Tow different worlds - the wilderness of Nature and the civilisation of the city - where the Bläuel family welcome their guests in the true tradition of an easy-going country lifestyle.
Just eight kilometres from Vienna, and yet in the depths of the Wienerwald woods, there is a hilltop called Tulbingerkogel. More than a century ago, Adalbert Stifter, the celebrated Austrian writer and champion of "poetic realism", appreciated the observation tower, from which he could see the windows of Göttweig monastery gleaming in the distance.
Around 1930, a hotel for discerning guests was constructed atop this gently sloping hill. Some 20 years later, in 1951, the hotel was purchased by the Bläuel family. Over the course of the years, the Bläuels succeeded in transforming this little hilltop hotel into an elegant country hotel with a gourmet restaurant and a reputation far beyond the confines of Austria.
At the centre of the action - yet far from the madding crowd.
