The story of a munich family
The Geisel success story began more than 100 years ago, when the great-grandparents of today's owners had the courage to dare something new and different in the beer stronghold of Munich – by opening the "Pasinger Weinbauer" restaurant. Just a few years later their first hotel followed at Munich's central railway station. That was their entrance into the hotel business.
A lot has happened in the meantime, but one thing has never changed: Geisel is still a family-owned company. Three brothers – the grandsons of the company founders, run four hotels and four restaurants, employ around 400 people and maintain a global network of partner hotels and restaurateurs, architects and designers, suppliers and tradespeople.
