The Panholzers of Austria
Through the Internet I have found
about 350 phone entries for Panholzers living in Austria.
That number can certainly easily be doubled to arrive at an estimate
of all Panholzers living in households in Austria. Quite a number
of them are in academic professions and turn up on the Internet
as university staff or authors of academic publications. I found
two Panholzers as inventors at the Index of the US. Patent
To care for our souls there are
several Panholzers who are priests, one of them important
enough to serve as subject for an authoritative biography.
To care for our earthly well-being there are at least two inns
(Gasthof): The Panholzer Gasthof "Zur 100-jährigen
Linde" in Kleinraming near Steyr, Upper Austria, and
the Panholzerhof in Kaltern an der Weinstrasse in South Tyrol
(today part of Italy), the latter being a Buschenschank (or Heurigen)
where you can bring your own picnic and taste the wine grower's
own wine. Both of these could serve as ideal location for gatherings
of the future Panholzer Club (?!?) (shouldn't the Ban(n)holzers
be accepted as well?).
