Genießerhotel Die Forelle-Family Müller

Story & Philosophy

The tradition and history of the family-run Genießerhotel “Die Forelle” begins 40 years ago. Here, at Weissensee in Kärnten, Erika and Hans Müller built the Breakfast Pension “Forelle”. In the 80s, the old farmhouse was renovated and new holiday apartments emerged.

Years later, in 2002, the Pension was reconstructed and finally became today’s Genießerhotel “Die Forelle”. Today, three generations work hand in hand to make the stay at the hotel an unforgettable sustainable experience.
