A significant coat of arms, women’s power and a host mentality that has spanned generations – the Obermühle 4*S Boutique Resort looks back on a long and exciting history. In some corners of the Obermühle there are even contemporary witnesses to be discovered. We span the gap between tradition and modern, homely ambience: authentic, unique, stylish.
The year is 1634 and it was to be one of the most important days for the mill owner Mathias Reiser and his Obermühle, as he received the coat of arms of the bourgeois nobility from Emperor Maximilian. That year is the foundation of the over 300 year old family tradition of the Obermühle. But the operation of a mill and a sawmill was a tedious and dangerous undertaking and tore some of the male heirs to death. It is thanks to the business acumen of the descendant Katharina Betz that you can read about the Hotel Obermühle today.
Peter Wolf and his wife Mariele brought a breath of fresh air to Obermühle. With a lot of passion and imaginative design they continued the tradition of the Obermühle. Thus Peter Wolf made a name for himself within a short time with his excellent cuisine, which was known far beyond the city limits. Prizes, recognitions and, last but not least, admission to the Chaine de Rôtisseurs followed.
Host culture in the fourth generation: Christian Wolf has taken over the concerns of Obermühle in 2013 and masters the balancing act between longstanding tradition and today’s demands. The appearance of Obermühle has often changed, not least due to the extensive renovation work in 2013, 2015 and 2017.
The Obermühle did undergo the most extensive conversion of all times. 47 new rooms, an exclusive wellness area with infinity pool, conference and seminar facilities and an extension of all public areas. The Obermühle was closed for approx. 6 months in order to be able to carry out this conversion work as soon as possible.
