Hotel Edelweiss in St. Jakob in the Defereggen valley.

Gasthof Edelweiß

Life under the stars, be a guest with friends

What we can't help for: St. Jakob located in a sunny bay in the already sun-drenched Defereggental, truly deserves the title "pearl of Tyrol and the Alps". Confirmed from our guests, who come to during spring, summer, autumn and winter, that are seeking after rest, recuperation and renewal. No wonder, we have such a high number of returning guests, people and friends who have appreciated and loved the natural splendor of the Defereggen valley since their first visit. What has been given to us: a wonderful rich nature, and the radiant beauty of the East Tyrolean Alps.

What we strive for daily: Preserving all the magnificent structures that have existed for ages and share them with our guests ... with you. St. Jakob in winter: sunny days in the sparkling snow (high snow-sureness) in crystal-clear air, with everything you could wish for: skiing, cross-country skiing, après-ski, a picturesque village - in a word, glittering days of happiness.

St. Jakob in the spring, summer and autumn: you breathe air that is fully loaded with scents of the meadows, the woods and hay. Hiking, biking, living traditions, climbing, well-being - could there be anything better?

We, the Unterkircher family, are pleased to welcome you to our hotel and to let you take part in an unique experience of East Tyrol. Possibly with a guided ski tour? And: we see ourselves as a family hotel and especially kids will receive a warm welcome.

We look forward to seeing you at the Hotel Edelweiss in Defereggental!
