alpine living in Tyrol
A home from
home in Heaven
Der Engel is your somewhat different home from home in the heart of the Austrian Alps. Located in the idyllic Tannheim Valley, somewhere between Heaven and Earth, we welcome guests in search of a place to escape the stress of daily life and get away from it all for a few precious moments. Visitors can look forward to a warm welcome and a unique atmosphere embodying the spirituality which makes our hotel in Grän a place where guests keep coming back year after year. Curious? Come and find out for yourself. We look forward to welcoming you.
Earth and in between?
Us & you.
in the Austrian Tyrol
Our Organic Spa is the heart and soul of Der Engel. The moment you enter you will feel transported to a new world – a place somewhere between Heaven and Earth where world outside seems a million miles away. Open out your arms, close your eyes, take a deep breath and simply let yourself fall. Float on the water's surface, lie down on the recliners. Let what seems like a thousand hands pamper you. And just before you get ready to re-enter the real world, take a few more seconds for yourself to simply enjoy the moment. Heavenly!

Activities on offer here include hiking, mountain biking, climbing, yoga and many more. Ready to start exploring? Let's go!

Hotel of Angels
The name of our hotel, Der Engel, translates simlpy as "The Angel". Here in the village of Grän in the heart of the Tannheim Valley guests can look forward to an angelic holiday experience somewhere between Heaven and Earth. Our hotel is a place where we are proud of our roots yet keen to embrace the future. A place of traditional wood-panelled rooms with modern elements. A place where sustainability is not just a word but a way of life. A place where you can connect with the Alps, relax in our Organic Spa and enjoy culinary temptations from around the world in our restaurant. In short, a place like no other.
Outside, the nature of the Austrian Alps awaits. Hiking, biking, climbing or simply relaxing – there are many ways to experience othe Tannheim Valley. Whichever you choose, don't forget to stop every now and then to raise your eyes to the sky and enjoy the landscape here in our little piece of paradise somewhere between Heaven and Earth.
