A short account of the historical inspiration and philosophy of the “Alt Hintertux” sauna village.
We used Hintertux at the turn of the century, with its weather-beaten mountain farmhouses, school house and and the small Hintertux chapel as the symbolic template for the creation of our sauna village. The saunas were given the farm names of the old-established Hintertux families. Over the last 50 years life has changed fundamentally and the mountain farmhouses have become tourism businesses. Most of the businesses in existence today took the old farm names.
This goes for the Hohenhaus, the Nenner (today Sport Nenner) sport store, the Hotel Kössler and the Willeiter and Jörgler guest houses. It is different for the farm name “Hesser”. This has always been and remains the name generally used by local people for the Klausner family. In keeping with the family name, this farmhouse became the “Hotel Klausnerhof”. The windows in the recreated Hintertux chapel are original windows from the church in St. Margarethen. For protection and also for insulation purposes these more than 300-year-old leaded windows were set in insulating glass.
A ball, a racquet and four walls – our guests can use our squash court free of charge.
