Monika Julen opens Hotel Abendruh together with her sister Seraphine. Things really take off in the 1950s thanks to their shared entrepreneurial spirit and enthusiasm.
Hans was the concierge at Hotel Morgenrot. He passed by Hotel Abendruh several times a day with his luggage trolley. Monika always had her eye on Hans and one day offered him an Ovaltine during one of his breaks. This cup of Ovaltine marked the beginning of a beautiful love story…
Their daughter Hannelore was born during the swinging sixties and the family couldn’t have been happier.
