Das Tschofen and the Eberle Haus have enjoyed strong links for more than half a century. Roland Eberle’s father ran a second-generation bakery here until 1943. The ground floor and the first floor of the Eberle house were later rented to the Tschofen family, which ran a speciality shop for tableware and kitchen appliances here until it finally closed. The old town house immediately casts its spell on visitors. The listed building has today been revived as a loving city hotel that – as has always been the case – welcomes its guests. Ideal for meetings with flair, the charm of the old town and great flexibility.
Those who are impressed by history and atmosphere will find a jewel in the Wald 12 building for meetings: 400-year-old walls filled with new life. Wald 12 is one of the oldest surviving mountain farmhouses in Wald am Arlberg. The vaulted cellar, the centuries-old tiled stove in the parlour, the ‘Lutzofen’ stove on the top floor and the panelled ceiling that was fitted with such great attention to detail create a unique atmosphere within the building, a feeling of humility and security. The newly built rooms, which are in keeping with the building’s character, were realised in the former domestic wing, a part of the structure that originally dates back to 1780.
It is apparent at first glance that Genuss- und Aktivhotel Sonnenburg is something special where its architecture is concerned. But not only that, even if the shell seems very up to date, there remains the precious old core inside. Margarethe and Paul Wohlgenannt bought the then more than 300-year-old main house in 1929 and transformed it into a ‘restaurant with accommodation’. Their granddaughter Heike Wohlgenannt has been running the Sonnenburg since 2002. The architecture exudes a modern lightness that in spite of that does not seem to have lost sight of tradition. Evidence of the family’s history is to be found throughout the building and brings Walser culture to life, including in the meeting room for 10 people that boasts a 180° panoramic view of the Kleinwalsertal alpine world.
