The holiday region Bad Kleinkirchheim and we – the family hotel Kärntnerhof – specialize in welcoming families and create an atmosphere where guests of all ages will feel at home. 

The variety of excursion destinations, sports and nature adventures ensure that every member of the family will find plenty to see and do. Set in Austria‘s most southern province, the Kärntnerhof is fully geared to the needs of young and old holidaymakers.

Family Austria

Your specialist for families

The Kärntnerhof has been a member of the Family Austria group for some years now and is rated with 5 Freddies. This quality promise that ensures your holidays with us in Austria will become one of your best family breaks ever.

Their philosophy fits perfectly: Family holidays are holidays “with” the family – not “from” the family. Children’s activity programs: yes. Entertainment around the clock: no. Delicious food that is also healthy. Lots of activities and fun! And if guests would like to keep to themselves occasionally, nobody will take it the wrong way!
