Our guesthouse has been in the family for three generations. Aladar Reisner built it in the Thirties before emigrating to the US shortly before the outbreak of World War 2. After the war the property was returned to Aladar Reisner. From 1956 Maria and Jacob Leban (my grandparents) ran the guesthouse. In 1962 they acquired the property. In 1977 my father Josef Leban senior took over the establishment, expanding the cellar, kitchen and toilet facilities. A garden terrace able to sit up to 120 people was added in 1990.
After some years away from home, in the Tyrol (Hotel Liebes Rot Fluh where I met my wife Carina), in Munich (Gasthouse Glockenbach run by Karl Ederer, Restaurant Tantris run by Hans Haas) I and Carina made the decision to take over Gasthaus Leban in 2003. In 2004 we undertook a major reconstruction. The former family residintial area of the house was torn down, replaced with a new cellar, new living accommodation for my father and the family, and 5 guest rooms. Despite this major building project, we were able to open to our customers in just 3 weeks.
The new part of the guesthouse was formerly opened in April 2005. In 2007 the reconstruction of the guestrooms took place (each awarded with 3 stars), as did further work on the garden terrace.
