At Home on the Mountain

A warm welcome to our guests

We are at home here on the mountain and so are our guests. Winter like summer, they visit the fantastic mountain world in Lech to escape the daily routine. Beyond that, we endeavor to make our guests feel at home for the duration of their stay and offer a place to which they will always want to return.

The Strolz Family

The Austria Family

When Georg's parents, Othmar and Elsbeth, laid the foundation stone of the Hotel Austria in 1964, no one had ever imagined that it would become a holiday home for many guests from all over the world. Since then every second year, the hotel has increased in size and everything has been done to make it the perfect place to spend a nice and relaxing holiday. Over the years, not only has our own family grown, but also the Austria hotel family has grown with our many regular guests and our long-term employees. 

Family Atmosphere

When CLAUDIA and GEORG took over the business and after their children Aurel and Johanna were born, the hotel founded its own kindergarten, the Teddy Club, in the summer of 1996. At that time, the kindergarten teacher supported the family by caring for the children, but gradually the Teddy Club became increasingly more a fun place for all children in the house. Because of this additional service and the newly added hotel apartments, the Hotel Austria became holiday getaway preferably booked by families who like to spend an exclusive vacation in a family atmosphere.


However, what we are not and do not want to be is a children's hotel, where the young guests are delivered in the morning and picked up back in the evening. Our guests are couples, single travelers, grandparents spanning three generations. It has always been our concern to create a place where everyone can feel comfortable. There are not only rooms for adults or "young adults", but also rooms especially for smaller children. So everyone can experience the "best time of the year" together - everyone in her or his own way. That is why we are particularly proud that at the Hotel Austria often three generations spend their holidays together. Aurel and Johanna, who had been leading the way to establishing a family hotel - have already grown out of the Teddy-Club age. Since the summer of 2019, our son Aurel has joined the company, is currently responsible for the restaurant and is slowly following in the footsteps of his parents. We not only inherited the Hotel Austria from Elsbeth and Othmar but also the passion to be caring hosts. We would like to give our guests a home away from home during their holidays – a place where they can feel comfortable and where genuine care is noticeable. The fact that 80% of our guests come back to enjoy their holiday with us every year, encourages us to pursue the way we have chosen. There are many helping hands, people helping us to pursue our endeavors. Many of them have been around for several years.
