Our History

 

How it all began. Welcome Home!

When Maria and Josef Falkensteiner opened a small guesthouse in 1957 in the Pustertal Valley in South Tyrol, nobody could have imagined that in just over 60 years it would develop into one of the most successful family-run holiday hotel groups in Central Europe. 

"The decisive factor was that we always saw ourselves as a family business and never forgot our South Tyrolean roots", Erich Falkensteiner.

Even as an internationally operating hotel company with 26 hotels and 3 apartment complexes in 7 countries, we have managed to maintain the individuality and specific character of each individual house. 

 

The Falkensteiner Hospitality Philosophy

Alpine down-to-earthness, Austrian reliability and a Mediterranean attitude to life are combined with family values and genuine hospitality. A combination that you will feel in every one of our hotels - in the architecture, the culinary offer, the quality and the unique feeling of being "at home" nowhere better than in a Falkenstein hotel. In this sense "Welcome Home!

"The challenge is not to build a hotel, but to create a home," says Erich Falkensteiner.
