The Falkenstein – Your wellness & Sports hotel in Kaprun

Sport or wellness holiday? In The Falkenstein there is no either or, but both. Our special 4-star hotel combines a mix of Austrian tradition and modern lifestyle. After an exciting day in the snow, a strenuous mountain bike tour or an adventurous tandem paragliding flight with the landlord, you can relax in the unique and new flying spa wellness area with saunas, lots of special relaxing areas and pool or attend a yoga session.

What is a flying hotel?

The Falkenstein is your nest, your home base in the Austrian Alps. With us, everything revolves around flying and gives you a feeling of being on cloud 9. The perfect and quiet location on the outskirts of Kaprun is just a stone’s throw away from the region’s top highlights. The Flying Spa wellness and fitness area, the Freiflugbar, Studios called Cloud 9 and the Federspiel and Vogelnest restaurants are just a few of the new highlights! Would like to know more?

From up there you have an unrestricted view of the Salzburger Land. The tingling in the stomach. The rush of speed and the big grin on your face. Or would you rather just hang out? That’s our falcon feeling.
