Summer retreat at the Tuffbadalm
multiple timespans (view details) , 4 Nights
The “Tuffbad Dörfl” (“Tuffbad Little Village”) was created in just nine months and opened in May of 1993. The Tourism Association’s Kurhaus was rented out and the next part of the dream came true step by step.
The groundbreaking ceremony for the construction of the 1. Almwellness-Hotel Tuffbad took place on 12 September 2002 in the pouring rain. Despite the challenges posed by the alpine landscape, the roof was completed before Christmas. We opened on 27 May 2003 and more than 1,500 people came to see the 1. Almwellness-Hotel Tuffbad.
In the meantime we children have entered the family business. My brother Gabriel completed culinary training at the Gasthof Unterwöger in Obertilliach and together with his wife Eva runs the Paternwirt, officially taking over on 1 January 2011. Children have “joined” the family business there too, with my godson Gabriel-Noah born on 12 July 2007 and Elena born on 23 December 2010.
I, Eva Maria, graduated from the Tourism School in Klessheim and together with my husband Egon Oberluggauer, who also grew up in the hotel and restaurant business, have run the hotel since 2004. In 2010 I became the principle owner of the hotel. I would like to thank my parents for giving me this responsibility and I can only say that here we are free to live out our life dream. Our daughter Estella was born on 12 April 2007 and her brother Enrico was born on 29 December 2008. We were married on 9 May 2009 in the Maria Luggau basilica. Since November 2006 my father - Councillor of Commerce Gabriel Obernosterer Sr. - has been a member of the National Assembly of Austria and my mother Angelika Obernosterer can most often be found in the Paternwirt, although she does stop by the Tuffbad every so often. They both support us as and when they can, and for this we would like to thank them!
Since 2010 we have also leased the former Gasthof Tuffbad and have transformed it into staff housing.
We also seek to continuously develop and so we present our Almwellness-Resort Tuffbad ****S, where you will continue to find tried and trusted, regional, natural quality and tranquility.
We highly cherish our immediate closeness to nature and also include the sustainable approach in our housekeeping. Therefore, it has always been a matter of course to find environmentally friendly and resource-efficient alternatives for our daily business.more on sustainability
