HOTEL HISTORY


 

THE HISTORY OF AN EXCEPTIONAL PLACE
or how a town wall turned into a town hotel …

The Founder
Hotel Innsbruck was built by Johann Ischia on the foundations of the former town wall. Exclusivity and tradition unite to an experience with a difference that is filled with modern life and history at the same time.

The Origins
of today‘s Hotel Innsbruck date back to Josefa and Johann Ischia (1870-1930). After WWI the couple Ischia founded a business that was soon to be very successful and lucrative. They bought the traditional guesthouse Roter Adler and restored it to a modern hotel business.
Later on the house was managed by their daughter Dora and her son Johann Ischia jun. In 1974 the building works for today’s Hotel Innsbruck started, a project that was pursued by Johann Ischia jun. with a lot of personal commitment.

Innovatios
The Ischia family has proved its entrepreneurial spirit, its vision and innovative power over generations. Already at “Roter Adler” guesthouse they had the first lift of Innsbruck installed – a novelty that caused quite a stir in the region at the time.

Right from the start Johann Ischia and his wife Margit made Hotel Innsbruck one of the most modern houses of the town. The integration of an indoor pool, a large sauna and a private underground garage set new standards for the Innsbruck hotel businesses. Every since then it has been a matter of course to continuously invest into the infrastructure and extension of the house.
