Hotel Hochschober on the Turracher Höhe in Carinthia is among the best hotels in Austria. The Leeb and Klein family runs the hotel in its third generation and constantly finds new sources of inspiration. What’s special about it? The warm lake pool in the cold lake. The Chinese tower. The hamam. Stimulating programmes and excellent culinary art thrill people of all generations.
Plan your holidays
Whether a spa weekend or enjoyable holiday, enjoy wonderful tranquillity at the Hotel Hochschober on the 1,763 m Turracher Höhe in the Austrian Alps on the border of Carinthia and Styria. Right next to the Turracher See, surrounded by larch and pine forests and the gently rolling Nockberge.
The Leeb and Klein family run the hotel in its third generation, rooted in the region and constantly looking for new ideas for your holiday joy. The family-run business is a pioneer in many ways. It was the first to install a heated lake pool and the first hamam in the Alps. The Chinese tower is unique. The Hochschober sets standards in interior design. The furnishing was developed specifically for the hotel. And it also sets standards with regard to sustainability and staff management.
Wellness, relaxing and feel-good treatments
The spa area is over 5,000 m² in size. Swim all year round in the fresh air and in pure lake water in the heated lake pool. The very best teas and tranquillity delight visitors to the Chinese tower. Experience oriental bathing culture in the hamam. Enjoy a good old sweat in the panorama saunas with a view. The swimming hall houses an indoor pool, a relaxation pool and a children’s pool. Splash and splutter about outside in the rock pool. There’s also a gymnastics and fitness room as well as spacious relaxation rooms with mountain and lake view. Chill on the alpine beach in summer.
The Crystal spa range offers massages from all around the world. Chinese massages, Ayurveda and hamam lavations are specialties of the house. Sensitive cosmetics treatments with first-class care products complement the offerings. The Hair spa experts are on hand to give you a chic haircut.
Stimulating programmes take place all year round, ranging from the Yoga on the Mountain weeks to ballroom dancing courses. The daily hotel programme offers exercise and stimulation from gymnastics to readings to the Chinese tea ceremony. Children are looked after each day at the children’s villa. The youth club is the meeting place for teenagers.
The Hochschober cuisine, which was awarded 92 Falstaff points, offers traditional and vegan dishes and is inspired by the great cuisines around the globe. The Hochschober culinary art is all about exquisite taste: the legendarily abundant breakfast buffet, the lunch snack and the multi-course gourmet menu in the evening.
Summer and winter joy
It’s “pine air instead of tropical air” in summer. The temperatures are always pleasant thanks to the altitude, which also delights hikers, mountain bikers and e-bikers. In winter, the altitude guarantees long-lasting snow. Skiers glide over optimally maintained slopes in the Turracher Höhe ski region. Cross-country skiers run across the frozen lakes and on high plateaus. Winter and snowshoe hikers enjoy the tranquillity of nature. Look forward to being pampered all year round and in every weather.
Hotel Hochschober, 90 years young, always manages to surprise guests anew with crazy ideas and quiet wonders.
