You can see the four-storey Hotel Hochschober Chinese tower, the unofficial landmark of the Turracher Höhe, from afar. The tea house on the top floor is a popular refuge and the rooms below host yoga lessons. Therapists pamper visitors with Chinese massages and Ayurveda. The Chinese tea ceremony offers an introduction to the special features of tea culture.
Plan your holidays
A holiday in the Alps and yet very far away. Far Eastern teachings have their home in the Chinese tower. Enjoy the peace and the view across the Turracher See from the tea house on the fourth floor. The best teas from China, Japan, India and Taiwan are served and daily newspapers from around the world are available.
Practice yoga in an atmospheric ambiance. Lessons take place almost every day. Five to six Yoga on the Mountain weeks take place twice a year, in June/July and November/December. Highly skilled employees will treat you to Chinese massages and Ayurveda treatments in the treatment rooms.
Observe, sample tea leaves and the tea, and enjoy the quiet. Hardly any other place in Austria gives you the opportunity to witness a Chinese tea ceremony. Specially trained employees organise the tea ceremony “Gong Fu Cha”. Participating in this special ritual is worth it.
Barbara and Peter Leeb, the parents of Karin Leeb, travelled to China several times and got to know and appreciate Chinese tea culture. Tea plays a central role in many festivities and rituals. Guests are always served tea in China as a sign of appreciation. This gave rise to the idea to establish such a place of encounters and hospitality on the Turracher Höhe. The Chinese tower with tea house, planned by a Chinese architect, was opened in 2005.
The Chinese tower with tea house on the fourth floor is a unique building. Trips to China inspired the Leeb family to build it.
