The Marten

A storied hotel.

We aren’t just focused on the here and now but also look with great excitement into the future to see what it holds for our Hotel Marten. Admittedly, from time to time we do catch ourselves looking back nostalgically on the long history of our establishment.

It’s especially exciting when the father of our host Juliane begins speaking about our hotel’s early days. Then his eyes really begin to sparkle – almost like the eyes of children by the Christmas tree. Then everyone around the table pricks up their ears – not just because the attractive Salzburg dialect contains many an expression that some guests have never heard – but above all because between the lines it is possible to discern his pure passion for everything that has been built over the years.

If you really want to go back a long way, the history of our hotel began in the 18th century. It was back then that the property of “Martin” was mentioned for the first time and it was first a farm and then a master cooper’s workshop.

The passion for the mountains and for skiing, however, has been present for generations. Juliane’s grandfather was a co-founder of the Hinterglemmer Bergbahnen mountain railway company and one of the pioneers of alpine tourism. And in 1937 the first skiers were accommodated at the Marten. Having initially been established as a youth hostel for school classes, our hotel continued to evolve into a four-star establishment. Today the Hotel Marten is run by the fifth generation of the Feiersinger family, in each of whom a love of the mountains and our hotel continues to burn bright.
