In the third generation, Stephanie Zarges-Vogel is at her side – supported by the little Coco-Felice, who runs cheerfully through the corridors and regards the house, the most beautiful resorts in the entire Alpine region, as her own. Not only is Coco-Felice happy about playmates, but also warmly welcoming the little guests. And because knowing about the needs of children, special child menus are also offered and other services in addition to loving care. Attitude to Life – “The average gives the world its existence, the extraordinary its value.” From whom this quote comes, Oscar Wilde would certainly be very impressed by Thurnher’s Alpenhof because the hosts have always been committed to this credo of Oskar Thurnher and thus to the claim to offer the extraordinary.
