Schloss Dürnstein Relais & Chateaux
The Siblings The Siblings
“…after living in various places in other countries, I have been back in Dürnstein full-time at the hotel since 2003. For me, to be here—here in these rooms where I spent my whole childhood growing up—without my heart and soul would be unthinkable…” Maria Katharina Thiery-Schroll is married and has two children.

Her older brother Johannes Christian Thiery is the business’ manager. He studied computer science and not only uses his skillset to write all sorts of useful computer programs and applications for the hotel but also readily shares his experienced knowledge on local gourmet cuisine.

Their strong passion provides them with the energy to both undertake the day-to-day routine around the hotel and also row boats on the Danube.
The Senior Partners The Senior Partners
Rosemarie and Johann Thiery managed, with enough love and commitment, to transform an old building in desperate need of repair and open the only 5-star hotel in Lower Austria. Despite having ample room to enjoy the leisure and freedom of life in retirement, they still find themselves involved in the hotel’s daily affairs and continue to look after their guests just like they always have.
