A guesthouse with tradition


The FORSTHOF – first mentioned in 1563 – as the property of one Caspar Euvelstätter,a former administrator of the monastery.
In 1865 an Andreas RUDER from Rollhof acquired the property and later passed it on to his son Franz Ruder. A shooting hall, an ice cellar and a bowling alley extended the original Forsthof.

The Forsthof

  • 1865: it became a tavern under the owner Franz Kreis and was named “ZUM FORSTHOF”.
  • 1912: he handed over the entire property to his son Franz Ruder, who was married to Katharina Schmalzbauer.
  • 1942: PAUL RUDER inherited his parents’ house and ran it together with his wife Maria, born Mühlbauer fromTrautmannshofen. He built a hall in place of the former bowling alley in 1947, to which the new inn “ZUM FORSTHOF” was attached in 1954.
  • 1981: he handed over the entire estate to his daughter ANNELIESE, who is married to JOHANN REINDL. They expanded the inn in 1991/1992 and gave it its current appearance.
  • 2007: The Reindl family received the silver award from the Minister of State Miller on the occasion of the Bavarian Cuisine Competition. The preservation and cultivation of the Bavarian inn tradition, combined with the use of regional products throughout the year, are the focal points of this competition.
