Posthotel 5.0: 20 million euros’ worth of renovations, interior design and innovation

After a brief hiatus, the doors of the Posthotel Achenkirch on Lake Achensee have once again reopened. The reason for the closure was to carry out modifications, renovations and new building work – and the results are quite impressive! See for yourself: we proudly present the new Posthotel 5.0.

All change for the Posthotel Achenkirch

With investments totalling 20 million euros, Tyrol’s 5-star adults-only hotel has been rather busy of late. Wherever you look, you’ll discover something new – embark on a journey of discovery!

The hotel’s 100-year anniversary was part of the inspiration for many changes. The Posthotel has made a name for itself, is well-established and is hard to beat when it comes to all things wellbeing-related – so despite everything, there was no time to stand still. Over the decades, the hotel has continued to evolve and reinvent itself, meaning that the 5th major reopening will be all the talk in 2019. We are proud to present the Posthotel 5.0, which was, is and always will be a truly historical and special place:

  1. It all started off as a post office, where in addition to sending post it was also a place for people and horses to stop for a rest.
  2. It then became the post guest house with elegant guest rooms and a hall for feasts and celebrations.
  3. Upon changing its name to Posthotel Achenkirch, the foundations were laid for a wellness resort in which the Posthotel remains top of its class to this day.
  4. Even more peace and relaxation. Its changeover to an adults-only hotel placed even greater focus on the wellbeing of guests aged from 14.
  5. 100 years of the Posthotel and a spectacular reopening of the main building, where it all once began. 

Nowadays, virtually everything has changed – the Posthotel Achenkirch is newer and even more beautiful than ever before. “By renovating our entire wellness haven, we have brought the hotel into a modern era,” says hotel owner Karl Reiter. From the gym and hotel rooms, to the spa area and spacious restaurant, everything has been given a makeover!

Spectacular and legendary – the new dimensions of Tyrol’s adults-only hotel

  • the TENZO health restaurant using TCM expertise
