Close to nature in Krimml / Hochkrimml on the Gerlos Platte

We were inspired by the materials felt & stone during the reconstruction, renovation and redesign of our alpine guesthouse. Everywhere in the hotel you will find the connection with the alpine and mountain world of Hochkrimml and Gerlosplatte - the windows close to the ground in the new suites, the winter garden and the sun terrace will bring you very close to nature.
