Peter

The volleyball star from the Hohe Salve holiday region

play_arrow

Peter Wohlfahrtstätter is a volleyball professional and spends eleven months of the year abroad at tournaments. When he comes (back) to the Hohe Salve holiday region, it is to holiday in his old native home. He grew up there on his father's farm.

After school, he usually went up to the Hohe Salve to go skiing or cycling - depending on the season. You couldn't wish for a better childhood. But Peter only learned to appreciate it when he left the Kitzbüheler Alpen ...

From electrician to volleyball pro

Once upon a time, Peter devoted himself to his apprenticeship as an electrician, football and skiing. But all that changed when he was discovered by his future volleyball coach at the age of 15. It didn't take long for Peter to sign his first professional contract and move to Vienna.

For the native Tyrolean, big city life was an eye-opener at first. From Vienna, the volleyball talent moved to Poland, Belgium, France and Portugal. At the moment he is living in Lisbon. He is aware of how lucky he is to have grown up in the Kitzbüheler Alpen. Above all he misses the mountains.

Holidaying at home on the Salve

When Peter spends three or four weeks of the Summer in the Hohe Salve holiday region, he mainly enjoys the freedom. He spends a lot of time with his family, in nature, in the mountains. His mother usually spoils him with down-to-earth Tyrolean cuisine à la Kaspressknödel (cheese dumplings) and Kasnocken (cheesey noodles).

A visit to his father's sheep on the mountain pasture is also a must. For Peter, the several-hour mountain tour means "switching off", almost like meditating. As a reward, a jump into the cool mountain lake awaits him at the top of the mountain pastures. "Drinking the water from the lake while swimming - my friends from abroad can only dream of that." This untouched nature offers a quality of life where you simply have to be content and feel good!

Peter's "sense of home" tip: A mountain breakfast on the Hohe Salve, consisting of the best regional products and a view of the surrounding mountain peaks - that is a feeling of peace.

Peter's profile

  • checkMy power places in the Kitzbüheler Alpen ... the Schafsiedel and the Hohe Salve.

  • checkWhat makes my native home special ... being at home where others go on holiday.

  • checkWhat is my emotional connection to the Kitzbüheler Alpen and why ...when I come home every year for a few weeks, I can recharge my head and my body for the rest of the year.

For me, mountain hiking is pure freedom. The further up you go, the more appealing the distant view becomes. You won't find these high emotions in any city, for me it's like meditating.
