The Gasthof Zur goldenen Stiege has a long tradition. The front panel next to the entrance with the coat of arms of our house is the evidence. The greeting from long bygone times is: “Michael Pürckhel, Khürch Her, has bought this house with his own money and rebuilt it. Anno Domini 1060.”

Historical Panel

Since then, the building has always been a tavern. 1780 it got its final name “Zur goldenen Stiege”, as there were at that time only “Stiegen” (footpathes) instead of streets.

As of 1907, the guesthouse is owned by the Bernhofer family. The coat of arms is described as follows: “The Bernhofers are an old, respected gender and come originally from Styria where the same were resident  already in 1375, through several generations.”
