In 1955 Arnold Ganahl, Florian Werner’s grandfather bought the old Hospiz Inn and started with extensive renovation works. Unfortunately the Arlberg Hospiz Hotel and church burned down to their foundations two years later. Arnold Ganahl had the “Hospiz” rebuilt and Christmas 1959 the hotel in St. Christoph in Austria opened its gates in renewed splendour.
The new Arlberg Hospiz Hotel was the most modern and beautiful hotel on the Arlberg of its time – all rooms were equipped with bathrooms, showers and toilets. With the rebuilding of the hotel in St. Christoph in Austria, Arnold Ganahl heralded in a new era. An age of luxury dawned on the Tyrolean Alps. In 1964 Adolf and Gerda Werner, Arnold Ganahl’s daughter, assumed the management of the Arlberg Hospiz Hotel St. Christoph in Austria. In 1993 son Florian Werner entered into the hotel business, which he has now turned into a Resort. With love and passion he and his wife Ursula run the Arlberg Hospiz Resort. The youngest family member is sunbeam Thaddaeus Christoph Tizian.
Dear ladies and gentlemen, dear Hospiz friends,
thank you very much for your interest in the 2020/21 winter season. Starting December 18, 2020 we will reopen the Hospiz Alm Restaurant, Chalet Skyfall, Alm Residences and the Landhäuser.
Sadly the Hospiz Hotel will not be open this coming winter. Covid-19 has changed our lives … at least for the time being but causing us to take this decision. Fortunately, we have the opportunity to use this time now productively to create a new era for the Hospiz Hotel, starting in December 2021. There is a lot to do and we have mixed emotions of sadness, joy and excitement. The coming months are all about new beginnings. Prior to our renovation, starting in April 2021, there are many steps and details to plan and prepare. We will create a new beautiful vacation destination for you to enjoy and have many memorable moments to come.
We are setting new standards in the Austrian hotel industry and together we will awake our small village of St. Christoph to new heights. Positioning ourselves as a year-round destination is an additional focus. The grand re opening will be in December 2021 with the completely refurbished and elegantly furnished Hospiz Hotel and the new opening of the most unique circular large bottle wine cellar at the Hospiz Alm. Another exciting project will be a new Hotel opening in December 2023 in St. Christoph with a slightly more modern and hip concept.
There is a lot of work ahead of us. We are convinced that it will take the resort in St. Christoph to an entire new level. It is very important to us that the warmth and the spirit that defines our Hotel is continued and that the Hospiz DNA is preserved.
We are looking forward to seeing you possibly in the Hospiz Alm Restaurant or in one of the Chalet Suites. If this year does not allow you to visit, we are excited for you to be part of the Hospiz family again, starting December 2021 at the “Grande Dame” Hospiz Hotel.
