Geschichte Wurmberg-Alm

Wurmberg Alm auf dem Wurmberg

The Wurmberg-Alm has a long tra­di­tion in Braun­lage. Alre­ady in 1952 the first restau­rant by Ursula and Oskar Wesche opened at the sum­mit of the Wurm­berg after the con­struc­tion of the ski jump.

Back then there was only a small dining room in the middle of the jump tower and all the goods had to be car­ried up the moun­tain wit­hout tech­ni­cal aids, since there was no cable car or access road.

Over the years, the guest room was no lon­ger suf­fi­ci­ent for the gro­wing stream of visi­tors, and in 1962 the so cal­led Wurm­berg­baude was built at the foot of the tower.

This loca­tion has steadily increa­sed in the fol­lo­wing deca­des. So when it was taken over by the cur­rent owners in 2008 it was moder­ni­zed and finally rena­med in Wurmberg-Alm.

Today you can find on the Wurmberg-Alm the „Panorama- Stadl“, a fire­place room, a club room, the sun deck- and après ski terrace.

The Wurmberg-Alm opens daily from 9:00 am - 17:00 pm.
