In an unbeatable Alpine setting, a superbly renovated hotel with 4000 years of history, 38 different rooms, 2 pools and delicious food

A powerful Tyrolean setting, a beautiful building, centuries of history, from the Stone Age onwards, and utter peace. The charming, energetic Knötig family have dedicated forty years to rebuilding the castle-then-convent from ruins and now, in hushed and sober elegance, the hotel celebrates past and present. If you're finding it hard to choose from the vast breakfast buffet in the former Conference Room just think of the far-reaching decisions those abbesses on the walls had to make here. Relax in the big airy library, the comfy parlour, the meditation room, the garden. Bedroom styles range from baroque to modern – frescoes, panelling, antiques, ironwork and natural fabrics - all with gorgeous views, good beds and excellent modern bathrooms. Rooms in the old bakery are restfully contemporary; it has a big kitchen, too. There are masses of games for old and young, a lovely lake-like outdoor pool, an indoor rock pool and spa for building up an appetite for a delicious dinner (included in the price). It’s hard to tear oneself away from this beautiful place, its mellow atmosphere and intelligent, welcoming staff.
