A house with a history

  • The "Hirsch" was first documented in 1615. At that time, it was the property of the Zeiller family, who were running an inn with spacious stables and a large watering place for horses.
  • In 1782, the right to run a brewery was acquired for the "Hirsch" by Ignaz Geisenhof (1794-1818) and the inn brewed its own beer until 1907. The ice and storage cellar under the Mühlerstraße still exists today.
  • In 1896, a major fire broke out in the "Hirsch". As part of the following renovation work, the inn was extended by one floor.
  • In 1907, the Kursaal and concert hall - the largest in the region at that time - was added.
  • In 1913, Franz Kraus had the "Blaue Saal" built in Jugendstil design.
  • Franz Kraus initiated a driving force for tourism: the "Three Passes Tour", still current today, and set up a bus route between the Bavarian royal castles of Neuschwanstein and Lindenhof.
  • In 1932 the Kursaal was converted into a cinema and at the same time another floor was added.
  • After Franz Kraus' early death in 1933, his eight children continued to run the "Hirsch".
  • The hotel was occupied first by American and then later by French soldiers until 1954.
  • Helmut and Monika Kraus have run the hotel since 1973. Numerous renovations followed. For instance, the cinema was closed in 1986 and converted into a dining hall, and in 1990 the "Blaue Saal" was renovated.
  • Our house has a long history, which you will come across wherever you go.
