The history of Geisel Privathotels, the family owned company running the Königshof Hotel, dates back to the turn of the century with the management of the Löwenbräu beer tent at the Oktoberfest. When Anna and Karl Geisel opened the "Pasinger Weinbauer" restaurant during World War I, they had already established themselves as pioneers. Introducing a wine restaurant was a bold venture back then, especially in a town like Munich where beer drinking is a tradition. The family business has always been characterized by an innovative spirit. And wine has continued to play an important role in the history of the Geisel family, paving the way for other new dining concepts.
Since the early 1990‘s, Carl, Michael and Stephan Geisel, the fourth generation to manage the family business, have successfully carried on with the rare tradition of family-managed hotels. Their personal commitment and innovative concepts follow directly in the footsteps of the Geisel family. The Geisel’s run four hotels in Munich which will all be introduced here.
The Hotel Königshof is located at Munich’s Karlsplatz/Stachus square, with direct transport connections to the central railway station, the conference centre and the airport. The Hotel offers superior rooms, suites, concierge service and classical bar, is without doubt one of the best addresses of the Bavarian capital.
