In the year 1969 Heinrich (former farmer and football player with Allemannia Aachen/Oberliga) and Marianna Willms (visited hotel management school) bought the "Pension Walter". The two had been thrilled because of the pension's location - ideal for their vision. The good-bye from the homeland Eschweiler/Dürwiss (Germany, North Rhine-Westfalia) was especially hard for "Aka" Willms - but soon, many guests from Germany followed, which spent their summer- and winter holidays in Tyrol. What is best - the high number of regular guests still remains - from the very first day until today!

The story behind this question is interesting and funny at the same time - thus, it's hardly possible to write it down... just let it be told in person!
