Like a grand old lady with an abundance of charme and style the Krone occupies her rightful place on the village square in Hittisau. Serene in her maturity, yet sprightly and curious, she is and always has been open to all things new and innovative since her inception in 1838.
This dignified dame insists on quality and appreciates the good things in life. She knows how to make visitors welcome from arrival to departure, how to inspire and indulge those under her roof.
She provides the splendid setting but the overall endeavour is shared among family, employees, friends, artisans and suppliers: a microcosm of people who are committed to their daily tasks and challenges, who love the place where they work, who also appreciate the good life and who keep the crown young, lively and on her toes.
So come on in, sit down, unwind. You have arrived.
Life at the Krone.
Step over the threshold. This is about much more than physical presence. Having properly arrived is a sensory experience: busy thoughts still while your senses awaken to revel in the calm contentment that can be found in the here and now.
We employ a whole bag of tricks and tools to ensure this, such as the beautiful furniture in your room, crafted by our Bregenzerwälder artisans, a warm invitation in wood to kick back and chill.
Food from the Krone kitchen, prepared from regional organic produce, guaranteed to replenish body and soul and served with a smile.
The local neighbourhood, tempting you into leisurely walks or challenging hikes, cultural experiences, cross-country skiing, architecture-themed walks and spontaneous encounters.
Our Chimney Room, for a reviving cuppa. Watch the open fire, listen to the logs crackling, revel in solitude or have a chat with fellow guests.
Our well-stocked house library. Browse among a multitude of absorbing books, magazines and newspapers such as Der Falter, Der Standard, Presse, Neue Zürcher Zeitung, Frankfurter Allgemeine and selected journals such as brandeins, Der Spiegel, Original, Falstaff, A la carte, Vogue, Hochparterre, Modulor, Art Aurea, to name just a few.
Us, the Krone family, taking good care of you and presenting you with the gift of time.
Our wine cellar, home to more then 6000 bottles of liquid joy.
Our big and beautiful sauna in the garden, perfect setting for an impromptu detox session that will leave you refreshed and rejuvenated.
A tennis table room where you can challenge friends, family or fellow guests to a quick fire round or two.
The night sky in Hittisau. Look up to the stars and feel your soul expand with the sheer vastness of the twinkling canopy above.
And as luck has it, you’ll probably find the most likeable guests in all of Middle Earth at the Krone, plus a fine collection of board games and a few other treats.
We’ll keep those few more a secret for now but do expect to be pleasantly surprised…
