A day at the Eschenhof
A little foretaste of your holiday in Carinthia
"Having time is the new luxury" - that's what counts at the Eschenhof. Here, too, each day has 24 hours, but it feels like you have more of them. Because when we get in harmony with the rhythm of nature, the clock automatically runs slower. This makes our hotel in the Nockberge mountains a place where there is room for every wish and time for every intention.
A seductive scent drifts through the hotel corridors, beckoning you from the room door to the breakfast buffet. With all kinds of sweets and savouries on your plate, you sit down at your favourite table and take your time. Aromatic coffee invigorates you and your anticipation of the holiday day increases.
The Carinthian "Bschoad-Pinkerl" is packed as refreshment for on the go, the sun is shining and you set off with a smile. Listening to the stories of host Gerhard Ortner, you roam the gentle hills in the Nockberge Biosphere Park. Will the evening hike with stargazing be just as exciting the day after tomorrow?
Even the heartiest off breakfasts loses its effect at some point in the mountain air of the Nockberge mountains. After a while the rumble of stomachs lets everyone know it is time for a snack. With soups, crisp salads, regional bread and farmer's butter as well as cakes, your energy reserves will be replenished in no time.
What pleases tired muscles more than skilled hands that knead every knot and all the tension? A sauna session and a swim in the pool are just as good after an active morning. And a nap on a lounger certainly never hurts.
Before dinner, there is still enough time for a health check-up or coaching session to improve your well-being. Meditation exercises, nutritional advice or a fireside chat with Dr. Ortner to learn the dos and don’t s for a good night sleep - what valuable things will you learn today?
Hunger is known to be the best cook. Only the kitchen brigade at the Eschenhof can match it. During the evening slow food menu, they mix and blend the best organic Carinthian ingredients. One course after the other is served, you relax and review the day.
This is how a wonderful day full of excitement and relaxation at your nature hotel in Carinthia slowly comes to an end. Full of happy thoughts, you snuggle into bed, put your book aside and switch off the light. Wondering, what will tomorrow bring.
