Family run hotel: Der Kaiserhof in Ried im Innkreis

Looking at the history of the traditionally run hotel

Der Kaiserhof – the first address in Ried: the word “first” is not only related to the leading quality and the fact that the hotel is the first and oldest 4-star hotel of the city, but it is also a nod to the central but still quiet location of the business. Behind the hotel is a long tradition, a time full of change and evolution: We would love to give you an understanding of the history of our hotel.

Out of the chronicles of the hotel Der Kaiserhof in Ried...

The first known historical entry about the Kaiserhof Ried is from the year 1678: “The allodial property Froschau, in front of the shepherd's gate, with house, barn, stables, cart-house, herb garden and orchard" How this “Froschau country estate” came to be is not entirely known yet. It doesn’t show up in older documents, which is why it was probably founded in the 16th century. The garden, fishery and stream, known as the “Froschau”, is mentioned as early as 1593.

1783 a new “residential building and inn with a completely new cellar below it” was built. 1929 Count Arco sold the building to the “Österreichische Brau-AG", the Austrian brewery company. 1939 the business was purchased by Mayer Max and Katharina, born Brunnhuber. In the year 1968 the nephew of Katharina Mayer and grandfather of the current owner inherited the inn “Gasthof zur Stadt Ried”. This inn was then converted into a hotel by the grandparents of the current owner.

The current hostess of the hotel Der Kaiserhof, Elisabeth Poringer, took over the “Hotel Kaiser” in the year 2002 from her grandfather Anton Kaiser. The hotel was reopened under the new name “Der Kaiserhof” after an initial conversion phase and is now a four-star-business with a rented-out restaurant. Then the guest rooms were renewed and are being modernized to this day.

…and what happened in the hotel Der Kaiserhof in recent times

In the last 15 years there were more milestones that lead to the modern 4-star-hotel in Ried: in 2007 the hotel acquired a little wellness area with a sauna, an infrared sauna and fitness equipment, 2015 there was the addition of a conference area and the rebuilding of the parking space entrance. In 2016 21 rooms were renovated and a new barrier-free lift was built.

Through the constant efforts to get better and better our hotel Der Kaiserhof turned into a model company that is mostly recognized by one thing: the lived hospitality and unconditional warmth paired with the highest first-class service. Find out what it means to expect an abundance of attention and service throughout your whole stay. That is the standard we in the hotel Der Kaiserhof hold ourselves to.
