The Wiesenhof – from farmhouse to spa hotel
A quaint farmhouse in the centre of Pertisau 100 years ago, today a tasteful 4-star superior SPA & Park Hotel for all generations. A retreat for wellness guests who look for high standards in quality.
“Come as a guest. Leave as a friend.” Under this motto the family of Johannes Entner now leads the Wiesenhof in the third generation. Our guests can expect great attention to detail, cordiality and high quality standards in all areas.
The Achensee region used to be a popular hunting and fishing area for the sovereigns of the country. In the middle of the 19th century tourism began in the Achensee region. In 1887 the steamship “St. Josef” and two years later the steam-cog-railway brought more and more guests to Pertisau.
300 years ago the Wiesenhof was originally built as a farmhouse. Between 1936 and 1941 most of the guests at the Wiesenhof were Germans, among them the daughter of the famous physicist Max Planck. After the war most tourists came from Italy, France and Switzerland.
Tourism in Pertisau
From 1951 German tourists came again to Pertisau. At that time Pertisau was known as a climatic spa. In 1956 wood prices declined dramatically due to masses of storm damaged wood. The decision was made to turn the Wiesenhof into a bed & breakfast guesthouse for summer visitors. Skiing in the Tirolean Alps became a mass sport and in 1967 the Wiesenhof was set up for winter business (heating!).
The family has continuously invested in the enhancement of board and lodging and the services. In 2001 the “KARWENDEL SPA” was opened. Today the Wiesenhof is one of the best 4-Star Superior Spa Hotels in Tirol. During the past few years the Wiesenhof has achieved numerous awards, among others for the “most family-friendly business”.
