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 gave its name to our hotel chain mk | hotels. Located idyllically on the site of a historic moated castle – also part of the Lindner Group – we have been operating our in-house brewery with beer garden 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 our first hotel, the Schlossparkhotel Mariakirchen, just next door. In the following years, we have opened branches of the mk | hotels in Munich, Frankfurt, Eschborn, Berlin, London and Stuttgart. In 2015 we launched the first brewery offspring – Remscheider Bräu in Remscheid / Bergisches Land. After more than 20 years, this house is 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 Schiller Bräu in Munich, with the three-star mk | hotel münchen city and us, the Rüsselsheimer Bräu with a four-star mk | hotel. We are pleased to offer you our home made beer specialties in Rüsselsheim as well.
