Hotel Bühelwirt

Hotel Bühelwirt


The traditional hiking hotel is located on the Bühel at 1200 m. The extension with twenty rooms, a restaurant and a wellness area extends over six storeys and are characterized by a deep, asymmetrical saddle roof and diagonally projecting bow windows. The green gleam of the blackened wooden facade reflects the colouring of the forest. The rooms are reduced to the essentials: larch wood from the surrounding forests, handmade copper lamps and the curtains from the local loden manufactory.

Statement of the jury

Both the interior and exterior relate directly to the region, whereby the remarkable thing is how harmoniously the façade, with its slightly green sheen, blends or practically melts into the surrounding environment. A fantastic achievement which impresses all the way to the puristic design of the rooms.
