The history of Schlosswirt

A building with a lot of tradition

The history of Schlosswirt Anif goes back to the 16th century. Originally it was a farm and belonged to the archbishops and local lords of Salzburg. From the 16th century it was named Schönauergut. In 1607, the inn was granted the right to sell food and beverages. Afterwards it was called the upper tavern or simply the upper inn. Since the Bavarian Count Alois of Arco-Steppberg took over the inn with his farm and butcher's shop in 1843, the building belongs to the Anif estate and bears the name Schlosswirt.

The architecture

on the ground and first floors date back to the 16th century. This includes the exterior walls. Notable are the marble walls around the windows and the entrance gate which is from the late Gothic period. The roof was renovated again and can be dated back to 1763. In 1843, renovations were made by Count Arco-Steppberg.

To this day, both the exterior walls and the interior of the castle estate have been restored in Biedermeier style in keeping with its past.
