The Swans

Biohotel Schwanen Gastgeber

Antonia and Wolfgang and their children Emanuel and Franziska. We call ourselves the SCHWANEN. The SCHWANEN is the epitome of daily life and work for us. It has been family owned for 5 generations. We are very proud of that!

NEXT STEPS IN THE

SCHWANEN STORY

My mother Antonia, the Wilde Weib and my father Wolfgang, the good soul of the house, will be taking a step back in the future and undertake new roles in the background. Head Chef Michael Ebendorfer, Franziska Hiller, all other employees and I as host accept the challenge and will power ahead – just as we do in the SCHWANEN.

Vollgas haben auch schon meine Vorfahren gegeben: die Bregenzerwälder Käsgrafen, von denen wir Moosbruggers abstammen. Die Käsgrafen waren die Brüder Moosbrugger – Gallus, Josef Ambros und Leopold. Sie mischten im 19. Jahrhundert den Bregenzerwald so richtig auf. Von Schnepfau aus handelten sie in der gesamten österreichisch-ungarischen Monarchie mit Käse. Auf ihren Rückfuhren brachten die Käsehändler Lebensmittel, Stoffe, Gewürze und italienischen Wein für den SCHWANEN mit. Das Imperium reichte bis nach Mailand, wo die Käsgrafen einen Käseimport und eine Fabrik betrieben. Man hatte sogar eine Loge in der Mailänder Scala.

Only a dedicated commitment to contemporary architectural qualities beyond clichés can promise authentic solutions with a future.

The SCHWANEN has an eventful history behind it! When I see the old photos of this typical country inn with a farm, I wish we could have it back. Since then it hasn’t always been so great. In the 1960’s the house was turned into a rustic block, which had nothing to do with the traditions of Bizau.

When my parents undertook necessary renovations in 2009, we had the chance to redesign the hotel with Hermann Kaufmann, the hotel’s architect, and to re-integrate it into the language of the local surroundings, as he very aptly puts it. The design is deliberately restrained and is dominated by calm surfaces of natural and elegantly finished silver fir as well as beds and floors of oiled oak. I feel really at home in the SCHWANEN and am looking forward to developing this project further.
