More Room Types

Set in the stunning Austrian Alps on Lake Ritzensee, the Ritzenhof - Hotel & Spa am See is the perfect tranquil spot to relax and revitalise. It promotes the Fire-of-Life concept, which uses heartbeat rhythms to identify and combat stress, but there is also a spa that offers a more traditional menu of massages, plus unlimited outdoor activities in the winter and summer. 

Accommodation here is on a full-board basis and guests can enjoy gourmet, sustainable and seasonal food three times a day -- the vegetables, herbs, organic meat and even the schnapps are local. The modern rooms all have balconies and are divided between two buildings: one by the castle and one by the lake.  

Sophisticated spa facilities at this upmarket resort include anti-ageing light and sound therapies and an outdoor sauna, as well as the usual indoor pool, steam room and massages. Guests who sign up for the Fire-of-Life programme also receive a special heart-rate monitor, which is used to develop a special treatment programme. As is common in Austria, there is a bar where smoking is permitted indoors, and it also serves excellent local beer. 

Guests can swim in the lake, hike in the mountains, or try white water rafting nearby. During the winter season the hotel organises free daily transfers to the ski areas of Maria Alm and Leogang Saalbach-Hinterglemm. Tobogganing, ice-skating and Alpine golf are all on offer in the surrounding Saalfelden Leogang region, and an hour and a half from the hotel is the cultivated city of Salzburg, where you’ll find Mozart’s birthplace and plenty of museums, boutiques and coffee houses.
