The Parkhotel at Tristachersee in Lienz, East Tyrol, 830 m

Spring, summer, autumn holidays in the Lienz Dolomites

Welcome to the Parkhotel Tristachersee

The Kreuzer family and staff welcome you to our website and invite you to view our range of offers.

Your host family, family Kreuzer

During 30 years in the hands of the Kreuzer family and their selected personnel, the Parkhotel Tristachersee has earned a good name in culinary and service sectors. Hence, we can refer to many recognitions and awards in this regard.

We like to designate the location of the house as a special stroke of luck. The hotel is situated in the midst of a beautiful, quiet forest directly at the lake “Tristachersee” and the natural lake “Alter See”, 5 km south of the Dolomites town of Lienz.

Cosy walking paths on even terrain at and around the two lakes guarantee many people to enjoy nature, which was spread here so generously ages ago. All units of the house are oriented to the south, facing the lake. There is no through road and our parking spaces are situated north of the house, which optimally ensures tranquillity for our guests.

For these reasons, the Kreuzer family could risk great and much-admired investments. Thus, similar to a Renaissance, in five major steps the small and at the time ruinous buildings were turned into today’s comfortable hotel with 110 guest beds. We owe this to the appreciation from and popularity with our many guests throughout the years.

You will experience memorable holidays for hiking in the East Tyrolean, South Tyrolean or Upper Carinthian area. With pleasure we give you daily recommendations for your individual mountain or hiking tour! Furthermore, you may go for a daily swim in the lake or play golf on our currently 27-hole course in view of the Lienz Dolomites. A special highlight is the guided rope climbing tour, also climbing gardens and secured climbing routes are abundant in the Dolomites.

What is nowadays called wellness we come up with to a large extent. In addition to our tremendous outdoor experience, of course we have indoor facilities such as a swimming pool (29° C water temperature), Finnish pine sauna (80 – 90° C), infrared sauna and steam bath with salt effect. Moreover, you will be certain to find beautiful rest and relaxation areas.

Info: Daily newspapers are available for free use to our guests.

As we are a family business, the house has a personal and individual atmosphere.

No tour operators, no bus groups.

Note: The premises of the Parkhotel have been non-smoking for years, this also holds true for the guest rooms.

Hotel Herbst


Christmas and winter holidays

Every winter the lake Tristachersee freezes before Christmas and gets a thick layer of ice, which allows doing winter sports safely e.g. ice skating, curling and cross-country skiing. A unique, completely transformed landscape and the activities of the guests convey a picture that is similar to the works by Pieter Bruegel.

We also have our own deer feeding, which you can even see from the rooms. In the evenings, our two fireplaces burn brightly, which evokes a beautiful winter atmosphere also in the house. From time to time we stage romantic torchlight walks around or on the lake Tristachersee or to the lake Alter See and back to the hotel, where a warm East Tyrolian "Schnapps" awaits our guests.

The Christmas weeks in the period from December 20th to January 10th comprise special offers and are very popular with our guests. If you are interested, please have a look at our Christmas programme or New Year’s programme that lasts until Epiphany.

For ski, cross-country and snowboard offers see Active & Experience. You may also enjoy beautiful and safe ski tours in East Tyrol. Recommendations and information are provided at the hotel.

Thank you for your kind attention and in the case you decide to visit our hotel, we are happy to be your attentive hosts.

Josef, Christl and Marie-Theres Kreuzer
