Almdorf Seinerzeit: Authentic alpine huts in the Carinthian Nock mountains © Almdorf Seinerzeit
Fancy holidaying in a mountain hut? In Almdorf Seinerzeit, high up in Carinthia’s Nock Mountains, guests don’t have to worry about doing without their privacy or lots of luxury despite the authentic Alpine ambience.
21 free-standing Alpine huts, four “imperial hunting lodges” and three chalets with private saunas and steaming “hot tubs” right at the front door. Almdorf Seinerzeit, situated at 1,400 metres above sea level, is a dream come true – like something lifted straight out of a picture book. In winter, the snow falls outside, while inside the fire crackles merrily in the fireplace. And in the morning while you’re turning over and getting cuddled back down in bed again, downstairs the tiled oven is already heating up nicely and breakfast is being prepared.
Later on, you can start off by treating yourself to a stimulating herbal bath in the closed wooden tub inside the “House of Senses”, then sink into the fragrant hay bath for one or two and chill by candlelight, and finally relax in the Panorama Sauna and enjoy views of the peaks opposite or watch children skating on the frozen village pond. And at night, why not head down to the nostalgic guest house, where you’ll exclusively be served delicious products from neighbouring farms? Alternatively, you can dine in the “Holzknechthütte” (woodcutter’s cabin), the smallest restaurant in the world with room for just two guests and the chef. The multi-course menu is prepared over an open fire.
You can even make the Almdorf your home for a short time in the summer. Your senses are simply revived – reduced to the absolute essentials. Smell the hay, feel the air, take it easy and find peace. Guests are also invited to attend seasonal traditional courses, such as bacon cutting, woodcutting or cookery classes. And there’s the chance to go on wildlife safaris and guided hikes too.
