Ten generations! The family founder Johann Kühbacher
bought it for 5,588 florins and his son married the daughter of
his competitor, who ran the nearby Orso Grigio. A dynasty was
born, and the family oversaw the development of tourism in Alta
Pusteria, building the first chairlift in San Candido in 1949.
Destroyed by a grenade in the First World War and by two fires,
the building, with its stube, suites and rooms, rose up again
with all the charm of South Tyrolean tradition. Great guests
include Johann Strauss in 1869 and Vittorio De Sica in 1969.
