Your happy moments
1) Moments of family happiness in our Ski Hotel in Austria
Anyone who has been here with the family simply keeps on coming back. The Hotel Forsthofgut is a winter paradise for children. Our location directly on the slope and only 150m away from the ski kindergarden is the perfect starting place for skiing fun. We have a daily ski school service in our hotel so you can book courses for big and small easily and conveniently. And our very own ski rental as well as the lift ticket service at the reception desk make it easier for Mama and Papa to organise the ski holiday. So you have more time for your family and nothing gets in the way of your unforgettable family winter holiday. Our sled rental rounds off the winter offers. And if you fancy something quieter with your loved ones, an idyllic sleigh ride through the winter landscape of Leogang is the perfect counterpart.
Relaxed and happy, head back to your family suite that has plenty of storage space for your winter equipment and family happiness.
Also: Supervised children's meal, family sauna and child care from 2 years
2) A luxury hotel with Europe's first waldSPA
With our waldSPA we have implemented an exclusive design and spa concept which is unique in Europe: a 1,800m² wellness world in which you can relax and recuperate with the help of the four elements and the power of the forest. The hotel's forest glade offers an original spa experience for all the senses, where natural care products such as "pine-cedar oil" or "juniper healing clay" are just some of the the things that will ensure complete relaxation.
Our premium hotel is one of the top 20 spa hotels in Austria and has been awarded 3 lilies in the Relax Guide.
3) Hotel owned game reserve
Feeding the wild animals in the hotel owned game reserve with Christoph Schmuck, the hotel's owner, and get close to these shy animals of the forest. These encounters with the magnificent red and fallow deer in the silence of the forest leave a deep impression on both, adults and children.
Christoph Schmuck“The daily walk to the deer is my inspiration and haven of peace at the same time. I enjoy sharing this experience with our guests and imparting my love and understanding of nature. Every one of our deer has a name, like "Flocke", because she's had white fur since birth.— Christoph Schmuck, hotel director
4) Premium hotel in Austria in terms of sustainability
The prudent and responsible way we treat nature, which has been so richly gifted to us, is extremely close to our hearts: We prefer local organic producers and local materials such as wood, stone and loden. We have our own private game reserve, an organic lake with natural filter, natural cuisine awarded with the "Green Toque" and we stick to the Green Spa Codex. We wish to convey love and respect for nature, as can be seen for example at our Pinzgauer miniFARM children's farm, gardening courses with Rosmarie Schmuck and feeding the wild animals or forest hikes.
5) The Forsthofgut's cuisine: delicious, award-winning, natural cuisine
Allow yourself to be pampered with regional culinary delights at our luxury hotel and discover the full flavour of natural ingredients - mostly in organic quality from local suppliers. Awarded the "Green Toque" seal of quality, our natural cuisine will thrill you with classic Austrian cuisine just as much as it will with the vegetarian wholefood options or the game dishes made with our own deer. Gourmets will also love our exclusive cheese tastings and rarities from the wine list.

Christina Schmuck“I grew up on a farm. That's where my love of tradition comes from, and the desire to realize it within the framework of modern architecture. When I choose furnishings, I pay very close attention to the combination of tradition and a touch of modern design. We work together with a regional interior designer, who provides us with hand-sewn, high-quality furniture which fits perfectly in our design concept.“— Christina Schmuck, hotel director
