Erich Falkensteiner's birthplace, the former Falkensteiner Lido family resort, is embarking on an extensive upgrade and adaptation worth 20 million euros.
The family house in Ehrenburg in South Tyrol, where the brothers Erich and Andreas Falkensteiner spent their childhood, will receive a complete redesign, adaptation and significant expansion this year. With entertainment areas that include a wide variety of attractions, the innovative interior and exterior design of the Falkensteiner Lido will make it a unique family hotel in Europe and part of the Falkensteiner Premium Collection as a four-star hotel.
Where it all started back in 1957
"I was born in this house almost 63 years ago. My brother and I spent our childhood in a nine-bed boarding house and our youth in a later expanded hotel. We both grew up with guests and learned from a young age hospitality. Our "Welcome Home" takes on another dimension. With love and passion we want to create something big, Falkensteiner Lido as a unique family resort in Europe, and in addition we want to preserve the soul and history of this house, where it all began. It's a big challenge”Said Erich Falkensteiner, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Falkensteiner.
A big attraction will be the Sky Adventure Park with sports facilities on the interactive hotel roof. On it will be Valo Jump - an interactive world of trampolines, a football field, a Bobby Car trail, a year-round ski trail with an elevator, an ice rink, a large sky swing, a running track and much more. There is also a concierge for entertainment that will create individually tailored adventures and programs for guests.
The heart of the family resort is the extended natural lake and water world. The largest indoor water slide in Italy, at 120 meters, will be a new adrenaline attraction, and the Acquapura SPA & Water World with a family water slide will also have a large infinity pool and a sandy beach.
The hotel will also get 36 new luxury designer family rooms with a “Falky Nest” - each with a separate area for parents and children, while the existing rooms and restaurant will also be redesigned. Ecology and sustainability will come first, so the emphasis is on local seasonal products. Guests will have the opportunity to pick vegetables in the hotel’s garden and even grow them if they wish. Also, parents will be at the service of Falkensteiner Deluxe Kindergarten, which will be open six days a week.
