Just an hour away from Salzburg in the alpine town of Saalbach-Hinterglemm lies Hotel Wiesergut. The lodgings are owned by Josef Sepp and Martina Kröll and have been in the Sepp family since 1350, with Joseph's great-grandmother opening a guesthouse on the plot of land two generations ago. Comprising 24 rooms, the 14th century family estate includes a traditional white four-storey building that has been transformed by local firm Gogl & Partners Architekten into 17 'manor suites', surrounded by a series of modern, low-lying structures with floor to ceiling windows that house seven garden suites. The interiors include warming tones of mushroom browns, set against wood and stone. Rooms are furnished with bespoke pieces such as hand-blown glass chandeliers by Cologne-based Isabel Hamm, and artworks by ceramicist Petra Lindenbauer and sculptor Andreas Reichlin. Food is by the Kröll family, featuring seasonal, regional produce and incorporating their tradition concept of farm-to-table dining.
