Weihnachten im Hotel

The image of snow-covered mountain peaks, softly trickling snow and a warm cup of cocoa in your hand: for many, a Christmas in a hotel in the mountains is the ultimate dream holiday destination. The Christmas atmosphere in the mountains attracts thousands of tourists every year who want to spend an unforgettable holiday in a hotel. But what makes Christmas at the hotel so special and how can you ensure that this festive season is truly unforgettable for your guests? You can find out all about this in this article.

Why Christmas in a hotel is so popular

Christmas at the hotel offers a unique combination of relaxation, recreation and festive flair. Who wouldn’t want to leave the hustle and bustle of Christmas at home behind and instead relax in a luxurious hotel room with a view of snow-covered mountains and delicious food that you don’t have to take care of yourself? A hotel in the snow at Christmas is not only a fantastic opportunity for couples to take time out, but also for families. Because a hotel vacation at Christmas with the family ensures that all generations can celebrate together and enjoy comfort and first-class service.

An unforgettable Christmas in a hotel with a program

For your Christmas guests, however, you should not only focus on the dreamlike backdrop, but also offer a special program for them. Celebrating Christmas in a hotel should be more than just an overnight stay. Cookie baking workshops, festive dinners with regional specialties and live music by the fireplace are just some of the possibilities that make Christmas in a hotel with a program a unique experience.

Family friendliness at Christmas

For families looking to book a hotel at Christmas, child-friendly offers and facilities are particularly important. If you want to appeal to families, make sure you also have something to offer younger guests. This way, Christmas at the hotel is also a magical experience for families.

The culinary component of an unforgettable Christmas

When it comes to Christmas in a hotel, the culinary side of the festivities should not be overlooked. As we all know, Christmas is also a feast for the senses, and that includes the palate. A well-planned Christmas menu that combines regional delicacies and traditional Christmas dishes can make all the difference. A festive buffet, a multi-course menu on Christmas Eve or a special Christmas breakfast are just a few ideas of how you can offer your guests a culinary experience in a class of its own.

Wellness and relaxation over the festive season

Christmas is not only a time for contemplation, but also for relaxation. Many people use the holidays to treat themselves to a break from their stressful everyday lives. Hotels that have a wellness area should therefore offer special Christmas packages. This could range from Christmas aromatherapy sessions to relaxing massages and special sauna infusions. Christmas in a hotel should refresh body, mind and soul in equal measure.

Incorporate local traditions

Every region, whether in the mountains or elsewhere, has its own Christmas traditions. You can use this to make your hotel offer unique and unforgettable for your guests. Whether it’s lighting fires, traditional dances, singing Christmas carols or telling regional stories, all these things add a dreamlike touch to Christmas at the hotel. By integrating such traditions, your guests not only get an authentic experience, but also learn more about the culture and history of the place they are in.

Don’t forget your ski room

Of course, we mustn’t forget that many guests who want to spend Christmas in a hotel in the mountains are also skiers. For them, the ski room is a decisive factor when choosing a hotel. A well-equipped ski room, where not only skis but also other winter equipment can be stored safely and conveniently, is much appreciated by guests. At Christmas time, it can also be particularly beautifully decorated. Just make sure to keep emergency exits clear and place the decorations in such a way that they don’t get in the way or become a tripping hazard.


Christmas at the hotel is a special experience for your guests. From culinary delights and wellness offers to immersion in local traditions, the possibilities are endless. With a little creativity and commitment, you can ensure that your guests leave the hotel with lifelong memories and look forward to returning next year.
