Hotel Wolfinger can look back on a long history. Originally built as a monastery, the first documented proprietor was Christoph Waiss is 1533. In 1585 Christoph Canevale was commissioned with constructing a new building on the site for Peter Waiss, later mayor of Linz, who owned the property from 1568 to 1616. From 1646 the building housed an inn which, in 1771, was given the name “Zum Goldenen Löwen”. In 1894 the inn’s long-serving head waiter, Leopold Wolfinger, leased the business, and three years later became proprietor. Since that time the name “Hotel Wolfinger” has been emblazoned on the facade. In 1974 the Dangl family of hoteliers from Linz bought the famous property that has been a listed building since 1940. Among the prominent guests of Hotel Wolfinger were Prince Metternich (1841), Archduke John of Austria (1843) and Hans Christian Andersen (1869), while Anton Bruckner was a regular patron.
