Fog banks over the lake and a Chinese tower in the middle of Carinthia’s Nockbergen: anyone approaching the Hochschober via the pass from Styria could be forgiven for thinking he was seeing a mirage. But while this wellness hotel, located at 1,763 metres above sea level, is a dream for all the senses
, it is by no means a hallucination! And the fog banks and the tower are also easily explained: the former is the result of the 30°C Lake Pool
, where guests can luxuriate in the warm water under the open skies throughout the year. And the latter houses not only meditation and treatment rooms with an authentic Asian ambience, but also a tea parlour. Another feature that will delight wellness fans and those in search of rest and relaxation: the Hochschober Wellness World also has an assortment of saunas and salt caves, a Turkish hamam
, indoor pools, and a first-class beauty section – making it perfect for a long day of relaxation or for winding down after an afternoon of downhill or cross-country skiing, mountain biking, or hiking.
Guests who want to do something for their minds as well as their bodies have come to the right place: since 2010 the family-run Hotel Hochschober has been a member of the Reading Hotels & Resorts Association and possesses its own library with an open fireplace
, as well as presenting interesting readings and other literary events.www.hochschober.at
