One last view ...

... of our "old" Hotel-Appartments Thurnerhof, where we have been able to pamper numerous loving holidaymakers and regular guests over the past years.

March & April 2020 - start-up phase

First preparations & demolition work

Finally the time has come! The first preparations for the big reconstruction were already made in mid-March. Motivated, organized and full of energy, we were thus able to start clearing out and demolishing the first areas according to plan.

16 March - the first container arrives at Hotel Thurnerhof

Perfect timing! The first container is ready and waiting to be loaded.

March 24th

Everything has to get out...
Everybody helps diligently, because the rooms on the first floor have to be completely cleared out. Soon they are hardly recognizable.

26 March & 31 March

Two days later the rabbit hut has to give way as well.

That was quick... Today we are already digging the ground for our pool.

31 March

At the same time, demolition work is progressing in the interior - restaurant and bar are already being cleared of rubble. Without our hard-working helpers we would not have been able to do this so quickly!

Main building - Hotel Thurnerhof

Spontaneous change of plans...
Due to the COVID-19 crisis, we decided to carry out the entire hotel reconstruction in one go.

Demolition of our "Stammhaus"

Today our 300 year old main building is being torn down. Looks a bit wild - but that will change soon :).

Our fallen main building

3 generations are looking with laughing and crying eyes at the place where the old main building was located just a short time ago. Of course this will be rebuilt in the same style, but without "woodworms" ;).

16 April to 30 April - Furniture, "Stube" & Pool

All furniture from the rooms & the restaurant are given away. The old parlour will be used again. At the end of April the floor slab for the swimming pool will be made. Now the shape and size of our pool are also clearly visible.

May 2020 - smooth operation

The restructuring process is progressing

Thanks to the wonderful weather we have already been able to implement a lot in the last days and weeks. We have been busy with digging, concreting and building...

5 May to 8 May

The construction of the floor for the new main building went smoothly. The first walls are already being erected.

May 13th

The exposed concrete wall is being built. As of today, the basement of the main building and the screed on the ground floor are also finished.
