Hosts with values
A warm, welcoming family-run hotel
Your hosts, the Hörl family, emphasise traditional hospitality and down-to-earth friendship. At the same time, they aim to provide excellent quality in all areas of service. Over the years, they have come to master the perfect balance of traditional values and modern luxury. With their roots in the Leogang region running deep, all family members are proud to share their home with you. Ask them about what to do and see during your stay and they’ll happily provide their best tips or even guide you to the family-run Abergalm hut. What an opportunity to dive deep into the 700-year-old history of this gem in the Schwarzleotal valley.
We love our home and, after all these years, we are still amazed at the spectacular natural environment that surrounds us and inspires us daily.
