Back500 years ago

A special place with a special history. Today, the alpine pasture ground on which the Gramai Alm stands has a lot to tell.

16th century

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.


The foundation stone of today's spa was laid this year. The two sweat lodges, the bear & poacher sauna were built and the first rest hut was built.


A wish comes true

Finally electricity, a dream comes true! On August 1st, 2010 we were connected to the local power and sewer network. Today, almost 100% of our electricity is generated from renewable, CO2-neutral energy sources, the years before we generated it with 2 diesel gensets (consumption approx. 60,000 liters of oil annually) and caught our wastewater in septic tanks under the parking lot and was properly disposed of every six months.


Vacation in a new dimension

It was the year of our biggest investment to date! The majority of our existing rooms have been remodeled and enlarged. Our quaint Almstadl was built, which has since been able to tell about many cozy hut evenings, and the terrace has been given an awning.


It's hot here

Cooking with love is balm for the soul. So that our hearty delicacies not only continue to taste good, but are also prepared according to the latest kitchen standards, we have modernized part of the kitchen...


Neighbor in need

Our old diesel generators have been supplying cities in Africa for years now. We are happy that we could make such a small contribution.


Family fun even bigger

Anyone who has ever spent a vacation with the whole family knows them - the Zwergalalm. It was created in 2014 and is great fun for the kids and for some quiet moments with the parents...


Work all over the house

The snuggle rooms "Talblick" and "Morgensonne" got a new shine. We have better uses for our mountain spring water than the way into the sewage system! We have therefore renovated our toilets and converted them to save water.


Enjoyment comes first

In 2016 we again implemented many projects during the winter months! The luxury shop was created in the rear of the Kasalm and the world's most modern dispensing system was installed and our handicapped accessible toilets were modernized.


In the middle of untouched nature

Since 2017 our guests can enjoy our heart project - the nature spa! The opening was of course a real highlight for the Gramai Alm, as our spa offer has grown fourfold in one fell swoop!


Cool & wet

This year we came with our new additional source to a water intake of a total of 30,000 liters (before 1/3)! There was also a lot going on in the kitchen: new ventilation including air conditioning and with the modern audio sound system the good old kitchen radio has also had its day - because only those who are in a good mood can cook well. ;)


Sustainable couch potato

This year we installed a new pellet heating system to protect nature around us in the best possible way, so we are now climate neutral. Back in the days, the parlors were a place where life took place, so 3 of our parlors were made cozy and shine in a new design.


New family member

The small Boutique Hotel Central in the middle of Pertisau on the Achensee has been part of the Gramai family since 2020. Here you can also vacation in winter and enjoy our warm hospitality at the lake.


The alpine source of power

A place of longing in the middle of the mountains! Grown from tradition and inspired by nature, the Gramai Alm in the heart of the Karwendel Nature Park at 1,267m above sea level is a very special place. This retreat combines pure relaxation, good food and soothing exercise. Take time for yourself and your loved ones. Our aim is to offer you a relaxing time in which you can find your way back to the essential, yes back to the origin.

Simply experience, enjoy, feel ... pure nature!

The Adi & Gabi Rieser family
and the hardworking "pleasure helpers"


From inn to luxury accommodation

In recent years, the Rieser family has truly created an Alpine pleasure farm out of the inconspicuous inn with lots of love and even more diligence. The restaurants and rooms were renovated with great attention to detail and the spacious alpine garden, including an adventure playground and petting zoo, was created.
