Here we chat a bit from our sewing box and take you on a journey through time to the unique history of your and our second home, the Hotel Klosterbräu.

Guests say it is unique. Especially because of the unmistakable charm and the very down-to-earth Tyrolean hospitality.

We say: we love what we do and spread as much magic as possible for our guests every day.

Our history

Hotel Klosterbräu & SPA

1386 - The Host Miracle of Seefeld

Knight Oswald forces the bishop's host and sinks knee-deep into the stone floor during mass. Seefeld becomes a place of pilgrimage - tourism begins.

Hotel Klosterbräu & SPA

1516 - The builder Emperor Maximilian I founds the monastery.

This Habsburg emperor falls in love with the place called "Sevelt" while hunting and endows a monastery to accommodate the electors.

Hotel Klosterbräu & SPA

16th century - The Augustinian Order as hosts.

The monks entertained pilgrims, nobles and travellers with products from their own farm, fish farm and brewery - for 200 years.

1809 - From monastery to family business

The monastery is secularised and closed. The postman and the butcher of Seefeld purchase the entire property at auction - the host-seyrling tradition begins.

1942 - 1952 - Expropriation for the common good

The Seyrling family had to leave the monastery by 1953 because the building was needed as a hospital. The sale of forest financed the reconstruction.

2005 - The 6th generation

With a lot of cordiality and genuine hospitality, nine family members and relatives are now working in the hotel. The 7th generation is often frolicking in the hotel's children's club....

Your favourite hotel with the hosts of TODAY

For over 200 years we – your hosts, the Seyrling family – have been there for you as a strong team.

A total of 8 family members run around taking care of your well-being. Each one of us has their own strengths, which they pursue with passion and commitment.

Your hosts are as versatile and multi-faceted as your favourite hotel.

Hotel Klosterbräu & SPA
Alois & Agnes Seyrling
Managing director and host with passion.

Apart from the well-being of his two ladies Agnes (wife) and Margarita (daughter) and his son Luis, direct contact with guests is his top priority: legendary wine cellar evenings (sitting is a must!) are just as much a part of his "specialty" as sporty hikes through the Seefeld nature. Ask the regulars – these moments are unforgettable!

 

As Alois' wife and mother of Margarita and Luis, she already has her hands full, in addition to managing the Sales &Housekeeping departments. The lovingly compiled children's and family program of the Hotel Klosterbräu also springs from her pen.
An indispensable part of the Klosterbräu family.

Hotel Klosterbräu & SPA
Cristina Seyrling

She pulls the strings in the background and keeps the big Klosterbräu family together – just as it should be for a real Italian head of the family. She knows a thing or two about ambience and decoration and comes to rest during relaxing yoga sessions.

Hotel Klosterbräu & SPA
Linda Seyrling

As the wife of Alois and mother of Margarita and Luis, she already has her hands full, but she still finds time to manage the sales and housekeeping departments. She is also responsible for creating and coordinating the loving children's and family programme at Hotel Klosterbräu.

A true whirlwind and indispensable part of the Klosterbräu family.

Hotel Klosterbräu & SPA
Laura Seyrling-Rieß

Laura not only completes the three Seyrling siblings, she also manages the wellness and spa area, an important cornerstone of the Hotel Klosterbräu. She has obviously inherited the family gene from her mother Cristina and is now a mother of two children, daughter Emilia and son Elvis, and wife of Wolfgang Rieß.

Hotel Klosterbräu & SPA
Wolfgang Rieß

He loves technology, knows every nook and cranny in the Hotel Klosterbräu, and has hammered many a nail into the historic walls himself. When it comes to renovations, he is always at the forefront as head of technology.

In the area of human resources, he impresses with his knowledge and sensitivity. No talent has escaped him yet ...! As compensation he likes to bike with his guests through the Olympic region and spend relaxing hours with his family (as well as building children's swings in his own garden that you haven't seen before ;-))

Hotel Klosterbräu & SPA
Clemens Seidenberger

A real Tyrolean with a big heart. As an activity guide he takes every nature lover to the most amazing mountain peaks and most impressive natural lakes, and knows the region like no other. In a dream team with dog Benni, the likeable nature lover and cousin of the Seyrling family puts together the best tours for the guests – no matter the fitness level.

Being a host - with heart and soul

As our guests confirm, it is not easy to describe the Klosterbräu, because it is a feeling - and feelings are not easy to put into words. It is especially heart-warming when new guests realise during their first stay: You really are YOUNIQUE. Unique. Warm-hearted. Charming & down-to-earth. You can feel in the attitude and honest friendliness of the staff that there is a family business behind it - with 500 years of tradition, yet with youthful ease.

The hotel is full of lovely little things to discover and many things are even more beautiful in person than in our external presentation. "We see our profession as a true vocation and we are lucky to be able to combine our private life, our family and our passion with genuine hospitality."

We are proud of the generations before us and look to the future full of joy and confidence and with a lot of verve and drive. This is what we stand for. This is what we live for. Since 1516.
