The Gassner-gastronomy in Salzburg

History and tradition meets modernity!

The Gassner history – it all started back in 1993


In 1993 Mr. Josef Gassner decided with his team and the “House of Fine Catering” to cater costumers from Austria and all over the world with culinary delicacies.


1996 the company got enlarged by the “Latschenwirt”, a traditional restaurant in Salzburg, which was operated until 2008.


Since 2001 the Gassner family has been tenants of the “Gasthaus zu Schloss Hellbrunn”, which is surrounded by the picturesque area of Hellbrunn Palace and is located next to the world-famous trick fountains. In the same year, the Christmas market “Hellbrunner Adventzauber” took place for the first time. With traditional handcrafts, a huge kids area and a unique program, the “Hellbrunner Adventzauber” has become one of the most popular Christmas markets in Salzburg.


The ****Hotel & Restaurant Schlosswirt zu Anif has been a part of the Gassner family since 2008. There, the guests experience Austrian cuisine at top level and a unique ambience in Biedermeier-style.


In addition, Gassner Gastronomy ran the Casino restaurant in Klessheim Palace from 2009 to 2015.


In May 2012 Gassner took over the restaurant “Stiegl-Keller” which is settled down in the heart of Salzburg’s old town. The restaurant “Stiegl-Keller” combines traditional Austrian cuisine and brewing-culture. With its historical rooms and various capacities, the restaurant offers the ideal setting for events.


Since 2013 the Gassner family also organizes the traditional Christmas market in Glanegg, which is called the “Bauernadvent Glanegg”. The “Bauernadvent Glanegg” is an insider tip if you are interested in Christmas markets.

Further more, the Gassner company runs several more restaurant facilities in Salzburg: “WIFF” at the WIFI Salzburg and “Das ZoO” at the Salzburg Zoo. Since spring 2019 the restaurant “Salettl” at the Salzburg Open-Air Museum is also part of the Gassner Family.


With our youngest Gassner member, the restaurant “Stiegl-Klosterhof” in Linz, we are pleased to run already 2 of 5 “Stiegl” leading companies. A very special restaurant, as it is our first company outside of Salzburg.


We are looking forward to future projects.
