Parallel to this Anneliese and Otto Hauser, always remaining true to their second passion, organizing the national tours of Holiday on Ice in the cities of Geneva, Lausanne, Bern, Basel & Zurich for 15 years as an impresario (promoter).

With the start of planning for the Swiss Alp Resort 1999 the expansion of the hotel was carried out until 2008. The residence, 8 chalets with a total of 37 units, three large underground garages and a ballroom were built. At the same time the entire infrastructure of the hotel was renewed. A total of 55 million SFr. was invested.

Since 2014 the Romantik Hotel Schweizerhof is a 5 star hotel. The hotel and the Swiss Alp Resort are run as a yearly operation and enjoy a great success.
