Body – mind – soul: rediscover your inner self at Bio- & Seminar Hotel Pointner
We have had our family business since 1973 and offer holidaymakers as well as seminar guests an eco-conscious stay (since 2017, stays at our hotel have been climate-neutral). Our vegetarian whole-food cuisine plays a central role. Needless to say, the foods we use are sourced from organic-certified producers (subject to regular inspections by Austria Bio Garantie).
We look forward to seeing you here!
