Artsy, bright, bold and eclectic, the Cortisen Hotel exudes the Austrian charm of a modern countryhouse in upbeat colours and masters the combo of original the traditional with the contemporary, from Biedermeier to Le Corbusier.

There is nothing neutral here – expect peacock blues, sunflower blossoms, and bright acid limes sing with fuchsia pink. This spectacle of creative vivre continues with a strong narration of abstract and modernist artworks that adorn the walls.

Relax and Enjoy

The adults-only (+12yrs) chill agenda of the Cortisen is easy to grasp – sweeping leafy lawns and sun decks lap against the waters of lake St. Wolfgang, a private jetty reaches out for a spot of swimming, boating or aquatic sports and the garden restaurant terrace is invitingly lazy. Activity junkies need not strain too much to tank up on mountainous traits of hiking, ski, cycling and golfing – all within strides of the Cortisen Hotel in both winter and summer.
