Welcome at the Birkenhof
At the southern and sunny part of the alps, very close to the Italian border,
there is a valey which is nearly left in a state of nature.
Right here, in the middle of rich smelling meadows the Birkenhof is situated.
From this sunny and fog free place, 200m aside the street, you have a marvelous view
over the valley and on the mountain range of the carnic alps.
The Birkenhof has 26 beds and is managed by the whole family with the Carinthian hospitality.
What you can expect
You are welcome with a glass of our self distilled spirit. The lounges and the rooms are furnished in a typical Austrian country house style. Our non smoking room is ideal for playing cards or board games and there is a small library for some light reading. In the winter a tiled stove makes this room to the favorite one of our guests. A shoe cleaning machine on the first floor may help you after a trekking tour.
Our chef Mrs. Jank herself takes care of your well-being with her good plain cooking. In the morning you help yourself from the breakfeast buffet with a wide selection. On halfpension you expect a three-course meal in the evening, with the choice between two main courses. Taste the fresh ingredients, like the salad from our garden. In the "months of the fish" we offer you fresh fished river trouts out of the Gail - very delicious. Every fortnight in summer we make a barbecue with salad from the buffet.
A sauna together with a relaxing area of appr. 60m² invite you after a long trekking tour or after a long day on the ski piste. And if the sun doesn't realy shine, you may use the solarium to refresh your tan.
A little foretaste of winter
With a length of over 100km the cross country skiing trail is little paradise and you can enter it just 250m away from our front door.
In Kötschach-Mauthen is a skiing area with a slope length of 6km - inexpensive and ideal for families.
Are you that kind of skier who can not get enough? Then you should try one of our famous ski area in Carinthia - the "Kärntens Skiarena" with a total slope length of 117km and 33 ski lifts. Most of the slopes can be prepared with snowguns. There is one slope down to the valley with a length of 7,6km and with the final part under floodlight. A free ski shuttle takes you to the Nassfeld. You can rent skies and shoes at Sport Sölle which is just beside the lift. Snowboard fans will find a good prepared snowboard area.
If you like it more relaxed - what about toboggan, ice skating or perhaps a ride with a sleigh through the winter land.
The rooms in the Birkenhof are furnished with lots of wood in a typical austrian country house style. Every room is equipped with a shower, WC, hair-drier, digital SAT-TV/radio and telephone. All rooms, except the single bedrooms, have a balcony with seats and a clothesline.
Breakfeast (buffet) with many home made products is served between 7.30 - 10 a.m.
Two very comfortable apartments on the third floor are furnished in a typical country house style. Each apartment consists of a complete equipped kitchen, a comfortable sitting room, one or two separate bedrooms, a shower and a separate WC. On the balcony you have a marvelous view on the mountain range of the carnic alps.
