Your stay

In the historic hotel, where over 100 years ago high society enjoyed their summer retreats, today loving country house style meets unobtrusive luxury. Intellectuals such as Sigmund Freud and Viktor Frankl were once guests at the Knappenhof. The unique location at the foot of the Rax invited then, as it does today, to exciting explorations of the area. The varied leisure activities from hiking to biking and the top-class cultural programme let you forget everyday life and provide new energy and inspiration.

Why a visit to the Knappenhof is particularly worthwhile:

  • Food is not only a pleasure, but also an expression of culture: Chef Max Stiegl, Chef of the Year 2021, brings regional delicacies onto the plate in an informal way and with unique combinations.
  • Best location in the middle of the hiker's paradise at the foot of the Rax: Hike, as Sigmund Freud once did, over the famous Törlweg up the Rax.
  • Country style meets understated luxury - the Knappenhof stays true to style and provides cosy relaxation with fine designs and fine fabrics.
  • Sleep in deluxe rooms and suites with attention to detail and the highest luxury such as coffee machine, first-class body care products, high-speed internet, cosy towels and bathrobes and much more.
  • From the unique sun terrace (named one of the most beautiful sun terraces in Lower Austria by A-List) you can look out into the middle of the greenery while drinking a coffee or tea, reading a book and listening to the birdsong.
  • Cultural enjoyment within easy reach: for outstanding cultural entertainment, not far from the Knappenhof, the Reichenau Festival and the Kultur.Sommer.Semmering.
