In 1996 the Romantik Hotel Oberwirt in Marling proudly celebrated an anniversary: 500 years! The Oberwirt was first documented in 1496. In fact, the history of our romantic hotel in Merano goes back even further than Emporer Maximillian ...
Since 1749 the Oberwirt and the agricultural pastures around it have been in the hands of the Waldner family. The original village inn has become the romantic Hotel Oberwirt and has earned itself a reputation as being a family-friendly luxury hotel in South Tyrol. However, the originality and tradition is still with us today and together with the South Tyrolean charm, it can be felt everywhere.
These days you'll find four generations of the Waldner family at the Oberwirt: from the great-grandmother to the three grandchildren. Great-grandmother Martha and her husband Franz (✝2008) took over the Oberwirt in 1949. They built up the guesthouse in the 50's and 60's with both courage and farsightedness. The first private open-air pool in the Merano region was a pioneering moment which was greeted with both admiration and skeptical shakes of the head by the locals. The guests, however, were all thrilled.
In 1973 the first born of the five children, son Josef, took over the Oberwirt. Together with his wife Renate, he tactfully and skillfully set the course for the future. Under his leadership, modern and contemporary luxury was introduced to the Oberwirt while leaving intact the quaint atmosphere and old tradition of the hotel. The last big project was carried out in 2009/2010 with the addition of the South Tyrolean garden house with its 3 elegant suites and a conference room for conference guests.
His daughter Barbara Waldner, the designated landlady supports him actively. And her three children, Annalena, Emily and Johann make up the 13th generation. The signs are good for continued tradition at the Oberwirt in the future ...
