Tucked away in a forested valley in scenic Sauerland, in the north west of Germany, Avital Resort is a great pick for nature lovers and sports enthusiasts. The highest town in North Rhine-Westphalia, picturesque Winterberg has good snow conditions in winter, making it a popular destination for skiing and sledding. A shuttle service to the ski slopes is available (for an extra fee).
In summer, there are many hiking trails to try, with the Rothaarsteig being one of the most popular. Nearby there’s also a 700-metre summer toboggan and an adventure assault course -- both great for kids -- while the Bikepark’s downhill mountain biking course is ideal for older visitors.
The hotel is on the outskirts of town, five minutes’ walk from the main concourse. Its chalet-style architecture fits in beautifully with Winterberg’s traditional looks, but inside the style is more contemporary, with sleek, wooden flooring and chiselled stone walls. The rooms offer modern furniture and free Wi-Fi, while some have balconies.
After an activity-filled day, guests can visit the hotel’s small but pleasant wellness area, where you’ll find an indoor pool, a Finnish sauna, a gym and a menu of spa treatments.
The restaurant serves a mix of Mediterranean and local dishes, and hosts an Italian buffet on Saturday evenings. Meals can be taken in the bright dining room or out on the garden terrace, while you can also enjoy drinks by the fireside in the KaminBar. Each morning, the hotel lays on an extensive breakfast buffet.
