A relaxing apartment hotel with stylistic contrasts and an authentic Pongau lifestyle

The apartments: spacious – a zesty combination of purism and Alpine coziness. The rooms: comfortably modern, with a cheeky reference to 90s country style. For energetic types, inquiring minds and lazy bones. With great views, lots of space, outstanding comforts and surprising small details.


The Grünholz lies high above the daily routine. High above Mühlbach – one step closer to the mountain heaven that is the Hochkönig – peaceful yet central. For individualists who love the sight of imposing mountain scenery every bit as much as we do. For guests who value the natural delights of the Pongau region – be that the apartment or room lifestyle, actively engaged in outdoor sports or experiencing adventures, relaxing in the SPA or savoring the culinary treats conjured up in our kitchen.

Outside: architecture that has grown across generations. Inside: clear and modern lines, contemporary Alpine lifestyle comforts and unadorned luxury. Spaces for innovation and tradition. Individual, family-style and family-run. Linear, yet highly emotional. At the Grünholz, clocks tick a little differently. And you have time. Time for yourself: to eat breakfast with your family or friends. Come a little closer to rediscovering your true self in the SPA. In our Aparthotel Grünholz. We are ready and there whenever you are.


Hannes Schwaiger with life companion Kathrin and family

One apartment. One family. With esprit, charm and dedication. With a deep affection for their Austrian and Bavarian roots. With broad perspectives, great views and a whole lot of heart.

“When we travel, we are always looking: for the ONE, very special holiday spot, where we can disappear and unwind, and where we would stay longer if we had the chance. And when we find such a place, we always realize: What makes our holiday so very special is the calm and hospitality of the people themselves.”

It is precisely because of this that we have remodeled our establishment into an apartment hotel with great sensitivity. We have consciously combined tried-and-true with future-forward, as well as the essence of Austria and Bavaria. After all: Kathrin, the life partner of Hannes, is a proud Munich native through and through. She brings a cosmopolitan, spirited Bavarian touch to the house and the family. Not only through their son Maximilian is the best of two cultures melded together. Likewise at the apartment hotel and in our restaurant kitchen, we never lose sight of our roots. Our responsibility to our heritage, our region, and for the benefit of our guests.

Clear, pure and so refreshing

Flowing from every tap and throughout our wellness facilities, our guests are able to enjoy fresh spring water. Pure. Clean. And lime-free. The drinking quality of mountain spring water quickly gives tired hikers a jumpstart. Wellness fans also benefit from the energy boost, since in the SPA they are able to relax in fresh water from our own spring. Naturally free of any contaminants and enriched with natural minerals.

Regular guests, in particular, truly appreciate and enjoy our spring, which supplies the entire apartment hotel with water and is gentle on the environment, too. And always drink an extra glass in the morning. Try it for yourself… also straight out of the tap.
