The school offers accommodations in nearby pensions (Guesthouses). The choices is between single rooms and shared rooms, with a shower or with corridor shower. If you opt to share a room, it will be with one other person only. We cannot guarantee any particular nationality for you to share with, but obviously females share with females and males with males.
Other types of accommodation are available. If you would like to stay in a hotel or an apartment, please let us know and we'll check availability and discuss prices with you. We are happy to make the necessary reservations, or you can make them yourself if you prefer.
Accommodation placement is our free service. We do not earn commission on the accommodation we arrange for students. If you stay in a guesthouse, hotel or pension we undertake to pay them the full amount charged to you for your room. The school was established in 1981, and since then we have developed very good relationships with the accommodation providers in our area and have negotiated good prices for our students. It may be therefore, that the accommodation that we arrange for you is cheaper than what you could organise yourself.
What should I bring?
Apart from clothes, you should bring soap and shampoo. Towels and bedding are provided, and breakfast is included in the price of the room.
Where do I go for breakfast?
The pensions have their own breakfast rooms. The owners will show you these rooms when you arrive.
Where do I go for lunch?
In the ski season, most people want to get to the slopes as soon after lessons as possible. They therefore often go to the supermarket (5 minutes from the school) in the evening and get bread, cheese, ham, yoghurt, fruit etc and keep it in the fridge in the breakfast room over night, and make a rapid snack for lunch the next day. It is also possible to go to the supermarket after lessons and buy a snack of course. There are 2 restaurants near the school (3 minutes walk) which have very reasonably priced menu lunches and snacks. There are also plenty of mountain restaurants.
At other times, the schedule is less hectic and there are plenty of opportunities for picnics on the mountains or by the lake. The supermarket and nearby restaurants are usually available and there are the beautiful pavement cafés in town, and again the mountain restaurants.
Where do I go for dinner?
There is a Bistro near the school which most of our students go to for dinner. This offers two course meals for 5.50 Euro or 6.50 Euro. These comprise a soup and a pasta dish or a soup and a more traditional Austrian dish such as goulash or Wiener Schnitzel. There is also a general menu with various prices. There is another restaurant near the school called the Eisenbad, which has an extensive menu. There are plenty of restaurants in town and many students enjoy trying out the local cuisine.
