The Hotel Tirol is located at the heart of Fiss, a village with a population of around 1,000. Thanks to its 600-year-old centre, Fiss still exudes the original appeal of a Rhaeto-Romanic clustered village. Until 1928 there was no road to Fiss; only a path for ox-drawn carts led to the Alpine village.
Life is much easier today, and holidaymakers appreciate the close proximity to the lifts as well as the extensive programme of children’s activities such as the Fiss-Ladis ski school’s Bertas Kindervilla in Bertas Kinderland at the Sonnenbahn’s midway station. Bolder visitors board the Fisser Flieger or the Skyswing and soar to lofty heights.
The Fisser Flieger flying machine resembles a hang-glider and takes four passengers. It accelerates quickly and then races over the Möseralm at over 80km/h and up to 48m above ground level. By contrast, the Skyswing gives passengers the experience of zero gravity. It seats up to eight, and features three setting: from a gentle rocking motion to a full loop.
