JUFA Hotel Knappenberg
Knappenberg belongs to an old mining community and is located at almost 1,100 metres above sea level and belongs geographically to North Carinthia. The market town of Hüttenberg, the location of the JUFA Hotel, is a world-renowned mineral site. In addition, it is the home of the legendary mountaineer Heinrich Harrer. Through his friendship with Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama, the Tibetan pilgrimage trail “Lingkor” became a far Eastern cultural element in Central Carinthia. In order to find peace and balance, your journey does not have to lead you to distant Tibet – the best way to plan a wellness holiday in the spirit of intercultural exchange is with a stay in Knappenberg, with your children and your dog! A wonderful view over the landscape and the mountains gives you peace already when you check-in. The facilities pamper families and wellness enthusiasts with a 2-storey spa, massages and a sun terrace with a café. For social moments we recommend our bowling alleys and also the play areas for kids. Our exciting tip: In the Geo Centre next to the JUFA family hotel, you can experience the transformation from raw to precious stones! The Central Carinthian region is ideal for hiking and geocaching enthusiasts. Well-developed hiking trails through the Görtschitztal valley, interesting facts about our earth, iron production, the search for precious stones and exciting castles inspire young and old. Afterwards the regional cuisine impresses hungry guests. The JUFA Hotel Knappenberg in the village of Hüttenberg is the link between the Tibet Centre Knappenberg, “Heinrich-Harrer-Museum”, the „Carinthian Music Academy“ and the „Geo Centre“. Under the motto “Dialogue of Cultures”, it became an international meeting place. Discover the cultural diversity of the world – in cosy Knappenberg!
