Family-run since 1929
The Gasthaus Laserz was built between 1927 and 1929 by Aloisia and Josef Amort. In the summer of 1929 was opening. The location for the house was chosen deliberately, because the paths to Ulrichsbichl and Tristacher See lead right past it. For the time being, the inn was only open in the summer, from 1936 was then managed year-round.
Laserz - the mountain range in the Lienz Dolomites
The love of the mountains allowed Josef Amort to choose the name "Laserz". The name "Laserz" comes from a mountain range in the Lienz Dolomites. Josef had previously worked with his wife Aloisia the Karlovy Vary hut. On the footpath between Laserz and Karlsbader Hütte, a spot for a new hut was sought at his favorite resting place. In 1936, the Dolomites hut was built there. After initial difficulties, the hut could only be cultivated in winter and - with much patience and persuasiveness with the authorities - then in the summer.
Tenant of the Glocknerhaus
In 1950, Josef Amort and his son Albert leased the Glocknerhaus of the ÖAV, section Klagenfurt, on the Franz-Josefs-Höhe. The family remained until 1998 tenants of the Glocknerhauses.
The next generation of Pension Laserz
Albert Amort and his wife Helene (born Gruber of the Hotel Defreggerhof on the pass Iselsberg) took over the Pension Laserz in 1972, renovated extensively and with foresight with indoor pool and tennis court.
Astrid Koller (née Amort) took over the hotel in 1989. With her husband Alois she leads the house in the third generation. The hotel was and is always adapted to the diverse needs of guests, so it always stays up to date.
Today, the hotel blends state-of-the-art comfort with traditional hospitality to create a special holiday experience.
