The history of SPA-HOTEL Jagdhof :
Purpose built, opened 1977 by Leo & Margot Pfurtscheller on site of family owned Café Gletscherblick. Extended to include farm in 1991, spa in 1998. Spa extension late 2014.
The philosophy of Armin and Christina Pfurtscheller:

They all feel bound by this tradition and so are committed to your well-being. To achieve this, respect for nature and honesty in their dealings with guests are a requirement for all employees and partners. They keep this in mind as they go about their daily business. They believe in what they do, relying on their many years of experience as hoteliers. They want to satisfy all your needs and wishes. Individuality, flexibility and dedication are therefore key for them. They place high demands on themselves. They are only happy that they have got it right when you are satisfied with their service. So the Jagdhof continues to be an exceptional place of luxury with a Tyrolean atmosphere. This is what they represent as a family and as a team, now and in the future.
When to go:
The question of when to go depends on what you want to do, really. Outdoor enthusiasts are spoilt for choice in Tirol, both in summer and winter. Hiking and rock climbing are popular activities in the warm summer months, while in winter many people come to Tirol for alpine skiing, cross-country skiing and tobogganing in the enchanting snowy landscape. Skiing is recommended from between Christmas and New Year′s Eve (this is also the time at which many Austrians join the tourists on the slopes), as well as from late January to late March. The low season runs in good years from as early as early November until Christmas, the early weeks of January and from late March until end of April. Especially during low season you can possibly encounter snow-less mountains in warm years, so if you are a last minute person, it′s worth checking the snow situation before heading off. However, the Stubai glacier, which is one of the largest and highest skiable glaciers in the Alps with guaranteed snow from October to June, offering year round all-ability activities including mountain & e-biking, hiking & walking plus 5 nearby Alpine golf courses. From the Ötztal, Paznauntal, Pitztal, Zillertal and Stubaital Valleys to East Tirol, Lake Achensee, the regional capital Innsbruck and the legendary resort of Kitzbühel: Tirol’s villages, towns and regions are famous for their traditional customs and celebrations as well as for being home to museums and other cultural attractions of the highest quality. Local inns are the ideal place to sample some of the delicious local specialties and relax after a long day out and about in the fresh air. And when things hot up in summer, there are plenty of crystal clear lakes to cool off, let your thoughts wander and simply lose yourself in the moment.
In their 6 comfortable wooden panelled restaurants with their cosy atmosphere you can experience typical Tyrolean hospitality. The chef and his team predominantly use regional and home grown products to create the meals. Even at the opulent breakfast buffet there are tempting milk products from Tyrolean farmers, cereal from local flour mills or egg dishes prepared à-la-minute. In the evening they prepare a 5 course menu with loving care. The Berglamm was bread by their senior chef, the venison come from one of the hunting grounds and other meat products from farmers in the Tyrol region.
Only the best regional products are prepared in the creative “new Austrian” style with respect for tradition and open for international influence. As a result of this, the kitchen has been rated by Gault Millau. The wooden panelled Hubertusstube with fine fabric covers and decorative antiques offers the perfect ambiance for these exquisite dishes and a culinary experience of the highest quality.
With only six places to sit, the delightful Gondel is the smallest gourmet restaurant in Tyrol. It is situated on the panorama terrace and offers an unforgettable view of the magnificent glaciers on the white mountain summits. The former ski gondola with Stubai spruce reclaimed wood has been lovingly transformed into a cosy mini Tyrolean parlour with coffered ceiling and elegant carvings. They will indulge you with culinary delights such as fondue specialities in the winter season and in summer they have Tyrolean Schmankerl for you.

Neustift is around 1.000 metres above sea level and has the best quality air even for those with allergies and for training activities. The altitude gives the area eight months of snow and makes it especially attractive for all winter sports enthusiasts. With its forests, streams and waterfalls, the area is of great interest to hikers and cyclists in summer. Keen golfers will find everything they need.

For skiers and snowboarders, October/November are often defined by anticipation. Watching webcams, waiting for winter weather to arrive and for the mountains to turn white. But if you’re lucky, November is the month when the first turns of the (hopefully long) season are made. Usually the October storm which deposited snow across the Alps meant that it is time to wax up the skis and head to Stubai Glacier, one of the ski areas in the Alps that are already open for business. The Italian Dolomites loom far off on the horizon in one direction, while in the other direction the wide Inn Valley makes its way north towards the German border. From a vantage point at 3.210 mt, the Alps stretch out in every direction. There aren’t many views that can beat the one from the very top of the Stubai Glacier but do you know the best things about standing at the top of Tyrol? So here are 7 reasons and 1 video why you should visit Stubai for an early-season escapade.
Getting a head start
Stubai is not a summer skiing area as such, but due to its high altitude and glacial slopes, it typically operates from December until May. How much of the terrain is open entirely depends on snow conditions, however Stubai is known for offering some of the best conditions during the autumn season (October and November) and again in the spring. At the start of November, usually it is already possible to ski down to the Middlestation Fernau at 2.300 mt, meaning only one gondola to download at the end of the day. At this time of year in the other resorts there are the Ski and Snowboard Shows, ski movie premieres and the shops fill up with all the latest kit. All of which aims to create a bit of buzz ahead of the coming winter. But do you know what’s a much better way to get buzzing about winter? Actually go skiing.
Austria’s largest glacier ski area
Hintertux Glacier take the honours for the longest season, open 365 days of the year (weather permitting) but Stubai Glacier is actually Austria’s largest glacier ski area. 25 lifts serve 100 km of pistes, though the amount of terrain open obviously depends on snow. There might not be any frighteningly steep black runs but Stubai’s terrain is more varied than most glacier areas, and as soon as the off-piste starts filling in up high there’s the chance to get away from the groomed. There are enough surface lifts on the glacier that even when the car park in the valley fills up, the crowds can spread out across the ski area.
Gourmet at altitude
The Schaufelspitz restaurant, with a Gault Millau toque to its name, brings fine-dining to the high alpine peaks. At an altitude of nearly 3000 mt, the Schaufelspitz serves Austrian classics done to the highest standard using regional ingredients, a solid wine list, and an expansive sun terrace. Surely some of the best Knödel anywhere in the Alps.
Soak up the last rays of summer
The days are getting short but at this time of the year it is still possibly to feel the warmth of the sun’s rays. The lifts are open for all the day, so there’s no harm at all in taking an extended lunch break, parking up on a sun lounger outside the Eisgrat Restaurant at 2.900 mt and catching a few rays.
Worth it for a weekend
It’s only a 20 minute drive from Innsbruck, meaning that it’s very easy to base yourself in the city and travel up to Stubai for the day. There are hotels in Neustift like the SPA-HOTEL Jagdhof . This 5-star SPA Hotel is an adventure for the senses! 70 lavish bedrooms, suites and apartments in traditional Tyrolean style offer premium comfort. At SPA-HOTEL Jagdhof relax in the spacious Spa area, enjoy the Hauben-awarded gourmet cuisine and choice of rare wines from their exquisite cellar, one of the best in Austria. Be inspired by nature with the spectacular alpine world of the Stubai Glacier, in the heart of Tyrol, every Guest will find peace and relaxation, or can take advantage of the many recreational activities. However Innsbruck itself has a stunning location and plenty to offer besides skiing. Mix a bit a skiing into your city break or add a bit of history and culture to your skiing break, make a long weekend of it and escape the dreary November weather in the rest of Europe. During the ski pre-season there are quite a few glacier ski areas to choose from across the Alps, however none are as convenient to get to as Stubai.
U can see your house from here!
Not quite, but the views are incredible. A picture tells a thousand words, so for the sake of brevity.
Sit back and watch the show
The guys and girls who you saw tearing up the Slopestyle course in Sochi surprisingly enough didn’t just turn up at the Olympics, throw themselves off those huge jumps and hope for the best. The top freestyle athletes train just as hard as top ski racers, and it’s places like Stubai where they hone their skills. Stubai’s freestyle park, with kickers sculpted to perfection, is a gathering place for the best freestyle skiers and boarders in the autumn and again in the spring. The park is located on the sunny Gaisskarferner, at the very top of the ski area, and it’s well worth stopping by to check it out, even if you prefer to keep your own ski attached to the snow! Regarding it, now watch the show by the video by Michael Ten Calka at Stubai Zoo during his winter pre-season!
