Clocks that stand still
Everything points towards slowing down
Slow Food
Time is our most important ingredient
Time for me
In doing nothing, nothing remains undone
Step by step
Through the nature of the Nock mountains
Time to be together
At the end of the day it's what you have experienced that counts
Peace on the piste
Your descent on the south side of the Alps

A holiday with a new sense of time

Slow down at your hotel in Bad Kleinkirchheim

Wake up as the first rays of sunshine peek through the curtains. Get going when you feel like it. Eat when the fresh air awakens your appetite. And rest as the sun starts to sink again behind the Carinthian Nockberge mountains. At the 4-star Hotel Eschenhof in Bad Kleinkirchheim, nature that sets the rhythm. Here, time itself appears to be more relaxed. Because when properly "used", we have enough of the most valuable commodity.


We look forward to giving you TIME!


In addition to the hotel rooms in the Eschenhof, we also have eight stone pine apartments in the Mauerwirt.

At the Eschenhof you are invited to re-connect with nature and step into an alternative world of perceived slowness, where families and couples in particular can once again find time for themselves.

At last, time for...



Everything has been thought through: dedicated spa areas and nature-based experiences



No trace of stress or hectic: disconnect in the Nockberge biosphere park
