Sattleggers Alpenhof at the Emberger Alm

Close to the stars! In the passage of time

From mountain dairy to ***alpine inn with all the comforts – in just 3 generations. Natural warmth and sincere hospitality add to the charm and uniqueness of Sattleggers Alpenhof.


Anyone who happens to believe that modern comforts are incompatible with traditional warmth and coziness, will quickly learn that’s not at all the case here at the Emberger Alm. Far removed from any hint of those clichéd depictions of Alpine life, you will experience a very personal brand of hospitality that quickly turns congenial acquaintances into good friends. And so that your holidays are absolutely perfect: your “four-legged friend” will also be our “four-legged friend”.


And everything is possible...

At 1800 m above sea level, for avid astronomers the stars almost appear as if you could reach out and touch them. Whether beginner or professional stargazer, everyone is utterly amazed by the indescribable sight of the Milky Way.


Everyone who feels they have a “higher calling” can’t wait to explore and photograph the clear-as-crystal starry night-sky with the help of our Holiday Observatory along with professional 12“ Meade LX200 and 17.5" Newton telescopes. In this light-pollution-free setting, you are also guaranteed to enjoy the best possible views through your own telescope (safe locations to set up your equipment, secure daytime storage).

There is no better way to experience the unique highlights of the alpine pastures that surround us, than by taking part in a botanical hike through the Emberger Alm led by an expert.
If you are looking to inject an additional jolt of adrenaline into your vacation, various opportunities for outdoor sports allow you to do just that. For example, how about hang gliding or paragliding, solo or tandem, high above Drautal?

Allergy-Free Holidays

Finally able to take a deep breath again and escape your allergies!

One of the simplest forms of allergy relief is to take a timeout from allergens.
