We love summer. Do you feel the same? Extensive hiking tours, swim in the lake and rush down the singletrail. A outdoor picnic, breakfast at the terrace and long warm summer-evenings at the balcony. We are ready for the hottest days of the year. We collected the best tips to make your summer even more special.
Summer in the city….
When it gets light early in the morning and the air is pleasantly warm, it pulls you right out of bed. Get up with the birds and see how the city slowly wakes up. Watching the first early risers, who already go to work and the hectic and lively city comes to live slowly. It´s fantastic just to watch, if you sit in the nice little coffee, for breakfast. Just take some time for yourself, start coffee and crossiant comfortably in the day. Best with pen and paper, because in such a nice "meeting" the best ideas - for example. the next holiday in the mountains - come into your mind.
Summer in Saalbach….
We like to start the day with movement. No matter whether with a jogging session or the yoga lesson with our Vital-Coach Gunter. Well rested. Exhausted but refueled! The perfect start to the day. And then ready for breakfast ... Have you ever been a little crazy and spontaneous and have taken your breakfast and coffee on top of the mountain or your nice favorite outdoor place? No? You should definitely do that. So you start the day in a relaxed way! And for the very "crazy" ones - what about cuddly breakfast with room service in bed ???
20.00 pm and still it is bright and pleasantly warm outside. Isn`t summer wonderful? The perfect time of year to meet with friends and let the day fade away with a glass of wine. Whether on the Isar, the Main or the Elbe - in the English Garden or the small city park around the corner. Take your picnic blanket, get on your bike and enjoy the balmy evening.
When was the last time you informed yourself about event tips in your city? In summer there are a lot of great events - let yourself be inspired. Definitely always a good choice - an evening in the open-air cinema!
End the evening in a nice way? We can do that too. Best with live music in the eva, ALM. There's always something going on. With a good glass of wine you can watch the sun slowly disappear behind the mountains and the day draw to a close.
And then, when it gets dark - then something magical comes to our minds. Darkness. Look up. Incredible astonishment. Who will find the big car first? Far away from the large illuminated cities, the stars in Saalbach are even clearer and more visible. You don´t believe us? Convince yourself. When? How about the next shooting shower rain: 12./13. August!
Now we have constantly complained about the hot weather and then nobody wants to have the rain. When will we finally stop complaining! ;) But at the moment it is quite nice in the summer to just lie on the couch, to listen to the rain, to read a good book or to binch-watch one or the other favorite series. And without a bad conscience, you could miss something outside. And those who want to go out, even when it rains, should inquire about the current exhibitions and offers in surrounding museums. Also families ... And if you only want to get a taste of it, you should inquire in his city, because in Munich, for example. is the entrance in the last hour free of charge and for the Sundays there are many great offers!
Rainy days in the mountains can be so beautiful. Just leave everything behind. Get your head clear and breathe. Turn around in bed again with a clear conscience. And then a hearty delicious breakfast. Perfect. And then you do directly into the sauna. That's how you imagine a relaxing day. No rush, no stress. And when the rain stopped, the clouds slowly clear, then you have to go out. Because have you ever felt how nature, the forest, the trees and flowers behave after a heavy downpour? How they awake and show themselves freshly strengthened full of splendor. You will feel the same way when you breathe in the fresh, clean air, clear your head, and drive back to the city, strengthened!
Whine about the Sahara heat? This cools neither the head nor the mind. But how do you manage to keep a "cool head" in everyday life?
It is best to air your apartments directly in the morning after getting up and then close all windows, shutters down or alternatively close the curtains, so that you can keep out the sun and hot temperatures during the day.
Start your day with a lukewarm shower - do not take a cold shower, it will bring make you sweat afterwards.
Make sure that the drinks are not too cold, as this also does not cool the body sustainably but heats it up even more. Watermelon and cucumber are the ideal snacks to provide you with the necessary fluids in hot temperatures.
eva's, gourmet tip: Couscous salad with feta, cucumber, watermelon & mint - it tastes wonderfull and like summer.
If you want to leave your everyday life behind and enjoy the summer in the mountains, then we have a few more great recommendations.
Downhill on the bike - the airstream automatically creates a "cool feeling". But even with our great hiking trails, nature itself always offers you a great refreshment.
A cool foot bath in the mountain stream, a tour through the pleasantly cool forest or the most casual drink of the mountains - a cool spring water directly from the source. This is how it can be endured in the summer!
And for those who want to end the day with relish, there is a cool drink in the eva, ALM (is there a cool drink here?)
Dani's tip: I like to start my hikes directly at 6 o'clock in the morning. I enjoy watching nature wake up, the temperature is still cool and you have the mega view of the summit mostly alone.
