The Story of Refugium Lindenwirt

A farm in Drachselried near Bodenmais, located in the middle of the Bavarian Forest of Germany - this is the origin of Refugium Lindenwirt. Altogether, the hotel known today can look back on an over 60-year old history. Back then, the grandfather, Alois Geiger, led the farm with an adjoining agriculture that he registered as a hospitality industry one day. After a short time, Lindenwirt developed to a popular retreat for hikers and walkers passing by. In the following years, renovation work was done on the inn several times, in order to offer an attractive retreat possibility for excursionists.

Following the company takeover by grandson Christian Geiger in 2002, small reconstruction work was done again. But in 2008, Christian and his wife Maria decided to close the family and wellness hotel for the interim and let it undergo a complete renovation and addition process. Thereby, Christian and Maria realized their own dream, to present their guests a modern offer on high and at the same time sustainable standard und match their business to the growing expectations of the high-class hotel industry. During redevelopment and also concerning architecture, emphasis was laid on clear forms, close to nature colors, fine fabrics and on the use of precious, close to nature materials such as stone, lime and spruce wood. Hence, the nativeness of the Bavarian Forest und the down-to-earthness can be felt throughout all the corners of the hotel. Even today, next to their hospitable team, family Geiger personally takes care of their guests with lots of warmth. Christian Geiger also offers himself as a personal hiking guide and shows his guests the nature and relaxation scenery of the Bavarian Forest from his very own perspective.
