5-Star Hideaway (SLH Member)
A 5 star hideaway with recreational backround especially with the pure and fresh air. First plan in 1912 was to open a Pulmonary Sanatorium. Teresa and Stefan have taken the plan years ago of this project and now in 2020 is been realised.
History & Story
The origins of FORESTIS go back to the year 1912. Doctors were commissioned to carry out various environmental studies at this location. The outstanding conditions here prompted the establishing of a tuberculosis sanatorium, built by architect Otto Wagner in accordance with the doctors’ ideals. Today, FORESTIS is still building on these results.
Many decades later, Alois Hinteregger discovered the old wooden building. The sunny location in the midst of dense woodland and the view of the Dolomites immediately entranced him.
From march 2019 until July 2020, historic building has been renovated and the Spa area and three towers have been build completely new. Architect Armin Sader (Assaggio)
Date added extensions
Between march 2019 and July 2020.
