History of the Kohlerhof

Friedrich Heim and his 8 brothers grew up on their parents’ farm. The farm still exists, but today, his brother Franz runs the farm with his family. And finally in December of 1974: Friedl’s parents, Gertraud and Franz, opened an inn called “Landgasthof Kohlerhof”. In 1985, when father passed away, Friedrich had to take over. Since then, Friedrich runs the Kohlerhof with his partner and his grown-up daughters.

Mr. Franz Heim

THE KOHLERHOF IS THEIR LIFE’S WORK. We are very proud of your REMARKABLE ACHIEVEMENT!

Mrs. Gertraud Heim

My mother (né Wimpissinger) grew up in Ried im Zillertal but as fate would have it, she found love in Fügen. When we asked her to describe the touristic development of the region and her most memorable experiences, only two words came to her mind: a heartfelt "vergelt's Gott!”

Mr. Friedrich "Friedl" Heim

My parents opened the inn in December of 1974. Eleven years later, we were struck by ill fate. My father passed away. I had to leave school in order to run the inn, which was already a larger operation by then. Although I didn’t see it as a burden, it surely was a challenge at such a young age. I quickly knew that I had to continue my parents’ lifework, constantly adapt it to modern standards, and eventually pass it on to the next generation. And this is what I love to do. Greetings from Friedl, and the Heim family
