Alpine Slowness
The great freedom of timelessness

The luxury of letting go

The relaxing 4-star hotel in Carinthia

At the Hotel Eschenhof in Carinthia you can break out of your daily routines and start the day without that familiar "having to". Relaxing instead of rushing. Pleasure rather pressure and living for the moment. Disconnecting and being offline is nowhere easier than in the Carinthian Nockberge mountains. With us you dedicate yourself to the things that are often neglected in everyday life: family, sleep, healthy nutrition and mental strength. That is what we call Alpine Slowness at the Eschenhof.


Grüne Haube certification

From morning to evening: organic cuisine with locally sourced ingredients


Personal touch

From generation to generation: the Ortner family loves what they do


Conscious contribution

From building material to organically-sourced heat: we are already thinking about tomorrow today

“From arrival to departure we felt like a million miles away from everyday life. The friendly and attentive service, the excellent organic food and the relaxing wellness area gave us a few days of relaxation.”

"I have known the Ortner family for about 30 years and am happy each time I can enjoy the relaxation and the good service. The meals are always a feast and the choice of products in particular is absolutely top. All in all, it's worth staying there at any time of year."

Room to relax

Healthy sleep is particularly important to us
