Around 1900 - Austria was at that time when Austria-Hungary K&K a dual monarchy - our house was built here on Lake Wolfgang in the Salzkammergut. Even then guests were entertained and offered nights at that time, because St. Gilgen was an ideal vacation spot even at this time. Famous is the traditional "Sommerfrische" of Emperor Franz Joseph and Empress Sissi in the Imperial Villa and his first festive reception in St. Gilgen on Wednesday 12 July 1893, which one since then was celebrated with the  world famous “Kaiserfest”.
