Experience culture, nature and the unique power of a very special place between salt slopes and lake. Discover the peace and calm of the Hallstatt Hideaway, and find yourself. With six unique private suites to choose from, you are sure to find the perfect "home away from home". The "Holz" suite is the oldest – dating back around 500 years. Baroque doors from the 18th century plus elements of modern design: this suite is a wonderful testimony to the history of the hotel. Hideaway was built in 1740 by the "Forstmeister" (forest conservator) of the Austrian empress on the site of two much older dwellings. Guests today are spoiled for choice: a suite with an extensive terrace and modern architecture? Or with a library, fireplace and views of the lake and mountains, or the one with a unique stucco ceiling? Or 100 sqm of pure luxury with an outdoor whirlpool and breathtaking panoramic views? Discover the power of historical architecture beautifully and skilfully combined with modern design.
Enjoy magical views out over the rooftops of Hallstatt, the lake and the mountains from two floors covering 100 sqm. An unforgettable stay is guaranteed with the outdoor whirlpool and two terraces. Where better to relax than in the huge couch, or the tub for two in the marble bathroom. The suite also has a kitchenette with steamer.
THE SECRET HIDEAWAY IS A PLACE OF SILENCE FOR THE EXPERIENCED
Salt has been mined in Hallstatt for 7000 years, and the town’s links with the rest of the world are just as ancient. Today, the “world’s most beautiful lakeside town” (Alexander v. Humboldt) draws one million visitors each year. Hallstatt has UNESCO World Heritage status, and the Celtic burial sites up on the Salzberg (literally “salt mountain”) are among the world’s most important testaments of human history. Visitors can take a trip down the mine for a fascinating insight into the history of a village. You can experience the breathtaking beauty of the countryside up close with a whole range of activities. In the wintertime, there’s the alpine ski run in Krippenstein, snow shoeing at 2100m or the ski resort of Gosau. Climbing, mountain biking, swimming and diving, golf and hiking, and guided tours of the Mammuthöhle and Eishöhle ice caves, are all on offer throughout the rest of the year.
