Backing onto the Bregenz Forest and surrounded by breathtaking mountain scenery is Hotel Krone in the picturesque village of Au. The four star, family-run hotel is a mix of modern and rustic design. Since 1998 the hotel has been completely rebuilt in stages with all the work done by local tradesmen and building companies. As far as possible, local materials have been used for all building work (mainly wood from Au and the local region).
Bright, modern and spacious (22-52m2) rooms and suites come with a flat-screen TV, safe, and a sitting area. Bathrooms have a bath and/or shower, bathrobes, hairdryer and cosmetic mirror. Most rooms have mountain or forest views, and some have balconies or panoramic windows.
The award-winning restaurant serves authentic and traditional Vorarlberg cuisine with recipes from Mediterranean and international cuisine. All produce is locally and regionally sourced. An extensive breakfast is included in the rate and has over 100 products from local farmers.
The new, 500 m² spa is located on the 4th and 5th floors of the hotel and contains a panorama sauna on the rooftop terrace, outdoor loungers with mountain views, an aromatic steam bath, and an infrared sauna. The relaxation area features an open fireplace, a tea bar, and an ice fountain. Massages, holistic treatments, and health and beauty treatments are also offered. On the ground floor there is a heated indoor swimming pool and outside in the garden a natural swimming lake can be found.
The nearby Diedamskopf ski area features 39 km of slopes, 60 km of cross-country ski runs, and 9 cable cars and ski lifts. In summer guided hiking tours are offered and bicycles are available for guests’ use.
With a minimum stay of 3 nights between May and October you will receive the Bregenzerwald Card, offering free use of the region’s cable cars, buses and outdoor pools.
