In the future, the Falkensteiner Hotel in Bad Leonfelden wants to work extensively to promote the Bohemian Forest tourism region as a whole. The start is a cooperation with the Czech holiday resort Lipno. From September onwards, an overnight stay in the four-star hotel includes entry to the treetop walk in Lipno.
The Bohemian Forest tourist region, at the intersection of Germany, Austria and the Czech Republic, is one of the most fascinating large forest areas in Central Europe. The region is considered an insider tip for nature lovers and those seeking relaxation, because the vast landscape has countless places of power like no other. Moss-covered granite formations in the region’s vast forests, picturesque riverbeds and breathtaking viewpoints capture the energy of nature and were popular rite sites even in Celtic times. In the middle of this mystical area lies the Falkensteiner Mühlviertel, which has been welcoming its guests with a new all-inclusive concept since April after extensive renovation. As reported, the focus here is on regional products that the hotel sources from the numerous producers in the area. You literally have breakfast with a view of the pasture of the dairy cows from which the yoghurt and cheese come.
But the regionality of the products and suppliers is not the only focus of the hotel’s concept. The program also included the promotion of the entire holiday region around the Bohemian Forest. The starting signal for a cross-border tourism partnership is a cooperation with the Czech holiday resort of Lipno, around 25 kilometers away, which is considered a paradise for active holidaymakers. In addition to the various hiking and cycling trails, the Lipno reservoir, a high ropes course and a bobsleigh track, the treetop path in particular inspires numerous visitors here every year.
This 600 meter long, barrier-free high-altitude trail ends at a nine-edged observation tower and offers an impressive view of the region. As a result of the new cooperation, entry to the treetop path in Lipno is included with an overnight stay in the Falkensteiner Mühlviertel from September. “Our collaboration with the holiday resort Lipno is the start of a holistic promotion of the Bohemian Forest tourism region. In the future, we would like to give our guests the opportunity to experience this fascinating region and enjoy a limitless holiday experience,” says Falkensteiner manager Markus Röder. “The region around Lipno offers a great range of activities for young and old. Cross-border partnerships are particularly important in tourism in order to sustainably strengthen the entire region and make it even more attractive for guests. We look forward to continuing our cooperation with the Falkensteiner in the future,” adds Matìj Kratochvíl, CEO of Lipno Resort. Further joint projects are already being planned.
