In the early 1970s our parents Hans and Ernestine Rettenwender rented a mountain lodge and ran it as a youth hostel. Zauchensee continued to develop rapidly as a holiday resort. Soon they had the idea for a guesthouse and construction began in May 1981. In December 1982 the guesthouse already had more than 50 beds, a restaurant and a self-service inn. In 1990 the first large wellness area and underground parking were added. In 2008 the wada residence was built, over 1000 m² on 4 floors.

In 1997 the Guesthouse Alpenrose became the Hotel Alpenrose and the number of beds was increased to 80. We have been running this hotel with great enthusiasm since 01.01.2001, as the second generation managers. 

Our motto today is the same as it was many years ago “Feel at home away from home”. We would like all our guests to feel this too, on holiday with us in Zauchensee in Salzburger Land.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to our hotel!

We are very gladly available to you for possible questions!
