THE SWANS

Antonia and Wolfgang and their children Emanuel and Franziska. We call ourselves THE SCHWANEN. For us, the SCHWANEN is the epitome of daily life and work. For 5 generations the traditional house has been family owned. We are very proud of that!

NEXT STEPS IN THE SCHWANEN STORY

My mother Antonia, the Wild Woman, and my father Wolfgang, the good soul of the house, will take a step back in the future and take on new tasks in the background. Chef Michael Webendorfer, Franziska Hiller, all the other employees and I as host accept the challenge and give full throttle - just as it is our way in the SCHWANEN.
My ancestors also gave full throttle: the Bregenzerwald Käsgrafen, from whom we Moosbruggers are descended. The Käsgrafen were the Moosbrugger brothers - Gallus, Josef Ambros and Leopold. They really stirred up the Bregenzerwald in the 19th century. From Schnepfau they traded cheese throughout the entire Austro-Hungarian monarchy. On their return trips, the cheese traders brought back foodstuffs, fabrics, spices and Italian wine for the SCHWANEN. The empire reached as far as Milan, where the Cheese Counts ran a cheese import and factory. They even had a box in the Scala of Milan.

Only committed engagement with contemporary architectural qualities beyond clichés promises authentic solutions with a future.

Hermann Kaufmann, Architect

The SCHWANEN has an eventful history behind it! When I see the old photos of this typical country inn with agriculture, I wish to have exactly that again. In the meantime it was not so sparkling. In the 1960s, the house became a rustic solid construction, which had nothing to do with the tradition of Bizau, neither from the design nor from the materials.

When my parents embarked on the necessary renovation in 2009, we had the chance to reinterpret the hotel with our house architect Hermann Kaufmann and to reintegrate it into the language of the place, as he very aptly puts it. The design is deliberately restrained and dominated by calm surfaces of natural, nobly finished silver fir as well as beds and floors of oiled oak. I feel really comfortable in the SCHWANEN and am looking forward to developing this project further.
