Mountain Retreat

MoaAlm Mountain Retreat, the remote home for your Austrian holiday, stands proud at 1800m within the Hohe Tauern National Park. Situated just 3km above the small community of Kals am Grossglockner, a farming community with a strong mountaineering tradition. Nestled within the Alps of East Tirol, MoaAlm is a stylishly renovated guest house for a maximum of 14 guests. You can enjoy the astonishing mountain views from our sunny south facing terrace, after an active day in the outdoors.  We have a wood burning hot tub to relax in and savour even more of the Alpine fresh air, before enjoying dinner at our communal oak dining table.

Please make yourself at home: Relax, enjoy a drink at the bar, curl up on the sofa with a book, enjoy a meal with your new friends and immerse yourself in beauty of MoaAlm Mountain Retreat.

We have 6 guest rooms. All are thoughtfully decorated and very spacious. The rooms have ensuite bathrooms and stunning views. South facing rooms have balconies and views of the surrounding mountains. All rooms can be made up with a double or two single beds. Two of our bedrooms can also be available as triple rooms, which are ideal for solo travellers.

The in-house yoga studio has a large panoramic window with gorgeous views of the mountains. Start the day with a morning yoga session with our in house yoga teacher or maybe join a relaxing afternoon restorative class. The morning sunrise fills the room with energy and the late afternoon sunset turns the mountains a beautiful shade of pink. We love this room, and we hope you'll enjoy it as much as we do!

The growing season is very short up here at MoaAlm as we are at 1800m, but we manage to grow a bountiful garden of fresh herbs, chard and lettuce. We have lots of fresh mint in the summer to supplement our tea obsession. We cook with organic and locally-sourced food as much as possible. Likewise, we try to get all our other supplies from nearby, independent businesses in the village of Kals. We are committed to constantly looking at ways to address our carbon footprint and we are a plant based business.

Water Supply

We have our own water supply that comes to us directly from a natural spring from the mountain side. This means that we don’t have to worry about transporting water up to MoaAlm through a pump system. It tastes incredible as it comes directly from Grossglockner Glacier and is filtered by nature! Our guests often say it’s the purest water they ever tasted.

Waste Management

We are lucky that there's a fantastic recycling service provided by our local community. At MoaAlm we make the most of this service to reduce the amount of landfill that we produce. We limit our use of single-use plastics on a day-to-day basis, using glass jars and buying ingredients and natural cleaning products in bulk. Upstairs in the guest living area we provide a mini recycling station, and we have this in every main area of the house to streamline the recycling. We have a large composting system for food waste, but in general not much food goes to waste around here… it’s too tasty!
