The History

The Bayrischer Hof inn since 1949

The Inn Bayrischer Hof was bought in 1948 by Ignaz and Johanna Platzer (the current owner's grandparents, KR Helmut Platzer) and opened on 12 April 1949 by Stephanie and Rudolf Platzer after numerous renovations. At the beginning, the focus was on preparing food and drinks, so the accommodation became more and more important over time. In 1972, the addition of a stretch of housing was inevitable and therefore also a significant change in the direction of the hotel's future as a hotel. In 1984 and 1989 the penthouse was enlarged and the Bayrischer Hof received its 3 stars. Due to constant renovation and modernization, the Bayrischer Hof has developed into 50 rooms and a first-class hotel with around 90 beds.

Helmut and Helene Platzer bought the neighbouring house of the Charwat family in 2004 and transformed this city-style house into a new four-star hotel. Named after his daughter, the 4-star Hotel Alexandra has 23 rooms and since March 2005 has been a reference point for Wels' active hotel industry.

While in 1981 nine employees were employed, 18 employees and 2 apprentices are already working for the company. Even today, the two hotel businesses of KR Helmut Platzer and his daughter Alexandra Platzer have continued and kept up-to-date with constant adaptations, expansions and modern conversions.


Currently, both hotels have awarded the 3 stars Hotel Bayrischer Hof and the 4 stars Hotel Alexandra the "We are Climate Alliance" and "Austrian eco-labels for tourism businesses".

The Platzer family would like to consciously build on sustainability and regionalism and set an example through targeted energy-efficient measures and improvements as well as social responsibility. Especially through regional purchasing, careful handling of goods and goods as well as with a lot of personal commitment, interest and dedication, a significant contribution to climate protection should be made.

"The Viennese Schnitzel is still a hit with local and international guests," says KultiWirt Helmut Platzer. "But we also like to offer classics such as pork chop and spareribs to represent our Austrian cuisine."

The extension of the menu to the best Austrian premium beef steaks was also a complete success. However, for the Platzer family, this includes cooperation with regional suppliers and the use of seasonal products. If you are looking for a different kind of restaurant visit, then Bayrischer Hof is also the place for you, because in the cosy garden a grilled Grillkota can be grilled "all year round" and made of extraordinary wooden tankard beer be drunk.
