Kristania Popup

Who We Are

Kristiania Lech is hosting a visionary summer 2020 Pop Up project celebrating everything beautiful from contemporary art to Austrian joie d’vivre and our wonderful Arlberg mountains in pristine nature. The focus is on supporting the local community, bespoke art, music and dance performances.

Think “intellectual Sommerfrische”: Banksy meets Frank Sinatra and Empress Sisi for a soul searching hiking tour in a breathtaking alpine setting, Lech.

Be part of our Kristiania Summer Pop Up “Rat Pack”!


Picture the scene: a bowl of peaches still warm from the sun, between the meadow flowers and herbs, lady bugs flying and buzzing bees, sun-kissed mountain peaks, the aroma of freshly brewed coffee and the inevitable holiday dilemma – which of the beautiful terraces to choose for a lazy snooze in the sun, which of the perfectly crafted cocktails to enjoy while listening to Frank Sinatra’s “Bluemoon” during sun set hour and finally deciding which peaceful mountain peak to conquer the next day – full of renewed energy. 

Step into the creative world of our Summer 2020 Pop Up magic where vibrant contemporary art, captivating music and dance, collectable textiles, exceptional furniture and late 60ties architecture are mixed with tailor-made service in the dazzling setting of the picturesque village of Lech. Bring home a piece of the Arlberg. It’s about fun. It’s original. It’s about Austria and creating memories.


The Summer Pop Up features 6 select luxury guest suites with ensuite bathrooms and an option to add a third bed. Some feature dining rooms or library and a private balcony with sweeping views of the village or mountains. All our suites talk about the spirit of old world lifestyle, drawing from Gertrud Schneiders own travels across the globe. Inspired by the 19th century “Grand Tour” each suite is conceived to surprise.
