Surrounded by meadows and the hotel's own forests on the slopes of the Asitz, the family-run Naturhotel Forsthofgut impresses with an organic bathing lake in the midst of the majestic Leoganger Steinberge mountains, surrounded by large gardens and a waldSPA that is second to none. As soon as you drive up to the nature hotel, your eyes are drawn to the impressive house, which is firmly connected to nature and has been family-run by the Schmuck family for generations.
After the warm welcome from the hospitable team, where you are greeted with a natural refreshing towel and welcome drink, there is a tour of the well-designed hotel. From the bar, to the hotel's own shop selling regional and natural heart products, to the waldSPAs area, which we visit again later.
As soon as you enter the spacious room, the natural and stylish furnishings in alpine design catch the eye. Materials rooted in the region such as rolled loden, the finest felt fabrics, deerskin, high-quality wallpaper and sun-tanned old wood coexist here with handcrafted fine furniture and state-of-the-art technology - with attention to detail and a great deal of sensitivity. This is also true of the bathroom, which is equipped with care products from Saint Charles.
The waldSPA series is a Saint Charles care series that was developed in cooperation with Forsthofgut and can be experienced exclusively on site. The organic blend of 4 organic essential oils combines the scent of conifers with lavender and rosemary, giving you the feeling of being part of nature. Let go and breathe deeply. Smell and feel the forest.
In the waldSPA of the Naturhotel, nature is felt and experienced as a source of strength. On 5,700 m² you will find peace, relaxation and sporting variety: from the spacious Adults Only area with old wood sauna and steam baths to the sports and whirlpool. For families, there is the waldSPA Family & Kids including a 70-metre slide and the large garden with SeeHAUS and Onsen Pool.
Those who want to work out before or after relaxing can do so in the spacious waldSPA fitness area, which is open throughout the day and features exercise equipment. There are also daily fitness classes. Our favourite spot and insider tip for a stay: the yoga platforms in the middle of the forest facing the unique Leogang mountains. Namasté!
The "ForsthofgutKÜCHE" impresses with fair, sustainable and local products, most of which come from neighbouring suppliers within a radius of 50 kilometres and from the hotel's own mountain farm. At dinner, you can choose from three indulgence lines - ensuring that there is something for every taste. The evening is rounded off in the "Botanist" bar. Here you will find soothing drinks with Saint Charles Spirits, local herbs and fresh ingredients to end the evening on a relaxed note.
The next morning is a walk to inhale the clean forest air one last time and recharge your batteries. This is followed by an extensive breakfast at the Genussmarkt, which offers an experience for all the senses and is enjoyed in a warm-hearted atmosphere. Start with favourite bread from the bakery, spicy cheeses and fresh vegetables. Then there are warm waffles with fruit and a healthy smoothie. There is also enough choice of fresh, regional delicacies for the vegetarian and vegan palate
We recommend a stay at the Naturhotel Forsthofgut. Enjoy your time in the waldSPA and let yourself be carried away by the relaxing flair of the traditional and at the same time modern house. The Naturhotel and Saint Charles are united by their love of nature and sustainable and local products, which are made with passion and love in small manufactories. Those who let their gaze wander over the Leogang mountains in the waldSPA of the Naturhotel Forsthofgut will now also be enveloped by the inspiring scent of nature during all-natural body care.
