Since 1908 Hotel-Restaurant »Zum Schwarzen Bären« is owned by the Pritz Family.
300 years ago, in 1609, the house was named »Whärzhaus zum Schwarzen Bären«. Even today the arched ceiling of the guestroom is a visible reminder of former times when the room was used as stalls for the horses which pulled the ships up-river.
During the last 100 years, since it has been owned by the Pritz Family, this treasured country guest house at the western entrance to the World Heritage Site ‚Wachau Valley‘, has continously improved in size and quality. By now, 50 guest rooms at 4 star level (Austrian rating), five holiday apartments and a spa at a size of 400 m² are offered for leisure travellers. For seminars, meetings or corporate events, six professionally equipped meeting rooms are available.
The hotel has become quite famous, particularly for its excellent food. Today guests come from near and far to induldge in culinary delights. Here in Emmersdorf there is always a focus on down-to-earth regional specialities. Even though Chef Martin Pritz puts family tradition first, he continually makes excursions into the world of newer, lighter and more creative cooking.
With kind regards,
your Pritz Family
