The property "Untergerald", as our children's hotel is called in this area, was founded in the middle of the 17th century, according to documentary tradition. The residential- and farmhouse was built in 1877. In 1902 our great-grandfather acquired the whole building due to successful cattle and horse breeding. Until the beginning of the fifties, the Ramsbacher family lived on the income from agriculture, forestry and beekeeping. The family ran a water-powered sawmill, selling saw wood, and a corn mill.

Putting the focus on "farm holidays", the house was gradually expanded. In 1962 the guest house and the first swimming pool were built and the old farm building was renovated. In 1971 all the rooms were equipped with cold and hot running water, a shower and a toilet. In the years 1976/77 the general reconstruction followed, it was done in the West Carinthian style with future-oriented guest rooms, dining and social rooms. The farm was and is an enrichment for our holiday guests.

The future years saw increased investment in quality and the expansion of additional services

1990 Expansion of the children's playground with fairytale forest, robber’s huts and witch's cottage. The adventure gorge was opened up and made accessible.

1992 Renewal of the drinking and fire extinguishing water supply, and relocation of the car park to the rear of the main building. Building the football field required the removal of 4,000 m³ of soil. 1993/94 Construction of the recreation room and the sports hall (120 m²).

Since we live in an area with guaranteed snow, right in the middle of the well-known winter sports centre "Skiarena Nassfeld", our house is also ideal for a winter holiday. The "Millennium-Express" gondola lift holds 15 seats and takes you right up to the Sonnenalpe Nassfeld. Ramsi-Skischule: downhill deamons, listen up! Learn how to ski right next door to the hotel, at the 3,000 m² artificially snowed Ramsi-Skischool (2 Wonder Carpets).

In 2008 the Ramsbacher family undertook the biggest structural measures: construction of 20 apartments, using local larch wood. Each room equipped with balconies/terraces southwards, spacious bathrooms, with bathtub and shower. Complete redesign of the hotel’s layout: new dining areas, an elevator, modern kitchen furnishing, a fitness room, a gaming area for adults/adolescents to play billiards, new areas for the children's club, new panorama terrace with view of the Carnic Alps, two chill-out areas, rustic outdoor sauna hut with panorama view, massage-and beauty parlor, go-kart track, indoor sand-sludge-mud area, bouncy castle, trampoline etc.
