All about us


The Alpenhof in the Wildschönau has been family run since 1958 – we will personally take care of your every Need!

Our house was built in 1958. We took over the running ofit from our parents Franz and Anna Luchner in May 1994.

It is our aim to offer our guests a comfortable holiday home from home, to answer all your questions and to fulfill all your holiday wishes.

We are proud of the loyalty of our guests, some of whom have been spending their holidays with us in the Alpenhof for 20 years and more! Who knows, perhaps you will become one of them!

A hearty welcome from your hosts,

The Luchner Family

Here you can read an interesting excerpt from building report and the topping-out celebration by mastercarpenter Klingler:

The 9th October 1958

It’s a great day for anyone when he puts the roof on his own house.
The owners are Franz Luchner sen. and his wife Ursula, his son Franz-Josef and wife Anna.
The house was planned in winter 1957 by Luchner jun. and the excavation work began immediately with pick and shovel.

After 2 months hard work the foundations were laid.
In the following summer the cellar and the ground floor were built and the building left to stand over the winter. Work continued in summer.

Father and son did all the bricklaying work themselves as both senior and junior are trained builders and owners of their own company. The carpentry work was done by Sepp Klingler from Oberau.


Here is a pricelist of the building materials:
the 30 cm hollow stone 4.4 schillings
the 25 cm hollow stone 3.50 schillings
normal bricks 25/12/6.5 0.67 schillings
cement per sack 50 kg 25.00 schillings

We have a good life nowadays with enough work so that a worker can earn a decent wage.

A bricklayer earns 9 schillings an hour, a handyman 7.50 schillings
A litre of milk costs 2.2 schillings and a 1 kg loaf 3.80 schillings

We should not forget to thank the Lord for his blessings and his protection so that no accidents or injury occurred.


The house is built as a tourist hostel and we wish the inhabitants happy holidays here.
