Othmar Schneider & Kristiania history
In 1952 Othmar Schneider brought a gold medal for the slalom and a silver medal for Alpine skiing back with him to Lech from the Olympic Winter Games in Oslo. He went on to pursue an international career as a ski school director in Boyne-Mountain, Michigan, and at Portillio in Chile. On his return to Lech, he built the Kristiania up into one of the leading addresses in Lech.
At the Kristiania, our foremost aim has been to offer a comfortable home to winter guests accompanied by individuality, lifestyle and privacy. Personal style and unique charm are the distinctive attributes of Kristiania. Our philosophy of the art of living naturally focuses on the guest. Austrian hospitality, impeccable personal service and a convivial atmosphere are all equally important.
