Our History

The proven beginnings of private catering and hostelry in Brixen date back to the 15th century. This is also the period in which our hotel was founded. The “Uetzenwirt am creutz” was already mentioned in documents in 1493.

In 1625, a major reconstruction took place: the cathedral master builder Hans Reichle created the “größere Wirtstafern am gulden Kreuz” by combining the smaller houses into a single block.

In 1718 the post station is taken over by the lords of “derer Anreiter”, is moved to the inn “Goldenes Kreuz” and remains there until 1839. After frequent changes of ownership, the inn was finally sold in 1801 to Martin Schenk, who played an important role as a friend and confidant of Andreas Hofer.

The inn gained fame through the “Schwur der Drei” (Oath of the Three), whereby on 2 August 1809 the freedom fighters Peter Mayr (innkeeper on the Mahr), Martin Schenk (Kreuzwirt) and Peter Kemenater (Sternwirt Schabs) swore unswerving loyalty to each other in the fight against Napoleon.

On 16 August 1902 the Viennese Andrä-Hofer-Verein erected a commemorative plaque with an inscription to this effect. Today the original commemorative plaque is located in the staircase of the Hotel Goldenes Kreuz.

The tavern “Roßstall” was opened around 1958 and operated as a public tavern/discotheque until around 1970. Today the tavern is exclusively available to the house guests and is used on request for Törggelen, Après-Ski or for special events.

Since 1925 the Hotel Goldenes Kreuz has been owned by the Reiserer family, now in the third and fourth generation.
