Bold timber and steel architecture borrows from the traditional wooden face of heritage and culture, in a close design relationship that fosters past Alpine traditions whilst using their roots to anchor modern mountain luxury. Interior styling is all about being local with a sense of fresh modernity, applying regional materials crafted for centuries with the likes of scented woods, loden cloth, linens and quarried stone.

A colour palette of nature ushers in accents of pine forest greens, biscuit, cardinal reds and slate greys – soft and muted, the design frames the views wonderfully and with an easy sense of style meets rural simplicity.

Treatments here are done using another hero of nature - the Austrian apothecary, Alpienne - created by passionate Alpinist Reinhard Schuler back in the late 80's. Using all natural products from Austria's Tyrol, they handmake everything using time-consuming processes that allow them to extract the phyto-substance and bio powers. Signatures here include the Marmot Oil - Gentian Root Sports massage and the Edelweiss Facials.  

The Forest Spa is a journey in itself and offers a soulful adventure in to the woods with a magical bond to nature.

LOCATION

Forsthofgut's setting in Leogang appears to have been created by nature itself, set within a 30,000m² meadow at the foot of Austria's Leogang Steinberge Mountains (affectionately known as the Leogang Rockies).  

The hotel's landscape sports a forest and organic lake and has direct access in winter to the Skicircus Saalbach-Hinterglemm-Leogang-Fieberbrunn ski region.

Village life being just on the door step.
