THE HISTORY OF 300 YEARS TRADITION
Our 4 stars hotel is situated in the heart of the historical town Steyr, with view to one of the most beautiful town squares of Europe.
The town reaches its commercial peak and during this period our house was built.
The beginning of the thirty year´s war and the farmers war caused the downfall of Steyr. One of the owners of the house, a Protestant, had been quartert on the townsquare.
The „Gastgebsgerechtigkeit“ was accorded to Mr. Johann Altwirth and so he was permitted to serve food and drinks to the Steyr citizens and travellers.
The todays basic structure of the house had been built at the beginning of the Renaissance period, at the 16 century. Since then guests are welcome and entertained in our hotel.
Franz Schubert spent some time in Steyr during the summer months and, in our opinion, already appreciated “our” hospidality. The beauty of the town inspired him to compose the piano sonata in A major key and also the famous Trout-Quintet shall be the result of these beautiful summer months.
our family bought the house. The grandparents Karl and Maria Schweinschwaller guided the hotel through hard times. Right after the war they could open the restaurant only for 2 hours a day and all food was sold then.
Johann Mader sen. married Eleonore Ecker. From then the “Gasthaus zu den drei goldenen Rosen“, was “The Mader“ and had been upgraded and extended during the following 30 years.
The family bought the neighbours house (Stadtplatz 38) and the “Hotel Mader” was born, with 40 hotel rooms. The attics were developped and several rooms had been rented at the “Stalzerhaus” Nr. 34.
