The history of the Alpenresort Walsertal

For more than 86 years we try to provide our guests and staff with the best comfort in our hotel. Since the inauguration in the year 1932 our hotel was frequently mordernised and adapted to the newest standards.

1932 The hotel Faschina was built in the year 1932 with a bakery and a confectionery by Rudolf Sperger from Lustenau and his wife Hermine, born Stader from the island Reichenau, in a traditional wooden construction. All rooms already possessed a central heating and flowing cold and warm water.

In autumn 2013, the Hotel Walserhof was renovated and we created 8 top family suites, 2 junior suites and a panoramic indoor pool. The kitchen was modernly furnished, the fitness area and the children playroom were extended.


The outdoor area of both hotels with playground were renovated. The fish ponds are put into operation and filled with many fishs. 

We also got our first 3 alpacas "Narvin", "Nazca" and "Primo". 

In autumn, in both hotels nearly every bathing room and living area was renovated. 

The name "Alpenresort Walsertal" is used as a surname, which stands for the Hotel Faschina, the Hotel Walserhof and the Chalet Sperger.



Ongoing renovations: rooms, ski room, new carpets, ...


The wellness area is expanded - the new, very cozy relaxation room "Heustock" with water beds and infrared cabin is created.
