Hotel Wolfinger in Linz has a rich history that extends back to the 15th century. The hotel was originally built as a monastery, and the first recorded owner was Christoph Waiß in 1533. In 1585, Christoph Canevale rebuilt the house for Peter Waiß, who was later to become mayor, and who owned the building from 1568 to 1616. The building was a guesthouse from 1646, known as the “Golden Lion” from 1771. Leopold Wolfinger was the long-serving head waiter there, and in 1894 he leased the building, becoming the owner three years later. The name “Hotel Wolfinger” has appeared on the hotel’s façade since that time. In 1974, the hotelier family Dangl acquired the renowned building, which has been heritage protected since 1940. A number of famous people have lodged at Hotel Wolfinger, including Prince Metternich (1841), Archduke John (1843) and Hans Christian Andersen (1869), and Anton Bruckner was a regular guest.
