Our History

The Hotel Kindler is the oldest hotel at the main square in Leoben. Already in Napoleon’s time it became an institution as Gasthof Kindler. The hotel has been owned by the Krempl family since 1899, but the name Kindler has always been retained for reasons of tradition. In order to meet all modern requirements, the hotel has been continuously renovated. In 1955, the three-storey part of the hotel was built in the typical style of those years, the second front retained the exterior facade of the 19th century. In the interior, the rooms were continuously adapted to the current state. The last partial renovation was carried out in early 2022.

Due to the well-deserved retirement of the owner Berta Krempl in 2022, the company was looking for a solution that would ensure the continuity of the traditional business. This solution was found with the takeover by Hotel Kongress, also located in the center of Leoben. Since May 2022, the teams of the two hotels have now been working together to continue the history of Hotel Kindler. Since then, the addition 2.0 has stood for modernization under the motto “Become Digital, Stay Human”.
