Your host family

The Ortner family welcomes you

When you spend your luxury holiday at Hotel Eschenhof you will be welcomed by an extended family of three generations under one roof.

Having an extended family represents a homely feeling of belonging. Every member of staff at Eschenhof is a part of this, which is what gives Eschenhof its particular charm.
The couple Hildegard and Gerhard Ortner took over Hotel Eschenhof from his parents and built it up to its current size with a great deal of hard work and dedication.

Their sons Martin and Maximilian grew up within the hotel business and still now they often share family meals at the hotel. Martin is training to be a doctor and studied in Graz, his younger brother Maximilian currently attends the tourism school in Bad Hofgastein. Running the hotel is still firmly in the hands of the middle generation, but they are already looking forward to the younger generation’s ideas with regard to Hotel Eschenhof’s future.

However, it is not only the young ones that play a role in the Eschenhof extended family, the senior generation are also still part of everyday life at the hotel to a certain extent. The senior owner Rudi often accompanies Eschenhof guests on guided hikes in the Nockberge in summer and he lends a helping hand at the ‘Snow Bar’ in the Maibrunn chalet in winter.
