Workation in the heart of the Alps

Working in the sanguine setting of Tirol

Anglicisms have long since worked their way into the German language. Terms such as bleisure, workation, digital nomads, coworking space and co. are now entrenched in the common business vernacular. What exactly do they mean, is it just a fleeting trend, or are they here to stay?

The definitions:

Bleisure refers to the connection between business and leisure, i.e. work and leisure. The word workation, which is a combination of work and vacation, means exactly that.
Coworking is derived from the terms community and working. In other words, it means that different people come together in an open, new environment to form a new group, which can give rise to unusual ideas.

Close your laptop, pop it in your bag, pack your suitcase and head off to an unknown destination. Increasing numbers of people, especially the younger generation, are taking advantage of the opportunity to work from where they like it best and where they feel most comfortable.
We knew, even before the pandemic, how flexible the world of work has become and needs to remain nowadays. Above all, we have realised how much more efficient and creative we are in a healthy and natural environment.

A temporary office has many advantages. It provides a change of perspective and gives new room for creativity and fresh ideas.
Moreover, the opportunity to tag a few private days on to a business trip ensures an even greater work-life balance.

Draw inspiration from Tirol’s magical landscapes and swap your office for a mountain hut to savour the combination of work and relaxation. Who knows what business ideas will emerge in the Tirolean mountain air?
