For four generations the family Regner leads the Backhaus in Seckau. But baked in the house is much longer. 1660 Hofbäcker Adam Gundtschnickh built the building.

Nearly two and a half centuries later, the house came into the possession of the family Regner. In the year 1901 Michael Regner bought the bakery from his relative Jakob Wagendorf. In the next generation led 1949 Josef Regner I the confectionery industry. Eight years later, the coffeehouse startup followed: 1957.
Also in the third generation owned by the family Regner the house experienced some changes. Josef Regner II was meanwhile the 16th owner of the Bäckerhaus and as such had the parent company expanded. In addition, he expanded the operation of a bed and breakfast. Finally, Michael Regner took over 1985 because of a serious illness of the father the management of the enterprise with just 21 years.

Gregor was named confectioner in Canada in 2009 and together they hold a record that is unique in Austria: they all became state champions in the same category. With her success, Andrea Regner follows in the footsteps of her older siblings. As early as 2004, Johanna Regner won the Styrian national championships and joined the national championships of Austrian pastry apprentices. In 2008, Gregor Regner won the Salzburg State Championships and then the Federal Championships of Austrian pastry apprentices.
