In 1857, Johann and Maria Riegler bought a small farmhouse on the northern edge of the spa-town of Bad Gleicheberg. After rebuilding, it was called “Marienburg” after Frau Riegler. The house was completely destroyed after a fire in 1860.
Mr Riegler rebuilt the house, making it much larger – with 35 rooms – adding stables and a large barn to store the luggage and carriages of guests visiting the spa.
In 1961, Karl Edler and his wife Gisela Edler von Stenitzer bought the Marienburg, which had become dilapidated after two world wars.
After extensive renovations, the Bad Gleichenberg resort was reopened in 1967. The newly-built atrium became the splendid centrepiece of the house, showcasing the mixture of tradition and modern design that the Edler-Stenitzers had sought. In 2005, the hotel was further enriched when a swimming pool and spa area was added. Today Michael and Christoph Stenitzer are the third generation of hoteliers.
