The most familiar nature hotel in the Alps.


Forsthofgut nature hotel, at the foot of the Leogang Mountains, in Austria

It's the forests at the foot of the Leogang Mountains that have shaped the Forsthofgut for over 400 years. It was once a forestry commission facility, today a nature hotel in Austria. For centuries the forests were seen as a financial asset, while today they provide a "feel-good value" ... a precious treasure from nature.

Best location - directly in a natural paradise in Leogang

Your family-run nature hotel in the Alps is surrounded by pastures and the hotel's own forest, with a bio swimming lake and 30,000 m² garden area, at the foot of the magnificent Leogang Mountains. 

Hiking and bike tours


Hikers can start directly from the hotel on marked routes around Leogang. Bikers experience exciting tours in and around the Leogang Mountains, with your hosts - the Schmuck Family - as guides, or in the Bikepark in Leogang.

Perfect for your ski holiday: the Hotel Forsthofgut is directly on the slope – and yet it is peaceful here. Where else can you find a ski holiday that is so convenient in which you can still enjoy the idyll of untouched nature?  

Responsibility towards the gifts of nature

For the entire Schmuck family, it is a matter of course that the Forsthofgut is run as a sustainable hotel and that we responsibly deal with the precious gifts the nature provides us with. Moreover, we enjoy to share this very special place set in the midst of nature, which has always been in family hands, with our guests.

Your hosts at the Forsthofgut nature hotel in Austria

Back in 1960 the hotel business started, when Rosmarie and Rupert Schmuck were renting out two rooms in the Forsthofgut. In the meantime, their son Christoph Schmuck and his wife Christina took over and run the hotel - he already took over at the age of 22. However, his motivation to run the hotel grew much earlier, already at the age of six. Christoph Schmuck sees it as a vocation to make people happy, with assistance by his wife, his parents and the entire Forsthofgut team.

Symbiosis of tradition and modernity at the Forsthofgut nature hotel

With a foresighted mind and a feeling for details and creativity, family Schmuck transformed the former forestry facility into a 35-acre estate and one of the leading hotels in Salzburger Land. This transformation was accompanied by their belief in "only those who know their roots, can build a future in the present". In every corner of the hotel, a linkage of tradition and modernity, the closeness of nature and the local surroundings as well as the constant family spirit can be found.

The sensation of feeling at home at the Forstguthof nature hotel in Leogang

The senior management of the hotel, Rosmarie und Rupert Schmuck, still fullfil their daily tasks with love and commitment. Rosemarie delights the guests with homemade marmalades and transforms the hotel courtyard into a sea of flowers. Rupert guides the guests on sunrise hiking tours, ski tours and bike excursions. The entire Forsthofgut team, who is seen as a part of the family, loves, with all their hearts, the contact with the guests. It's no wonder then that as a guest at the Forsthofgut, you will feel completely at home from the very first moment on...

Leogang - traditional - conscious and full of energy

For nature lovers and people who enjoy staying a hotel in a traditional, vibrant and growing village, we definitely recommend to visit the village of Leogang - one of the four holiday resorts in the Saalbach-Hinterglemm-Leogang-Fieberbrunn skiing area.

Leogang stands for breath-taking nature, rural charm and old traditions - to sum it up: maximum relaxation. Here with us in the Saalfelden-Leogang region you will enjoy the benefits of a placid, yet well-developed tourist region – for example, with the cable car station right at the hotel, a big linked skiing region, the most prestigious bike park in Europe, family adventure trails, high-profile cultural events and much, much more!
