At the “Alpina” you can feel that being on holiday means more here than simply being a visitor. And you can feel that from the moment you arrive. For three generations and 50 years in which the hotel has captured our family’s spirit, we have made the Alpina into a family hotel amid the blue mountains of the Silvretta – a family hotel, in which tradition and zeitgeist merge.

The history.

The guest house “Alpina” was opened in 1964 by Gebhard and Rosa Walter (née Falch) with about 10 beds and a restaurant. Gebhard was a ski pioneer, a skiing instructor, a mountain guide, a farmer and owner of the guest house Vallüla in Galtür. And he was well-known in the region. After his sudden death in 1966 his children Herbert and Irmgard took over the guest house and that way, made sure the hotel would remain family-run – and this hasn’t changed up to now.

Two years after his father’s death, Herbert, who had followed his father’s footsteps by becoming a farmer, skiing instructor and mountain guide, married Hildgard (née Pöll) also coming from Galtür. The two ran the guest house together with an adjacent house until 2003.

The oldest son Dietmar, also skiing instructor, took over the guest house in 2004. He, a ski enthusiast as well, runs the hotel – meanwhile renovated and enlarged – with his wife Maria (née Höfler) from Lower Austria with the same friendly atmosphere and enthusiasm.
