History

The history of our house

Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten, a house steeped in history,
in Maurach am Achensee

Hubert Widauer, originally from St. Johann in Tyrol, and his wife Margarete from Maruach am Achensee built a 2-story house in 1958/1959, where they and the Oberlechner couple lived. After a short time, the house was bought by Ursula Klöcker, a resident of Zell am See. In 1963, this house was converted into an inn and named "Vier Jahreszeiten".

In 1968, it came up for auction, and the inn was bought by Michael Wegscheider, my father. I, his then 20 yr. old son Hermann Wegscheider, took over management of the inn with my mother in December 1969. In 1970, I met my wife Herta, and we married in 1975.

Purchase of the neighboring farm "Moser Ranch"

On June 25, 1976, our son Michael was born - our heir had arrived! In autumn of the same year, we built a dining hall with 200 seats, a reception area, toilet facility, and storage rooms. The kitchen, which was located in the cellar, was enlarged and another dumbwaiter added.

On January 30, 1979, our daughter Evelyne was born and our family was complete. In the same year, we acquired the old, neighboring farmhouse known as the "Moser Ranch".

In the short time from September 13 to December 20, 1983, all rooms in our inn "Vier Jahreszeiten" were newly renovated, expanded, and equipped with modern amenities including shower, WC, telephone, radio, and balcony. In addition, a third floor was added. The hotel "Vier Jahreszeiten" was born!

 

Renovations in spring 1986 at Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten

In the spring of 1986, the hotel was expanded to 10 rooms. We now had a capacity of 80 beds.

In 1989 from March to July, the front half of our "Moser Ranch" was torn down and newly rebuilt. This created 12 rooms, the "beer lounge" on the first floor, and the hair salon "Helga".

At the end of October 1992, in just 6 weeks of construction, we added a 4th floor and 11 additional rooms.

To fulfill the wishes of our guests and to meet the standards of the time, we made renovations yet again. From 1996 to 1997, we expanded the hotel with an underground garage, another dining room, the pool, the sauna facility, the beauty oasis, and 6 additional rooms. We were now the owners of the 4-star "Wellnesshotel Vier Jahreszeiten“..

 

Expansion and conversion of the "Ranch" into "Residenz Vier Jahreszeiten"

After the winter season 2000, we focused on the rear part of our "Moser Ranch". For our wellness guests, there was an urgent need to create a walkway between the houses. With the expansion of the 2nd part of our "ranch", we succeeded in developing the underground tunnel, where the seminar and fitness room are also located. We created an additional 12 rooms and named our ranch "Residenz Vier Jahreszeiten".

We were lucky in that we were able to gradually acquire land in our neighborhood. So, with the help of the community, we were able to move the street in front of our hotel and build a small garden and parking lot.

In 2002, our son Michael, who had spent 10 years improving his cooking skills in the most renowned houses abroad, came home. And again, new plans were made. Our house bar, the reception area with desk, the toilet facilities, and the children's playroom were built-on.

In 2004 - our modern kitchen was moved to the first floor, the old kitchen was used for a wine cellar, and cold storage facilities and a buffet room were created. Our gourmet restaurant , the "Michl Stub'n", was opened in Christmas 2004. 

Spring 2008 - completition July 1, 2008

We built and renovated rooms, the wellness area, and the beauty oasis.

  • 35 comfortable rooms and suites newly built according to the motto "spring, summer, autumn, and winter"

With our renovations in autumn 2012, 18 rooms followed, and a large part were completely rebuilt, enlarged, and equipped with bathrooms and balconies. We converted one of our restaurants into a lounge made of pine and designed according to the theme "spring". We also refurbished our large dining room. We replaced the windows and facade, and the adjoining building, the "Residenz", got a new coat of paint to match the fresh, new hotel style.

After 45 years in Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten, we passed our life's work to the Condotta family from Italy on December 1, 2015 and retired.

With mixed feelings, we look back on a very intense time with many ups and downs. We are very proud of what we accomplished and also relieved that we were able to put our hotel in the trustworthy and capable hands of the Condotta family.

We wish the Condotta family the best of luck and much health and happiness, and we are very happy that they will continue to run the Vier Jahreszeiten like we would.

Sincere Tyrolean hospitality and Italian passion are your guarantors of unforgettable days in Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten. Together with our dedicated employees, we are planning many new things and are full of new ideas.

In November 2015, the sauna area was rebuilt. A new panoramic sauna with an incredible view of the mountains was constructed, and the combination of modern elements and traditional materials such as old wood creates a special ambiance.

A new aromatic steam bath, a saltwater grotto, two swinging loungers, and a Physiotherm lounge invite you to relax and unwind. Refreshing wellness drinks are available for free in the sauna area.

Our garden was expanded with a new, romantic grill hut, and for smokers, there is now a cozy lounge outside the hotel entrance.

The new, modern foyer of our Residenz building gave us a little taste of what was to come in spring 2016. In March, 12 completely new rooms of the “Residenz Bärenkopf” category were built, and the rest of the rooms were renovated.
