Unterwirt: 150 Years of History

Your Vacation in South Tyrol – Our Motto in Hotel Taubers Unterwirt

Taubers Unterwirt has been in business since 1611. In that year, Jakob Gasser served local wine to the villagers. This location, directly above the village church and next to the castle, seemed to him to be the ideal place to set up his inn. History has proven him right: The little inn survived the centuries almost unchanged. Only the innkeepers came and went. Since 1858, we Taubers have been running the Unterwirt – now for five generations.
By 1960, the building had become dilapidated, and so was torn down. In doing so, Franz Tauber set a standard for the high level of quality we’ve come to represent. Franz expanded the hotel, installed the first conference rooms in South Tyrol, began heating with solar panels in the 1980s, had renowned specialists from Vienna come to help with the planning, was heavily involved in the promotion of chestnuts, and a big supporter of the activities of the local tourist agency. Thanks to him, the Unterwirt has established an excellent reputation in South Tyrol.
After Helmut Tauber assumed charge and the whole complex was successfully renovated in 2006, our centuries of experience tell us that our investment – in customer satisfaction – was the right decision.
