Schloss Dürnstein Relais & Chateaux
Employees of the Schloss
Between 80 - 90% of our employees come back after the winter break, even though we run a summer season only and each one is obliged to look for another winter job.

We, the host, are thankful for our permanent staff, because a longtime colleague is significantely involved in the well being of our guests. Who does not enjoy being recognized by the maître?: "Good day, the same table as always?". Our staff members know the habits of our regular guests and anticipate their wishes.

Johann Zusser spent a season with Hotel Schloss Dürnstein in the early 90s before working independently for a period of time. Returning and wholeheartedly leading the kitchen staff, he has been an instrumental part of the team here for the past 8 years.

Instead of spending his winters at home, you can find Johann at some of the most-renowned ski resort houses.

Our former maître Mario Eschelmüller joined us again mid 2015. We are very happy to have him back.
