Summer & Winter 2013/2014
02 / 03
J ust over 4 years ago we opened the first solid timber hotel in Leogang, at 1,050m altitude in the SalzburgerLand. The Forsthofalm is a revolutionary timber construction, made of wood right down to the last beechwood dowel responding to highest ecological and energy efficiency demands set by ourselves and doing justice to our beautiful environment.
In 2009 we were awarded the Austrian State Prize for Energy Efficiency in Tourism in the category New Construction. In 2011 this was followed by the Austrian Ecolabel and the official European Union Ecolabel. In 2012 the publishing house Freizeit awarded the Wellness Aphrodite to the Forsthofalm in the category Ecology & Sustainability. In addition the Q-Service Association gave us the Q-Service Award in the Hospitality category.
For us 2013 is the year to complete our vision and extend the Forsthofalm by a second timber structure. This solid wood throughout principle brings with it calming, relaxing and stimulating scent of wood, an important part of the overall feel good factor. The new and complete Forsthofalm enables us to position the hotel as
an exciting and inspirational all year round destination, regardless of weather or season.
To us, nature means freedom it is our credo and our way of life. This attitude is omnipresent throughout and most dominant in the architecture, the culinary concept and the Spa services the Forsthofalm is a world in itself. It is about sheer endless vastness, deep green forests, stony summits, rushing water, wilderness, mountain air, complete isolation. The impressive 360 panoramic views are yours to grasp, life without everyday stress in a new focus. This is all about self-determination and meaningful living, inside and outdoors and as a part of nature itself for nature is freedom and freedom is life.

Moon timber naturally sustainable
A hotel made entirely of local timber, stone, glass and indigenous materials, blending effortlessly into the landscape the revolutionary timber construction and spectacular panorama bring nature inside, creating harmony and equilibrium between interior and exterior. This is a unique and new concept in hotel architecture, built in conformity with the Thoma-Holz100 system: The roof, walls and ceilings are constructed entirely of moon timber whereby following time honoured traditions, the trees are felled between November and January, at the time when no sap is produced.
T he previous, semi-circular building is extended with a new wing, increasing capacity by more than twofold. The solid wood building is held together with 210,000 beechwood dowels no glue or nails are used. Designed by nature is also the theme for the interior, dominated by warm, earthy colours and local materials such as spruce, pine & stone pine, green slate, linen, jute, clay and leather. In addition to the general feel good factor and the authenticity of materials it is of paramount importance to the owners to achieve a matchless level of sustainability and resource saving energy supply through photovoltaic and biomass functions.
