The Pichler Family and Hotel Staff
Hospitality and a family atmosphere at the Apple Hotel Torgglerhof
To members of our staff, this isn’t just an ordinary job but more of a vocation. The Pichler Family welcomes its guests with the warmth and friendliness typical of the Passeier Valley. Sepp Pichler, owner and chief host at the Torgglerhof, is at the centre of it all and performs a variety of roles. Always game for a chat and a joke, he can be seen in the guise of porter, gardener or waiter. His wife Mali accompanies guests on tours of the Passeier Valley while their son, Martin, is in charge of the dining room and is busy in the development of a new recipe for a sparkling apple wine. His sister, Maria, runs the entrance hall and is in charge of welcoming guests at the reception. Christian, Maria’s partner, is the undisputed head of the kitchen, his platters winning over even the most demanding palates. Johannes, the youngest in the family, is still at school although we couldn’t do without his help in the dining room during the summer high season.
