Your Host

"Hanselewirt has been run for generations of my family.  For over 20 years now, I have had the privilege and responsibility of running Hanselewirt. 

The satisfaction of our guests is not taken for granted.  It is planned, for the future, that one of my daughters will takeover this family business, so that it remains in our family for future generations.!

I have spent my whole working life, actually my entire life, in the hotel business.  Each satisfied customer confirms to me, that this is my life and not just a career.  I am very grateful for this.

Josef Schweiger, your host
