Dear St. Johans, dear guests!

Our trade is in a state of change and one begins (once again) to analyze efficiency and meaningfulness. Energy prices are an issue for all of us at the moment, good and regional goods should still inspire the inn guests and above all, all this should be done with a cheerful and enthusiastic team. These employees are no longer a matter of course today and our focus at this time is primarily on them.

The Hotel & Wirtshaus Post is right in the center of a wonderful region. So it is that many guests leave on Sunday and Sunday is the quietest day in the center.

We have therefore decided to keep our Wirtshaus (as already our Postmarkt and Postbar) closed on Sunday in the future, from 10thn July on. Of course we are also available for individual events on Sunday - please just ask.

The hotel is still available 365 days a year with breakfast. This decision is for the benefit of our staff and to ensure that our guests are cooked, served and delighted by well-trained & happy staff from Monday to Saturday.

We look forward to welcoming you on these days and are confident that we have set the right course for the future.

With kind regards

Sigi & Max Blumschein

 

 
 
 
 

History of our traditional hotel in Tyrol

From Rössl to Post

The Hotel & Wirtshaus Post has already witnessed a lot of things and doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon. It is our utmost pleasure to introduce you to a brief excerpt from the history of our traditional hotel in Tyrol.

The hotel has been shaping the cityscape of St. Johann since 1297, although then it was known as “Weisses Rössl”.

In 1770 a postal station was built in the “Weisses Rössl”. As a result, the name "Zur Post" became increasingly common. Due to its location, St. Johann assumed an important transit role back in the day because many soldiers, travellers and important people of the Austro-Hungarian monarchy came to the post office or spent the night at the hotel.

Important owners of the Hotel & Wirtshaus Post:

  • Family Voglsanger (1727) – 5 of the 7 children were also active in the hotel and brewing industry
  • Sebastian Schlechter – he additionally purchased the Stanglwirt in Going in 1833
  • Postwirtin Magdalena Gassner – she was probably one of the most charismatic women in the village

The Egger group purchased the hotel, and generously renovated and extended it in 2014. In addition, the Postmarkt was opened, which was a great plus for the village.

Since May of 2016 Sigrid and Maximilian Blumschein have been managing the highly traditional yet urban house. Both are passionate hosts and come from Bad Gastein. Their paths have lead them to St. Johann in Tirol and the Hotel & Wirtshaus Post, and they have tackled the new challenge with full panache.

Stop by and see for yourself the new ideas and the personal “Blumschein” stamp that has now been given to this traditional hotel in Tyrol.

Enjoy your holidays in our Hotel ...
