Zenzi Glatt – the Grand Dame of wellness in Merano
The "Mother" of Park Hotel Mignon and Hotel Adria
Zenzi Glatt is unique. An artist and pioneer. At only 35 years, she opened Pension Mignon in 1948 and thereby laid the base for a real touristic success story.
She always had a good feeling for trends and the special requirements and longings of guests. While Europe was still facing post-war problems, Zenzi Glatt opened up a beauty department in her pension. In 1967 she extended the pension to Park Hotel Mignon, which still is one of the most renowned destinations for wellness holidays in Merano. 15 years later she continued her success story: in 1982 Zenzi Glatt purchased Hotel Adria.
Zenzi Glatt is the soul of Hotel Adria. Together with her daughter Irmgard Amort and her niece Sissi Amort she strives to make and keep the hotel something special. Her marks are visible everywhere in the hotel: for the past 40 years she has drawn colourful and abstract pictures, which decorate the rooms and hallways of Hotel Adria and Hotel Mignon. The profit of each picture that is sold goes to welfare institutions which are important to her.
