Hirschen Schwarzenberg, Bregenzerwald
Enjoy the beauty of Vorarlberg. Enjoy the exquisite ambiance. Enjoy the best wines. Enjoy the magnificent hotel & restaurant Gasthof Hirschen Schwarzenberg. Schwarzenberg is a village in the Bregenzerwald, whose centre is actually protected as an historic landmark. Around the church, you will find beautifully preserved examples of alemannic-rural wooden architecture. One of the villages’ most beautiful houses is our very own hotel & restaurant Gasthof Hirschen. Since 1975 – when it was still a simple village inn – it has been remodelled step-by step into a 4-star hotel accompanied by the adjacent “Wälderhaus”.
And since 2006, we are also members of the Historic Hotels of Europe. The hotel has a long tradition, extending back to the year it was built, in 1601. By the middle of the 19th century, it was already so famous that the likes of King Max II of Bavaria and poet, Eduard Mörike, counted themselves amongst the guests of the Hirschen.
Rural baroque & alpine pastures
The main house, built in the style of the rural baroque with inter-knitted timberwork, offers a warm and cosy atmosphere in its dining rooms, exquisite cuisine with a clear regional character, a banquet hall and a comfortable fireside room. Taken together, the two houses offer over 36 rooms and 70 beds. Our offer includes singles, doubles, apartments and a suite. Our wine cellar offers select European vintages, with a strong emphasis on Austrian labels. Each room is individually appointed with artworks and wooden antiques, and each one has its own story to tell. The rooms have been given the names of famous personalities who have stayed in the hotel, and artists who had or have close ties: From Angelika Kauffmann, niece of former owner of the Hirschen, Joseph Anton Metzler, to Franz Michael Felder and other prominent Vorarlberg artists of the present, such as Paul Renner, Margit Nosko and Harry Metzler. The Hirschen also owns the “Alpe Rothenbach”, an area of alpine pastures complete with its own hut. Once guests have hiked out there, they can partake of fresh bread, milk and cheese.
Whether you want to enjoy the high moors and scents of hay in summer, or get your fill of skiing and tobogganing in winter, or if you wish to host a conference in our all-wood “Wälderhaus” with its sauna and underground parking garage. Here with us, you will be able to discover re-energizing tranquillity amid a natural setting, cultural stimulation and the ideal ambiance for concentrated work.
