Outside White, Inside Green

STORY BY Debbie 1st February 2021

Turn your room green and enjoy the benefits of enhanced sleep, improved physical and mental wellbeing and a more fulfilling holiday at Naturhotel Forsthofgut in the gorgeous Austrian mountain village of Leogang. The team at the family-run resort will fill the room with health-giving plants and tend them every day. Forsthofgut’s Green Room Package is offered in 7 room categories, and priced at €89 (£80) per room per stay.

Embracing the Power of Plants

With sub-zero temperatures outside, and bedroom windows closed, dehydration is a common problem in winter. Forsthofgut’s Green Room concept is the ecological way to do the job of a humidifier. The natural powers of green house plants such as yucca, drazena and peace lily are proven to reduce the concentration of CO² and restore more than 90% of moisture to the atmosphere of a closed room. The improved humidity also keeps nasal passages moist – one way to combat the cold virus. In warmer weather, the plants bring serenity and a coolness to the space, inspiring a calm, harmonious equilibrium for a happy, healthy holiday escape.

Easy Access

Only an hour from Salzburg Airport, the enchanting ski-in/ski-out Forsthofgut sits between meadows and forest at the foot of the Asitz Mountain pistes in Leogang, Salzburgerland:

  • Ski-out to explore 408km of piste across the linked Skicircus (Saalbach-Hinterglemm-Leogang-Fieberbrunn) and Zell am See-Kaprun resorts. Head into the forest for snow-shoeing in a wonderful powder playground, guided by the hotel owner Christoph Schmuck.
  • Ski-in to unwind in Europe’s original waldSPA (forest spa) where the décor and treatments are inspired by the surrounding nature and woodland. Couples relax in the tranquillity of the adults-only section, while kids use up surplus energy in the separate family zone, with or without the parents.

Nature Hotel

Forsthofgut puts the environment, sustainability and green living at the top of the agenda. Having evolved over 400 years from a forestry station to Austria’s premier 5* nature and family hotel, it promises exquisite dining with organic and vegan menu options. Guests enjoy wine tastings in the cellar, a speciality cocktail bar for bespoke creations, childcare from 9am to 9pm and a weekly programme of activities for young and old.
