January is a beautiful time to enjoy the magical snowy mountain landscape and the cosy comfort and charm of the AlpenRetreats 500-year-old house, nestled in between the forest.

Within this Retreat we will work with the energy centres oft the body (Chakras) by practicing different Meditation techniques, two daily Asana classes, and Pranayama (beathing techniques).
There will be tasty and healthy vegetarian meals each day, plenty of time in the afternoon for skiing/ski touring, exploring the surrounding area, spa/massage or simply relaxing and reading a book. There will be space for you to nurture your needs, enabling you to hear your inner voice and step into this New Year in a state of balance.

Located on the Tyrolean Fernpass, in the north-west of Austria, close to the German border the AlpenRetreat is easily reached via the Fernpassstrasse B179 (E532).
At the top of the Fernpass (Fernpasshöhe) there is a petrol station named "Dolle". Opposite of it on the other side of the street is a roadside restaurant (Fernpaß Rast), a red building, and a big yellow building (the former Fernpass hotel). Follow the small street between the restaurant and the yellow house for about 200m and you have reached the AlpenRetreat.
Places connected by the Fernpassstraße
Füssen – Reutte – Heiterwang – Lermooser Tunnel – Fernpass (AlpenRetreat) – Nassereith. At the border-tunnel in Füssen the Fernpassstrasse connects with the federal highway 310 and the A 7. In Nassereith it merges into the B 189 along the Inntal (Inn valley) in direction south-east towards Telfs and in south-west direction towards Imst.
In winter it is compulsory in Austria to have winter tires on your car. Although the Fernpassstrasse is well maintained and therefore easily accessible, sometimes the streets can still be covered in snow. In exceptional cases snow chains may be required (very rarely). If you are coming with a rental car, make sure it is equipped with winter tires (the rental company is obliged to provide this).
