The History of Chalet Wegmacher
Until the 1970s the profession of „Wegmacher“ (German term for workers building roads) was common in many municipalities in the Austrian Alps. Wegmachers were responsible for building and maintaining gravel roads for agricultural use or foresty. Two-wheeled carts, a shovel and a brush were the most common tools of Wegmachers.
One of the first Wegmachers in Kirchberg in Tirol was Johann Schiessl. He built a house on the plot of Chalet Wegmacher in timber construction in 1936. His home soon became widely known under the name “Wegmacherhäusl” in the hamlet Spertendorf.
The “Wegmacherhäusl” was replaced by the Chalet Wegmacher in 2015 by the Leiter family. When building the chalet family Leiter aimed to reuse many materials and objects of Johann Schiessl’s Wegmacherhäusl. Guests at Chalet Wegmacher will find the original oven that was used to heat the whole house and to prepare all meals. Likewise, the old wooden floors were reused for the interior design.
