A special place with a special history. Today, the alpine pasture ground on which the Gramai Alm stands has a lot to tell.
In the beginning was the alpine hut
As early as the 16th century, the Gramai Alm was farmed over the summer months. In those days, it was an alpine meadow with a high and a low pasture owned by the county of Coburg for a long time. The name ‘Gramai’ comes from the Rhaeto-Romanic and means "scree field". This language can only be found in South Tyrol and Switzerland today.
Raise the curtain on the inn
Around 1960, the Gramai Alm passed into private ownership. Even then, the area was considered one of the most beautiful chamois hunting areas in the country. Various works on the infrastructure were started: a road and a cable car were built going up to the Gramai Alm high pasture. In 1970, an inn for visitors, the Alpengasthof Gramai, was built on the alpine pasture.
Family-owned in the future
The Rieser family bought the Alpengasthof Gramai in 1999. They wanted to bring the unspoiled nature of this special environment into harmony with the present. In other words, offering guests a place to retreat where the focus is on the unique nature but without compromising on comfort. This approach is still firmly anchored in their philosophy today.
From inn to luxury accommodation
In recent years, the Rieser family has truly turned this unassuming inn into a luxury accommodation. The restaurants and rooms were renovated with great attention to detail, and a feel-good oasis made of Swiss stone pine wood was created in the midst of the Tyrolean mountains. The spacious alpine gardens round off the pleasures offered by the Gramai Alm to perfection.
