In 1740, this protected panoramic location at an altitude of 1,160m, was already known as a hospitable place to live in. The first written reference to the Gnollhof, which was then registered as Gnallguet, dates from this time. Almost a hundred years later, in 1851, the farm came into the possession of the Verginer family, the great-great-great-grandparents of today’s hosts, Margit and Peter. In 1888, the owners decided to open the farm to guests: The Gnollhof inn was established. Soon the word spread about the opening of the inn and day trippers from the surrounding area came to enjoy homemade dishes: Among them were many illustrious guests of ‘Bad Froy’, the former spa.
