The Recent History of Hotel Dienstl Estate


 

Since 2011 the Estate is owned by the Danish businessman Kurt Daell. As a little boy he was adopted by a Danish family and since then he has lived in Copenhagen. After completing a law degree, he set up a chain of retail businesses in Denmark and Sweden. Despite his success, he never forgot his place of birth, St. Veit. He was particularly taken with the magnificent setting of the Dienstl Estate and when he heard it was for sale, he didn’t hesitate and bought it outright. In order to escape his business pressures, the native Carinthian likes to return to his roots. Hence the Dienstl Estate becomes his preferred holiday destination every summer.
