The history of our hotel “Der Salzburger Hof”


Salzburg Hospitality – is lived since more than 100 years.

The history of our hotel


The history of our house began more than hundred years ago. At that time, the “Gasthof zum Bayerischen Hof” welcomed its guests. As of 1944, “Bayerischer Hof” was operated as a hotel and the building enlarged with a new wing.

The Porsche group acquired the house in 1964 und made it one of the city’s prime addresses. Room decoration was designed by Louise von Piëch, Ferdinand Porsche’s daughter. In March 2000, the hotel was transformed into a family enterprise.

The Donhauser family rented the house and acquired it four years later from the Porsche Holding. 2007 marked the birth of “Salzburger Hof”. Showing their ties with the city of Salzburg is not just a matter of course for the Donhauser family; it’s rather a passion and became the pivotal point during the renovation works occurring since 2011 on a regular basis.

As of 2014, the younger generation (Andrea and Marius Donhauser) manages the Hotel Salzburger Hof with a young committed staff. They all ensure that individual care for the guests has utmost priority and each single guest can enjoy his stay to his heart’s content.
