A Hotel with History & Tradition
The Hotel Müller is situated in one of the most beautiful areas in Germany, near the Austrian border at the end of the “Romantic Road”. It lies between the Bavarian royal castles of Neuschwanstein (King Ludwig’s castle) and Hohenschwangau.
The Müller family has roots reaching back to the year 1690 in the nearby village of Schwangau. In the early 19th century, the family moved to Hohenschwangau, right to the spot where the hotel stands today. The Müllers were originally farmers.
Their most important source of income was providing all kinds of transport by horse-drawn carriage: transporting goods to and from Hohenschwangau, guests to and from the train station in Füssen, and building materials for Neuschwanstein Castle. Last but by no means least, they also collected and brought guests to and from Innsbruck in Austria, a very long journey in those day. The Müller family ran the transportation company until public post busses were introduced at the beginning of the 20th century.
In about the year 1900, a guest house was built next to the farm house. It was only run in summer, mainly for guests of the royal household at Hohenschwangau Castle. At this time, Hohenschwangau was the residence of the Bavarian Prince Regent Luitpold, who had ascended the throne in 1886 following the mysterious death of his nephew, King Ludwig II of Bavaria.
In 1909, the Müller family decided to tear down the old farm house and build a hotel. The Hotel Haus Müller was opened in 1910 and has been run by the Müller family ever since. In 1983, the family extended the hotel, building a new wing in exactly the same style as the old hotel, to replace the old guest house.
Today, the Hotel Müller is an establishment offering plenty of modern amenities, a cosy atmosphere, warm hospitality, and the pride of having run the hotel as a family business since 1910.
The fairy-tale castle of King Ludwig II.
You can get here on foot, by horse-drawn carriage, or by shuttle bus.
More than 100 Years of Family Tradition
Great grandfather Josef Müller built the hotel in 1910.
Following the death of his father in 1924, his son Josef Müller ran the hotel with his wife Josefine.
In 1960, the hotel was passed on to their son Richard Müller, who managed the company’s fortunes for 50 years until his death in 2010.
In 2011, his son Richard Müller Jr. took over the running of the hotel, actively supported by his sisters Katharina, Hildegard, and Stephanie.
