Vila Muhr

Bohinj, Slovenia

estd. 1902

. . .

Vila Muhr in Ribčev Laz was built in 1902 at the request of Adolf Muhr, who used it as a large hunting lodge. Later, it became the property of Aleksandar Karađorđević, so it was also known as Karađorđevićeva Vila. After the war, the vila functioned as an eye hospital and a recovery center for patients and war orphans. Later, under new ownership, it was used for tourism purposes until its sad demise. In 2014, it met its sad end. It finally collapsed under the weight of the snow.

In the rebirth of Vila Muhr, Alpinia, as the new owner, embarks on a royal story and a rich history.

At the end of autumn 2023, we closed the neighbouring Hotel Bohinj for two months, during which time we started preparatory work on the Vila Muhr construction site. Winter construction work has turned into the spring months of interior decoration, and we’re opening its doors in summer 2024.

Vila Muhr will offer four boutique suites, the largest of which will be 180 square metres. We are also proud to announce a new restaurant and a modern congress hall, which will be a great asset for congress tourism.

Like any value-added building, the new Vila Muhr tells its own story, along with the objects that once adorned the original spaces. Among other things, the foundation stones of the original hunting lodge have been properly placed in the new structure.

With Vila Muhr, we are setting a new standard for tourism in the region.

Welcome to Vila Muhr, the home of hospitality – bringing back health and shelter to pioneers in search of nature – an inexhaustible treasure trove of abundance.
