We 3, Alexia, Manfred & little Max, welcome you to our website.
Precipitous meadows and hardly accessible woods made the survival on 1.500 m above sea level on the daily life tasks. In the post-war period a whole generation immigrated up to our father Jakob into a "better" life. Only because of the infinite love to„ Hamatl“ Jakob remained at the court. In the mineral water factory "Kaiserwasser" he earned some extra money around the small court in the sunny mountain Innichberg. The way to the workplace and to Candidowas laborious also. Step by step about the old Kirchweg the footpath often also had to be mastered several times daily.
Then in 1972 a court entrance was built by Candido up. Only now Father Jacob saw a real future.
A fresh wind is moving into the old and quite poor farm. Mother Maria was a cook in a prestigious 4-star hotel in Val Badia. The learned has become a passion, she also wanted to continue to live high up in San Candido. As a driving force in the court she animated father Jacob to install a sink for fluent water in the "Gitschenkammer" and the "middle room". Today Room N. 1 + 2. With a lot of idealism she started to rent room to vacationer. At that time (1974) Glinzhof was the only mountain farm in South Tyrol that rented out their rooms.
the children Manfred and Angelika are born. From year to year the Glinzhof is redeveloped and adapted over and over again to the modern claims of the guests. The max. number of 6 guest-rooms was soon reached. Father Jakob falls ill and must die in 2000. Manfred takes over the parental court at the age of 18 years (!). With new swing, a lot of courage and a common sense one awaits on the Glinzhof glittering times.
stable and barn are new built. The agriculture should remain furthermore the foundation of the court. On the roof the first photovoltaic system is installed in San Candido and produces 30 kW of electricity.
will be built above the Glinzhof the small restaurant "Bergstube". Hygienic regulations made cooking in the old farmhouse kitchen impossible.
Installation of a modern wood chip plant to the ecologically friendly power production.
our dear mother Maria passes away after short illness. A shock for the court and many of grown fond guests.
Glinzhof is general-redeveloped. The conservatory on the sunny side has plenty of space and expanded the breakfast room. All electricity and water lines were replaced. A fire alarm system is installed.
