What would Aunt Lisl say if she had witnessed all the changes of the last 70 years? From a simple forest inn to a 4**** superior hiking and wellness hotel. We believe that we have done everything right and that Aunt Lisl would be really proud of us.
For 3 generations, we have been taking care of our guests’ wishes at the Hotel Gassner with all our hearts. We look forward to a nice “Hoagascht” on your well-deserved holiday, relaxing hours and the best holiday and hiking stories from the mountains.
We like to look back, but even better to look forward – to what could enrich your holiday with us at the 4-star superior hiking and wellness hotel Gassner in the Salzburger Land.
In 1949 Hans and Lisl Gassner built the small guesthouse “Landhaus Gassner” next to the forest. Thus laid the foundation for the success story of our lived hospitality.
Only two years after the opening, the guesthouse was expanded for the first time and the “Gasthof Gassner” was created – with a cozy dining room, 28 guest beds, hot and cold running water and a shower on the floor.
1957 a long-cherished dream came true with the own farm “Kühnreit”. At that time, our guests were picked up from the train station with the horse lady called “Lotti”.
For the time, the Gasthof Gassner was a noble house! And the “summer visitors” came and enjoyed the hospitality.
1967 the main building was raised for the 1st time and the dining room was built.
1977–1979 22 comfort rooms, as well as indoor swimming pool and sauna were built. The Hotel Gassner now had 100 beds and 50 rooms. In the following years, the hotel had to be managed economically so that the high loan installments could be repaid. 1977 daughter Sonja was born and 1979 son Hans-Peter. Sepp marries his Renate.
1981 the business was taken over by Sepp and Renate. In the following years, further conversions and additions were made: 1987 the installation of a lift and 1998 the building of the Relax Sauna World.
2000 followed the renovation of our dining room and since 2001 we are a member of the Wanderhotels. Our new reception area, the hotel bar and the addition of the winter garden are 2004 created. The new suites and rooms were built in 2006
This year a joyful event took place – already the next generation of the Gassners took over the Wanderhotel – Hans-Peter and Sonja Gassner.
From 2008 to 2012 the reconstruction of our indoor swimming pool, of 16 rooms into new feel-good rooms and the renewal of the lift and the stove in our kitchen took place. 2013 we were pleased to receive the Austrian Ecolabel award.
2016 we remodeled our rooms on the 1st floor, the massage area and our children’s playroom and renewed the fire protection. 2017 we built the employee house for our employees.
Since 2019 our newly built tree house offers a hideaway in the treetops for our guests.
2019 – 2020 then followed the major wellness expansion to 1200m ² with natural pool, relaxation room, panoramic outdoor sauna, salt sauna, infrared relaxation lounge, covered terrace and new gardenlandscaping.
2020 the reconstruction of our dining room with a new, spacious buffet area took place. Furthermore, we were pleased about the hotel classification 4 stars superior as well as the HolidayCheck Special Award. 2021.
