Hotel König is a traditional family business, it was founded in 1928, and now the reins have been handed to the third generation.

Gabriele and Helge decided in 2001 to rebuild the “Gasthof König” as a small business hotel with a special charm and refined, regional cuisine.
When daughter Gabriele Schmidthaler married Helge Pachner from Dietach near Steyr in 1993, daughter Eva was born in 1994, followed by Johanna and Christoph. During this time of young family life, the inn gradually opened for lunch and dinner guests, with warm service and good food.
In 1989 the inn closed the restaurant business due to the retirement of Maximilian Schmidthaler and Marianne Schmidthaler continued the overnight business with hearty meals for room guests and individual evening events.
In 1962 Maximilian Schmidthaler, from Pechgraben near Großraming, married in Kremsmünster and took over the inn with Marianne in 1968. As Gasthof Schmidthaler, the two established an inn known for excellent cuisine with two dining rooms and guest rooms, which is still a name in the history of Kremsmünster and was particularly well known as a hunter’s inn with tasty dishes.
In 1928, Johann König and Cäcilia König (born as Schweinschwaller) acquired the König inn after it had 10 different owners from 1902 to 1928. The two children Johann (*1930) and Marianne (*1937) were born.
