It was time
for something new.

Who we are.

Dear Guests, Revered Readers,

You are currently browsing through the website of "Schlosshotels & Herrenhäuser" and I hope you sense the spirit (and spirits!) of the hand-selected houses within our group. Our hotel family was founded with the intention of underscoring the distinctive character of many individual and unique establishments and collaboratively achieving even greater radiance. Over the years, we developed into an international association of historic hotels, traditional restaurants and venerable wine estates.

With true heart and passion, every day we welcome each of our guests within our own “four”, occasionally slightly askew walls. We, your hosts, are here for you and wish to accompany you on a journey during which you are able to experience authentic tradition together with respectful innovation.

Discover our beautiful houses, often with top-flight cuisine and richly stocked cellars, seduced into relishing each and every delectable moment. At our historic and lovingly imperfect, though utterly tasteful properties, you will experience a culture of hospitality that is as personal as it is charming.

With boundless dedication and enthusiasm, we battle to preserve our cultural legacy hand-in-hand with the modern amenities of all our hotels, castles, palaces, stately homes, estates and city palais, so that you, as our guest, may enjoy exceptional service and blissful comfort in all areas.

We, the family of “Schlosshotels & Herrenhäuser”, love our wonderful houses and wish for nothing more, than that you fall in love with them too.


Franz Ladinser
on behalf of all our hosts

Franz Ladinser is Hotelier in Innichen, South Tyrol. He runs and manages together with his daughter Verena in the 9th and 10th generation the Boutique & Gourmet Hotel Orso Grigio.

Born in 1965. Reborn 2020.

Who we are? We've been out there for more than 50 years. Born in 1965, over the years we've grown into a family of 50 siblings. The latter being extraordinary historical castles, mansions and houses. For travelers and individuals that seek not only for a place to stay but rather for a place to explore, to grow and evolve. We are „Schlosshotels and Herrenhäuser“.

But as deemed necessary in many "family"-run businesses around the world, one day THE day has come. To pick and choose your most talented child. And let it transition your legacy into a new era. An era belonging to another generation. So from now on, we invite you to "Experience Character".
