…. …. In remembrance of Antonia Thurner
In the years around 1930 when our Guesthouse Thurnerwas built, Antonia and Hans Thurner chose the most beautiful spot in the small village of Bruck for its location.
Situated on a small south-facing slope in the centre of the village, the guesthouse enjoys its peaceful, wonderful and sunny location, surrounded by lush meadows and orchards. With the opening of the Großglockner High Alpine Road Bruck became known as the starting point in this mountain area and soon became a very popular holiday resort. Even then, Zell am See and Kaprun were attractive destinations for excursions.
Guests from all over Austria, Germany, Holland etc. were our guests and enjoyed the “summer freshness” in the mountains. Celebrities and political greats from the Austrian capital Vienna could be found for many years at the enthusiastic and ambitious hostess Antonia.
Subsequently, the son Fritz followed in the footsteps of his parents and built the inn “Weißes Rößl” with his wife Gertraud, named after a former post office where horses were changed.
Back then, rooms with running water were the greatest possible comfort and modern bathrooms in the distant future.
In the 1960s, the first guests from Germany, Denmark and the Netherlands came to Austria and the Pinzgau for winter sports.
With the increasing popularity of air travel, winter soon became more important than summer for local tourism in Salzburg, with the number of skiers steadily increasing.
The European sports region is now one of the most beautiful ski areas in Austria and snowmaking systems and, above all, the glacier guarantee Kitzsteinhorn 100% guaranteed snow. Given today’s uncertain snow conditions, this is an important factor when choosing a ski area.
In the third generation, Elfi and Christine, Antonia Thurner’s granddaughters, have taken over the management of the houses.
The inn was converted into an apartment-pension. The spacious, sunny apartments leave the guests amazed at the comfortable holiday apartment they find.
It is their endeavor to offer families and groups a cozy, well-kept home with an excellent price-performance ratio.
Due to the close proximity to Zell am See and Kaprun, our apartments are ideal for summer and winter vacationers.
“If you have a wish, please let us know – we will do everything to make your vacation as pleasant as possible” – the two sisters will hand over the keys to your apartment personally. “
