A warm Welcome at small paradise

Das Parkhotel am

Living with the lake…

The little paradise, framed by mountains, forest and lake, invites you to relax, to enjoy, to be active, to be yourself.
“Arrive and be warmly welcomed check in and to on an exploration tour”. We look forward to welcoming you soon at Tristachersee.

Enjoy the little things that can be discovered around the lake. Walk the enchanted path through the romantic gardens, past the water mill, the fish ponds and mountain walls to the "old lake" or in the winter after an eventful day skiing - leave your tracks on the frozen Tristachersee - that is pure deceleration in the middle of a breathtaking natural landscape in East Tyrol. The "Hideaway" you were looking for.

We, the Kreuzer family and our Parkhotel team are the contact persons for your wonderful and relaxing days in East Tyrol and are happy to be there for you whenever you are craving for some days at the lake.

One discovers the beautiful Tristachersee and the terrace, which adjoins directly to the water, the affectionately invested and cultivated outside area of ​​the wellness area, which among many other thigs gives it´s nickname: "the small paradise".

Lush green grass or gentle snowy landscape as well as lots of ponds, which are connected by small boardwalks, characterize the appearance of this garden. The small, winding path is lined with old trees that bloom beautifully in the spring or glitter in the winter due to the hoarfrost. In the ponds, local fish - which finds their way to the kitchen in the evening and gets transformed into delicious food. Char, trout and Danube salmon. Here you can live with the water in all its various forms.

It ripples from its own sources such as the Maximilianquelle and the Odlquelle. Thus pure spring water from the "Rauchkofel mountain" is available in every room and throughout the hotel.

wir uns nehmen,
ist Zeit die uns
etwas gibt.“
