More than one hundred years ago the foundations for today’s Wagner Hütte, 1,446 metres above sea level, about four kilometres from the Mooserkreuz, were laid. For the construction of the railway tunnels suitable ventilation was necessary. The ventilation was operated with the water power generated at the Rosanna power station. So, a building for housing the attendants, next to the water intake was built – on the spot of today’s Wagner Hütte. Just a few years after the railway construction, Ing. Carl Wagner received the building from the municipality and rebuilt it to a hunting lodge. At that time, it was called Wagner Hütte for the first time. In memory of the honoured citizen of St. Anton am Arlberg, the inn bears this name again today. Already in the twenties of the last century the building was used as an inn and that is the way it has stayed almost all the time up until now.
