Eye-Catching: Designer Hotels in Tirol

When you think of holidays in Tirol, you probably imagine a typical rustic mountain lodge and traditional hotels bursting with Tirolean charm – and of those there are plenty.

However, Tirol has plenty to offer visitors looking for something a little different. There’s a new breed of design hotels that is seriously cool and brings style to the mountains of Tirol, with thought-provoking architecture and a clear cultural aesthetic at the heart of everything they do. Intrigued? Well see for yourself…


With unconventional design, artistic elements, minimalist approach, less-is-more chic and plenty of exposed wood, these eye-catching hotels bring a new twist to Tirol's centuries-old building tradition. Whatever your personal design preference is, Tirol has the perfect state-of-the-art design hotel for you.

Located on the shores of Lake Achensee, the four-star Seehotel Einwaller in Pertisau has a modern exterior behind which guests will find a stylish and cosy interior. Its 29 rooms all have either a terrace or a balcony, not forgetting the luxurious beds and floor-to-ceiling windows. As you may expect, the views of Lake Achensee are spectacular. The Karwendel Mountains on the other side are no less impressive. The hotel has private access to the lake and a spa area on the roof – perfect for a romantic night under the starry sky.

Apartments & Holiday Homes

Many apartments and holiday homes in Tirol also have eye-catching architecture and interior design, albeit on a larger scale than hotel rooms, meaning they offer plenty of space for all the families and groups.

Sabindls Kaiser Lodge in Going

This eye-catching accommodation in the village of Going in the Wilder Kaiser Mountains looks like something from Middle Earth. The hobbit-style tiny house may be a little on the small side, but it offers everything holidaymakers could wish for. Packed into the 17 square metres of floor space are a bathroom, kitchen, bedroom and living area. The terrace offers fabulous views of the Kitzbühel Horn and Astberg mountains.


Tradition meets innovation in these lovingly renovated farmhouses, many of which are several centuries old. Exposed wood and modern minimalism combine to form a unique home from home where often less is more.
