The History of your Hosts

Friendly and personal, with an extra special touch

Around 20 years ago, Kate and Hannes Winkler took over the hotel from the family estate and completely re-designed it. The property, originally an old farm, opened initially as the “Gasthof Alpenland.

Over the years, the desire to provide guests with a unique holiday experience that caters to their every need has grown: the idea of combining beautiful self-catering accommodation with the comforts of a 4 star hotel. The Landhof was born

Tailor-made for your every need

Nowadays, daughter Isabelle runs the hotel together with her mother, filling The Landhof with their open nature and charming Tyrolean style. Bojay, the Australian Shepherd, also belongs to the family. Bojay loves new guests and boy does he love to be stroked! Honest and authentic: those who stay here can expect a friendly, family atmosphere, where you will always find an open ear coupled with great advice on the region.  

Both hostesses continually strive to make their guests’ stay unforgettable, tackling every request with delight and heaps of enthusiasm.

“The Landhof defies categorisation. But we don´t need a label – our guests can simply enjoy their holidays to the fullest here, we take care of the rest!

Host, Kate Winkler

Urlaub beim Bergdoktor

Der Bergdoktor öffnete seine Praxis in Ellmau im Jahr 1992 zum ersten Mal: Gerhard Lippert verkörperte fünf Jahre lang den leidenschaftlich engagierten Dr. Martin Gruber. Seit 2008 hat der Österreicher Hans Sigl mit dem Bergdoktor eine seiner Lebensrollen gefunden; bislang flimmerten 12 Staffeln der ungebrochen erfolgreichen Serie über die Bildschirme. Isabelle Winkler war drei Jahre lang Teil des Teams.

Dear friends of the landhof,

we will be very pleased to welcome you back to our beautiful LANDHOF. The well-being and health of our guests as well as our staff are very important to us. Therefore, we have implemented the following changes for your benefit:

Relaxed cancellation conditions

At the Austrian borders, changes and conditions can occur at very short notice. For this instance we have also changed the cancellation conditions in your favour:

  • Instead of the usual 3 months, you can now cancel for free up to 1 month before arrival.
  • In the event of acute border closures cancellations can of course also be made free of charge at short notice.

Weekly COVID-19 tests by staff members

To ensure that you can enjoy your stay free of concerns and to the fullest, we test our staff every week. Tyrolean hospitality should remain as it is; warm and personal.

Current information and case numbers can be found here.


No matter what your request, we are at your disposal. Simply send us an email to and we will respond as soon as possible.

It is nice that, despite all the circumstances, our hotel will be filled with life again in the near future. As always, it is our guests who really make the LANDHOF what it is.

Isabelle and the entire LANDHOF team wish you all the best and we hope to see you soon!

Isabelle and the entire LANDHOF team wish you only the best and a hearty "stay healty" from Ellmau.
