About us - History

We and the beer

The roots of our house are located in Mariakirchen, a small village in lower Bavaria near Arnstorf, which also its name to our hotel chain mk | hotel. Located idyllically on the site of a historic moated castle – also part of the entrepreneurial family Lindner – we have been operating our in-house brewery with beergarden since 2003. The former stables of the castle, which had been released for demolition due to their desolate condition, was preserved through elaborate reconstruction works to accommodate the Schlossbräu Mariakirchen, our first brewery.

In 2007, we built the Schlossparkhotel Mariakirchen just next door. In the following years, we have opened branches of the mk | hotels in Munich, Frankfurt, Eschborn, Berlin, London, Stuttgart, Passau and Tirana. In 2015 we launched the first brewery offspring – Remscheider Bräu in Remscheid / Bergisches Land. After more than 20 years, this house will be producing its own beer again. In addition to the brewery in Remscheid, another mk | hotel has opened and in 2017, two further in-house breweries and mk | hotels will be established: the Rüsselsheimer Bräu along with a four-star mk | hotel and we, the Schiller Bräu in Munich, with the three-star mk | hotel münchen city in the Schillerstrasse. We are pleased to offer you our home made beer specialties in Munich as well.
