -Tour to South Tyrol, Italy")
Accompanying Traveller Special
You are a non-carver wishing to have your lunch with a course participant? The meal is included for students, yet the accompanying person is invited to eat, too. Simply book the accomodation with half board for both persons.
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".
