Every day is new, different and brings with it unique challenges – and we like it that way. It is this approach to life which helps the Kathrein family and the whole team at the Hotel Solaria meet all our guests' wishes with a smile.

Little wonder, then, that so many come back year after year to our hotel here in the beautiful Ischgl Paznaun region known for its family-friendly welcome.

Many visitors arrive as guests and leave as friends. After all, holidays are the best time of the year when you can finally relax and spend valuable time with those closest to you. Ankie and Markus Kathrein understand how precious these moments are and do everything possible to make your stay here an unforgettable experience.

passion & a big heart

traditional tyrolean hospitality passed down through the generations at the hotel solaria in Ischgl

The Hotel Solaria in the Ischgl Paznaun ski resort has been owned by the same family for several generations. Oswald Kathrein built the hotel in 1977. Since then it has developed a reputation as a place where guests are more than just room numbers and many become friends of the host family here at the Hotel Solaria. Indeed, Oswald's father, Julius Kathrein, was himself at the forefront of the movement to develop Ischgl into a tourism destination.

Today it is Ankie and Markus Kathrein who are the third generation to manage to hotel - a task they enjoy every single day.

The combination of Ankie's Dutch/Asian roots and Markus's Tyrolean heritage form a unique combination continuing the tradition established by his father and grandfather: to treat each guest in a friendly, courteous and attentive manner.

history of the hotel Solaria

great-grandfather's vision helped make
tYrol a world-famous skiing destination

The history of the Hotel Solaria in Ischgl started more than 100 years ago. Back then the village was very poor – little more than a remote mountain village. Benjamin Kathrein, the great-grandfather of today's owner, was convinced that tourism was the key to the region's development.

Together with his son Julius he founded the Gästehaus Fernblick in 1937. This was one of the first places to offer accommodation to visitors and therefore a milestone in the development of tourism in Ischgl. Today the Fernblick has become the Hotel Solaria.

The Hotel Solaria – founded in 1937 as the Gästehaus Fernblick – was one of the first skiing hotels in the whole region of Tyrol! 


enjoy a sustainable skiing holiday in the heart of the alps

Markus and Stefan Kathrein learned much from their father, Oswald, about the importance of nature. Their passion for natural materials can be seen in the dining room and wine room at the Hotel Solaria, which both feature intricately carved woodwork representing one of the valley's oldest and most precious traditions. 

This regional focus can also be found in the hotel kitchen, where our team of chefs uses ingredients sourced from the local producers to create delicious delicacies. Sustainability and local traditions are two of the passions the Kathrein family enjoy sharing with their guests.

Here at the Hotel Solaria environmental protection and sustainability are more than just empty slogans.

Since opening, our hotel has not used a single drop of heating oil. Instead, we use environmentally-friendly biomass to heat the building.
