Thursday night was "murder mystery" night at the Hotel Tuxertal with the hotel staff performing the parts of murder suspects in the killing of a doctor with a billard cue. All good fun and part of the buffet evening at the hotel. I won't divulge the killer; you will have to take part to find out...and decipher the killer from the clues provided with each course of the meal......and be sure to have practiced your german as there is no translation......
The Hotel Tuxertal is a small family-run hotel. Hermann greets all the guests in the morning and took to song one evening to support local musicians who came to play local Tyrolian music. He and his family have run the hotel for close to 40 years. Simon took great care of us; picking us up from the station in Mayrhofen and helping us deal with our lost luggage - beware Munich airport. Iris made sure that we understood the translation of the main course that we selected each day at breakfast. The hotel provides a ski guide service several days a week. We skied with Armin one day and he took us to explore the Penkenjoch ski area. On other days, guided snowshoe tours are given, but we did not try them.
Breakfast was an extensive selection of cereals, fruit, yoghurt, meat, cheese, smoked salmon, vegetables, and eggs. After skiing, we were treated to cake and tea or coffee in the lounge. Our room was the Sunrise room, in a newer part of the hotel. The room was clean; the bathroom had a heated stone floor. The room had a view to the east towards the ski area at Rastkogel that connects to the Penkenjoch area. The hotel is situated mid-way between the Eggalm gondola and the Rastkogel gondola. The ski bus stops within 50m of the hotel making access to the whole Tux ski area very easy. The cross-country ski trail along the valley runs behind the hotel and is easily reached. We would return
