Design Hotel

Wurmstein 26 | 4822 Bad Goisern am Hallstättersee | Austria



Opening: July, 15 2021

A house that is completely dedicated to books, listening, reading, reading aloud, writing and thinking in connection with dialogue and play.

Together with the designer Gregor Wöckel and the company Unykat, a sustainable book-affine design was realised. As „Zweimalschön“, 20 Viennese hotel rooms on the mountain experience a resurrection. The ergonomic plug-and-play reading bed can be moved freely in the room and is optimised for the reading voice with an acoustic device. The personal book bar is individually stocked with new publications and can be taken anywhere from the room. Fancy even more books? Browse the vertically laid out library that spans four floors. The unique Cross-Industry Innovation project is more than just a hotel.

Surrounded by books and silence

At the Lesehotel, 16 rooms and 4 suites are constantly stocked with new publications from 20 selected publishers. In the roof suites, guests float in reading nests above the valley and enjoy optimal reading conditions in any weather. A paradise for reading enthusiasts and people who long for peace and relaxation. The breathtaking view over Lake Hallstatt and the Dachstein Glacier makes a stay at the Lesehotel a pleasure in any case.

Finding yourself

The Lesehotel in the Salzkammergut has set itself the task of helping guests find themselves in peace and quiet.

The silence on the mountain, the darkness at night, which makes it possible to see the starry splendour of the Milky Way, are intensified by the sensitive design. The guests are sovereign and decide situationally: starting with the position of the plug&play reading bed in the room, the selection of books in the room and the freely chosen level of service. At the Lesehotel, guests have absolute freedom to choose how they would like to organise their stay. Breakfast is available all day, even in the room. In the guest kitchen, guests can cook together or book a chef to cook with them - surrounded by more cookery books than the guests can read! Or you can let yourself be pampered all around - just as it feels good at the moment. The house and garden belong to the guests as if they were visiting friends.

Best Room – Surhkamp Suite

In the Suhrkamp Suite you can enjoy a breathtaking panoramic view of Lake Hallstatt and the Dachstein Glacier. Float at the highest point of the house and enjoy the exclusive balcony across the entire width of the room. Your stay will be a unique pleasure thanks to the new publications of the Suhrkamp publishing house! Thanks to the ergonomically shaped backrest of the Plug&Play reading bed, you can let yourself be read to for hours and enjoy your breakfast, snacks and excellent wine in your suite.





Destination Tip

The region around the Dachstein glacier leaves nothing to be desired. Simply let your gaze wander over Lake Hallstättersee or enjoy the silence on the mountains. The Salzburg recreation destination offers a place of retreat, which at the same time takes you out of everyday life and leads you into inner peace. If you like to incorporate something active into your relaxation, you’re in the right place, because both are possible at the Lesehotel. You can enjoy active relaxation on an action-packed tour in the mountain bike arena in Bad Goisern, on the climbing wall of Outdoor Leadership or on the many cross-country ski trails and hiking routes of the Salzkammergut. A cool refreshment is best taken in Lake Hallstättersee or in one of the 57 other lakes in the Salzkammergut. Likewise, the world cultural and natural heritage Salzkammergut offers a number of cultural attractions, such as the oldest salt mine in the world or the Emperor’s Villa in Bad Ischl. To make it one of the most unforgettable vacations, best book a tour for an Instagram photo hike or enjoy the Salzburg Festival.
