When I set eyes on this Hotel, it was wow! The outside was so pretty as it was painted with Lüftlmalerei.

Before the Hotel Post was erected in 1621, another Inn stood in its place, owned by the "Neuner" family and named "Zum Alten Wirt". Then the new Inn was built, starting out as an Inn and farm.
Evidently, inside the Old Post Tavern is a decorative collar and insignia of its builder Simon Niggl, dated 1621. When it was being built, the kitchen was installed in the vaulted cellar where a secret staircase led upwards, if you ask you may be able to see it.
The owner, Hans Neuner, senior, was a bit of a "jack of all trades," as he was the guest host, the Postmaster and the Raft master!
In 1912, the house was also a post office.
Important people to stay here were Empress Maria Theresa with her entourage and horses.

The owner of the Hotel Post today is Bernard Neuner junior who took over the Hotel Post in 2009. Since then the interior has been renovated.
The current members of the family are:
Eleonore Neuner - the old postmistress - born in 1916!
Bernhard Neuner sen -. Senior director with his wife Annette
Bernhard Neuner, Jr. -., The current "postmaster" with his wife Doris and son Sebastian
John Neuner - the host of the wine
QUITE IMPRESSIVE!

You can stay here if you wish.
