In the Metzgerwirt building, in 1416 there were the writing rooms in the mine and melting works.
In 1658 it was also listed in documents as a butchery and meat hall.
In 1760 the smelting works burned down and were not re-built.
In 1805 the mine was closed.
After a chequered history, with many owners and leaseholders, in 1935 the inn and butchery which was on the brink of ruin was purchased by Josef Simair.
"If I had have looked at the roof, I certainly wouldn’t have bought it.
Everyone said I was crazy buying such a hovel ".
In 1947/50 the Metzgerwirt was re-built.
In 1967 Josef Simair handed over the business to his son Christian, saying:
"I’ll say one thing, it won’t be long until tourism takes off”
Christian expanded and modernised the building in 1969 and 1973 and closed down the butchery, setting up a hospitality business.
After additional small renovation work, in 1989 purchased the neighbouring Erich Miksch hotel, a guesthouse which had 40 beds.
In 1990 both buildings were adjoined using a central section, extensively refurbished and provided with numerous facilities to see to the welfare of its guests. In 2000 his son, Christian jun. take over the business and manages with a great deal of care and attention, providing a great deal of time for his guests.
