In May 2013 I got an invitation to stay at Leading Family Hotel & Resort Alpenrose in Lermoos. That was an interesting invitation because I generally travel alone. I was curious to learn what this 4 stars superior hotel had to offer for families though.
Lermoss is situated at a historic route which was even used by the ancient Romans. This clever example of offline ‘augmented reality’ reminds of the fact that there was a Roman path made of trunks leading through the swamp between Lermoos, Ehrwald and Biberwier.
The parish church Hl. Katharina (St. Catherine) is a baroque church dating back to 18th century. Inside there are works by Martin Falbesoner from Nassereith and Giuseppe Gru from Verona. I was especially impressed by the shape of this window which reminded me of a bee.
The coach tour started on a rainy afternoon. Sitting on a coach on a cold day doesn’t sound that cozy but on the other hand they offered an intriguing add-on: There would be a wine tasting. Ok, that sounds heart-warming, doesn’t it?
Lermoos is a municipality in the Austrian state of Tyrol. You find it at the northern border of Tyrol. The photo above shows a view of the mountains nearby taken from the outskirts of Lermoos. The odd sign in the foreground refers to a former ancient Roman boardwalk across the swamp.
