Last Friday after helping to get some hay in for a friend, Dave and I were driving home and noticed the smoke on the horizon. As we got to Tamsweg, the town was full of smoke. We later saw on the news that the biggest hotel in the town, The Gambswirt had a fire in the roof. 300 firemen were in attendance and the fire was out by Saturday morning. It was an electrical fault on the third floor.
The Gambswirt is now a shell, with water damage meaning that the entire insides must be stripped out but the outside must stay the same as it is under ‘Denkmal Schutz’ or cultural protection. So a total rebuild within new walls. Does that make it a fake relic, a new creation or just a relic????
