Our hotel in Mayrhofen through the years
Four centuries of hospitality – that’s what awaits you during your holidays in the Alps at the 4-star hotel in Mayrhofen, the Hotel Neue Post. Today’s hotel in Mayrhofen was first documented in 1664. At that time, it was still called “Glasnergut” and was listed with a “tavern or inn licence”. In the 19th century, hunting set the stage for the growing tourism. The Auersperg and Fürstenberg princes came to Zillertal for their annual autumn hunts and stayed at the Gasthaus Zum Stern, which was the name of our hotel in Tyrol at the time. Having our own farm meant that we could rely on our land for many ingredients. Even in today’s 4-star hotel in Tyrol, only the best from the region can be found on your plate.
At our hotel in Mayrhofen, tradition meets modernity
In 1825, Josef Wildauer bought our hotel in Mayrhofen, and 20 years later, he passed it on to his son Ludwig Wildauer. He moved the post office to his house and renamed it Neue Post (new post office). Our hotel in Mayrhofen still bears this name today. With the construction of the Zillertal Railway to Mayrhofen, the uncomfortable journeys with the horse-drawn omnibus were no longer necessary and summer holidays in the Alps experienced its first heyday. In 1954, with the construction of the Penkenbahn cable car, the foundation for winter holidays in the Alps was established. The Hotel Neue Post, our 4-star hotel in Mayrhofen, has been around for more than 350 years with its rich and eventful history. Withstanding ups and downs, good times and bad. But we have always made sure to offer our guests a temporary home, good food and drink, a roof over their heads and – last but not least – good entertainment.
Tradition, charm, and character – our accommodation in Mayrhofen
Fritz and Gisela Pfister took over the Hotel Neue Post, our hotel in Tyrol, from their parents in 1961 and have managed it for over forty years. They handed it over to their son Wilhelm and his wife Elisabeth, who carried on the tradition with passion, heart, and soul. Since 2015, grandson Wilhelm Jr has been fully involved, and together with his wife, they also carry on the family tradition with great commitment. The entire Pfister family have one thing in common: their sincere effort to offer all guests at the Neue Post, our 4-star hotel in Mayrhofen, an atmosphere in which they feel comfortable and can relax.
