The stylish organic hotel in the Salzburger Land

Organic hotel Flachauerhof

In the middle of the idyllic landscape between Dachstein and Tauern the Flachauerhof was built in the years 1967/68 and extended in 1994. Its unique central location in the ambience of the Salzburg mountains and the Enns stream was already the hallmark of the 4-star hotel. In 2006, Wilfried Hartl jun. acquired the hotel and laid the foundation for an up-and-coming modern house with his family and staff. In 2016, the entire restaurant and reception area was redesigned with a successful blend of tradition, modernity and its own signature. A real “facelifting” was announced in the spring of the same year, and since then the outer facade of the Flachauerhof shines in new splendor: bright and friendly with many old wood elements and refined details. The last construction site was completed in the fall of 2017: all rooms, bathrooms and hallways in the older wing of the 4-star organic hotel have been newly built and equipped with stylish design and interiors, without forgetting the comfort and the roots of the traditional house. The spa area was also renewed and equipped with a new old wood bio sauna, a brine steam room and an ice room. So you can enjoy a relaxing spa vacation with us. One last section of the new section will be opened in the spring of 2018, during which the rest of the rooms, bathrooms, corridors and the entire stairwell will be given a new look – of course in an old-fashioned manner!

Already in 2012, we included vegetarian and vegan (also raw food), but also lactose-free and gluten-free dishes in the organic hotel Flachauerhof, which our guests very much appreciate. Our Vegan Breakfast Corner offers a wide range of fresh home-made specialties such as spreads, smoothies, cereals and breads. In 2015, we had our first organic certification – at that time, our offer comprised 80 percent organic products. Since then, we have dealt very intensively with this matter ourselves, we dared finally in 2017 the last big step and have converted our entire offer to 100 percent organic. This authenticity and honesty are central values ​​that we live by ourselves and that our guests feel and appreciate at our organic hotel. For you we bring out the best of the culinary treasures, which can be found in the beautiful pleasure region Salzburger Land! We use genuine and seasonal products from the region, support the local Salzburg organic agriculture and pay attention to a responsible and respectful treatment in harmony with nature. This is our understanding of genuine and lived hospitality!

100 % organic quality in the heart of Salzburg

Based on the principle “completely or not at all”, we decided in the spring of 2017 to become an active member of the association BIO HOTELS and exclusively offer 100 % organic products. We support the clear guidelines and strict controls of the association, whose high standards have created a high quality seal for us as well as for our customers and guests.
In the organic hotel Flachauerhof we are the first and only organic restaurant in the region, which is characterized by a newly interpreted traditional natural cuisine without additives or flavor enhancers. With us, only freshness comes on the table! That’s why we use almost exclusively seasonal and regional products, most of which we buy directly from the farmer or from producers in the Salzburg region. High-quality meat from small farms with species-appropriate attitude is as important to us as a sustainable management of the fields in harmony with nature and the environment. With freshly harvested wild herbs from our own herb garden or from selected suppliers, we refine each dish that is fresh, gentle and lovingly prepared.
All our dishes are arranged by our chef in a way that the ingredients act as valuable energy and energy suppliers. A special feature are our vegan and vegetarian creations, which also make the hearts of allergy sufferers beat faster, since a large part of the food is gluten-free and / or lactose-free. Simply heavenly is the vegan / vegetarian breakfast corner with the homemade delicacies (cereals, spreads, bread, etc.), with which you are guaranteed to have a great start into the new day! Connoisseurs get their money’s worth here.

Flachauerhof Wellness - BIO HOTEL
Why organic hotel? After successful years in gastronomy and the birth of our children, many questions came up in 2011: how do we want to leave the world to our children? How does our hotel fit with our way of life?
The answer was very clear to us: as a host, we not only want to consume the best and healthiest foods for us and to run a sustainable business, but also pass this philosophy on to our guests. Lived authenticity and honesty are unfortunately increasingly neglected in today’s fast-paced world, as well as an attentive treatment of themselves and their environment. It feels good to go “back to the roots” – and to set the important and right priorities in life. Eating is an absolute pleasure and a good cuisine is just part of a great holiday – like the salt in the soup! We would like to give back a little bit of what we get from nature every day.
All our products are characterized by sustainability and a high energy value. Back in 2012, we began to look more closely at food and its ingredients, and how they affect our bodies and lives. We clung to Charles Darwin: “Anything that opposes nature will not survive in the long run” and even then switched food purchases to around 60 percent organic products. A first organic certification took place in 2015, and since 2017 we have been a member of the association BIO HOTELS and have therefore switched to 100 percent organic. As a consequence, our guests can be assured to enjoy guaranteed 100 percent organic products.
For a relaxing and memorable holiday at our organic hotel, not only an excellent cuisine counts, but other beautiful things such as art, design and colors. Therefore, it was very important to us to create a connection between great food (which is also an art in itself!) and beautiful pictures, decorative objects and refreshing colors. Our hotel corridors are now breathing new life, because instead of boring white walls you step through an art gallery with modern and contemporary images. Through the cooperation with the Gallery Lau, Munich, we were able to win the artist Richard Fuchs for our idea and realization of the concept organic and art Hotel. Selected works can be admired from the winter season 2017/18 in our newly renovated hotel wing – and if you want, you can even buy a picture immediately to enjoy this extraordinary holiday souvenirs at home!
