The charming palace had already been built by the late Gothic period, as a monastery in the heart of the Venosta Valley.
The knight Reinprecht von Hendl rebuilt the previous three-floor building into his residence in Glorenza in 1562. Over the subsequent centuries, the “Hohe Haus” was rebuilt several times. It opened as Hotel Krone for the first time in around 1880. Since then, the building has enchanted its guests with its interiors shaped by history and its countless architectural charms.
A stylish structure, today’s hotel forms, together with the Hotel Gruener Baum, part of a larger ensemble of buildings located around the historic city centre of Glorenza. In order not to lose the medieval charm of the building, additions embody a straight-forward, plain architectural style. The greatest challenge lay in integrating modern, contemporary indoor life into the existing walls.
