Our house

Opened in 1978 as a family business, built in the middle of a green oasis, the hotel is located in the center of Zell am See at the foot of the Schmittenhöhe right next to the ski slope. All rooms, the elevator and the stairwell were renovated in 2016. We are particularly proud of our many regular guests and no travel agency contracts! Our offer is characterized by individuality and flexibility – every guest receives an offer tailored to their needs. A total of 39 rooms and a maximum of 78 guests give us and our well-trained staff plenty of time to cater to individual wishes.

Restaurants, stores and cafés invite you to take a stroll through the city. Lake Zell with its lidos and lakeside promenade give the mountain town a special flair.
