The Refugium is located directly on the church square in Lunz am See, the Ybbs and the Gothic parish church from the 15th century to the side. The history of the house with its 23 rooms also goes back 5 centuries.
The owners, Joachim Mayr and Heinz Glatzl, felt obligated to this history when remodeling. They did not want to create just another design hotel, but rather a tender coexistence between old and new, a place of contemplation and refuge, precisely the Refugium.
The vision of a place where the desire for new things and the appreciation of the past find common expression has taken shape with the Refugium. Heart and soul, dedication and the clear aesthetic concept are reflected in the design of the rooms. It is a skillful play with textures, structures, shapes and colors. The commitment to authentic craftsmanship and attention to detail can be seen and felt throughout the hotel.

Fanny laughs a lot and likes people. That’s a good prerequisite for pretty much everything at the Refugium. Especially for making the guests feel comfortable. Christian takes care of the physical well-being.
In the kitchen, Christian Metzger is in charge and he follows a simple philosophy: not more of everything, but enough of the essentials. A special kind of luxury. Care, passion and time go into everything that is put on the table.
In addition to his work as Sous Chef at the famous “Motto am Fluß” in Vienna, he ran the restaurant “Die Metzgerei” together with Fanny with great success.
After careful restoration, the classic structure of the house blends seamlessly with the local architecture and complements the beauty of the surroundings.
