History of your tradition-conscious 4-star Hotel GMACHL Elixhausen

A hotel with nearly 700 years of hosting experience

The Romantik Hotel GMACHL celebrated its 685th anniversary in 2019. The estate to the north-east of Salzburg that houses the 4-star-superior hotel in Elixhausen has been in family hands since 1334.

This means hotel history has been made in Elixhausen for nearly 700 years. Today the Romantik Hotel GMACHL is run by the 23rd generation, namely the Gmachl family. Every generation implemented innovations and contributed to the success of the hotel, thereby ensuring that you can now experience a family-run business of the highest order in Elixhausen.

Your four-star-superior spa hotel in Salzburg – hotel tradition with a family tree

The estate on which the Romantik Hotel GMACHL was built was first documented in 1334. The first owner was a man named Georg – the family name is not known. It took until 1470 for a surname to surface: Elixhauser. Until 1740 this name stood for lively trading activities and the opening of the tavern that is the basis for the development of the hotel as we know it today. In the process, Theresia Elixhauser married restaurateur named Johann Georg Gmachl – thus the foundations for the Romantik Hotel GMACHL of today were laid.

Traditional Hotel GMACHL Salzburg – taking a long history into a tradition-conscious future

Back in 2009 the hotel experienced its most significant change under the custodianship of the Gmachl family. The four-star-superior house was expanded by a new hotel building just in time for the “675 Years GMACHL Elixhausen” festivities. It now offers its guests 73 modern and traditional rooms. At the same time the family developed the GMACHL Spa “Horizont”, which spreads out over roughly 1,500 square metres over two floors of the new building. The spa offers truly breathtaking views of the Salzburg Fortress (“Festung Hohensalzburg”) and the surrounding mountain ranges. Despite its size the Romantik Hotel GMACHL has managed to preserve its familiar flair – it successfully combines spa and comfort with a typical down-to-earth Austrian mentality.
