Back then, as today
Stiegl-Keller is a popular meeting place for beer lovers
At the beginning of the 19th century, the Stiegl brewery, based in Gstättengasse, lacked cool storage cellars. In 1820 the Stiegl brewery therefore acquired the building at Festungsgasse 206, and redesigned the rooms within the stone of the fortress mountain into a storage cellar. It didn't take long for beer stored in the cellar to be served in the garden above during the summer months.
In 1838 the Stiegl brewery acquired an official license for Stiegl-Keller.
The storage cellar was built in 1840 and still exists today. In 1901, under the ownership of Heinrich Kiener I, Stiegl-Keller was then rebuilt and expanded once again.
In 1925-26, the Munich architect, Franz Zell, finally gave Stiegl-Keller its present-day appearance, in line with the style of that era.
From the terrace-shaped garden and the arcades he offered his guests a wonderful view over the old town of Salzburg.
Since May 1, 2012, we, the Gassner family, have been the tenants of the traditional restaurant at the foot of the fortress mountain.
