Maximum enjoyment in the 4-star superior Hotel Goldener Berg.
Radiant sunshine as we write these lines. For days, frosty temperatures have prevailed with deep blue skies and refreshing mountain air. The Golden Mountain is located at an altitude of 1,700 meters - a fact that significantly shapes the conditions. While in many places fog and poor visibility prevail in winter, we are aware of the gift that this altitude brings. The breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains make winter an extraordinary natural spectacle without equal. We are still here for you until April 23. Experience together with us magical Easter, enjoyable hours in the sun and spring skiing deluxe on the best slopes on the Arlberg.
Easter traditions in the Alps
Austria is characterized by many traditions. And although not all of them are actively lived in modern times, we are aware of the customs and culture. Many approaches still flow into the annual cycle today. In the Catholic faith, which is widespread in the Alpine region, Easter is considered the most important festival of the year. It celebrates the resurrection of Christ. A sign of the eternity of life.
However, many of the associated traditions have their origins much earlier. Even for the Celts, the hare and the egg were symbols of spring and fertility. A time that gave hope again after the long and cold winter.
At Easter - or Ostara, as the Celts called it - people celebrate the resurrection. Of Jesus Christ - but earlier in world history also - the resurgence of nature.
Nowadays, people take this time as an opportunity to bake traditional pastries together, paint Easter eggs and hide Easter nests. Many families attend mass on Easter Sunday, during which the Easter basket with the traditional snack is blessed. After the church attendance this is eaten with relish.
And also at the Golden Mountain one or the other bunny will be hidden and very special Easter specialties will be served.
