FROM A FRIED CHICKEN STATION TO A GOURMET RESTAURANT

The Landhaus Bacher’s history stretches back to the 1950s. Back then, the Wachau area was the setting for numerous comedy films, and the guest house owned by Lisl Bacher’s parents quickly became a hangout for movie stars. Peter Alexander, Gunther Philipp, Hans Moser, and Peter Weck were some of the guest house’s regular patrons. Stars and starlets alike came to enjoy the restaurant’s high-class and yet down-to-earth cuisine. In 1979, Lisl Wagner-Bacher took over, and in the early 80s she ushered in a new era of “nouvelle cuisine.”

In 2010, Thomas Dorfer, Lisl Wagner-Bacher’s stepson, took over as Head Chef, and he now goes in new directions while still continuing the traditions of the Landhaus, which is in its third generation of family ownership.
