There were 67, it wasn’t more than that, but I’m very happy and glad that I was allowed to contest all the way with Atomic. “”

There were 67, it didn’t get more than that, but I’m very happy and glad that I was allowed to contest all the way with Atomic. “”

Hirscher told an anecdote representative of his successful symbiosis with the manufacturer. It was a racing weekend in Val d’Isere, France, when a ski that had been ordered at short notice was ready on Saturday evening in Salzburg’s Pongau. “” It was delivered later, that is, someone drove through the whole night. That sounds crazy, of course, but I won with this ski the next day, so it was worth it, “said Hirscher. In the best case scenario, he made up for half a second to a second by tinkering with the material. “” I think that was my big secret. “”

Life after Hirscher goes on for Atomic too

The skiing life after Marcel Hirscher continues for Atomic. “” Marcel is the most successful champion of all time. Now the young have to take action “, said Wolfgang Mayrhofer, General Manager of the ski manufacturer from Altenmarkt. A cooperation with Hirscher is planned with regard to future ski development. Mayrhofer: “” This is intended to pass on his know-how to the next generation. “”

“Marcel absolutely deserves it to have more peace now”

The eight-time overall World Cup winner Hirscher, who resigned a month ago, will therefore remain associated with the company. Ten years before Hirscher, another Atomic top athlete, Hermann Maier, had said goodbye to the ski pension. But Mayrhofer is convinced that the company can take it.

“” Marcel absolutely deserves to have more peace now, “” said the manager at the company’s traditional media day. There, in addition to the Norwegian Aleksander Aamodt Kilde, Eva-Maria Brem and Ricarda Haaser, returnees and newcomers to Atomic were presented. The former World Cup runner Claudia Deneriaz (formerly Riegler) is now a consultant for Italy, Spain and France.

“There are now some rockets in the offspring”

“” We no longer have the series winner in the men again. But still runners who can get on the podium in every race, “” Mayrhofer is convinced. “” And with Mikaela Shiffrin the absolute favorite for the winter. “”

Even when Maier resigned, Austria had feared the worst. Few of them noticed in 2009 that there was already a three-time junior world champion named Hirscher. “” There are now some rockets among the youngsters “”, Mayrhofer knows. “” Some are with us too. “”

After Hirscher’s resignation, Manuel Feller is now Austria’s number 1 in giant slalom on paper. But the Tyrolean does not want to see this as too much of a burden. “” Of course it’s a different situation now. You are responsible for certain things now. But nothing changes for me from the start house to the finish. “”

Marco Schwarz – the Hirscher successor?

This applies not only to him, but to all colleagues, emphasized Feller. In less than a week at the World Cup opener in Sölden. “Then we will give the Austrian fans a great World Cup opener there.” “The almost 27-year-old will be a father for the first time at the beginning of November. If the due date is unexpectedly moved forward, it will “” definitely be in the delivery room “” and not at the race, confirmed Feller on Thursday in Altenmarkt.

Marco Schwarz is also seen as a possible successor to Hirscher in the battle for the large crystal ball. But the Carinthian comes back from a serious injury and wants to take it step by step. “” We have been asked about Marcel all the time in the past few years, so we can deal with it “”, Schwarz is calm about the topic, “” although it has now become even more “”. He expected it. “Everyone is now looking for the next overall World Cup winner and, according to many, he has to come from Austria,” “says Schwarz. “”But it is not that simple. There are many like Alexis Pinturault or Henrik Kristoffersen who are now putting even more pressure on. But nobody will take a path like Marcel any more. “”

There won’t be a Marcel Hirscher again anytime soon, but this is exactly where the opportunity exists to use this opening gap, if top athletes from other nations also want to. So go into the winter with a lot of “” SWING “”!

No pre-Christmas period without a visit to a Christmas market. There are no insider tips for a long time, but there are still one or the other market that can surprise beyond the usual suspects. A small, fine selection.

There are famous and especially old, contemplative and overcrowded, medieval and modern. There are those with the largest Christmas tree or the longest fairy lights and others with the most stalls – and there is even an erotic Christmas market. It’s called Santa Pauli and combines conventional Christmas tradition and frivolous neighborhood life in the heart of Hamburg’s trendy St. Pauli district. But if you prefer a Christmas ball instead of a disco ball, you will probably not want to drink your mulled wine here.

To go with it: 9 Advent markets away from the crowds

So would you prefer to switch to a classic that reappears every year in the hit lists of the most popular, romantic and famous Christmas markets from Salzburg to Nuremberg? It doesn’t have to be. There are definitely alternatives. Not necessarily insider tips, but cities that are worth a detour – for a day or even for a 48-hour break from your own four Christmas walls.

Budapest

Crafts and light show. For the “” Sunday Times “” it is the most beautiful in Europe: the Christmas market on Vörösmarty Square in Budapest. The media award was a couple of years ago – it is still being advertised. Not much has changed in the concept anyway. A jury makes sure that no mass-produced goods and instead handicrafts are offered. If you want to get an idea of ​​the Christmas atmosphere in Budapest beforehand: Confusion is inevitable. The majority of the pictures do not show the Christmas market on Vörösmarty Square, but rather the one on Szent István Square in front of the magnificent basilica. No question about it: Both places are worth seeing – and are only a ten-minute walk away from each other anyway. Around the Christmas tree in front of the basilica there is a 200 square meter ice rink (free for children) and in the evening a light show every half hour on the facade of St. Stephen’s Basilica.

November 8, 2019 to January 1, 2020 (Vörösmarty Square) or November 22, 2019 to January 1, 2020 (St. Stephen’s Basilica)

Specialty: Baumstriezel Kürtöskalács: Sweet yeast dough, wrapped on wooden rolls, baked over an open wood fire and sprinkled with cinnamon sugar, nuts or poppy seeds.

Hotel tip: Hotel Central Basilica – as the name suggests, right next to the basilica in a side street. Newly renovated, the house was reopened in January 2017. If you have a little more change, you can stay at the Aria Hotel Budapest by Library Hotel Collection. The highlight is the roof terrace with a panoramic view of the basilica and the city center.

Český Krumlov

Mini Christmas market against a dream backdrop. Yes, the Asians discovered Český Krumlov a long time ago. And yes, it gets very crowded in the narrow streets with the cobblestones when they invade the world heritage town in packs. So first of all: just stay overnight. Enjoy the picture-book town in the morning when everyone else is not there, or in the evening when they are long gone. It is worth it .. The Christkindlmarkt is small and nice. A few stalls, nothing special (mulled wine around 1.50 euros). But simply unbeatable in combination with the old town backdrop. Stroll through the winding streets, listen to the musicians on the small bridge in front of the Hotel Dvořák and take your time to stroll up to the castle and the Jesuit monastery. And between all of this, warm up in the pretty retro setting in the Egon Schiele Café in the cultural center of the same name.

29.11.202019-6.1.2020

Specialty: Trdelník trimmings

Hotel tip: Penzion Baroko from 1360 – including creaky wooden floorboards.

Leipzig

Christmas romance with queuing. Forget the famous Dresden Striezelmarkt in Saxony and drive or fly straight to Leipzig, 90 kilometers away. Of course you are not alone here either. Last year 2.2 million visitors visited the Leipzig Christmas Market. Germany’s second oldest Christmas market is one of the largest in Germany with around 250 stalls. But before you say thank you in the face of the expected crowds: A visit is worth it. Of course it gets crowded – especially on weekends. But the visitors are spread over four markets in the historic old town: There is a Finnish and a South Tyrolean Christmas village in front of the opera and Gewandhaus with a Ferris wheel and fairy tale forest, a historic Christmas market at the Naschmarkt and a small offshoot around the Nikolaikirche (tip: try the Feuerzangenbowle which is served in an oversized Christmas pyramid). The largest portion of Christmas romance is on offer just around the corner on the market square in front of the Old Town Hall: lots of small stalls, nicely lined up with little (dispensable) knick-knacks and a lot of craftsmanship – plus a Christmas tree, tower blowers, a living nativity scene, historical curling and loving including restored town houses as an all-round backdrop.

November 26-23, 2019

Specialty: hand bread (black bread baked in a wood oven and filled with ham and cheese), yeast dough crumbs with icing sugar, waffles with vanilla cream – the lines at these stalls are usually long. Employing is mandatory anyway!

Hotel tip: Motel One Nikolaikirche and Intercity Hotel at the Höfe am Brühl – the Christmas markets are practically at your feet here.

Bratislava

Sweet or savory, but always rolled. At least the Viennese can also go to this Christmas market by boat: the journey with the Twin City Liner to Bratislava takes 75 minutes. It is only a few meters from the pier – and you are in the middle of the Christmas turmoil. You can safely ignore the stands in front of the National Theater. Instead, head straight for the main square – and definitely have an appetite for sweets: Lokša is the name of the rolled up pancakes with various fillings and is sold everywhere here. Around 100 stalls are distributed in front of the National Theater, on the main square and the Franziskaner-Platz. There is also a mini Christmas market in the inner courtyard next to the church on the main square – sheep are waiting for a few pats here. If you catch a frosty day, you can warm yourself up with a hot (and very thick) chocolate in the Maximilian Chocolate Cafe right on the spot.

November 22-22, 2019

Specialty: pancakes with a sweet or spicy filling.

Olomouc

Christmas feeling with a follow-up program. And one more tip that will take you to the Christmas Czech Republic – specifically to the Moravian city of Olomouc. Everyone has to answer for themselves whether the city with 100,000 inhabitants is actually the “” better Prague “”. The baroque old town is definitely worth seeing – and of course there is also a Christmas market around the town hall (with an astronomical clock and a carillon every day at twelve o’clock) and the imposing Trinity Column (world cultural heritage) on the main square. If you have the time and inclination, you should plan a detour to the Lednice and Valtice castles around your stay in Olomouc. Absolutely worth seeing!

22.11.-24.12.2019

Specialty: Those who like to experiment should try the cheese Olomouc Quargel (literally: Quargelkonditorei), which specializes in quargel products.

Hotel tip: Miss Sophie’s, boutique hotel within walking distance of the Holy Trinity Column. A hotel jewel in vintage style.
