The Brandnertal in former times
Only a few houses stood here. Life was full of privations and hard, but also often a simple round dance with the change of the seasons. The world was a village and the village was called Brand. Everybody knew everybody. And everybody knew good-hearted Mina and brave Eduard, the grandparents of your host today, Edi Meyer.
Mina and Eduard cultivated the inn tradition in the “Jägerheim”, a former toll station in Brand. At that time, the little Walser village was mainly coined by summer tourism.
How the foundation for our hotel was laid
The so-called „Sommerfrischler“, those seeking the healthy alpine summer climate, from the cities came to mountain villages to recreate in the fresh mountain air. Mountaineers, painters, fishermen and of course the people of Brand themselves were welcome guests with Mina and Eduard.
Mina Meyer finished her apprenticeship in 1876 in the legendary Hotel Sacher in Vienna – a phenomenon for the times back then here in the region.
