Dear Friends and Guest,
it is surely a godsend that as I approach 85 I am able to look back on so many wonderful years as a hostess. We have grown older together, friendships have developed and we have seen the children of our guests grow up and come back to spend their holidays here with their own children.
We opened our guesthouse in the summer of 1977 and in the course of more than 40 years we have made alterations, extended and renovated our accommodation. We have always endeavoured to provide memorable holidays and up to date comfort for our guests. In all these years it was with great joy and enthusiasm that I was your hostess and it is not easy for me now to inform you that I will close the guesthouse with breakfast service after the winter season 2020. I simply no longer have the strength and resilience to meet all the requirements that a house full of guests involves.
Some of the rooms on the first floor will be converted to another holiday apartment and if all goes according to plan then three comfortable holiday apartments will be available from summer 2020, or autumn at the latest. You will find the information in due course on our homepage at
I should like to take this opportunity to thank all my guests for their loyalty over the years with all my heart. If you are spending your winter holiday with us in the next weeks, then you will enjoy once more our proverbial Zillertal hospitality.
I look forward to seeing again many dear guests if and when you come again to rent our holiday apartments in our - and your -Guesthouse Maria Dornauer.
Once again, many thanks for your loyalty over the years and I wish you many years of good health.
With heartfelt greetings from Mayrhofen
Maria Dornauer with daughter Annelies
