Hotel Steiger – Hospitality and Tradition since 1969
The family-run hotel in the foothills of the Großvenediger
The Zirbenhotel Steiger is now in its third generation of management, and – as always – it is your holiday home in the heart of the Alps. Warm hospitality, traditional gastronomy and a healthy night's sleep are the ingredients for a completely successful and relaxing stay.
From an Alpine lodge to a bed and breakfast
After 19 years as landlord and landlady of the Warnsdorferhütte Alpine lodge, Karl and Burgl Steiger decided to take the daring step of becoming a bed and breakfast, and in 1969, the Cafe-Pension Steiger opened with 12 rooms. The new bed and breakfast was a sensation - not least because all the rooms had running hot and cold water. Over the years, the Steiger family bed and breakfast became a fixture for tourist accommodation in Neukirchen am Großvenediger.
From a bed and breakfast to a hotel
In 1980, all of the guest rooms gained their own bathrooms which provided added comfort. The Cafe Steiger, which had become part of the hotel, continued to be managed by the Steiger family with all of their love and attention to detail.
In 1983, Sepp Steiger and his wife Margarethe took over management of the hotel, and managed it with all of their dedication and much success until 2002.
The Zirbenhotel Steiger today
In 2002, the traditional Austrian hotel was transformed into a modern, but still very comfortable, four star hotel. The upgrade and renovation saw the traditional hotel gaining 15 new rooms and studios. A small and comfy wellness area and the swimming pond, which is very popular in the summer, completed the offering.
Now in the hands of Christian and Sabine Steiger, in 2010, the most recent extension and renovation of the family-run hotel was completed. That year saw 22 new rooms and suites being added, the furnishing of which takes the holiday requirements of allergy-sufferers into account.
One thing that hasn't changed at the Zirbenhotel Steiger is the traditional hospitality and the great tradition for gastronomy. Taken together, these two things create a comfortable atmosphere for your relaxing holiday in the heart of the Alps, between the Krimml Waterfalls and the Großvenediger. Now more than ever, the traditional Steiger hotel is a perfect place for a break in which you will forget all about daily life.
