History

The hotel Feinschmeck is one of the oldest properties in Zell am See. Its history dates back more than 500 years. Since 1606 there have only been 16 different owners of the house.

Historically, the house was a “Weinmesserhaus”. From here salt was transported to Italy and wine was brought back from the south across the mountains, the “Hohe Tauern”. The “Weinmesser” controlled the import of the wine and collected the taxes.
In 1900 the family Schandlbauer, from the guesthouse “Lebzelter” across the road, bought the “Weinmesserhaus” and openend the café “Feinschmeck” in it. In 1978 the family Prodinger bought the property and initiated several renovations and reconstructions. Since 2006 the family Vorobiev are the owners of the house. During the past years the adjacent apartment building, the Havana bar and the spa area were completed. The building is being renovated on a regular basis without losing the historical and original atmosphere that makes the house so special.
