THE HISTORY OF THE "krone" is SYNONYMOUS WITH THE HISTORY OF OUR FAMILY
Our mother and grandmother Maria Rhomberg played a leading role in this history. In spite of being widowed with two small childern, it was she who took on the development of the Krone, previously a simple inn, into a guest-house with a few rooms. In the opinion of granddaughter Bettina: „I was really impressed by what my grandma did. In those days, for a woman on her own to build and run a guest-house: that was really unusual.“
Maria Rhomberg arranged things so well that she was soon able to extend the guest-house. Initially her two sons helped out in the kitchen. But gradually Thomas Rhomberg began to participate increasingly in the running of the hotel, and helped build up its tradition of hospitality.

The family of Thomas Rhomberg takes over the exclusive running of Hotel Krone
Thomas, together with his wife Christine and their daughter Bettina, undertakes a landmark move in the history of the Krone Hotel: the addition of a conservatory.

sees the complete renovation of the restaurant. The removal of the partitioning walls makes the restaurant appear more spacious, and the generous use of pale wood and mirrors results in the room being open and full of light. The modern facilities, combined with memories of bygone times, reflect the hotel’s long family tradition. Guests can now enjoy a great culinary experience in a welcoming modern ambience.
23 existing rooms are removed and replaced by 48 new air conditioned rooms built using state-of-the-art construction techniques.
