Hello nature– 

A house full of pleasures where recreation is redefined

Set on the slopes of the Asitz mountain with imposing views of Steinerne Meer and Leongenger Stienberge, Krallerhof’s fourth generation family members continue to nurture it’s transformative growth as a coveted 4-season destination.

With 124 elegant rooms and suites, a terraced restaurant, the award-winning Glocke. Die Bar and cherished collection of 500 hand-picked works of art by renowned Austrian and international artists, the hotel has been designed to be the ultimate sensory experience. Or, as CEO Gerhard Altenberger suggests, “Krallerhof is a living work of art, rich in detail and full of surprises.” 


Switch off, float away and recharge
Here the mountains and water come gracefully together to create a peaceful, nurturing environment. The spaciously modern REFUGIUM boasts traditional saunas, steam baths, an indoor and outdoor pool and rooms for spa beauty and body treatments. 

However, what we’ve come to see however, is the recently launched and already world-famous ATMOSPHERE, the Altenberger’s new 5500 square meter wellness space that opened in April 2023. 

Respecting the bounty of nature, ATMOSPHERE is a purist, minimalist building made of glass, wood and exposed concrete designed by storied Architect Hadi Terani. His incorporation of nature and landscape into the one-of-a-kind design of ATMOSPHERE is also reflected in his judicial choice of materials used: lime, ash and oak, Alpine marble, glass and exposed concrete—predominantly from the region. 

This visionary space invites guests to enjoy an exclusive journey of discovery that fosters the epitome of relaxation, rejuvenation and well-being. 


Ski in, bliss out
In winter it’s easy to leave everyday behind and walk directly off the slopes into Tehrani’s Blue Grotto as fluffy snowflakes continue to fall. With a mountain backdrop, the warm spring water of the remarkable 50-metre, Olympic size infinity pool that stretches out into a natural bathing lake beckons as does its adjacent whirlpool. Truly a remarkably unique experience that’s worth the flight.

Guests can also participate in wellness treatments, take in an infra-salt room, numerous saunas and the ice grotto. The hotel’s rotunda also has an alpine Zen Garden and a fitness room with personal trainers. 

There’s also a relaxation room, specially designed for allergy sufferers, a cold pool, a yoga room and the lakeside café. The relaxation room with a view of the mountains is especially suitable for allergy sufferers and the lakeside café with its retractable façade invites us to simply sit back and enjoy.

Austrian finesse
After a relaxed or active day, the hotel restaurant is where you’ll want to be. Creative regional menus that change daily are full of love and local flavours. Chef Hermann works only with first-class organic products, herbs and vegetables from the hotel’s garden, lamb from the Tauern mountains and meat and fish from Salzberg’s finest providers. For him small things make a big difference… like the use of mushrooms and blueberries (Schwammerl and Mossbee) same day plucked by locals from Leogang.

Mountain hut KrallerAlm next to the hotel as well as the AsitzBräu and the AlteSchmiede on the Asitz serve up hearty cuisine in charming, off-piste style that’s family friendly.

Signature drinks made from local ingredients, such as the Birchwood Negroni are a stylish way to round off the evening at the award-winning Glocke bar.

Sleep like a baby
Each room is an individual gem… full of warmth and with its own spirit, original art and amenities to ensure guest’s comfort. Thirty rooms at the Krellerhof are power-sleeping rooms exclusively equipped with high-quality Samina sleeping systems. 100 per cent merino sheep wool covers and blankets. A Lokosana overlay and shielded cables to prevent electromagnetic radiation in the rooms.

Beyond just keeping up 
Krallenburger sees itself as a leader in many ways, but in particular, in the area of environmental guardianship. For us, “responsibility and sustainability means providing answers before the questions are asked and acting before the questions are socially acceptable”, suggests Altenburger. “It’s just who we are.”

Surely, a tall order but one that seems to be helping the family make its mark in the European wellness and hospitality sector.
