Hosts who work with passion

Anna Hinterberger can often be encountered in the herb garden, where she is delighted to pass on her knowledge about healing herbs to her guests and anyone who is interested.

The history of the Bachmanngut

Tradition & Down-to-earthness

It all began with a little farm in 1685, surrounded by fields and woodland above Wolfgangsee – The Bachmanngut. A simple life, growing potatoes and a few animals which provided their living.

At the end of the 1950s a sawmill was added. Yet the Hinterberger family recognised the signs of the times and in 1977, with Pension Bergheimat, the foundation stone for today’s 4-star hotel in St. Wolfgang was laid.

The Tennis Hotel Wolfgangsee …

After the construction of more rooms and the tennis hall, on 06. May 1979 Tennis Hotel at Wolfgangsee opened. This was a sensation at the time - a South African tennis school for guest tennis lessons here at Wolfgangsee. Success was not long in coming.

With personal commitment and a particular flair for the needs and wants of their guests, the hotel continued to be further developed. With an extensive Wellness and Spa selection.  With its indoor and outdoor pools the Tennis Hotel moved on and became 4* Vitalhotel Wolfgangsee – an exclusive wellness hotel with an extensive tennis selection and was renowned for its outstanding cuisine.

… became 4* Vitalhotel Wolfgangsee

Looking forward, the offers continue to be expanded upon. In the last few years thanks to the children's farm and other leisure and relaxation offers, an extensive selection became available for families who wanted to enjoy a nature-oriented holiday at Wolfgangsee and for sports-oriented people enjoying a holiday in the Salzkammergut, who also want to explore the region as well as enjoying the amenities in the hotel.

The Bachmanngut – for the love of tradition

From the original tennis hotel over the years a place emerged which offered lots of opportunities – for those looking for relaxation, athletes and families. Natural, endearing and relaxing. Yet something that has always been - this is a place that is down-to-earth and connected to nature. THE BACHMANNGUT.

The Bachmanngut is not just a place, rather it is a feeling. A feeling of connection to tradition, to values and to the people who live here. The Hinterberger family are proud of their roots. The Bachmanngut has been the starting point for all this development, an energy-filled space in the middle of the Salzkammergut. A place worthy of remembering. And so the Vitalhotel has become what it has always been – The Bachmanngut at Wolfgangsee.
