JUFA Hotel Stift Gurk***

Relaxation and seminar facilities at the idyllic monastery in Carinthia

The new JUFA Hotel Stift Gurk*** opened in June 2018 and offers a fantastic place for nature lovers, families and pilgrims to spend a really special holiday. Alpine meadows stretching as far as the eye can see, densely forested mountainsides and the cheerful babbling sounds of the River Gurk can be enjoyed in the area around the market town of Gurk which is at the heart of the unspoilt Gurk Valley. It is no surprise that it is such a popular destination for so many pilgrims! The new JUFA Hotel in Carinthia is situated in historic surroundings so our guests can experience a truly unique atmosphere. The hotel is located in the historic wing of the chapter house and the priory building that are connected to Gurk Cathedral and provides a truly unique setting for every occasion whether you are on holiday with all your family, on a choir tour, taking part in a special conference or on a pilgrimage.

If you are looking for idyllic natural surroundings, want to satisfy your wanderlust and are interested in local history, then you have come to just the right place! The JUFA Hotel Stift Gurk*** is full of historic charm and is a perfect place to spend a quiet and relaxing holiday. The hotel’s location is ideal for discovering the exciting culture and history of the region, for example, you can access the famous Gurk Cathedral directly from the hotel where you can visit the tomb and treasure vault of the Blessed Emma of Gurk.

The region is well-known for its herbs and you will have plenty of opportunities to discover these botanical delights right at the hotel where they feature prominently on the agenda every day. For example, you can choose to try out a herbal pillow for a relaxing night’s sleep, or perhaps discover the therapeutic benefits of a herbal infusion at the tea bar.

There are so many regional culinary delights to enjoy. Pilgrims to the region love to partake in a drink of Gurktal Alpine Herb schnapps and to fortify themselves with healthy and delicious food from the monastic kitchen. You might also have the chance to taste the delights on offer at the popular Gurktal Ham Festival! The cathedral gift shop offers a range of delightful gifts to take home for family and friends.

There are also a range of leisure activities to enjoy such as the open air swimming pool in Gurk and the local history museum in Weitensfeld. There are many other sites of interest to explore that are located slightly further afield. For example, you can visit the small town of Strassburg, which is surrounded by 16 churches, Lake Kraiger, or maybe explore loftier heights in the Hochrindl mountains, a region that also has plenty to offer fans of winter sports.

The best attractions in the local area

Strassburg Castle

The former seat of the bishops of Gurk is found in an idyllic location on a hilltop against the magnificent backdrop of the Gurktal Alps. The exhibition entitled ‘Strassburg Royal Residence and Diocesan Town’ shows the origins of Gurk Cathedral, the diocese of Gurk and the historical development of the town of Strassburg.

The castle and museum are open from May to September and you can enter free of charge if you have a Kärnten Card.

Lake Kraiger

This beautiful lake lies at the foot of the Kulm Mountain at 596 metres above sea level. The shores of this beauty spot have not been spoiled by any development whatsoever so it is an ideal spot for relaxing, bathing and fishing. You can find a perfect place to relax in the alpine meadows and enjoy the cool shade provided by the pine and ash trees. The lake is a maximum of 10 metres deep and the temperature of the water during the summer months is very refreshing.

Weitensfeld Local History Museum

On display in the museum are many pictures of the Kanzelreiten horseback race showing the riders wearing colourful folk costumes from special jubilee years. Visitors can also view important historical records and exhibits. The Weitensfeld Museum brings Carinthia’s cultural heritage to life.

The museum is open all day over Whitsun. Donations are gratefully received.

Gurktal Alps

The Gurktal Alps are an ideal location for nature lovers to visit both during the summer and the winter. The Dorferecken reaches 1,726 metres above sea level and is the highest peak in the neighbouring Mödring mountain range. The Wirmitzer mountains are also a great place to enjoy shorter hikes.

Hirt Brewery

The brewery is very proud of its heritage which dates back to around the year 1270. The privately-run Hirt Brewery is also passionate about passing knowledge down the generations and you can get some fascinating insights into the art of brewing at the brewery’s very own Beer Academy. It is also possible to train to become a beer sommelier here.

The Blessed Emma Pilgrimage Trail

The tomb of the Blessed Emma in Gurk has been a pilgrimage destination for centuries. Emma is a saint who is venerated in Carinthia and Slovenia and is still considered to be a guide and role model for many people.

Pilgrims wishing to follow in the footsteps of the Blessed Emma can embark on an 800 km pilgrimage, or travel alone or in groups on a spiritual and physical journey along the trail to Gurk. There are 8 trails that can be followed that will take you to Gurk.

The Friesach Castle Construction Experience

The Friesach Castle Construction Experience invites its visitors to discover a fascinating historical experiment at a replica medieval construction site. How was it possible for people in former times to construct such magnificent architectural structures using what by our modern standards were such primitive means and with such limited knowledge? You can gain some fascinating insights into the art of medieval construction from April to October. Sturdy footwear is recommended.
