Hotel Eder, Hochkönig

Yodel-ay-ee-ooo – The mountains are calling, and Hotel Eder is, without doubt, answering. In the heart of charming Maria Alm, Hotel Eder has been part and parcel of this village for generations. Welcoming and full of heart, this alpine retreat is so much more than just a hotel. Adored by locals and guests alike, you really feel at home at Hotel Eder. From the kitchen’s traditional recipes to the 74 cozy guestrooms upstairs, you’ll never want to leave.


Nestled between colorful Maria Alm and the breathtaking mountain scenery of Hochkönig, Hotel Eder evokes a true sense of village charm. Taking up prime position on the dorfplatz, you’ll never miss a beat and a stay here is guaranteed to leave you feeling part of this magical alpine village. In a place where time seemingly stands still, delve into local traditions such as the autumnal Bauernherbstfest and the Advent Market. Outside of the village, get your blood pumping and breathe in the mountain air as you hike, bike and ski to your heart’s content. At just over an hour’s drive from Salzburg, you’ll be swapping city slicking for mountain climbing in an instant.

Your Room

Hotel Eder isn’t only found on the square – its 74 rooms are in fact spread across three locations: the hotel itself, the Apartments on the Pond and the Landhaus in the Garden. Whichever option you choose, you’ll get a real sense of the mountains with a design that flawlessly combines urban style with alpine tradition. For those who love to live the high life though, we love the gipfelstürmer rooms which offer fantastic balcony views across the rooftops of Maria Alm.

Why We Like It

Recognising that we all need to indulge in a little ‘me’ time every once in a while, Hotel Eder places huge emphasis on appreciating relaxation and escaping the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Step into a true oasis of calm, with neutral color schemes and moss draping the pine-clad walls. To truly unwind though, head to the wellness area. Featuring indoor and outdoor pools, three saunas and a variety of treatment rooms, soothe your aching muscles from the host of outdoor pursuits on offer here, and refuel, ready for the next adventure.
