a family story
How it all began: 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 …
From mountain guesthouse to wellness hotel
1981: Opening as a geusthouse
1982: The guesthouse already had more than 50 beds, a restaurant and a self-service inn.
1990: The first large wellness area and underground parking were added.
2008: The wada residence was built, over 1000 m² on 4 floors.
2017: The entrance area and the reception are redesigned, and with the Almstube we build an extension to the dining room.
2019: Complete redesign of the cozy nest rooms.
„Fell at home away from home“
We are the Rettenwenders
Marlene & Hans and the “juniors” Hansi, Martina and Magdalena all work in the hotel together. We are a real family business.
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!
