The new attitude to life

VAcation in the garden paradise


Throughout my life as a gardener, it has been and still is my mission to give people back a piece of paradise. Now we have created a place where exactly that happens: the "Kittenberger Chalets am Gartensee".
Reinhard Kittenberger

How does silence sound? How bright can stars shine, how sweet do berries taste? What does sun-warmed rock feel like? And: Does the scent of lavender really calm you down?
The Kittenberger Chalets at Gartensee have the answer.


You want it too: come down, breathe a sigh of relief, get away from all. Satisfy a deep longing for simplicity and tranquility, for childhood experiences and earthy touches. Feel nature around you and within you. Preferably for a few days.

The Kittenberger Chalets at Gartensee in Schiltern near Langenlois in Lower Austria make just that possible. A unique vacation experience in the garden, a power filling station that wants to give its guests back a piece of paradise.

High above the Kamptal, on a hill with a breathtaking 360-degree panoramic view, our team have created a delightful chalet village. A lively, colorful, splashing, blooming, fragrant oasis of tranquility for all who want to combine living in the garden with pleasurable chalet comfort.

The life-giving heart of the paradisiacal complex is a spacious crystal-clear garden lake, all chalets have private lake access. Around this enchanting body of water, themed gardens nestle in fantastic variety with a total of 20 chalets.

Welcome to a special wourld!

Arrive, come in, come home

You have arrived and are entering a special world. Forget your car for the next few days of your vacation. A chalet-mobile will take you along the lake. You glide past lush gardens, ancient fruit trees and inviting houses. Then: your chalet! Enter the garden. Your very own private garden for the days ahead! Now, a cool drink on the deck chair. Watching the water sparkle. Barbecue. Chilling. Snacking. Harvesting. And somewhere deep inside, you feel like this is not only an arrival, but also coming home to a piece of paradise.

All day long

Bon appétit!




Where top wines are created, good taste blooms on all lines.
Whether you stay in the chalet or set out on culinary excursions: Pleasure awaits you.

Too refreshing at the garden lake? Too cozy in the chalet? Too relaxed for excursions? If you don't come to enjoy, then enjoyment will come to you! For example, in the form of a multi-course menu, delivered to your chalet. Just like starting the day with the fresh breakfast basket or the package for self-grillers with all ingredients.

Fancy a good bottle of wine? Would you like a small snack? Or would you like to cook together in your chalet? In our shop in the main building you will find many regional specialties waiting for your tasting.

And only a few steps away you will find our garden restaurant Glas.Haus, where grilled dishes, juicy burgers and different currys are served as well as breakfast plates, snacks, iced coffee and fine pastries. Of course, the surrounding area also has tempting things to offer: Tastings at top Kamptaler vintners, wine taverns with classic delicacies and new creations, rustic inns and also award-winning restaurants. In any case, we wish you "Bon appétit!"



For a good start in your day


Whether you are an early riser or a late riser - we ensure a good start to the day!
Our breakfast basket is delivered directly to your chalet and is filled with delicacies from the region: homemade jam, crispy pastries, organic butter, organic ham and cheese, fresh vegetables and orange juice. And if you like more, whether festive with champagne and salmon or healthy with yogurt and fruits - just ask for our additional offer.

Pleasurable end of your day


Would you like to not leave your chalet after a relaxing day and still enjoy regional dishes? Our freshly cooked dinner with local specialties can be booked by the day. Choose whether you want to dine on just a main course, a 2-course or 3-course menu. Stay cozy in your bathrobe and watch the sunset on your terrace - we serve everything directly to your chalet. In case of allergies or intolerances, please just let us know.


Enjoy the evening together

Barbecue or Raclette

Enjoying the summer evenings at the garden lake, nothing tastes better than grilled food! With our grill package with different kinds of meat, fresh vegetables, crispy salad, regional bread and homemade sauces you will become a grill master!

And on early winter nights? Choose our raclette package and relax at a  cozy evening in your chalet. Accompanied by a good glass of wine of the region from our store.




Discover the surroundings



There are many good reasons not to leave your chalet and enjoy all the amenities of the resort. However, the surroundings also offer tempting things.

It sounds unbelievable, but it's true: Starting from the Kittenberger Chalets, you can reach around 100 excursion destinations within an hour's drive! From the brewery a few steps away, to nearby Langenlois with its top vintners, to the treasures of the Waldviertel and the highlights of the Wachau. And after the tour a refreshing round in the natural swimming lake and perhaps a barbecue evening on the chalet terrace.
