Hotel Brückenwirt’s history: how the Hotel Brückenwirt developed into a 4-star-hotel
More than 150 years ago the Hotel Brückenwirt in St. Johann im Pongau was built as a local tavern and pub. In 1933 the grandparents of your hostess Petra Nocker-Schwarzenbacher, who lived in the nearby village of Goldegg, decided to buy the tavern Brückenwirt and to move to St. Johann. Then, a small agricultural business was part of the Brückenwirt tavern.
Diligence and hospitality are the hallmarks of the owning family of the tavern. The Brückenwirt pub quickly became a popular venue for balls and weddings and the centre of social life of the locals.
After the crisis caused by World War II, the host family at the Brückenwirt tavern were able to take advantage of the economic boom of the 1950’s. Back then rooms with running water and central heating were considered the peak of modernity Of course, there are very different standards today – as all rooms at the Hotel Brückenwirt come with internet access for example.
Today the Hotel Brückenwirt is a large, prosperous business which will enchant its guests. At the end of the 1990’s the ”Nocker's Fit & Fun“ opened its gates. The ”rustic style“ apartments and holiday homes radiate in new splendour.
