Before telling you more about the Auenhütte, we would like to introduce ourselves. We that is the husband and wife team Christoph and Tanja Bantel, both passionate snowboarders, mountain bikers and mountaineers. We love living close to nature, on and off the ski slopes. Thus, we decided to turn our passion into profession.
How it all began – After having graduated from the “Belvoirpark” Hospitality Management School in Zurich, Christoph returned to the “Kleinwalsertal” Valley in 2011 and took over the management of the Auenhütte, which was then still a humble self-service eatery. However, being aware of the great opportunities, Christoph set himself the goal to breathe new life into the Auenhütte. While he was undertaking the first refurbishment work to the inn, Tanja was still studying in Innsbruck. Since 2014, both have jointly managed the Auenhütte to fulfil their dream.
