Hotel

Wurzenberg

Leutschach an der Weinstraße, Steiermark, Austria

Anyone waking up in Wurzenberg, the highest point in southern Styria, is greeted by an endless, wide and green wine hill landscape. Because the wooden lodges allow a breathtaking panoramic view. In the morning a seasonal breakfast awaits you, which is brought to your room in a box.

The Wurzenberg was once the weekend domicile of the grandparents, for whom the vineyard was considered the most beautiful place in the world. Today, the family business is continued in the third generation and is constantly growing. After a few renovations, the hotel now consists of three nature park rooms and five nature park lodges. A further expansion including the wellness area is being planned. However, the family values slow growth - so that the guests of the Wurzenberg can relax undisturbed.

The idea of the lodge was created in relation to the natural environment: The rooms are wonderfully flooded with light and still provide a cozy feeling embedded in nature, in which there is time for silence and "cultivated boredom".

In summer, countless hikes or bike tours invite you to explore the area. The many flower meadows and the vineyards also shine in all their glory. In winter, guests can look forward to the "Winter Wonder Wurzenberg" to spend a cozy time in the lodges, surrounded by high snow.

Sustainable

ArchitectureAn architectural mix of tradition through solid wood and modern elements. Warm colors harmoniously round off the concept. The facility was built by regional craft businesses. The natural light that is captured by the large windows plays an important role in the lodges.

FoodThe own, old orchard trees provide the Wurzenberg range with fruit varieties from days gone by. Delicious jams, juices and syrups are made from it. The pastries come fresh from the bakery of the nearby bread shop every day. In the morning, breakfast is brought to your room in a box to make you feel good. In general, only seasonal, regional and organic products are served. Guests can enjoy a wide range of vegetarian and vegan options. The dishes mostly come from traditional, southern Styrian recipes. The chef's recommendation could therefore be: classic baked chicken from organic farmers. The wine of the Wurzenberger Edition, which is made in cooperation with the neighbors, should definitely be tried.

The Wurzenberg supports the social projects Naturpark Südsteiermark, which protects the cultural landscape, and the ARGE Sernauberg. In addition, employees can look forward to very fl exible working hours and appointments.

EnvironmentSustainability is taken seriously at the Wurzenberg Hotel. This can be seen on the one hand in the responsible use of resources and employees, who are more about being together than being against each other. On the other hand, the Wurzenberg is respectful of the surrounding nature: maintaining biodiversity such as the many flower meadows, including orchids, and biodiversity. A solar system provides hot water, heating is done with wood pellets and the water for the flowers is obtained from a rain cistern.

Well-BeingPANORAMATHERAPIE® takes place at the highest level on Wurzenberg. Various nature park hikes as well as yoga and relaxation workshops are available on request. Guided tours of the vineyard are also recommended.
