Sadly the hospice and the church both burnt down to their foundation walls in 1957 shortly after their restoration. Arnold Ganahl had the hospice rebuilt and only two years later, in 1959, it was reopened in all its glory. The hospice, with the traditional steep roof, was at this time the most modern and attractive hotel in Arlberg. It was the trigger which started Arlberg's ascendancy to a skiing region with the most inviting and comfortable of hotels. In 1997 Florian Werner took over the family business. In winter 2004 a generous sport and wellness facility was opened over an area of around 2,000 m².

Guests can enjoy back therapies, a large cardio area, a hairdresser, beauty treatments, massage rooms, a large sauna facility with a Finnish sauna and steam room, and kneipp cures. Relaxation rooms (some equipped with fireplaces) with a view of the mountainous landscape, a swimming pool and whirlpool all add to the facilities on offer. Heating and regulation technology is installed throughout the entire facility. This includes panel heating. Approx. 1,000 m² of Uponor Tecto was installed in the new building.

The system can be installed quickly, easily and securely in a one-man installation process. The Uponor Velta PE-Xa pipe is simply pressed into the Tecto Element using the foot. The Arlberg Hospice Hotel is also optimally laid out for large events. Thus the traditional, international Uponor conference - 27.03. to 03.04.04 - took place once again this year in Arlberg. For the past 26 years the trends within the heating and air-conditioning industry have been at the heart of the conference. Issues are analysed, commentated and, most importantly, advanced by high-ranking experts.

The engineering experts this year included qualified architect Hadi Teherani (BRT Architekten BDA Bothe Richter Teherani, Hamburg) as well as Prof. Dr-Ing. Bjarne W. Olesen (Laboratory of Indoor Environment and Energy Department of Energy Engineering Technical University of Denmark, Lyngby).
