It really took a long time – but we will reopen very soon.

The preparations for the reopening are complete and everything is ready for the restart. Due to the current lockdown, the opening has to be postponed one more time. If the situation improves as hoped, the Esterhammer will open its doors again on Wednesday, December 15th, 2021.

From this day on, we trustingly place the restaurant in the hands of our new tenant Werner Brugger and his family. More information will be available soon on this website.

In the meantime, here are a few details about what has been going on in the house lately:

  • Our dining rooms have been carefully restored. There will be a barrier-free access into the house and the “Zirbensaal” on the 1st floor (with elevator!), New toilet facilities, some technical updates for the kitchen and a lot of work that you hardly will notice afterwards (house technology, fire protection, etc.) have been carried out.

  • We will also set up a small museum on the first floor. The last 2 years we have had enough time to go through all the things that have accumulated in the past centuries. We have found so many interesting things that we would like to present. Ines, who has since become self-employed (see, will take this into hand.

  • There is also less good news: Until further notice, we will no longer offer hotel accommodation, only the restaurant will reopen. We are aware that this may be a shock for many of our loyal guests, but we really did not take the decision lightly. Ultimately, however, there were several reasons that led us to this cut.

We would like to say a big thank you to all of our hotel guests for their long-term loyalty. We hope that you will continue to have many wonderful memories of our house, just as we like to remember the time when you were our guest.
