Built and first mentioned in a document in the 15th century, the house was used as a theatre for the salt-producing family Wolfen. Our house is situated in an alleyway that is still named Wolfengasse. After the Wolfen stopped the trade of salt, the house became a restaurant. The big fire in 1750 that burned half of Hallstatt destroyed the first and the second floor of the Simony house. The vaults of the ground floor were fortunately not damaged. In 1882, the ancestors of the Scheutz-Höplinger, the Klackl family bought the building and renovated the house turning it into a hotel. Famous explorer of the Dachstein region Friedrich Simony was a regular guest in the house of the family Klackl. To his honour, the hotel was named „Simonyhütte“ which was changed into „Gasthof Simony“ later on.
This tranquil haven with its peaceful and picturesque Alpine panorama offers a spectacular view of the Hallstatt lake. You can even jump into the lake from the lawn. Furthermore, the guest house offers the use of canoes free of charge. In and around Hallstatt you can find fabulous trails for mountain biking. During the wintertime, the house and restaurant has many a cosy corner to warm up next to, after a day of sports.
Arriving by train, you take a ferry over the lake. The house is only 80m (87,5 yards) away from the station; only 50m (54,5 yards) from the hotel is the historic museum that exhibits prehistoric findings from the salt mine and the sepulchral finds of the Hallstatt period. Our house is also the starting point for beautiful hiking tours through intact Alpine flora along a timber trail. The skiing resort Dachstein West offers descents up to 11km long (12.030 yards), summer skiing on the glacier, mountain biking and countless hiking trails.
Guest house Simony look forward to welcome you as their guests.
