Already back then the "Tausendundeinsassas" were at work....

As early as the 15th century, the Greierhube already existed on the site where today the Kirchheimerhof sits enthroned on the high plateau above the roofs of Bad Kleinkirchheim.

Formerly known as "im Kray", meaning "with those at the side", the house was very popular for its incredible views at that time.

What began centuries ago at this wonderful spot on the edge of the Nockberge mountains, Elli and Otto Hinteregger shifted into the focus of Bad Kleinkirchheim's tourism activities in 1960. It was that auspicious year when the Hinteregger family bought the Greierhube, marking the birth of the present Kirchheimerhof. Elli, a skilled cook and confectioner, and Otto, a passionate landlord.

A perfect mélange that has been providing genuine hospitality to this day. Elli and Otto Hinteregger laid the foundation for a family tradition of values which its descendants have build on with hard work and enthusiasm.

The brothers Gerald and Wolfgang introduced many innovations and carried out expansions from 1985 on. The result is the gourmet and family hotel known for its attention to detail and harmonious style.

Since 2003, Gerald and his wife Sigrun have been running the Kirchheimerhof. 
And the next generation of the Hinteregger family of hoteliers is getting ready. 
After having graduated from the Salzburg/Bramberg college as certified tourism professionals, both daughter Anna and son Moritz are already fully involved in the family’s hotel business.
