Our History

The building started in 1971 and our family business opened in 1972 with 11 rooms. The aim of this life work was to create an independent family run business. The building was built by ourselves with very few labourers….

To this time, it was a 2 man, or better said a 1 man and 1 woman project. They were hard times and besides the work as a bricklayer, Simon also worked in the guesthouse and managed the service team, whilst Margarethe ran the kitchen single-handedly. Simon, born on May 4th 1945 and Margarethe, born on 28th January 1950, married on the 17th of January 1971. They had five children: Caroline, Renate, Brigitte, Simone and Marco (I continued the running of my parents business!).

The first business expansion was in 1993 – the guest rooms were extended; sauna, steam room, fitness room and an apartment were added.

Unfortunately, we were struck by a weather disaster (flooding) in August 1979, which was a real setback. A lot of money was put into making a dam in the mountain stream in order to prevent further natural catastrophes in the future. Two garages and two bank constructions were built.
