How the Mantlers found their way into the Mantlerhof
The Mantlerhof is one of the oldest buildings in our local congregation. His foundations date back over 800 years. Before that a medival seat of the knights of Kuenring stood in it’s place. Originally constructed as a monasterial farm it kept the purpose as farm building throughout the ages. The last phase of construction took place during the Rokoko period which is still very visible on the fassade.
In the cadastral register of Castle Grafenegg it is written “about a dwelling”. Transcription:
“… Mantler Johann Georg et Maria uxor Brunn 1815 durch Kauf pr 10000 F.- …”
Prior the purchase through the family Mantler there was a frequent change in ownership:
1751: Anna Theresia Köglin
1781: Jakob Mößmer, Ortsrichter
1787: Herr Anton Aquila, Reg. Beamter
1788: Herr Peter von Strehmayr, Verwalter
1805: Herr Karl von Lang, Major
1808: Herr Karl Hofsaß
Through constant care and active renovation, the old monasterial buidling still presents itself from its best side even today. The courtyard is tastefully landscaped by Margit Mantler-Ferstl and invites you to linger, especially in the spring. No matter in which direction you look, your gaze will most certainly meet something green.
