6-N-Philosophy

Nature - the place where we feel at ease - given that nature shows its best, like it always has: harmonious, pleasant and beautiful.

Wellness – that is the word that expresses an intensive and immediate nature experience. That's when nature affects us in the best way possible: harmonious, pleasant and beautiful. 

The Nature and Spa Hotel Höflehner – our "6-N-philosophy"

Nature was and is our point of origin. It's the natural force that drives us. We gave the word "nature" some thought and realized that nature is playing the main role in all of our activities. That's where the "6-N-philosophy" emerged from. Every "N" stands for a central word that fundamentally defines our actions: the experience of nature, naturalness, natural wellness, natural nutrition, natural sustainability and natural design.

      

Natural experience

Imagine the following scenario: 1.117 m above sea level, view on the Dachstein massive and the surrounding panorama that lets you forget everyday life at first glance – that’s an experience that nature has created itself. You can enjoy that natural ambience in many ways. A leisurely hike through the cozy alms, Nordic walking or mountain biking or rock climbing at the Schladminger Tauern – you define your daily program as you wish!

Naturalness

The natural beauty of the landscape is reflected by the people. Cordiality and friendliness are steady companions while you are our guests. That is probably a result of being a true family business. We also consider our staff, that has partially accompanied us for years now, family members.

Natural wellness

Relaxation and romance, beauty and health – are best enjoyed in natural surroundings. Nature itself is making sure that you find your inner balance through its diversified secrets. At our Premium Alpine Spa we only gave nature a suitable environment. Crystal clear water in our swimming pools, mountain crystal, stable sauna or our mountain bath gives you relaxation, romance, beauty and health.

Natural nutrition

Nature comes without any artificial ingredients – and that’s also what we do. Our kitchen and cellar offer only absolute biological and natural products of the region, grown in close surroundings, perfectioned by master hands. The taste originates from nature itself thanks to the lush variety of herbs, fresh milk that we purchase directly from mountain farmers and careful preparation. Shortly: Nature to take a bite and to enjoy.

Natural sustainability

Think today about tomorrow: that is a matter of course in nature. Only the ones who know about the beauty of today are aware of the responsibility for tomorrow. We think in bigger context because we want to preserve our natures paradise for the next generation. That means a stay in a completely ecological house for you with wooden rooms of Styrian pine wood that is totally free of electromagnetic rays and harmful substances. Our furniture is made out of 100% wood – you will not find PVC flooring or walls. We put great emphasize in gentle handling with our energy reserves: that is why we heat with pellets and keep our energy consumption as low as possible.

About us
Naturalness and family atmosphere

As one of the leading hotels in our region we developed a concept that harmonizes with nature. Our energy comes from nature and with nature, is surrounded by nature and received by nature.

Nature - the place where we feel at ease - given that nature shows its best, like it always has: harmonious, pleasant and beautiful.

Wellness – that is the word that expresses an intensive and immediate nature experience. That's when nature affects us in the best way possible: harmonious, pleasant and beautiful. 

From 1729 until today

The "Knapplhof" - our parent house looks back on almost 300 years of history. Here we show you where the Knapplhof got its name from and how a mountain farm house became a 4-star wellness hotel.
