One family. Three generations.
From small farmhouse to four-star hotel
What today is widely known and appreciated as the Wohlfühlhotel Schiestl has its origins in a simple farmhouse - and the Maria and Gottfried Schiestl family. Gottfried Schiestl was born in the "Dinkland“ house in 1927. Both Gottfried and Maridl Schiestl grew up as children of farmers in Fügenberg. Gottfried Schiestl laid the foundation stone for today's wellness hotel by converting the farmhouse into a guesthouse. The hotel founders remained closely connected to the hotel and their beloved regular guests until their death.
Close affinity to nature and love for the homeland, the beautiful Ziller Valley
These two themes have always played a central role in the history of the Schiestl family. They have also had a lasting influence on the philosophy of hospitality. Even in 1960, when the establishment was still being used as a guesthouse, the summer visitors were naturally integrated into domestic life. Everybody sat down together by the stove of an evening, chatting and playing music. They all enjoyed cosy and informal evenings. Regular guests soon became friends. A lot has changed on the outside, but the Schiestl family has always remained true to this attitude.
While Gottfried was the mayor of Fügenberg between 1965 and 1992, where he was instrumental in initiating and driving forward the expansion of the Hochfügen ski resort, his wife Maridl and their four children built up the hotel.
