Der Stern

Obsteig am Sonnenplateau, Tyrol, Austria

The Stern - tavern and country hotel for generations since 1509

Take a sun-drenched, spacious natural landscape, an impressive mountain landscape and an inn steeped in tradition, season it with creative ideas and decorate it with loving programs. You get the star - a country hotel and inn that lives sustainability every day and pampers its guests with a lot of passion.

Whether child, mom, dad, grandma or grandpa - everyone equally enjoys the modern country hotel with its natural rooms, delicious delicacies from the best foods in the region and a cozy atmosphere. The highlights are a hike with the ponies, the evening feeding with Grandpa Toni, a night in a hay bed in the middle of the protected Larchwiesen, a via ferrata tour or the first ski tour in winter and a mouth robbery or toboggan tour.

In a brand new way, guests can take a dip in the new “Sternentaucher” eco-indoor swimming pool or watch the stars from the new observatory in the Sternsch (n) uppen Kindererlebnisstadel. A lasting experience is guaranteed.

You can find the hosts' favourite recipe to try in the kitchen whispers.

Sustainable

ArchitectureSuch an old inn, which of course had to be renovated and modernized over the centuries. You can now see quite clearly that it is a beautiful old traditional farm, but also that new elements have been carefully and harmoniously added. This is particularly beautifully reflected in the use of different regional types of wood. Above all the larch wood. This tree is characteristic for the entire area and so here at the Hotel Stern, where a large part of the furnishings consist of it and there is also larch soap and liquor to be enjoyed. There are also rooms made of different types of fruit wood and a room with recycled elements. All solid wood, all built by local craftsmen from materials from the region. It is Huamelig.

FoodWith over 100 years of family experience in the restaurant business, there are naturally a lot of “house specialties”. For example the apple strudel made from Grandma Adele's recipe, which every guest should definitely try. And not only are the recipes at Stern regional, but most of the products also come from the neighborhood, if possible. Because here you know the people who produce the food and can convince themselves of the appreciation with which they do it. The new tavern concept "Mit Butz und Stingl" has the motto "even more regional, even fresher and completely happy". What nature has to offer is cooked. Always different, always new with a regional restaurant menu that changes weekly.

The working atmosphere at Stern also works according to the family motto: "I take care of you, you take care of me!" The cooperation is friendly, there are 5-day weeks, opportunities for further training and regular joint excursions. There is also a special focus on apprenticeship training. In addition, the Hotel Stern supports the development of the region and the integration of refugees.

EnvironmentAt the Stern in Tirol there is no joke when it comes to environmental awareness. This is about hard facts and figures. Those who arrive without a car receive a discount. And in the climate game, for example, guests can earn eco-stars who always take the stairs instead of the elevator, drink tap water instead of Coke and Co., do without daily room service and change of linen and prefer showering rather than bathing. Even those who go cross-country skiing instead of alpine skiing and go on excursions with public transport or with the rental bikes on site receive sustainability stars in their own personal climate game, in which the many small and large opportunities that each individual can use become clear to protect the climate by reducing personal Co2 emissions. Apart from that, thanks to local heating with wood chips, central heating, ventilation and cooling with heat recovery and sustainable management in all areas, the hotel is one of the few climate-neutral hotels in all of Austria. The new Sternentaucher eco-indoor pool was developed in such a way that it can be put into operation without using additional energy or space. The energy that is consumed is 100% renewable and it is based on recycled materials and minerals. There is also an e-car charging station in front of the house. To compensate for the existing ecological footprint, an international and a regional climate protection project are supported.

Well-BeingThe hotel's sauna and relaxation area is on the top floor. From here you have an overwhelming view of the mountains all around while relaxing and detoxifying. If you want to dive into the subterranean water world of the mountains and discover the stars there, the new Sternentaucher eco-indoor pool is just right for you. On request, a massage or a Shiatsu treatment can be booked. Another very beneficial offer, however, is to spend the night in a hay bed. And then the star has a few so-called “power spots” up its sleeve, but nothing is written about them, but their location and secrets are only revealed to guests who are worthy of inauguration on site. Stern also has numerous ideas and unique spots ready for "larch bathing", that is, the jump into the cool green while swimming in the forest in the STERN larch meadows.
