1972/1973 - Reconstruction of the 1st and 2nd floors as well as the attic floor created a total of 33 hotel rooms. In addition, an indoor swimming pool and sauna were constructed. Mr. Entner also established a new restaurant for the hotel guests. At this time the rooms that today are the Antonius â€śStubeâ€ť and Pfandler â€śStubeâ€ť were constructed.
