In addition to two tennis courts with climbing walls, you will also find four bowling alleys, spacious exercise and aerobics areas, indoor cycling, a recreation room with table tennis and billiards, and the sportslounge.café.
The Alpine scenery has been incorporated into the building through the use of an extensive glass façade, so that visitors can still enjoy the view of the fabulous mountain scenery from indoors.
