In the picturesque region of Carinthia, Austria, an unexpected vision took root in the imagination of a local hotelier. After repairing the roof of his hotel, he ascended on a crane to admire the view from above his 300-year-old lime tree. As the panoramas of Althofen’s old town stretched out to the distant Karawanken-mountains, an idea sparked: Why not share this magnificent view with his guests?

Fast forward two years and a myriad of procedures, the dream became a reality. Since June 2011, the Prechtlhof tree house hotel, perched atop that very same ancient lime tree, has been inviting guests to experience a unique blend of nature, luxury, and breathtaking views.

A wooden staircase ushers guests to the first level of this tree-bound haven, revealing a suite complete with a cozy bathroom and shower. But the true magic of this place unveils itself on the second level: a roof terrace boasting a private wooden bathtub, offering uninterrupted views of the quaint town of Altenbach below. This space truly stands as the crown jewel of the Prechtlhof tree house experience.

In crafting this treetop retreat, the ancient lime tree’s welfare remained a priority. Although a few branches were lost, the integrity of the tree remained intact. This was made possible with the expertise of the timber company Rauter, specialists in crafting wooden structures. The tree house, constructed using robust larch wood, was coated with ADLER Pullex wood oil, ensuring longevity with its triple UV protection. It’s a testament to thoughtful craftsmanship ensuring many more romantic weekends for couples in the future.

But the wonders of the Prechtlhof don’t end in the trees. The hotel on the ground promises an indulgent experience with its spa and wellness center, featuring a freshwater jacuzzi. Wine enthusiasts will delight in an array of regional wines curated by a certified sommelier. For relaxation, guests can immerse themselves in the indoor pool, equipped with state-of-the-art water technology, or soak in the warmth of a Finnish sauna. Each room is a haven of comfort, adorned with wooden paneling, plush duvets, and painted with eco-friendly colors. And for those seeking to explore further, Krappfeld is just a 4 km drive away.
