Needless to say, that you can recharge your batteries during your stay at Hotel Sonnenburg. For this we recommend our 5-star spa area which features a spacious panorama swimming pool.

Achieve full recreation after an active day in the Oberlech mountains by choosing from our exclusive massage menu. Or unwind in our cosy family sauna with your loved ones.

Literature Hotel in Austria – Reading Pleasure at its Best

“I never stop reading as I travel.” We agree with the ancient philosopher Seneca: travelling and reading inseparably belong together at Hotel Sonnenburg. As one of the few literature hotels in Austria, we wish to share our love for books with all our guests. For this reason, we organize author readings and keep a well-stocked library with over 1.000 books. Moreover, we provide our guests with book boxes in every room and suite. In them we have compiled a fine selection of books for the whole family – a tiny library for each room and suite so to speak. Therefore, you can leave your favourite book at home. A replacement will be found quickly. As a literary hotel, we have set up well-lit reading niches along our spa’s panoramic window. Furthermore, you will find reading lamps next to our comfortable pool beds.

For your event, you can also use our cosy library or the rustically furnished Crêperie Schüna. On our adjoining terrace your participants can recharge their batteries during breaks. Our insider tip: you can meet, dine or hold events for up to 30 people in the exclusive setting of our elegant Privatissimum. Contact us and organize your business event in the Lech Alps!
