The hotel’s long history began in 1934 as a simple Alpine inn. Just 13 years later, the pioneers Paula & Hans Steger moved in. She was a ski legend, and he a pioneer in mountaineering and modern ski technology. Together, they renovated the former refuge from the ground up and turned it into one of the first luxury hotels in the Dolomites. With a lot of love, sincere hospitality, and joy, they ran the hotel side by side. In 2000, the transfer of ownership and more renovation followed. Even now the hotel is managed according to the pioneer's values. The “Hans and Paula Steger Foundation”
In 2000, Paula established a foundation to support charitable projects and nature conservation on the Seiser Alm. All the couple’s assets belong to the foundation.
The “Hans and Paula Memorial Trail
“ was opened in 2006 in honour of the pioneers.
