Kristiania Lech summer 2020 pop-up

This summer, escape to the Alps and experience an exclusive, art-focused pop-up at Kristiania Lech. For the first time since 1970, the family-owned boutique hotel will be opening every Thursday to Sunday through the summer season (9 July—6 September). Six suites are available, giving guests access to an immersive programme of Austrian art, music and culture. Take part in a number of expert-led workshops, attend matinee performances by classical musicians, enjoy fine dining in the mountains, and so much more.

Blank canvas

Arrive in Austria in the afternoon and settle down in your luxurious hotel, Kristiania Lech, a perfect weekend alpine retreat and the site of the exclusive summer pop-up. Depending when you visit there will be a variety of workshops to try. Allow us to arrange the perfect holiday with you by timing your visit just right, to best enjoy opportunities which range from vegan candle-making to porcelain creating, all under the tutorship of talented experts. We will tailor this experience to cater for your artistic interests. There is inspiration everywhere - from the curated gallery, the Alpine vistas, the music of the visiting orchestras and the talented local artists you meet.

Galleries and gastronomy

First enjoy breakfast on your balcony, then visit the revolving art gallery. It is a treat for the eyes, showcasing the work of local artists including Norbert Fleischmann and Frank Badur. Outside, admire more creations against the stunning backdrop of the Alberg mountains, before a cinema under the stars experience. There is plenty here to delight the palate, too. Enjoy a picnic in Lech’s serene meadows and sample a menu of local flavours at the beautiful mountain bistro.   

Hiking and wine tasting

Quenched by melted ice, the sun-kissed slopes surrounding Lech are lush and verdant in the summer months. You can admire them from your private balcony, or over a drink on the terrace of Othmar’s bar. Better yet, don your walking boots and head out on a self-guided hike. Enjoy Alpine air, the beauty of nature and the heart-soothing tranquillity of this special corner of Austria. Then return to Lech for afternoon tea, followed by al-fresco wine tasting at Angelina’s mountain schanigarten, where you’ll sample some of the best vino in the region.

Final musings

Enjoy breakfast on your balcony one last time, pack up your crafts and newly found inspiration, then return to Salzburg airport for your journey home.
