“When wishes become reality and when people meet each other with open affection, then you have arrived at the STOCK resort,”Sabrina Rupprechter, marketing of STOCK resort, smiles. It all began in 1976 when Josef and Barbara Stock opened a restaurant which soon grew into the STOCK resort. Their children Daniel and Christine soon joined the family business and now are part of communicating the warm and personal STOCK feeling. Located in the middle of the Zillertal in Tyrol, the resort is only 15 minutes away from the Hintertux Glacier which is known as a hidden paradise for ski fans. The Zillertal impresses with majestic alpine mountains and the ‘nature park of the year 2015’. Whether one seeks to hike in summer or snowboard in winter, the hotel’s surroundings will offer something for everyone.
