THE CONCEPT

Gertrud Schneider

One of the few people you will meet at Kristiania Lech is Gertrud Schneider, the owner and manager of the hotel. As the daughter of Austria’s first alpine Olympic champion and founder of the hotel, Othmar Schneider, Gertrud is no stranger to the great Austrian "Sommerfrische" and the art of fine hospitality. Although she can usually be found attending to the personal requests of guests, who she considers extended family, you may also catch her hiking and gardening, managing her art collection or finding a new way to make the Kristiania experience WOW.

Rooms

starting at EUR 700/night all-in

Step inside our rooms and you may never leave. What more could you ask for than a creatively designed space, a comfortable king-size bed overlooking the summer mountains or village, in-house movies, an in-room bar, a luxurious bath tub, vegan-friendly amenities and a personalised concierge? Perhaps a yoga mat? You’ll find that too.

Junior Suites

starting at EUR 900/night all-in

Our Junior Suites have that little bit extra - 45m2 to be precise. As our most popular category, you can be sure that you’ll have everything you need and more, including space for a Viennese waltz if you wish. There is also a seating area ideally suited for private breakfasts (did we mention Unlimited Gastronomy?)

Suites

starting at EUR 1.200/night all-in

You would like even more space? You’ve found the right place. With room for up to four adults, our Suites contain a fireplace or balcony, a gourmet kitchenette and our finest antiques and contemporary art. Naturally, if you prefer other artwork you see in the hotel, you are welcome to adopt it for your stay!

Rooms & Suites

With only limited rooms & suites available, Kristiania Lech will not merely look private, it will sound private too. All categories exude elegance and comfort while expressing our delightful artistic attitude… and if you find it too quiet to sleep, you can call our sleeping butler who will create an atmosphere that is just right for you. Inspired by the Grand Tour. Choose between Africa or Asia while experiencing "Sommerfrische" in the Arlberg mountains.

NICE TO KNOW

Summer Highlights

Claudia Larcher's face2face project plays with the culture of using emojis instead of text.  Ludwig Wittgenstein already suggested that the potential confusion could be countered by an early form of emoticons. – They are masks of what we really think and feel. This is where Claudia Larcher’s new face2face project comes in.

Werner Reiterer is Austrian by birth, global by recognition and quite out-of-this-world when it comes to his creations. His delightful artwork, which plays with form, meaning and environment is bound to trigger a reaction – sometimes humour, other times bewilderment!  

Jangyoung Jung and Andreas Geisselhardt work together as atelierJAK. The works are created in the constellation as a group, the mutual debate and interpersonal ambivalence in a separate intellectual space - between reality and substantiality.

Think “artsy Sommerfrische”:  Banksy meets Frank Sinatra and Empress Sisi for a soul searching hiking tour in a breathtaking alpine setting, Lech.

Privacy reaches new heights . . .

A seat and something sweet?

Private dining ma’am? . . .

In case you missed it, privacy is paramount at Kristiania Lech. As a result, you can enjoy our retro-chic spa all to yourself. Leave your worries (and everything and everyone else) at the door and immerse yourself in Susanne Kaufmann’s Austrian organic and sustainable products, an après mountain ritual treatment, a spa bath of bliss…and perhaps a bottle of Champagne under our Jacuzzi’s disco ball?
