A hotel in de Dolomites with a long history
How it began
It all started with the Alpenhof, a very well-located 12-room inn which embodied our parents’ dream. Back then, there was no paved road to the building, but the inn already featured a small outdoor pool and a Finnish sauna, as well as a restaurant and a café. The Alpenhof team consisted of the family, one full-time employee, and one part-time employee.
A turning point
In 1997 Katja and Hannes got married and took over the hotel, giving start to the first massive renovation works which increased the number of rooms to 21 and turned the 2-star inn into a 3-star hotel. At that time, their first son Patrick was 3 years old; Paul and Sophia came later, in 1999 and 2001 respectively. In 2000, our hotel in the Dolomites was provided with a spa area including two sauna cabins, one relax area and two treatment rooms. The Alpenhof team now counted seven employees.
A big leap
New renovation works were carried out In 2007: 16 new suites were added, the dining rooms were refurbished and the panoramic pool and beauty farm were built, as well as a new hotel hall. One further big step was taken towards eco-sustainability: since 2007 our hotel in the Dolomites has been relying exclusively on 100% renewable energy sources. The renovation works were rewarded with the 4th star. Over the years, the Alpenhof team had grown to include 22 employees.
The past provided a solid basis for the future of our hotel in the Dolomites. Since 2014 the name has been changed into Alpen Tesitin; while the “Alpen” is a constant reminder of our origins, the “Tesitin” bears witness to our love for our land. In fact, “Tesitin” was the ancient name of Tesido/Taisten, the village where our hotel is located. But the changes carried out in 2014 stretched far beyond the renaming: we increased the number of rooms to 62, rebuilt from scratch the hotel hall, the dining rooms, the kitchen and all service rooms, and added a new sauna area and beauty farm. Today, our 4-star-superior hotel has a staff of over 50 employees.
A NEW challenge - we are looking foreward to it!
The second building phase starts now:
For over a year, we have intensively planned, tinkered, revised and polished the details with our heart and soul. We are looking forward to the upcoming redesign with a great deal of anticipation. 4 selected architecture and planning firms took part in the ideas competition for the new Alpen Tesitin.
The project of our architects, Mutschlechner Martin & Bucci Marco, who have already accompanied us through 3 conversions, impressed us the most and really inspired us.
The inspiration for the planning was our building from 1978. Simple shapes and clear lines, and the material wood were emphasised.
Further main themes in the planning were light and nature, which we would like to bring into the house with big glass elements. The design of water areas was also very important for us. These will be brought right to the fore, and therefore, our beautiful mountain backdrop with be the focus.
The number of rooms will remain unchanged during this conversion at 62.
The second building phase starts on 4 March 2018.
On 31 May 2018, all conversion works will be completed.
