Philosophy & History

Family, traditional, natural

We aim to create a place where people can draw strength and experience special moments. Every single member of our family lives out their passion and vigour to the fullest every day. Only then can we be there for each other and enrich others at the same time.
Where there’s a will, there’s a way

The foundation stone for the Hotel Edelweiss in the Salzburgerland region was laid in 1977 when Grandma and Grandpa Hettegger built a small guesthouse with fourteen rooms. The sons of their eleven children were supposed to learn a craft, a ‘proper’ job. That’s why their son Peter was not allowed to become a cook; instead he chose to be an electrician.

When Peter eventually took over his parents’ business in 1979, he also built a cosy café in the centre of the village in Grossarl/Unterberg. The wonderful cakes his wife Elisabeth made were known far and wide. A few years later, the number of beds was first increased to 70 and then to 100. In 1990, the ‘Rauchkuchl’ dance bar was added to the Edelweiss; a popular dance hall with après-ski, pizzeria and dining room.

In 1998, the Hotel Edelweiss – Salzburg Mountain Resort saw major upgrades again: the an-nexe to 240 beds and construction of the indoor pool, sauna area and the beauty and vitality residence. Little by little, Peter’s siblings and children entered the business. In 2018, Peter Jun. and his wife Karin took over running the hotel. Paying great attention to detail and being mind-ful of the previous pioneering work, they have transformed the Edelweiss into the holiday re-sort of the future.

Solidarity and trust

We have the luxury of being one big family. From generation to generation, a valuable pos-session is passed on which promises joie de vivre, solidarity and trust. We have managed to create a resort with exceptional natural materials that encompasses a unique atmosphere. Tradition and modernity blend harmoniously here.

We are confident you will feel the love and passion we have for our vocation the instant you enter our home. Everyone is actively involved, everyone brings in his or her own strengths, everyone stands in for one another. We have been taught that a little smile or a good conver-sation is often enough to make someone feel comfortable and happy.
