The premises

The Tiroler Schmuckkastl – a landmark of Seefeld

Renowned jewellery and watch brands, an inhouse goldsmith’s workshop and the romantic setting of the Tiroler Schmuckkastl. 


ürgen works front of house at the Tiroler Schmuckkastl. He loves advising the customers, sharing his expertise and passion for the business with a calm, friendly air. No detail is too small: the prong setting of a diamond ring, for example, the tiny cogs in a clock mechanism, the smile of a satisfied customer. Colours are referred to using shades and metaphors, as they appear to the trained eye of the gemologist.

He is more of a listener than a speaker and likes to get things done rather than sit on his laurels. In the grand world of jewellery and watches, his focus is on quality, value and consistency because appearance and luxury are not the only things that are important to him. He gives his full attention to all customers, without prejudice, and has a special ability to make everyone feel at home. A legacy perhaps from advising customers from the world over for the past 30 years.


eing made to feel welcome and at home. Listening, recommending, explaining. Understanding when time is of the essence or when it would be better to take a little longer. Noticing when some discretion is required. An extensive knowledge of the materials and properties of jewellery and watches.

Kindness, patience, empathy and honesty. Expertise with colours and proportions, respecting taste and requirements. If asked what we are particularly proud of, we would have no hesitation in replying: expertly advising all of our customers.

Simply because we love our job!



ith a passion both for high-end jewellery and haute couture, Heide is a qualified stylist who knows all there is to know about aesthetics. And that’s not all: before returning to Austria to focus her talents on her new passion of jewellery, she pursued a career in luxury fashion in Zurich and Paris.

Far from being a novice in our industry, she has in-depth experience in the world of jewellery and luxury watches. She is greatly valued by suppliers and customers alike. We very much appreciate that she decided to become part of our team. Now we and our customers benefit from the knowledge and added value she brings to the business.


f you have ever photographed the Tiroler Schmuckkastl in full bloom in summer, then you have already unknowingly admired the fruits of Gaby’s labour. If a job requires patience, dexterity and creative skill, she’s the one we turn to: stringing pearl necklaces, braiding macramé bracelets, mounting elastic stone bracelets.

Having worked with us for 20 years, she knows every corner of the building and keeps it looking beautiful. Time and again, we ask ourselves: what would we do without Gaby!


arlos is the youngest member of the team and Jürgen’s son and has been something of a breath of fresh air for the business. Eager to learn and respectful, his polite, yet self-assured air and youthful enthusiasm have captured the hearts of our customers.

He has also inherited his father’s calmness and passion for watches. For Carlos, not only is the Tiroler Schmuckkastl a place of work, it is also somewhere to call home as his life, between work, studies, sports and many experiences, continues on its journey.


ngrid, whose long professional career has been dedicated to the sale of gold and silver jewellery, first encountered high-end pieces of jewellery, both from our well-known brands and the in-house goldsmith’s workshop, in the Tiroler Schmuckkastl. And it was love at first sight: with fascination and curiosity she immediately felt at home in this world and now wears her own earrings by Marco Bicego.

It didn’t take long for us to discover her real talent: decoration. With a natural flair, she skilfully combines gemstone colours and jewellery designs, losing herself in the process. When she is finished, she regards the finished product, which is always tasteful and refined, with satisfaction and a little pride. She brings an extra-special glamour to our shop windows and display cases.


hen you express yourself best in writing and have an ability to notice and absorb every little detail, the best story telling results. That’s Elisa: a quiet observer of everything that goes on in our world, she sensitively conveys what she sees in her words and pictures. That’s why she is responsible for digital marketing: the content of the website, administering the e-shop and social media, sending out newsletters and much more besides.

A multilingual, internationally oriented art lover, she does also have experience in the jewellery industry, having worked (a long time ago) for a jewellery brand from her native Vicenza in Italy.


Four generations of jewellery tradition

ontrary to what you might expect, our jewellery story did not in fact begin in Seefeld.

The roots of our business can be traced back to the Schmuckkästchen jewellery shop our great-grandmother once owned in Oberschreiberhau, a town in what was then German Silesia. This was also where our grandmother, Johanna, learned the trade before her marriage. Her husband was also a jeweller from Bavaria and together they took over management of the Alpen – Schmuck –Kästl in Garmisch. However, the marriage was not a happy one. Newly divorced and with an iron will, she came to Seefeld alone in the 1930s to continue her profession.

She rented a small shop on a farm belonging to the Kuen family, which is where we are still based today. Thus, the Tiroler Schmuckkastl was founded in 1937.
In 1938, she married Johann Schiestl, eight years her junior, whom she had already met in Garmisch when he worked as a bellboy in the hotel Garmischer Hof. In 1939, he was called up for military service, leaving our grandmother to manage the store alone under the most difficult economic conditions throughout the Second World War. Both brothers of our grandfather, Johann, died in the war, soit was he who inherited the family hotel Gasthof Oberwirt in Gerlos. He soon sold it and, with the profits, the couple purchased the building from the Kuen family in the 1950s and rebuilt the Tiroler Schmuckkastl as it still stands today.

The shop has been in our family ever since, and is now on its 3rd generation of owners. In 1978, Johanna and Johann’s daughter Rosmarie took over the business with her husband Günther Armbruster. We, Gebrüder Armbruster (the Armbruster brothers), have been in charge of the company and its in-house goldsmith’s workshop since 2011.

And the story continues.
