Welcome to the Country Hotel*** Groggerhof at the Zirbenland!

In former times, Obdach was the final stop for carters before they continued their trip crossing over the “Obdacher Sattel”. This created a special form of hospitality that is still maintained at the Groggerhof today. Our Styrian Country Inn offers an atmosphere where tradition and modern times join together, surrounded by the Biedermeier flair.

Due to the traditional and original construction of the hotel, all rooms have different sizes and are individually designed. The cosy pine paneled restaurant not only invite you to linger, also you can get to know the culinary offer of the hotel in a special way.

Obdach and the surrounding area offers you various leisure facilities in summer as well as in winter - from skiing, snowboarding and cross-country skiing to wonderful hikes (on a total of 330 km of hiking trails) to well-signposted mountain bike trails. On the way you will find numerous cosy mountain chalets.

The Red Bull Ring in Spielberg can be reached within 20 minutes by car.
