At the Sonnenalp,
we know that it takes more than a destination to make an impression, more than a vacation to make a memory, and more than a name to make a hotel.
Through five generations of continuous family ownership, we’ve celebrated the spirit of Gemütlichkeit with a heritage of inspired hospitality and European charm. When you stay with us, you’ll discover a getaway that feels like coming home and a hotel that’s refreshingly different, yet warmly familiar.
We believe in greeting our guests as part of our extended family, that the view from your room can change your outlook, and that decades of tradition can create a totally new experience.
It can seem like wherever you travel, you arrive at the same place — the same room, the same restaurant, the same activities. Let’s reimagine your next trip.
With a nod to our past and an embrace of the timeless traditions of European hospitality, every detail of your stay is curated and considered. From unique rooms that capture your imagination to the specially chosen pillows on our beds and hand-selected art on our walls, you’ll be rested and restored by the comfort and beauty of the Sonnenalp.
And whether you’re drawn to the relaxed luxury of our spa, the eclectic range of our restaurants, the high-country greens of our golf course, or the magical events put together by our expert team, your experience with us is as individual as you are — and our exceptionally rated guest service ensures it’s everything you can imagine it to be.
One of Vail’s most loved wedding spaces, Ludwig’s has been recently renovated and transformed into a unique mountain private event destination. Ludwig’s offers expert service and warm hospitality in an exquisite setting that has the power to combine the natural al fresco beauty with the warmth and convenience of a traditional dining room.
Ludwig’s architectural highlight is the Terrace - a glassed-in room that features breathtaking views of Vail Mountain and the Gore Creek. Its retractable ceilings and walls are both magical and versatile. The adjacent Sun Room and Stüberl offer elegant, subdued lighting and the Sonnenalp's
signature Bavarian charm.
