We are family

The Hirsch Inn is managed by us as a family

Our bourgeois inn was built in the middle of the picturesque village center of Leupolz. It is set back and away from the current main road. Leupolz belongs to the town of Wangen im Allgäu, it is only a few kilometers to the city center.

Enjoy the rural idyll in our house, surrounded by meadows, lakes and forests. Spend relaxing days in charming surroundings at the foot of the western Allgäu, in the immediate vicinity of the Alps and Lake Constance.

We are looking forward to your visit.

The history

A small piece of history of our inn

In 1837, the innkeeper Josef Sigg applied to the Royal High Office of Wangen to be allowed to operate a restaurant with the following wording:

“In the year 1813 my father received the tavern license, which I received permission to continue after his death in 1827, and which I have exercised ever since. …. I repeat my most humble request that you grant me the concession to establish a diner.”

Cheeks, Sept. 11 1837
