In Austria we do not have a royal family, instead we have something more popular, royal pleasure. At the popular 'Kings tour’ a wonderful round from Maria Alm to Mühlbach, all skiers are welcome. And now there is another refinement to this tour! Six peaks, 35 kilometres of slopes and 7,500 meters of altitude difference are enriched by three delicious gourmet menu’s. The choice is yours between the gourmet partner huts; Steinbockalm, Deantnerin and the new Tom Almhütte. On the menu you will find some extraordinary dishes with a strong connection to the region and tempting names such as ‘fried scallops with shrimps, pea mousse and lard’. ‘Pingzauer roasted pork with sauerkraut and bread dumplings or spinach dumplings with brown butter and parmesan cheese’ or – sit tight – ‘chocolate mousse with rosemary popcorn, sea salt and caramel-cherry sorbet’. It is a good idea to leave yourself plenty of time, firstly for some finger food – the ‘King’s tour’ and before, in the middle or after for the enjoyment of tasting the menu. The ski boots can be taken off for ultimate relaxation and as a tour-goodie you will be offered some cosy Hochkönig hut slippers.
