Stanglwirt's farming in the early years
The distribution of skills was an important factor in making Stanglwirt a broadly popular inn. The wife was responsible for the gastronomic area, the husband and farmer was responsible for the service and entertainment of the guests. There was never any debate about excluding farming from the Stanglwirt business. “We would never give up farming, it is our core business!” said Anna Hauser, “and as long as there is livestock in the cowshed and as long as we have fields behind our house, not even the prospect of hard times can scare us.”
With her motto “Everybody should feel at home here”, the young hostess gave a new life to the inn. Anna was always ready to sing or yodel, since she knew that many guests came for her singing.
The bi-annual singers’ meeting definitely broadened the inn’s popularity across the entire Alpine region. The prosperous business forced the hostess of Stanglwirt to expand. But there was a bit of a problem - a window that directly faced the cowshed became visible during the renovation work of the restaurant. Lois had the brilliant idea to preserve the cowshed-view as a tourist attraction. He went through with his plan, despite the utter disbelief of the architects. The cowshed-window at Stanglwirt became a trademark with an unbelievable advertising effect. This was never done before - cows watching the guests while they eat.
