Check-in is available from 4:00 PM onwards. This allows ample time on the day of arrival to enjoy a short hike/bike ride or to explore the city of Lienz.

Depending on traffic, you can expect about a 10-minute taxi ride.

Can I Drop Off My Luggage Before Check-In?

We would love to be available 24 hours for our guests and watch over your valuables. However, our young children would not appreciate our constant absence. Therefore, lockers or a separate room with locking facilities are not available.


What Time is Check-Out?

Our regular check-out time is daily at 10:00 AM.

Fond of Express Check-Out?

We certainly are. When leaving the apartment, all you have to do is drop the key into the designated key box. We'll send you the instructions in advance.

Experience has taught us that, despite all the excitement for a holiday, unexpected things can always come up. To save you the hassle and cancellation costs, we recommend taking out travel insurance. This can be included directly at the time of booking.

Are the Apartments Suitable for Children?

Yes, of course, why not? We have children ourselves and advocate for a holiday with children, not from them. We believe that with a good household insurance policy, a worry-free vacation with little ones is possible. However, it's important to note that the apartments are equipped with ONE box-spring bed.

Yes, we offer free Wi-Fi access in all our apartments. However, we would also like to point out that it can be a great opportunity to take a digital break now and then. Disconnect to reconnect.

Do the Apartments Offer Barrier-Free Access?

While we would love to offer barrier-free apartments, due to the construction year of our residential building in 1919, it is not possible to install an elevator shaft or specific room sizes. Therefore, all apartments are only accessible via stairs.

  • Turn off lights when not needed: Just make sure all lights and devices are off before leaving the apartment. This way, we save energy together!
  • Easy waste separation: We have provided separate containers for paper, glass, plastic, and organic waste. This makes sorting easy and supports recycling.
  • Save water without compromise: Be mindful of your water usage while showering and brushing your teeth.
  • Leave the car behind: Explore the area using public transport, bicycle, or on foot.

We are really happy when you support us in these efforts. If you have any ideas or questions about how we can become even more environmentally friendly, please let us know. Together, we can make a difference and ensure that our wonderful environment is preserved for future generations.
