Hotel zum Weissensee

Passionate hosts
for generations

Family Koch


In the morning before first light, not wanting to waste a minute of the day, Birgit can be found taking care of anything and everything that might need her attention. She might be in the office dealing with inquiries, attending to small details around the hotel, or making sure individual guests have what they need. In the afternoon she’ll find a little time for her mountain bike, or maybe the yoga mat.


Gerhard can most often be found in either the wine or the beer cellar. He has a fine palate and, with the aim of ensuring each of our guests has the perfect glass for dinner, he’s always on the lookout for new products. He’s always ready with a joke or a funny anecdote and is guided by his personal mantra: “don’t take life too seriously, take everything as it comes, and be ready for anything”.


Family tradition at Weissensee


And then there’s the next generation. There’s Laura, the eldest, already at work in the family business. She might be dashing around the hotel to take the perfect photo so that our guests are able to stay up to date on social media, happily combining her hobby with her day job in the process. With her creative mind, she has responsibility for all aspects of design and marketing.


Hanna and Emma are still in training, in the same industry, of course, as we might have already mentioned, tourism and hospitality are our whole family’s twin passions. Wherever a helping hand is needed, they are there to lend their support – with big smiles on their faces.


We look forward to meeting you in person,

Gerhard, Birgit, Laura, Hanna and Emma KOCH
