History of Gampe Thaya

“Thaya” means one-room-hut. In the past, humans and animals lived together in one hut. Years ago Gampe Thaya was a summer residence of the owner family Riml. The animals and the family stayed in the mountains during the summer, to do the works on the fields.

Gampe Thaya nowadays

The Gampe Thaya mountain hut in Sölden is now a popular meeting point for mountain lovers. The dishes are prepared freshly every day and are made with only the very best ingredients from the region. Guests, who are looking for silence, natural food and real Tyrolean hospitality, will have a great time at Gampe Thaya.

The mission of family Prantl

Family Prantl is grown up on their farm in Zwieselstein. It was always a mission of Jakob to bring Tyrolean specialities to the guests of Sölden. Guests, who were looking for French fries or Coca Cola weren’t right on this mountain hut. Hot chocolate made with milk from the cows is served.
