Milestones and pioneering spirit
Only one year after the Second World War, Erna and Hermann Bacher built a small hotel in Valdaora, which went down in post-war history as the first hotel in the Val Pusteria with running water. The daughters of the hotelier couple, Marlene and Edith, had the hospitality gene in their blood, which is why it was not surprising that they follow in their parents’ footsteps.
In 1968, daughter Edith set up the new Dependance Bacher, with husband Johann at her side to support her. In 1972, the Dependance became a three-star hotel, which would henceforth bear the name Mirabell. Another milestone: three stars became four, four became four stars superior.
The Mirabell becomes the first hotel with an indoor swimming pool in the Val Pusteria.
