On May 15, 2015, we celebrated our 50th anniversary. Reason enough for our guests and those who want to be, to give a brief historical insight into the history of our pension!
Wedding of Johann Hassler sen., Trained mason, geb. 1939 and Annemarie Weiß, trained confectioner, born. 1942. One day after the wedding, the construction of the coffee house in Mar Anger began.
Hannes is born in June.
In November, Annemarie takes her master exam.
On May 15, the coffee-pastry-bed and breakfast pension will be opened. Six guest rooms with shared shower on the 1st floor were available – the price of the pension: 23 shillings.
