Our passion for hospitality

History of the Hotel Magdalena

The 'Magdalena' is now run by the family's third generation. Frau Magdalena Schösser has been the heart of the family-run business since 1972 and always there to take good care of her guests. Herr Gottfried Schösser, as a wine connoisseur, organises weekly wine tastings! Herr Bernhard Riedl (son-in-law) has been head chef since 1999 and is responsible for culinary matters at the Hotel Magdalena. Frau Margareta Riedl (daughter) manages reception as well as marketing.

The Magdalena has been managed by the young generation since November 2015!
Margareta & Bernhard Riedl, together with Valentina, welcome this new challenge.
