The Baumkirchners – your hosts with heart
The building at Marktplatz number 9 – the "sand house" – was first mentioned in the Altheim
I'm Barbara Baumkirchner and have run the business together with my mother since 2009!land register in the 16th century. My parents, Johanna and Josef Baumkirchner, began to turn the house into a restaurant and hotel over 34 years ago. At first there were 30 beds. Thanks to my father, an experienced joiner who has dedicated himself to our family operation, we now proudly run a hotel operation with 100 beds.
I completed my studies at the tourism school in Bad Leonfelden. After a few years of travelling, I met Robert Pölzl in Salzburg. By expressing my love for the Innviertel, I managed to bring the Styrian stalwart to the area. In the hotel, I’m really a “maid of all work” and deal with the kitchen, service, reception and the office. We're also proud of our three wonderful children Anna-Joy, Marie-Jolie and Max Robert. When Robert isn't working for us and looking after our guests, he is a passionate barkeeper, serving up his cocktails to national and international guests.
Without my parents, however, our family operation could not function. My mother Johanna tackles service and the kitchen with enthusiasm, and above all enjoys her job as a 5-time grandmother to the fullest. My papa Josef is 100% a host, grandpa and a "jack of all trades"! Whether in service or as shuttle bus driver, we can always count on him. All 5 grandchildren love to spend time with their grandma and grandpa!
But since I started running the business with my mother, he has made renovating, updating and taking care of the hotel facilities one of his chief concerns. He is a tinkerer and craftsman who has created many things with his own hands.
To make our family complete, my sister Silvia works with us as well. She has two dear children: Hanna and Moritz. Silvia is an outstanding cook who conjures hearty dishes onto our guests' plates!
So there's always something going on here! We enjoy our family life in the heart of our pride and joy, the restaurant and hotel.
So you can be sure that with us the name Baumkirchner isn't just found on the sign. There are also a lot of Baumkirchners inside. ;-)
