Titanic Coming soon

We are rebuilding the former barrack from 1912 to become a modern mountain lodge. Here comes accommodation, meeting room and café. The house was built in 1912, the same year as the famous Titanic ship sank in the Atlantic Ocean on its way from the UK to New York - hence the name Titanic.
