Run by the warm and welcoming Schmuck family, the emphasis at this ‘nature hotel’ in the Austrian Alps is on wellness and outdoor activities.

Ideally situated at the foot of the Leogang mountains, surrounded by rolling meadows and pastures, there are no roads close by so children can run around freely and the choice of activities is almost endless.

The 30.000m² landscape includes a private forest, game park, natural lake and mini-farm and outdoor pursuits such as skiing and snow-shoeing in winter and hiking, mountain biking, tennis and golf in summer are all on your doorstep.

The complimentary child-care service (7 days a week, from 9am till 9pm) means parents can easily find a quiet hour or two to relax with a good book on the lake’s reed islands, indulge in a rejuvenating treatment at the forest Spa or go on a full day cross-country skiing expedition.

The typically Austrian cuisine focuses on natural, organic products, sourced locally and carefully prepared in-house. Hearty breakfasts set one up for a day of activities, and dinners include vegan, vegetarian and whole food options. Every meal features children’s options.

Built in an Alpine style, the interiors are a careful balance of tradition and modernity. Oak floors and timber touches coupled with huge picture windows embracing the mountain views create a comfortable, relaxing atmosphere. Tasteful design details, top quality furnishings, flat screen TVs, internet access and details such as pillow menus all add up to a very pampering stay.

Guests can now enjoy the expanded waldSPA Family & Kids, with 800 square metres of additional bathing area including a 21-metre indoor pool, a children’s water world with baby and toddler pools as well as separate children’s pools, three slides – one of which is 70 metres long and has a slide time measuring function – a water workshop, Rocky’s pine sauna for families and a large textile sauna area for ages 10 and up. In addition, there is a nature workshop including a painter’s studio for creative works of art, for playing and romping.

Our Reviews

Marta and her family stayed at Hotel Forsthofgut in February 2017: "Cuando conocí a Ilonka y le dije que nos íbamos a casar, no imaginaba hasta qué punto agradecería su consejo de viaje!. Siguiendo sus siempre dulces y cuidadosas recomendaciones, nos alojamos en el Naturhotel Forsthofgut. Increíble!. Sabíamos en cierto modo que iba a ser una estancia cómoda y no renunciábamos a nada. Pero superó todas nuestras expectativas. Se trata de un hotel precioso en un emplazamiento maravilloso. La atención prestada al cliente, y sobretodo a los niños, es inmejorable. Las instalaciones están perfectamente preparadas para que familias con niños puedan disfrutar de las estancias interiores y exteriores en cualquier momento del año. El servicio de guardería es excepcional, y dispone de unos equipamientos también interiores y exteriores fantásticos para que los pequeños pasen un rato más que agradable sin echar de menos a sus padres, quienes aprovecharán para disfrutar de las excursiones programadas en el propio hotel. Nosotros estuvimos 10 días de febrero y no hubo tiempo para el aburrimiento. Disfrutamos de las clases de esquí para nuestro hijo de 4 años en las pistas de al lado del hotel. Después del ejercicio nos íbamos todos a relajar con un baño calentito en la piscina climatizada con salida al exterior, desde donde podíamos observar las montañas y a sus esquiadores. Nuestros ratos libres eran ocupados con largos paseos en trineo por los caminos de alrededor. Por la tarde volvíamos al hotel y comíamos hasta hartarnos. Soy una fan del queso y de los pasteles, y nunca vi tanta variedad junta! Después de cenar, los más peques iban corriendo al Kindergarten donde les esperaba la Gutenachtgeschichte. Qué más se puede pedir? Es por eso que te damos las gracias Ilonka y te felicitamos por tu maravillosa web “The Little Voyager”. Nuestro viaje ha sido inolvidable!"

 

Natalie Neuberger and her family stayed at Hotel Forsthofgut in March 2017: "Skiing holidays have always been a sanctity for my husband and I. For years we found the most charming little hotels and enjoyed sun, skiing, and delightful local cuisine and wines. Somehow we were convinced this bliss would be over as soon as babies came into the picture so we were ready (although reluctantly) to embrace a much less appealing and quaint location when planning our first winter trip with our one year old baby boy. Thanks to The Little Voyager however we found something that married both our need for the practical aspects of traveling with an infant and our longing for charm, nice interiors, good service and food. The hotel Ilonka recommended (Forsthofgut in Austria) was beyond our wildest expectations. It is ideally located right on the pistes, offers a lot of fun and well thought off activities for the little ones but was also an absolute satisfaction for us parents. The food is way above average, the service couldn't be topped (from bottle sterilising, to baby phones, to a full baby changing kit in the room, to the friendliest staff possible and so much more), the spa (and especially the quiet room) are outstanding and the interiors are chic, yet cosy, yet unpretentious, yet so well thought off that you would never believe being in a so called family hotel. It truly made us see that kid friendly can still mean a fantastic, and appealing holiday for us which we will always be grateful for."

 

Annika Stiegler and her family stayed at Hotel Forsthofgut in October 2018: "Vielen Dank für perfekte Beratung und Service, Ilonka! Wir haben nach einer Location für einen entspannten Bergurlaub mit unserer 3-jährigen Tochter gesucht und - dank Ilonka - die perfekte Location für uns gefunden (Forsthofgut in Leogang). Wir freuen uns schon jetzt sehr auf weitere tolle Urlaubsdestinationen - und werden uns sicherlich wieder auf The Litte Voyagers super Beratung verlassen. Es war einfach fabelhaft. Tausend Dank!"

 

Katrin Eckes and her family stayed at Hotel Forsthofgut in August 2020: "Dear Ilonka, thank you so much for helping us find this wonderful Hotel in the Austrian mountains as a last minute trip. We really appreciated your kind and very professional service, just like with other holiday bookings with you in the past. And we will definitely come back to you for future enquiries. Thank you very much once again and best regards, family Eckes."

María Silveira and her family stayed at Hotel Forsthofgut in June 2021: "Thanks, The Little Voyager! We checked ourselves - you make a real filter of places where the enjoyment of the little ones is not at all at odds with the enjoyment of the older ones (and full of style)! What we have experienced for four days at the Hotel Forsthofgut in Austria fully met the expectations that we had created with your recommendation and all the details you took care of before we arrived (including the reservation of our table at the restaurant for all days). It was a great family vacation. Thanks again! :) María, Evandro and Lorenzo"
