So much NEW! from December 2022

Your hosts in Obertauern

Andrea, Thomas, Maximilian and Jakob. A family for families. A quartet of good spirits for duets, solos and more.

Since it always sounds a little odd to write about oneself, we asked a regular guest who has appreciated our hotel in Obertauern for over 15 years to briefly put his thoughts about us into words. And this is what he said: “Andrea has been here from the very beginning. Is here from the beginning. When you come into the house full of expectation the first time, full of anticipation from the second time. Cool hairstyle, was my first thought in those days. Not Salzburg at all, not Obertauern at all. Fits very well. Attentiveness and cordiality in person - but at the same time always staying true to oneself. Not speaking this German German which I sadly grew accustomed to in the Alps.

Thomas? A likeable, beaming rock. A man full of benevolence. You can feel the love for the profession, the love for the family, for Andrea. Every evening it is always such a magical moment for me and my family when we enter the restaurant and Thomas, Andrea and often other family members or relatives are sitting at the big table near the entrance. Not as a fake reception committee but as the Steiners who live here in the hotel. Whose living room is the hotel. They have shared with me that they only have a small apartment in the hotel because they regard the whole hotel as their apartment. And have furnished it accordingly cosy. Without frills, knickknack and not running after trends.

Coming in, being greeted, an honest smile. A fine start to a fine evening after a good day. The boys? Fortunately, they have not been made house mascots, they bring life into the house when they are here but they are never shoved into the foreground to the guests’ entertainment. And it is well. They are who they are. An incredibly authentic family whose roots will always be Obertauern and whose hotel is their own centre of life”. 

"A hotel isn't a fossilized thing.  We are constantly developing, growing to meet the changing needs of our guests.  It is an exhilarating and passionate process ... "

"For me, the most beautiful moment is when the departing guest is already talking about their next vacation here with us ... "

Mom's Darling & Papas pride

"My name is Maximilian I was born on February 11th 2008 with a birth weight of 3270 g and I radically changed life of Mum und Dad! I am already looking forward to the summer season when things really start happening"

The little brother

"I'm Jakob Steiner and I completet the Steiner family on the 21st of July 2012. In the future I will show to all – that also "little brothers“ can be quite big!"

Our underlying principles.

  • We do everything it takes to give our guests a carefree vacation.
  • Through ongoing investments, we increase the quality of our hotel and count ourselves amongst the very best in the hospitality sector.
  • We give each other mutual motivation and support, these making us an even stronger team. We combine this with quick, efficient work, to ensure our guests are always satisfied.
  • Tolerance and  appreciation: Things that each and every one of our employees can rely on. The result: joy in our work.
  • We prize detail, for it is in those little things that we seek the extraordinary.
  • And last but not least: A family ambience and sincerely felt friendliness play an exceptionally important role.

"It is my vision to become the best hotel in Obertauern, managed at the highest level and to strengthen the family atmosphere."
