History of the Planitzer Hof
The Planitzer Hof can be traced back in historical documents over a period of more than 300 years, during which time it has undergone many changes of both ownership and name. Today’s name derives from one of the first plots of land to be found in the records called Planitzer, which originally extended from the upper building to the old railway viaduct and was cut in two by the construction of the railway. The property today comprises the upper building, the lower house with the attached Chapel of St. Cosmas and St. Damian, about three and a half hectares of vineyard and over four hectares of forest and meadow. Interestingly enough, the names of the buildings and chapel have remained unchanged over the centuries and are still used by us as the proprietors today.
