1964 Hotel Kohlmayr was built by its owner Helmut Kohlmayr. Even back then, it was one of the top addresses in Obertauern. Nicknamed: the Rose of Obertauern. In those days, the town was still a very busy summer destination and the hotel was also a popular choice for guests in the summer months.

2007 After having to cope with major family challenges, the business was bought by the group known today as “Kohlmayr Buam”. Four friends with very different professional experience, but who all shared a common vision: DAS KOHLMAYR should always be a house filled with happy people. They brought new life and energy to the hotel, investing enormous personal energy, courage, dedication and trust. The first years certainly weren’t easy since very few changes had been made for many years previously.

2008 The first major remodeling work began. Since then, over the years the entire hotel has been renovated and upgraded with attention to every little detail. 

2009 The owners now got serious with the “old” Kohlmayr, renovating the very heart of the hotel, the kitchen and the reception area. From this point on, there was never any doubt that the Kohlmayr would always offer its guests “something truly special”.

2010 The Panorama Restaurant with view of the waterfall was completely reconceived and remodeled.

2011 Upon conclusion of winter season, the hotel bar was refurbished with high quality antique woods as well as tasteful interior design. This place of encounter continues to be a popular gathering spot for guests.

Winter 2010/2011 You know the yellow building behind our hotel? That’s the Stewaeg Haus run by Rosi Bogensperger. Once rented out to guests, it now provides lodgings for our employees.

2012 This summer, all of our 400-numbered rooms were essentially gutted and refurbished with tasteful antique woods in combination with modern elements: Tradition meets Alpine lifestyle! Of course, a new coat of paint never hurts either. Das Kohlmayr now also boasts a new exterior façade, with the color scheme having changed from green to red .

2013 The new guest lift was installed.

2014 Our guests are greeted by an indoor pool, saunas as well as relaxation area in a whole new look.

2015 This year sees additional major additions and remodeling work. The roofing was raised in order to create an additional floor. A total of 12 new rooms and suites were added on the third floor, as were 6 rooms on the second floor. With a refined Alpine lifestyle contributing the finishing touches. Our cozy Genuss Lounge exiting onto the terrace was expanded and redesigned. A roof was installed over the entrance area as well as over the path leading to the garage.

2016 Now it was time to give the 500-numbered rooms on the second sub-level a makeover. We created additional wonderfully furnished and expanded rooms there. The ski cellar was likewise completely renovated, with secure ski lockers created for every room. From this point on, lost skis became a thing of the past and guests could always count on warm, dry ski boots.

2017 In this summer, the Kohlmayr construction site was unusually big. The first floor as well as the rest of the rooms on the second floor were completely modernized and expanded. All of the stairwells and access ways to the rooms were redesigned. We are currently able to offer 54 rooms and suites. The exterior is once again radiant, in natural mud tones. An adjacent building was constructed, connected with the existing wellness area. We are now able to offer an inviting refreshment zone with drinks, tea and Tauern spring water. A staircase leads to the new Panorama Sauna and quiet zone, reserved exclusively for adults. The outdoor area, hanging swings and waterbeds with panoramic windows invite you to stretch out, relax and enjoy. In the same building, we also created DAS GENUSSWERK. A small-yet-stylish bar area that is very popular both when the snow is blowing outside and in radiant sunshine. Beyond that, we built a wonderful terrace with fantastic vistas of the Hohe Tauern peaks.

2017 In December, DAS KOHLMAYR was rewarded for all of the developments and improvements we had made, receiving a 4-Star-Superior rating! We are very proud of ourselves and of you, our cherished guests! Thank you so much for the trust you have placed in us and for allowing us to make your holidays something truly special.

Summer 2018 We’re still far from done… The restaurant with buffet area is being expanded, remodeled and perfected. Our guests can now choose between Restaurant Zehnerkar and Restaurant Seekarspitz. Regardless of which you choose, you can count on enjoying unforgettable views of the nearby mountains. A walk-in and optimally chilled wine cabinet with a cozy oak table invites you to stop by, chat and taste.
