Bad Schörgau - wellness tradition since 1689.

A long tradition

1533
First documented entry of the Bad Schörgau.
 
1689

18th century
The rural baths are famous among the inhabitants of the Sarentino Valley. Up to 100 guests are welcomed per year. 
 
1846
The big disaster: After several strong thunderstorms the Talfer in combination with the little stream "Steet" destroys the complete rural baths including the chapel.
 
1897
The rebuilding of the Bad Schörgau including 20 beds and 10 "tub cells" is finished. Though on the other side of the Talfer as the stream bed is shifted due to several mudslides.
 
During the 2 World Wars and the postwar period the Bad Schörgau sinks into calmness. In the 1960s then operations start again.
 
1975
Rosi and Sepp Wenter take over as the new tenants of the Bad Schörgau.
 
1986
After 11 years of tenancy the Wenter Family is able to buy the Bad Schörgau. A gourmet restaurant is formed and the 20 existing guest rooms are refurbished. The restaurant quickly becomes one of the most important adresses for gourmets in South Tyrol. Not at least the extraordinary creations of Chef Sepp Wenter and the above-average wine culture of these days attract many guests from near and far.
 
2002
Enlargement of the "old" Bad Schörgau by building the new "Wood Hotel" including 15 additional rooms and a spacious lobby. The culture of bathing is reactivated by the new SPA-area. After the sudden and unexpected passing of Sepp Wenter his son Gregor takes place as the new Chef. Together with his mother Rosi and the two sisters Sabine and Steffi he operates the business now.
 
2010
The Bad Schörgau welcomes again a new Chef: Egon Heiss. Gregor Wenter retires from the kitchen and takes over the management together with Egon.
 
2012
Enlargement of the SPA with a big relaxing zone, an outdoor farmer's sauna and an outdoor swimming pool including wooden whirl tubs.
 
It has been a long time from 1533 since today but the old spirit of the rural bathing culture is still alive. The Wenter Family stands for it. With lots of enthusiasm, engagement and feeling they make all the guests feel like being part of the Bad Schörgau. They're always open to new ideas and projects. Standing still is an unknown phrase. And that's why also in the future there'll happen a lot at the Bad Schörgau...
