Summer 2023 at the Schlosshotel Fiss
It's amazing how quickly summer 2023 passed by, wouldn't you agree? Yet, it was a season filled with memorable moments at Schlosshotel Fiss, shared with our valued guests.
What happened in summer 2023?
In both June and September, we hosted an enriching and grounding yoga week with Janice Diederichs, providing guests with a unique opportunity to embark on "the path of the heart." Over the course of five days, Janice guided participants through Hatha Yoga, Morning Yoga at Lake Wolfsee, Pranayama practice, an ecstatic dance workshop, therapeutic sound healing, a mantra concert, a cocoa ceremony, and two meditative journeys. These experiences reignited hearts and rekindled intuition and creativity.
For those who missed out: Don’t worry, we have another "Follow the Path of the Heart" week scheduled for 2024.
Bright children's eyes and happy water fun
"Mom, Dad, look, I can swim!" exclaimed the young water enthusiasts during the Baby & Toddler Swimming Week. In this special event, children were introduced to the exhilarating realm of swimming under the guidance of a skilled instructor. Toddlers proudly took their first strokes, and even the babies had their initial, gentle encounters with the water.
Within intimate, closely supervised groups, each child had the opportunity to make unique and personalized progress.
We are delighted to announce that a Baby & Toddler Swimming Week is on the agenda once more for 2024.
SHF Culinary Autumn 2023
The SHF Culinary Autumn proved to be yet another delightful season. For three weeks, we shared grounding experiences in nature and embarked on a variety of flavour journeys with our guests. Throughout September, we enjoyed the sensory delights of a gourmet hike with a barbecue afternoon, sunrise yoga, whiskey and rum tastings, wine-tastings with the winegrowers themselves, chocolate workshops in the Kids Club, and cooking workshops in the SHF kitchen.
Quotes from 3 guests about the Culinary Autumn 2023
"Wow, what an experience! At the barbecue course with Marc Gilbert from Big Green Egg, I was immersed in a world of culinary sophistication. From grilled lemonade to tender Ora King salmon on cedar plank to Challans duck breast, I learned many new dishes and grilling techniques. I also found the exchange with the SHF chefs super exciting. The highlight was a delicate apple and pear tart. A feast for the palate and an educational experience that reignited my passion for grilling - I'm thrilled!"

"I love scavenger hunts! And here, at the Schlosshotel Fiss we had to solve riddles to find Austrian specialties. We walked through the whole garden and kept discovering delicious treats." Ilvy P. (5 years) KidsGourmet scavenger hunt on 22.09.2023

What's NEW since the summer of 2023
Another highlight introduced this summer is the new ball tracks at Möseralm and along the ball track trail in Serfaus, starting at Högsee. Amidst the backdrop of children's laughter and the inviting call of "Come along!" wooden marbles make their way through pine forests, past gurgling streams, and colorful alpine meadows. Families eagerly followed behind with childlike curiosity, playfully exploring boundless joy.
And there's more news to share. We've captured the family vacation at Schlosshotel Fiss in moving pictures and proudly present our new film (in german only).
