Our history

From idea to reality. From reality to remodeling. For 45 years, the Stattmann has brought life to the colorful tourism landscape of Gerlos!

  • Christa Stattmann

    ... around 150 years ago, there was a young maiden from Tyrol. The young daughter at the Cafe Platzer in Gerlos went on to hotel school, an internship in Munich and even milkshake courses on the island of Sylt.

  • Edi Stattmann

    ... in Carinthia: The Austrian version of James Dean, a baker and master confectioner, who had gained experience in Innsbruck, Vienna and Stuttgart, became the perfect son-in-law for the Platzer family ...

  • Christa & Edi

    ... and so it was that Edi came to Gerlos. Though they'd worked together and teased each other for some time, sparks didn't begin to fly for another 4 years ...

  • Bauplatz Milchbar

    But then they really hit the nail on the head - and along came homes and children.

  • Bau der Milchbar

    The Milchbar was built opposite the Cafe Platzer in 1971/72.

  • Milchbar

    In August 1972, the time had finally arrived: the Milchbar opened its doors, immediately becoming a popular spot for young and old with its fantastic milk specialties and sweets.

  • Edi & Christa Stattmann

    Freshly baked caterers in the family way ...

  • Tina

    In 1973, our establishment's first full-fledged daughter came into this world - Tina. She has always loved wearing traditional folk dresses.

  • Christa mit Tina

    Of course, those folk dresses were a little shorter back in those days ...

  • Familie Stattmann

    The young Stattman Family in 1977

  • Edi´s MG

    Their first car and Edi's true love, whom he still misses to this day - a bright red MG ...

  • Forellenheim

    1981: Christa's parents' house had a long history, but now it was ready to be torn down ... and today's "Bierkönig" was built.

  • Isabell

    1981 was also the year that Child No.2 was born - our Isabell.

  • Tina & Isabell

    Tina had been setting out pieces of candy on the window ledge for years, in a bid to get the stork to bring her a little sister - it took 8 years until she finally was an only child no more ...

  • Christa und Isabell

    Christa and Isi

  • Milchbar

    Bierkönig and Milchbar until 1993

  • Wachhund Whiskey

    Our best acquisition came in 1993: Whiskey. Totally unsuited to be a watchdog - but unbeatable when it comes to welcoming guests!

  • Umbau Milchbar

    After 22 years, the Milchbar was renovated in 1994, with an extra floor being added.

  • Tina & Isabell

    Nowadays, it's impossible to imagine the Milchbar Team without Tina and Isabell ...

  • Familie Stattmann

    2007: After the sudden death of Papa Edi Tina&Isabell had to run the business on their own with the same passion their parents always did.

  • Tina & Isabell Stattmann

    2009: The Milchbar girls, Tina & Isabell, breathe new life into the Milchbar, beginning a face lift true to the motto: tradition meets modern design meets preserving what deserves to be preserved.

  • Übergabe

    Restaurant Milchbar becomes Restaurant Dahuam.202! Sometimes good things come to an end so that even better things can begin. Since December 2020, we have therefore entrusted our restaurant to Antonia & Fabian, who will turn it into your new favourite restaurant!
