Bëgnodüs – welcome to Hotel Antermoia
Did you know? Here in Val Badia/Gadertal, at the heart of the Dolomites, we speak a different language than in the rest of South Tyrol: Ladin, one of the oldest languages in the Alps! Ladin is also taught in schools and is South Tyrol’s third official language alongside Italian and German. And of course, that means we also uphold ancient and very special traditions that are so fascinating that you simply have to get to know them. You can dive into Ladin history and culture in the Museum Ladin Ciastel de Tor, not far from our hotel. But you’ve already learnt your first word in Ladin: “Bëgnodüs” – welcome!
The history of Hotel Antermoia
Today’s Hotel Antermoia has been located right by the village church for as long as anyone can remember. Once it was a typical farmhouse with an inn and was also home to the only general store in Untermoj. While our great-grandpa was away at war, great-grandma Katherina, who later had to feed nine children as a widow, took care of everything. Of the nine children, only daughter Bia joined her parents’ business. Then, when winter sports became popular in the 60s, Bia’s son Ermanno decided to open during the winter season, too. Thanks to its great success, the guesthouse was gradually extended. In 1980, the annexe was built, which Ermanno’s son Ivo renovated with his wife Michaela in 2002. And that’s how the present Hotel Antermoia was born.
