The Falkensteiner Hotel Group combines decades of tradition with state-of-the-art innovation. “Welcome Home” shapes everything we do here on a daily basis. Crowd investing is an innovative building block in our strategy to give guests and investors the opportunity to support the continued growth of the popular hotel group while enjoying great benefits.
In January 2019, one of the largest crowd investments ever undertaken outside the US was completed. We raised €16.7 million across the five investment phases between October 2017 and January 2020, with an average investment of just under €8.000.
Falkensteiner: A special company story
The success of this record-breaking crowd investment strategy was based on a company history second to none: in 1957, Maria and Josef Falkensteiner opened a small guesthouse in the Puster Valley in South Tyrol. With just seven rooms, the Falkensteiners relied on true hospitality to build their business right from the start. Every visitor should feel like they are being welcomed into the family and the Falkensteiner Group still remains true to offering a “Welcome Home!” its official slogan.
Today, the group has grown from just seven to more than 4.700 rooms! With 27 four- and five-star hotels as well as two apartment complexes in seven countries and some 2,000 employees, guests spend more than 2 million nights at Falkensteiner Hotels & Residences each year.
