Rosemarie and Andreas took over the hotel from their parents.
Back in the 1950s Rosina and Hans Senger fell in love at the presentation ceremony of the Glockner Race. In 1959 they purchased the farmstead that now accommodates the Sengers' Chalet Hotel.
The "Gruber"-farm was, in fact, the beginning of a story of success! Thanks to careful alteration and modernization in the course of the past decades, the farm has turned into a charming hotel. Our guests love especially the "Alte Stube" lounge, which has been preserved up to the present day.
Having grown up as the daughter of an innkeeper, Rosina successfully managed the increasingly popular hotel together with her husband for many years. Even today with over 80 years, she likes to be around the hotel and often helps out in the garden. Unfortunately, Hans Senger died in May 2004, aged 79.
The history of our house and family is well reflected in the photographs lining the walls of the staircase.
Among the celebrities who stayed at Chalet-Hotel Senger Aga Khan, Luis Trenker, Heinrich Harrer, the Austrian national ski team with Toni Sailer and Karl Schranz, to name but a few.
Hans Senger was a member of the Austrian ski team for the 1952 Olympic Winter Games in Oslo.
And he also is keeps the best time of the legendary 'Glockner race' almost from the peak down to the
glacier area - with 2.46 min. That was in May 1949.
