MYTH AND LEGEND since 1980

In October 1980, Angie Reiter opened the legendary „old“ Baumbar

Within a few days the Baumbar was „THE NUMBER ONE“ party scene in the whole region. Headlining the Austrian star Roy Black. It was a big success and Startkick! From then on it was Star after Star: Falco, Bilgeri, Fendrich, Franco Andolfo, Percy Sledge, Middle of the Road, C. C. Catch, Georg Mc Grey and many more… The Baumbar legend is looking back at a long history as an innovative Disco, back then located in the center of Kaprun (Alpenhaus Kaprun). 

The Reiters continuously tweaked the success of their Baumbar and everything ran fantastically.

Many tales are told about the old Baumbar. If you keep your ears open, you sense that practically everyone in Pinzgau has a personal story about the good old days of the Baumbar. Stories that include the fire at the “old Baumbar”, of course, but also memories of dancing the night-hours away. 
In other words, the legendary Baumbar looks back on a long history as an innovative disco at the entrance to Kaprun. With its close Kaprun ties, a number of generations have already grown up with this dance bar. It seems that everyone who’s anyone gets together at the Baumbar.

The hottest night - April 23, 1988

It was supposed to be the hottest night since the opening. The Baumbar burned down to ashes, in the night of 23. April 1988. Unfortunately the construction was delayed, then Angie took over the „Kuhstall“ – Bar in Kaprun, which she started leading with the „Baumbar-Philosophy“.

The new Baumbar was opened on todays location

The Opening was a big-Party with Nino de Angelo, Franco Andolfo, Thomas Forstner and Peter Cornelius and   Sport stars like Ulli Maier, Toni Sailer, Karl Schranz, Peter Seisenbacher and Andi Felder came to congratulate Angie.



October 2015 - A new era begins. The legend lives on

After 35 years, Angie Reiter handed over the reins to three young Kapruners, Matthias, Hörbi and Joshi!
"Looking back to tradition, we create the future."



Big construction start April 2019, after 1,5 years planning phase!

On 26. October we reopened the Baumbar again for all guests and friends. Baumbar is the hottest Party location in the region! Live acts and Djs with mega beats guarantee a great time! We also reopened our Baumbar restaurant that can fulfill all your culinary wishes.

Good food, drinks, party and dance you will find all under one roof!
