Aktivhotel Gasteiner Einkehr: Your Hotel in Gastein Valley

Be a guest of the Fankhauser family in Dorfgastein

For over 60 years, the Gasteiner Einkehr has been a popular vacation destination for guests coming to Gastein to ski or hike.

The original Berglift Stüberl, which was a small snack bar, was transformed in 1969 into the Schihäusl with 3 guest rooms and 1 dining room.

In 1980, the family of Christine and Gustl Fankhauser took over the Schihäusl, expanding their establishment to 10 guest rooms – the Gasteiner Einkehr was created.

The years passed and the Fankhauser family decided to remodel the small country inn, ultimately opening in spring 2007 their ****Aktivhotel Gasteiner Einkehr.

In autumn 2013, Robert, the second-born son, took over the family business. The hotel has been modernized from year to year and a bigger renovation was made in spring 2017.
On the south-east side, in the basement the wellness area was expanded, a new hotel bar and lounge area was added, the restaurant was enlarged and some rooms were renovated.

The Fankhauser family runs their hotel with boundless love and hard work. You will always find them somewhere in the hotel, creating for their guests a comfortable home-away-from-home in Gastein Valley.

We, the Fankhauser family, are introducing ourselves …

Robert, runs the business of the house. He works a lot and helps wherever it is needed. As a trained cook chef, he likes to work in the kitchen, takes care of all repairs in the hotel and takes care of the organizational matters. In addition, he is a certified hiking guide, insuring guests are absolutely safe out on the mountain with him. His great passion is skiing, for which he sometimes also takes a break and enjoys the perfect slopes in Gastein Valley.

His wife Elisabeth looks after the reception and the guests’ wishes and does the bookkeeping. In her free time she likes to be out in the fresh air and in the Gastein mountains, loves to collect herbs and make natural products from them.

Grandpa Gustl, senior chef, supports us with many tasks in the hotel. For more than 30 years he has been hiking with the guests to the most beautiful places in the Gastein Valley, is a certified hiking guide and is still in top shape. In the evening he always likes to take time for a social gathering with them. One of his hobbies is cycling – preferably sporty on an e-bike.
Grandma Christine unfortunately passed away on 24.08.2023 after a serious illness – we are all very sad and miss her very much.

The greatest joy we have with our children, our 3-girls house:

Anna, our eldest is 19 years young , trained elementary teacher, and works with much joy and wholeheartedly in the kindergarten. In her free time, she loves to ride her mountain bike to the alpine pastures, go hiking with her dad or friends or bake the most beautiful cakes.

Maria is 18 years old and still goes to school. She attends the “Elisabethinum” in St. Johann, a higher educational institution for economic professions and finishes with the Matura (Abitur). Maria is very musical and has been playing the “Steirische Harmonika” perfectly for many years.

Sophie, 14 years old, attends the tourism school in Bad Hofgastein. In summer she likes to play tennis and her “winter hobbies” are skiing and cross-country skiing.

The Fankhauser family are particularly proud of their loyal, hard-working team – a team that constantly strives, with a true sense of heartfelt hospitality, to meet their guests’ every wish.

We, the Fankhauser family and the Einkehr team, look forward to welcoming you to our family-run ****Aktivhotel Gasteiner Einkehr and giving you the pampering you deserve, allowing you to turn your well-earned vacation into something truly special.
