Podcast: Stories from the Ottmanngut

In a podcast series worth listening to, journalist Andreas Sentker talks with host Martin Kirchlechner from Merano - about the past and the future, about the everyday and the curious, about life with guests and as a hotelier.

by Ulrich Stefan Knoll in October 2023

The exciting and entertaining series “Geschichten aus dem Ottmanngut” [Stories from the Ottmanngut] is in seven parts about the recent and early history of the house, the hospitality network, the guests and special encounters, as well as about Merano and South Tyrol from the perspective of a local hotelier family.

Listen to the series on Spotify (German version only).
