Beer hotel Loncium – Kötschach-Mauthen

Beer hotel Loncium - Kötschach-Mauthen

The beer hotel Loncium in Kötschach-Mauthen offers wild and romantic fly fishing adventures in Carinthia and the highest beer enjoyment.

Guests of Bierhotel Loncium can expect numerous fishing grounds in the beautiful nature of the Southern Alps. At 120 kilometers, the Gail is the third longest river in Carinthia. During the fishing vacation at the Fischerhotel, it is necessary to conquer the most beautiful areas for fly fishing, up to the source of the river in the Lesach Valley. The hotel has the best fishing tips and fishing maps in the luggage!

Against the magnificent natural backdrop of the Lesach Valley, delicious craft beers from the in-house brewery can be enjoyed, because beer enjoyment and fishing vacation enjoyment go hand in hand here. The best craft beers in the country are produced in the beer manufactory adjacent to the hotel. The ABENTEUER FISCHWASSER beer also comes from the renowned Loncium brewery. Thus, special delicacies can be taken to the fishing trip every day.

Modern equipment and nature enjoyment

The Fishermen’s Hotel has spacious and charmingly furnished double and single rooms with state-of-the-art bathrooms, some of which offer a view of the local mountain (Polinik). For anglers there is a drying room and a cozy fishing corner for sharing experiences. Those who would like a special “alpine feeling” can ask for the fragrant herbal pillows that bring a piece of nature directly into the hotel room. Enjoyment of nature and “homemade” is generally capitalized at the Bierhotel Loncium. This also applies to the excellent cuisine: delicious burgers, sensational steaks and varied salads – all guests will find their taste here.

A true all-round hotel

In addition to fly fishermen, the beer hotel has additionally specialized in bikers and hiking vacationers. So if you want to diversify your fishing vacation: a hike in the Gailtal Alps is especially recommended. And for motorcyclists, the hotel not only offers ample garage space, but also discounted tickets for some Carinthian Alpine roads – including the Grossglockner High Alpine Road.

Fly fishing around the beer hotel Loncium – a varied experience:

Ber fishing at the Zollner

At 1,780 m above sea level, the Zollnersee is located in a beautiful high moor.



1 kilometer Wiesenbach, feeder stream to the river Gail

The Mühlbach is a branch of the Valentinbach and flows through the village of Mauthen. On the outskirts of the village stands the saw Lederer. There the actual fishing route begins and winds for a kilometer through meadows and bushes, all the way to the mouth of the river Gail. The fishermen reach the stream via Mauthen or via the Gailuferweg on the right. The abundance of grayling brings even beginners Petri-Heil!


Valentine’s Gorge

6 kilometers of wild rocky gorge, crystal clear mountain water, nature reserve

The famous rock gorge begins in Mauthen. From there, the Valentinbach meanders through a wildly romantic rocky gorge with 300 meter towering rock walls. The initial 1.5 kilometers are accessible to fishermen via a sightseeing pier. The fish are very shy and if you don’t stalk them, you’re out of luck. Since the canyon is shady, there are many fish, but not too big. At the end of the developed climbing route, we go inside the gorge with water shoes and rockfall helmets.

The upper part of the gorge can be reached via the Plöckenstraße, where 600 meters after the Ederwirt inn, the Roman path leads to the Valentinbach stream, which at this point plunges into the gorge via eight waterfalls. Deep green pools are home to many small but also some large fish, such as brown trout and char with beautiful markings. Fly fishing in this area is particularly arduous and physically demanding, but scenically beautiful.


Angerbach Valley

4 kilometers from the green lake to the source

In the flat Angerbach mountain valley, which steadily rises slightly (from 1,200 to 1,500 meters in altitude), tranquil fishing in alpine terrain is possible. Now and then, whitewater barriers with deep pools interrupt the stream route. Shallow, wide gravel stretches follow, followed by torrent-like surges. All around nature, alpine flowers, meadows and high forests. In the Angerbach valley still lives the primeval brook trout with beautiful markings. For fishermen with patience and skill in targeted point casting.



A reservoir that unmistakably resembles a natural lake. With unspoiled shores, bright green water and great depth visibility, the lake is nestled in the lovely alpine landscape at 1,250 meters above sea level.
It is quiet at the lake. One finds oneself in a restful world. The mountains are reflected in the water. The Plöckenhaus is a ten-minute walk away.


Lake Cellon

The rock tower of Cellon is reflected in the lake. It is located at 1,200 meters above sea level, right next to the Plöckenhaus and is fed by a torrent – called “Kuchlbach”.
