The rope bed, a construction you don’t see every day. Something very extraordinary, a bed that floats from the ceiling on hand-woven hemp ropes and lulks everyone into a wonderful sleep. A few centimetres above the ground, the unique bed creates an “extrepting atmosphere. ”On the first floor is the beautiful, open and spacious bathroom.Our rope bed is truly a jewel, where you will never get out of the amazement!So you rock into the world of dreams where perhaps childhood memories come back. If it gets too “stormy”, then the bed can of course also be attached.Our guests can really “hang out” in this bed!
The rose, the symbol of love, joy and youthful freshness. The rose has been known as the “Queen of Flowers” since ancient Greece. Roses have been cultivated as ornamental plants for more than 2,000 years.Rose oil obtained from the petals is an important raw material of the perfume industry. The rose water from the extraction of rose oil is used in the production of marzipan and gingerbread. The fruit of the rose is rosehip. This is used for our delicious fruit tea.The rose is also said to have a special effect on colds, intestinal diseases and bile ailments.A flower, a name, many meanings associated with culture, mythology, religion, symbolism, fairy tales, legends, songs, names, coats of arms and medicine. . .What better name can describe a room in a hotel that is characterised by tradition and Styrian romanticism than a “Rose Room”?
Romanticism means something sensual, adventurous, wonderful, fantastic, scary, detached from civilisation with complete devotion to nature. Romanticism as an epoch was characterized by romantic thinking and romantic poetry, e. g. criticism of reason, dissolving the separation between philosophy, literature and science, being close to nature and experiencing the unconscious.Romanticism is an epoch of cultural history that lasted from the end of the 18th century to well into the 19th century, and was expressed in particular in the fields of visual arts, literature and music.Romanticism means: The urge for infinity, the passionate-moved, the dark, the unrestrained and ruthless want to break all boundaries.Enjoy a “romantic” night in the canopy bed and let yourself be pampered by your partner, with a massage (please pre-order) or with us for breakfast!
The original “Lorenzener Höhle” has existed since the early Stone Age. Bone finds in the Ofenberg Cave prove the fact that “romantics” have been on the move in our forests for 4,000 years.On the way to the Styrian-romantic Pogusch, you will notice a chapel with a towering forested mountain range on the left. This is the beginning of a small steep path that leads directly to the wooded entrance of the Ofenberger Höhle.Good footwear, safe footwear and adequate lighting should be a matter of course if you venture to the cave and the ascent. Exploration tours are your own responsibility, and the rest period of the bats must be observed, which hibernate in the cave from October to the end of March (depending on the weather). A disturbance of this could mean the death of the animals.If you feel like crawling in a cave without walking far, then this room is just right!
Probably the oldest legend about Mürzhofen dates back almost 4,000 years. So old is believed to be the cult stone that was found near the village. It is a megalithic structure. The oldest clay fragments found in the area of the cultural complex date back to the late Neolithic Age (about 2,000 BC).
On the alluvial hill above the Turmwirt-Gasthof collectors found fragments of clay vessels from the Early and Late Bronze Age. Another important find is a man-made menhir located one kilometer away from the carved stone complex.
Today, it is assumed, partly on the basis of archaeological findings, that people had settled around Mürzhofen for millennia. Some finds could be dated to 1,700 BC. The traces in Mürzhofen are the oldest in the Mürztal, so it can be assumed that there was already a “sort of settlement” here in the Bronze Age.The places of worship found in the forests bear witness to the fact that rites had already been established at that time.
Today, the Kultstein is a popular hiking destination and can be visited all year round except in snow.
Our home town Sankt Lorenzen im Mürztal was first mentioned in documents in 860. The name comes from Laurentius, who is the patron saint of many professions involved in open fire: firemen, bakers, beer brewers, textile cleaners and cooks.As a deacon, Laurentius managed the assets of his church, so he is often called upon by professional groups such as archivists and librarians. In case of witchcraft, sciatica and skin ailments, Saint Laurentius is also called.In Christian iconography and heraldry, the saint, dressed in the Dalmatics of the deacon, is attached as an attribute the rust on which he was put to death. In coats of arms, as well as in ours, the rust is often the sole symbol for him.
We are happy to answer any more detailed questions and are happy to welcome our guests in the beautiful St. Lorenzen, where Dieter Mateschitz was born and raised.
Alpine life is traditionally in women’s hands. Men were employed in pre-industrial agriculture in the valley for forestry work and in the fields. Alpine farming was often entrusted to the farmer’s sister, the sister-in-law, colloquially “Schwoagarin” of the farmer. The sister-in-law had the highest responsibility on the alpine pasture as a dairyman. They had to be hardworking girls or women. With the first light of day, her work began, only to finish at nightfall. Nevertheless, this work was coveted by many, because the freedom they had up on the alpine pasture outdid the work.The modern dairy industry has little to do with this picture. The Styrian alpine farming has lost none of its beauty, however; the fragrance of herbs and flowers enchants anyone who will enjoy them. We are happy to tell our guests the most beautiful places and answer more in-depth questions.
If you want to be closely associated with the tradition and culture of the agricultural and alpine industry, you will feel particularly comfortable in the Schwoagerin room.
“Back then”, when the Roanwirt also included a large farm, you couldn’t overlook it or miss it: the grass-green 15er Steyr, who supported our grandparents in mowing and hay turning. A real gemstone that went off the production line in Upper Austria in the 1950s and already had what it takes to become a cultic object.
Today many classic car fans would lick their fingers after the 15 hp strong and 25 km/h fast Steyr 80, which has done us a lot of good service on the Roan. To this day, our tractor has remained almost a loyal member of the family, which is an important part of our history.
That’s why we put a memorial to our beloved 15er Steyr in the tractor room, so that he can continue to accompany the Hölzl family. And it is also intended to serve as a contemporary witness to our long history and to remind our guests that stability and sustainability are the values that hold us in every overnight stay in the tractor room.

A real treasure is hidden in the Waldheimat room. Not a material one, but a literary one: Because the sounding name is owed to the probably most famous writer of Styria. Peter Rosegger, born in Krieglach in the Mürztal valley, was a master of words and as deeply rooted in the region as we are today.
The forest farmer boy, as he is still lovingly called, knew how to pour the pictures of his life into stories and poems. The social-thinked Rosegger couldn’t resist some critical commentary, and although his life ended more than 100 years ago, some of his writings are more topical than ever. You can see for yourself in our room, which we have dedicated to Rosegger’s Waldheimat, and browse through interesting works and collections by the poet and thinker in moments of tranquility. Or get to know Rosegger’s real Waldheim in Krieglach personally.
The room of the same name is the perfect starting point to let all the impressions have a long lasting effect on you.
The Styrian hunter sees himself primarily as a hepherd of the wildlife and conservator of the natural habitat. Hunts are usually taken from a high seat, from which the hunter has a good view over his hunting territory.But also the extraction of food (meat) and trophies is one of the hunters' passions. The high-quality game meat from the region is also prepared for culinary delights at the Roanwirt. The trophies are often hung up at home by the proud hunters. Many have their own room, the so-called “Jagastüberl. ”Our friends of the hunt will feel particularly comfortable in this room, which also has a special high seat. . .
The Styrian Erzberg is the largest open-cast iron ore mining company in Central Europe. It is called the “Styrian bread loaf” for good reason. In the region, the past and the present are intertwined. The magnificent mountains around the Erzberg make the legend of its discovery come alive. During the visit of this region join our guests the Travel to times gone by and at the same time feel the pulse of modern times.A visit to the Erzberg is a unique experience; we are happy to assist you with the organisation of any excursion destinations.
We hope that our guests will meet the “Styrian Prince” with his whole personality! His services to our country are comprehensive:He renewed and modernized agriculture by founding model farms, he opened up mountain regions and had them surveyed, and founded the Montanuniversität Leoben. He commissioned his chamber painters to capture the Styrian landscape and scenes from the life of the Archduke in pictures, since photography was not yet known at that time.His solidarity with the people was expressed in close contacts with the people, his interest in the inhabitants of the country, their needs and abilities, and the promotion of the material and spiritual culture of Styria. All his initiatives and actions in Styria were undertaken by Johann exclusively as a private individual and not in any public function.
He wanted his attitude to be expressed externally and made the grey-green loden skirt of the Upper Styrian, which was worn mainly by the hunters, his garment, the Styrian skirt. From him emerged the Styrian suit.In this room our guests spend a night to be particularly close to our Styrian region

The shoemaker is a craftsman who manufactures and repairs shoes by hand. The term shoemakers is used as a synonym for shoemakers.On the official holiday, 25 October, the patron saint of shoemakers and tanners, Saint Crispin, is commemorated. The shoemaker’s tools needed to make the shoe have hardly changed for centuries.It was supplemented only by rational machinery; a pneumatic press, for example, makes it unnecessary to manually tap the sole with a shovel hammer or hammer.In the 17th century, the verb “schustern” also acquired the colloquial meaning “make a muck job”, especially in the form of shuffling and shuffling together. In the 18th century, the term “schustern” came into being, which means that you give something to someone secretly.Guests who want to establish a connection to real craftsmanship are particularly comfortable in the Schuster Room.
Our great Styrian poet Peter Rosegger says: “Everyone should stick to his own way of thinking and convictions, but he should also tolerate and respect those of the others. ”In times like these, when you are often overworked with work and hardly find time for relaxation and good, profound conversations, this unique room can bring you together again.The warmth and security that we can give each other is inexhaustible and valuable for harmony and well-being.Let’s take our loved ones in the arms and pull them together. Simply let your soul dangle together and feel each other with all your senses, you can definitely do that in this room!
The variety of dried grasses, herbs and flowers give the hay its incomparable fragrance. Until the invention of silo and bale storage, a well-filled hayloft was the prerequisite for the survival of livestock during the long, cold and snowy winter months.
Mostly the attic or part of the barn is used as a hayloft.Often cat mothers stay with their babies in the hayloft, as it is often the warmest and most comfortable place for farm cats in autumn/winter.
However, the hayloft is not only warm and cozy for cats. A blanket spread out and you have a romantic, well-smelling place to sleep.Who you spend the night with at the hayloft is usually a secret. . .Note: Guests suffering from hay fever or grass allergy are not recommended in this room. Everyone else will spend a pleasantly fragrant night!
The word “Somerfrische" refers both to the seasonal relocation from the city to the country and to the destination. In the Grimm Brothers' dictionary, the term is defined as “recovery stay of city dwellers in the countryside during summer time” or “Landlust of city dwellers in summer. ”The people indulged in the original life in the countryside in the mountains, enjoyed the typical dishes of the locals and often dressed in their costumes.Today, relocation for several months is usually no longer possible on this scale, but still or again, many people are moving out into the countryside, away from the cities, into the country for similar reasons as in the summer months. But it is not only the beautiful scenery, the water and the majestic peaks of the mountains that have always inspired us to enjoy the summer holiday.
