The hotel in the centre of Velden that’s open all year round

Spend your Wörthersee holiday in the best location – in the middle of all the action in Velden, with its own lido by Lake Wörthersee, close to Casino Velden and directly at the shopping zone and promenade. Outside the pulsating life, inside the soothing comfort of the rooms and suites with various styles of furnishings, the new, very tasteful, 200 square metre wellness area with a 40 square metre terrace and a fitness area that feels almost completely private, with the newest Technogym equipment.

Hotel Post in Velden am Wörthersee is located at Lake Wörthersee in Carinthia, but you’ll feel like you’re a bit further south, in Italy. The hosts are authentic, the style is chic, and it’s so simple to enjoy sweet idleness or “dolce farniente”. This Italian feeling in the heart of Velden has a name: Franca Wrann. She was born in Italy and incorporates Italian flair into the atmosphere at Hotel Post.

Veldener Advent 2018 in Velden am Wörthersee

In der Adventzeit (23.11. - 23.12.2018) verwandelt sich Velden zur leuchtenden Engelstadt am Ufer des Wörthersees. Fleißige Engelchen putzen den Ort zauberhaft heraus und legen ihm ein strahlendes Kleid an.

Einzigartig wie der Veldener Advent ist auch die Lage des Ortes selbst: Direkt an der malerischen Bucht des Wörthersees, umrundet von der verschneiten Kärntner Bergwelt.

Heimelige Düfte von Zimt, Orangen und Vanillekipferln wechseln sich mit Gerüchen von Tannenreisig und Honigkerzen ab und ergeben zusammen eine unverwechselbare Symphonie der Vorweihnachtszeit.

History of Hotel Post Wrann

The hotel was first mentioned in documents in 1767 and was awarded the “Wirtsgerechtigkeit” (landlord rights) from the Counts of Dietrichstein in 1787.

In the following years, called Gasthaus zur Post, it was run as a postal stop on the postal route between Vienna and Venice (Trieste – Gorizia).

In 1836, the building was called Gasthof zum Oberrichter (in English, Chief Justice’s Inn), as Philipp Wrann held the high position of judge.

Once the southern train line was completed, tourism really boomed, and many famous guests became frequent summer holidaymakers.

Destroyed in both World Wars, it was rebuilt both times, and the private hotel chain expanded to include Seehotel Europa, Gästehaus Post – Wrann (in Velden) and Hotel Bergkristall (in Oberlech).

The public beachside lido Wrann also belongs to the hotel.

It’s just a few steps to the shopping zone and promenade, to Casino Velden, to the bars, bistros, sunny terraces and the hotel’s own beach. And it’s just far enough away to appreciate being able to sleep in peace, to enjoy the garden and the sanctuary.

Italian hospitality and Carinthian charm

Hotel Post in Velden is influenced by the holiday destinations of Austria and Italy, and it creates an ambience that is unique at Lake Wörthersee. Now in the 7th generation, the Wrann family combines ...


... the Italian hospitality of Franca Wrann’s homeland with the Carinthian charm of both Anton Wrann and sons to create a holiday feeling that is characterised by lightness and warmth.

Stylish rooms and suites

Italian chic can be seen in the stylish furnishings with selected, tasteful materials in the understated colours beige, silver-grey and matt gold. The family-run hotel grew slowly – always keeping with the style of the times. Choose from the rooms and suites and family-friendly units in both “classic” and “modern” designs. The quality in all rooms is very high, even extending to the high-quality material of the balcony furniture.

Deluxe wellness and fitness

You’ll be surprised by how much there is on offer and how good it all is. Covering a generous 200 square metres you can relax in luxury. Four saunas, an ice well, ice canal, heated bench, relaxation room and vitality bar offer wellness at the highest level. And not just because the wellness area is on the top floor. From the Finnish sauna you can look the church tower’s clock in the face and still forget the passing of time. The furnishings are also of a high standard and carry the signature of hostess Franca Wrann. Much of the wellness furniture was made exclusively using her ideas. The large relaxation room with loungers, fireplace with fire simulation and artistically designed wall make it feel like a spacious living room with loggia. The high quality continues in the fitness area: 4 pieces of Technogym equipment, a Kinesis wall and a dozen free weights will certainly put you in the mood for exercising.
