Hospitality & Tradition

For 50 years - Your Hotel in Lech am Arlberg

Hubert & Isolde Schwärzler laid the foundation stone in October 1968. In heraldry, the pelican symbolises hospitality, care and security. Running the hotel is our calling. Our work of serving guests and providing the best possible care is our passion. And everyone notices it. Your hosts at Haldenhof are already in their 3rd generation and we look forward to another 50 great years!

Your Schwärzler family & team

Foundation in October 1968

Hubert & Isolde Schwärzler obtained the building permit for your dream –  the small Haldenhof bed and breakfast – and work started in autumn. The topping-out ceremony already took place in August 1969.

Willi, Gebhard and Johann Schneider took over the construction management for their “little” sister. Isolde cooked and looked after the workmen, together with her mother Maria, from the kitchen of the Hotel Arlberg. Hubert was already managing the business of the tourist office and advertised vigorously.

Thank you dear dad for your love, your advice, your example, your time, your being

December 1969

The carpenters built the beds when our first guests arrived. Isolde, the innkeeper, provided them with snacks and drinks by the fireplace, which is how the tradition of the Sunday cocktail in Haldenhof started.

Passionate hoteliers

We run Hotel Haldenhof with heart and soul, passion and joy. The whole family and the team give the guests an authentic, warm feeling of a home away from home. The guests, the hotel, the location and the region are very important to our entire family.

Senior Hubert played a major role in designing the Lech tourist resort and our Credo "Always walk in your customer´s shoes!". Isolde took care of building up the hotel, as well as the guests. Together, they developed the Haldenhof into a place where tradition and hospitality are paramount.

Michael and Claudia are keeping this creed going, and our family's commitment to the guests and the region has not waned. Be it Michael the Ski Club Arlberg Ambassador, Claudia as the heart and core of the hotel, Alexander as a ski instructor, barman and young wine waiter or Johanna as student, concierge and receptionist – we have one thing in common.

We want to use our experience to conjure up a wonderful and unforgettable holiday in the Arlberg region.
