Your hosts at the Romantik Hotel Oberwirt near Merano:

Feel at home with the Waldner family and the Oberwirt team

Some of the regular guests at the romantic hotel near Merano used to sit on Martha Waldner's lap as small children. Now they have families themselves and come to the Oberwirt with their little ones - and are always happy to see Martha Waldner again. She is over 80 years old and a great-grandmother, but is still energetically involved in running the hotel.

A friendly house of many generations: your romantic hotel near Merano

The Oberwirt is a house of generations in two senses: firstly, there are 4 generations of the Waldner family living under one roof who carry on the more than 250 years of family tradition.

Get to know the people at the Oberwirt:

Josef (Sepp) Waldner – Oberwirt "patron" with heart and soul

Whatever Sepp Waldner is faced with, he tackles it with passion and a desire for success. He's been leading the Oberwirt since 1973 and in this time he has brought together in perfect harmony the quaint atmosphere and the old traditions of the hotel with the modern and contemporary luxury of today.

Sepp Waldner has also made his name as a passionate and visionary architect, as a renowned Haflinger horse breeder, as a grower of roses and as a passionate wine producer. With everything, highest quality is his principle ... The boss is energetically supported by his daughter, Barbara.

Martha Waldner – Mother Waldner

The senior partner and great-grandmother is affectionately known to everyone as "mum". And that's what she really is - always there with an open heart and ready to listen to everyone. She'll personally greet you with her good mood at breakfast and with hiking and shopping tips. At 80 years old she still looks great.
