Apartments in Obertauern

Welcome at the Zirbenhof

Passionate host couple meets dream location directly on the slopes. This is roughly how the beginning of Zirbenhof can be described. In 1955, Peter and Maria Steinwender laid the foundation for today’s hotel right by the slopes in the ski-paradise of Obertauern. Centrally located, yet so far away from everyday life – all the closer to the perfect holiday happiness. Since then, guests from all over the world are welcome at the Zirbenhof in a familiarly and cordial manner.


Peter und Maria Steinwender build the ‘Pension Zirbenhof‘ and run the 20-bed hotel until the end of the 1982 season.
Hermann Steinwender takes over the Zirbenhof and begins to modernise the hotel step by step.
After completion of the renovation works, the original hotel has become a hotel consisting of 18 apartments including a wellness area. Dorothea and Hermann Steinwender are the hosts of the Zirbenhof until 2020.
Further investments are being made in comfort and accessibility, from the modern ‘Zirbenglück’ apartment, the extended ski cellar, a new access road and a passenger lift.

Arrived in Obertauern - today.

Today the owner family, Sandra and Florian Steinwender, make sure that the Zirbenhof does not stand still. They fine-tune the smallest details, have a keen sense for the wishes of their guests and find great enjoyment in continuous improvement. A recipe for success that has provided unforgettable holiday experiences and memories at the Zirbenhof for almost 70 years.
