General

Hotel Forsthofgut

offers great style, amazing nature and true family-friendliness in one.          .


Total capacity:

  • 96 rooms in total (15 different room types of which 6 are family suites)

Useful things to know:

  • The mountain location means there is a huge choice of outdoor activities suitable for all age groups, both in winter and summer
  • Family suites are ideal for parents travelling with children
  • Free childcare service runs from 9am to 9pm, five days a week and includes a varied kids programme for children 2 years old and up
  • All meals include child-friendly options

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 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 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.

The 96 rooms are divided into several categories including family suites sleeping four to six in two bedrooms, with separate living areas and bathrooms, and a chalet suite sleeping up to 8 in 3 bedrooms.

Our Reviews

Marta Pinteño 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 J. 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!"

Activities for kids

The hotel grounds offer plenty of activities for children year-round.

Spa&Sauna

The family sauna and choice of spa treatments for kids means the whole family can enjoy a day of pampering and wellness together.

Pool

The indoor-outdoor pool means families can swim together, even venturing outdoors while the snow is falling!

Play time

The indoor playroom, with slide, climbing castle and games, keeps young ones entertained on rainy days, while in good weather they can have fun in the forest playground, where there is a giant sand pit, climbing frame, nest swing, slide, rope bridge, tree houses and more.

Mini farm

The onsite miniature farm, built in the style of the local village farms, gives children the chance to connect with, pet and care for farm animals. They can collect the chicken eggs, feed the rabbits and goats, and even groom the ponies.

Child care

Children aged 2 years old and above can be left in the capable hands of the hotel’s child carers where they will be kept entertained with games, activities and supervised kids lunches.

Summer activities

During the summer months kids can swim in the natural lake, which has a dedicated children’s area, meet the wildlife at the game reserve or play tennis on the new courts.

Winter activities

For kids old enough to ski, the ski kindergarten is conveniently located just 150 metres from the hotel and will get little ones started with the basics.

Day and night time tobogganing is available right next to the hotel. Older children can strap on snow shoes and join guided hikes (some by torchlight).

Activities for adults

WINTERTIME:

Skiing

Winter time is ski time, so whether you want to perfect your technique at ski school or just go it alone, you are perfectly positioned to hit the slopes first thing.

The wide sunny valley where the hotel is located is also ideal for cross country skiing and there is access to 30km of cross country trails. The hotel is located right on the slopes and they offer in-house ski hire, sledge hire, ski pass sales and ski school bookings.

Snowshoeing

If skiing is not your thing, the gentle hills and frozen lakes are also ideal for winter hikes, and snow shoes will make hiking through deeper snow easy.

Fitness

The 70 square meter indoor fitness centre is equipped with all the latest gear. State of the art Technogym cardio and weight training machines are available around the clock. A variety of free classes are also available including gymnastics, aqua aerobics in the pool, pilates, stretching, Nordic walking and much more.

Sleigh rides

Horse-drawn sleigh-rides though the beautiful snow-covered countryside are a romantic activity for couples.

Massages & Sauna

Pamper yourself! The hotel offers a wide range of massages and treatments at their forest SPA.

SUMMERTIME:

The hotel’s grounds really come into their own in the summer months, when you can brave the on-site lake for a swim, or sunbathe on one of its reed islands, visit the three hectare game reserve or play a game of tennis on the new hard courts.

Fitness

Complimentary yoga, pilates and aerobics classes are held outdoors on the terrace with views of the mountains.
A natural fitness course in the forest is also a great way to get in shape, alone or with a personal trainer, while enjoying the great outdoors.

Walking & Hiking

Hiking trails begin right from the hotel and are an ideal way to explore the stunning natural surroundings. The Schmuck family are always happy to provide tips and advice on the best paths to follow, and also offer guided tours.

Nordic walking equipment is available for guests to use and the hotel staff organise a guided Nordic walk weekly.

Biking

Mountain biking is the other big activity here and bikes are provided free of charge by the hotel. The nearby Bike Park is also one of the most renowned in Europe.

Golf

For keen golfers, the hotel has negotiated discounted green fees with two local golf clubs, and several others are easily accessible.

The Area

The hotel is in a truly enviable location in a rural region of Salzburger Land, where you will enjoy pure mountain air, wide open views and a vast choice of outdoor pursuits.

The hotel is right on the ski slopes, so in winter guests can ski right up to the terrace doors. From here there is direct access to the largest interconnected ski area in Austria - Saalbach-Hinterglemm-Leogang - with some 200 km of pistes and 60 ski lifts.

In summer, this terrain is ideal for hiking and mountain biking and the hotel owners are available to take guests on guided tours of the area.

The hotel is approximately one hour drive from Salzburg and one and a half hours from Munich.
