The hotel “Schwarze Adler” was built by Empress Maria Theresia. Previously, in the region the Knights of Saint-John established an inn named “zum Schwarzen Adler” in the city of Saint Anton in Tyrol, Austria. The development of the mass tourism dated back from the year 1880 with the opening of the railway. The Schwarze Adler belongs since 1885 to the same family: the Tschol.
The design of the hotel label “St.Anton am Arlberg 1300m, Tirol, Austria / Hotel Schwarzer Adler, Besitzer: Karl Tschol” can be attributed to H.C.Berann. His signature can been seen at the bottom part of the label, just above the letter ‘B’ of the word “Besitzer”.
