Family chronicle Brückenwirt

The Brückenwirt in Heinfels near Sillian has been family owned for over 150 years. The history of the “Brückenwirt”(=host at the bridge) reaches back to the year 1868. In the year 1969, the previously called Guesthouse „Oberthaler“ changed its name to „Brückenwirt“. The name refers tot he close bridge „Punbrugge“ at the river of Villgraten (Prugge=Brücke=bridge).

Originally an in-house butcher’s shop and a small farm were operated in this tradition-conscious house. The inn at the entrance to Villgratental was an important accommodation facility for carters and commercial travelers to Lienz and Italy. 1963 Gertrud (born Oberthaler) and Heribert Pichler took over the property. During many years, they renovated the building with much love and ambition. However, right before completing the big renovating project, the old building was hardly hit by a flood during the flood disaster taking place in 1966. Due to the heavy rains of 17 August the Villgraterbach flooded the basement of the building.

After unsuccessful remediation measures of the old homestead the new house was built in 1967. Gertrud and Heribert Pichler have created with a lot of diligence and love, a traditional company ..

With the heredity to the family’s next generation, the Brückenwirt kept developing and the new owners adapted it to present needs.

Revitalization Brückenwirt 2014

2014 the Brückenwirt was completely renovated, revitalized and reopened in autumn 2014. The rooms were converted into high-quality apartments. Each apartment has access to at least one balcony with uninterrupted views east toward Lienz, south to the Carnic Alps or west. Each apartment has its own personal touch.
