Summer vacation at our family hotel in Upper Austria

Have a great time hiking, horse riding, swimming, golfing, and with all around outdoor fun

The birds are chirping happily to the sounds of the rushing mountain stream. You take a deep breath and smell the freshly mown grass, feel the warming sunbeams on your skin. Children’s laughter and the rhythmic clanking of horse hooves get to your ears. It is your perfect summer vacation with your family and kids at Gut Enghagen, in the Upper Austrian Pyhrn-Priel region.

Solar heated outdoor pool with authentic spring water

Whether you prefer your morning dive or a cooling dip in the evening: in our pool, you can swim from May to September in very pure and—if necessary—heated spring water! For our youngest guests, there is a separate children’s pool. After splashing around, feel free to relax and sunbath on one of our numerous sun loungers or on a towl on our well-kept lawn.

Horse riding

“When you are on a great horse, you have the best seat you will ever have”, said Winston Churchill once. This applies to our four-hoofed friends at Gut Enghagen as well! In our stable, we will find the proper companion for you, whether you are a beginner wanting to learn to ride, an advanced wanting to explore the surroundings or take hikes, or someone wanting to take pedagogical riding.
