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.
During a one-year language study trip to Geneva, Hannelore met and fell in love with a young chef named André Köslich.
After their wedding, the young couple took over management of the hotel from Monika and Hans.
Hannelore and André’s first-born child opens her eyes to the world.
Hotel Abendruh is renovated and expanded to become Hotel Abendruh-Ambiance.
Their son Alain arrives to complete the family.
Sustainability is writ large at Hotel Ambiance. The hot water in our hotel is heated directly by the sun.
We renovated the rooms, bathrooms, lobby and reception in a tasteful chalet-style with great attention to detail.
During the 2014/2015 winter season, Michèle and Alain ran Hotel Ambiance with the support of the fabulous Ambiance team. This shared experience increased their awareness and passion for making sure everything is in just the right place.
