Familiy Hotel Schloss Rosenegg History
The first mention dates back to 1187. The Family Hotel Schloss Rosenegg has since then stood up to the passing of time and the many vicissitudes linked to its history. Its walls have witnessed the stories and destinies of those who stayed there without leaving traces behind them.
Famous personalities such as the Countess Margarethe Maultasch or Napoleon have stayed there. From 1555 until 1760 it was the residence of the Rosenberger family.
Baron Rosenberger, a faithful friend of Nostradamus, maintained an intense correspondence with the scholar, doctor and astrologer. Baron Rosenberger also held a diplomatic role between the Habsburgs and Nostradamus and founded the Pillersee Iron and Steel Company in 1603, and thus contributed significantly to the development of Fieberbrunn.
The high quality iron produced was used for the construction of weapons. Here the legendary "Deutsche Schwert" was forged as well as all the Hapsburg and cutting weapons. The 18 year war was among other things caused by the sectarian question with the bishop of Salzburg. The Rosenberger family was forced to flee into exile in Normandy.
In 1936 the castle was transformed into a hotel and was owned by the Eberhardt family for three generations.
