Our common history – the Gasthof zur Post and the Steinschaden family:

Familie Steinschaden/Krenn

A visit to the Gastein valley in 1989 convinced Mama Hildegard and Papa Alfred Steinschaden to open a small boarding house and inn in Gastein. The 3 children Michaela, Claudia and 10 year old Markus were delighted to move from the Mühlviertel in Upper Austria to Bad Gastein.
Markus, now the boss, began his culinary training in the hotel Europäischer Hof followed by a few years with starcook Lisl Wagner Bacher. The lure of sunshine and sea took him to Mallorca, and later back to the province of Salzburg and the Strasserwirt. In 2002 Markus became the proud father of son Jan and it was a particular pleasure for him that Herr Johann Radauer, boss of the Strasserwirt, undertook the important role of becoming Jan’s godfather.

In 2003 Markus was able to take over the Restaurant zur Post and in 2008 Birgit Krenn (also from the Mühlviertel in Upper Austria) began her work as a waitress. Work turned into love and in 2013 their daughter Julia, their little sunshine, was born. In 2014 they were able to take over the Gasthof zur Post and also purchased the Apartmenthouse Post.

Family is very important to us, and therefore we treat all our guests like family members.
Arriving – feeling at home – coming back
