Girlstrip to Kitzbühel!
As you know, our main focus is our career and we spend long hours at the office or at the library prepping for our exams. So it´s really important to take some time off to fuel up every now and then, even if it´s just for only 48 hours. And what better way is there to recharge your inner batteries than a girlstrip to the wonderful Austrian Alps?!
Since it is only a 1,5 hours drive away from Munich, Kitzbühel is the perfect destination for a short getaway – in summer as also in wintertime! 🙂
Of course, as it is always super cold in the mountains, thick winter jackets and coats can’t be missing.
Our extra-tip is to leave to Kitzbühel in the evening, after work, to avoid to be stuck in traffic and loose precious time. Once we got there, we decided to take the first evening slow and just enjoy a cup of tea and a few laughs on the couch. The next morning we savoured a healthy breakfast with a gorgeous view of the mountains from our balcony.
After a long and relaxing walk alongside the Schwarzsee (which looks even more beautiful in winter when it´s covered in snow), we headed to our favourite spot: the famous Rosi´s Sonnbergstuben. Here you can enjoy delicious Tirolean dishes with the most stunning view you could ask for! Our tip: share a Jausenbrett´l or a Backhendl and then finish with the best Kaiserschmarrn in the world as dessert. Book in advance and ask them for table number 67: it´s the one with the best vista 😉
And since it´s a girls´weekend, of course there has to be some time for shopping as well 😉 So take a stroll along the cute and colourful streets of Kitz and do a bit of window-(or actual) shopping at Moncler, Louis Vuitton and the lovely little boutique KitzGlück. For shopping we always wear colorful bags like the ones on the following pictures.
End the day right with a yummy dinner at the restaurant Pfandl and win (or loose :P) some cash at the Casino. Of course we lost all our money, but who cares when you´re having such a fun time with your bestfriend?! 🙂
To really recharge before going back home, spend your last day at the spa. Our favourites are the A-Rosa Resorts & Hideaways, the Kempinski and the Biohotel Stanglwirt (here you will have to book a room to have access to the spa though).
This time around we chose the most typical A-Rosa and had the best time swimming in the heated outdoor pool, chilling on the comfortable beds and trying out the two different steam rooms and 5 (!) different saunas. Once you are done, you will feel like a completely new person! (you can find Mirjams bathing suit here!)
So when you feel like you can´t deal with the everyday struggle anymore, just grab your bestie and enjoy a couple of days away from all the madness. It´ll help you to come back stronger and more productive than ever!!
Lots of love,
Mirjam & Viktoria
