We love it slow

Holidays with a new sense of time at a family-run hotel in Carinthia

There are many reasons to stay at Hotel Eschenhof. But it is above all the authenticity of the hosts and the sense of intimacy that make this holiday home so special. At our family-run hotel in Carinthia, we live, work and enjoy life close to nature. You as a guest are also invited to let the alpine nature set the rhythm of your day. Under the motto "Alpine Slowness", we the Ortner family at Hotel Eschenhof create moments for all generations to unwind.

A family that takes its time

For the Ortner family, giving time to their guests is more of a vocation than a profession. The Eschenhof was built as a small bed and breakfast in the early 1960s. The married couple Hildegard and Gerhard Ortner took it over from their parents and expanded it to its present size with plenty of diligence and love. Their sons Martin and Maximilian grew up in the hotel business and both completed medical studies. After gaining experience at home and abroad, Dr. Martin Ortner seized the opportunity to set up his own practice in his parents' hotel. His practice in Eschenhof was opened on 18 January 2023.

Alpine Slowness: A timeless concept

The concept of redefining time on holiday is an all-encompassing one at the Eschenhof. With a skilful interplay of offers, you are invited to step into a parallel world of perceived slowness. Families and couples in particular should have time for themselves again, find peace and enjoy nature. Contact with nature in the Nockberge biosphere reserve is a constant feature of guided excursions at any time of day and within the framework of childcare. Our goal? That young and old regenerate both physically and mentally, and take a part of our philosophy home with them.
