The Hotel Alte Post breathes the history of Oberammergau. The oldest existing reference dates back to 1612, making it probably the oldest hotel in town. Coats of arms from the days of yore adorn the historic exposed-beam ceiling of our restaurant; a testimony left by the tradespeople who cherished the qualities of the “Löwe” guesthouse, as it was called back then.
The Hotel Alte Post has been owned by the Preisinger family since the end of the 19th century and is now being run by the fifth generation. In this tradition, we endeavour to make the stay as pleasant as possible for the modern guests of our distinguished hotel.
A talent for acting runs deep in the family. In the Oberammergau Passion Plays put on in 1950 and 1960, Grandfather Preisinger played Christ, the father Pilatus, and the son Judas. Here we see the three present-day Anton Preisingers during Passion 2000.
It’s a really unique place, our Hotel “Alte Post”, situated in the heart of Oberammergau. We have a total of 72 beds in 38 rooms. Most rooms are accessible by lift. We also provide family rooms with connecting doors and wheelchair-accessible rooms. If you are organising an active stay, you can book our new Bike & Ski Room. You can enjoy culinary delights in our various restaurants or perhaps on the sun terrace.
We look forward to being your hosts.
The Anton Preisinger family
Below the Kofel on the Grottenweg trail, there’s the Mariengrotte and Malenstein, a reputed pagan sacrificial rock. Opposite in a gap in the rocks of the Laber, 10 minutes above the road there’s the Bärenloch with resurrection figure in the cave.
The Ammer was called “Ambre” by the Romans, derived from the Celtic “Ambara” and “Ambrigow” at the time of the Welf dynasty around 880. Whether the Welf Earl Ethiko settled in the monastic hermitage with his 12 followers here or up the Kappel in Unterammergau is unclear.
The farms date back to these settlers. The Thirty Years’ War (plague, 1635 and 1647 Swedish invasion), War of the Spanish Succession (1703/1704), French Revolution (1800), Napoleonic Wars (1805 and 1809) and village fires as well as frequent floods from the Laine and Ammer hit Oberammergau.
When the railway line was completed in 1900, tourism received its boost with the Passion Play. After the Second World War, the opportunities and facilities for guests were improved massively: a large network of hiking trails, a wave pool, the Laber gondola, Kolben chair lift, nine ski lifts, from 1,5 to 90 km long trails as the circular trail for the König Ludwig Lauf race.
