Your Your "mineworkers"

Your "mineworkers"

Your "mineworkers"

In a strong team, it depends on each and every individual. A good team moves mountains!

Like the mineworkers, our employees come from the most diverse regions or countries. We therefore all know what the saying means "It's good to be a guest - it's better to come home". And we find it most beautiful when you, dear guests, come home to us. We all pursue the same goal: together we want to make your stay with us perfect.

  • Some partners, close to our heart


I am Fernando Michlig and I grew up in the Tenne. Some of our guests already knew me when I was as small as our Amilia is today. :-)

After my years of travel, I joined the family buisness in 2008 and am happy to spoil you today with my culinary creations. Do you particularly like a dish? Ask me, I might be able to tell you the recipe...


My name is Luzia Michlig and I'm almost not allowed to say it, I'm a "Grüezi" because I come from the beautiful Seetal. Luckily I have learned to love a cook, because I can't cook at all ;-) But I didn't just fall in love with a Valaisan, I also fell in love with the Valais and have now been at home here since 2014.

I look forward to welcoming and spoiling you dear guests together with my family and our great team.


My name is Amilia Michlig and I have been at the Tenne since 22 April 2021. As everyone's little darling...

My job is to enchant the guests with my charming smile and at the moment I am also responsible for the fact that with us "No Food Waste" can only be implemented to a limited extent...


My name is Augusto Cardoso Correia and I have been working at the Tenne since December 2020.

My passion? Quite clearly: wine. Not only do I like to drink it, but I also work actively in the vines and in the cellar of the Diroso winery. I proudly share my knowledge with my guests and am happy to recommend wines to them.


My name is Caroline Michlig and I opened the Tenne together with my husband Ewald in December 1976.

As the "Nonna" of the house, I am happy to be a helpful support in various areas: In looking after Amilia, in service or still as a hostess for you, dear guests. :-) In my free time I like to golf and I can therefore warmly recommend the golf course "Source du Rhône".


My name is Christoph Kummer and I have been working at the Tenne since 2006, spoiling our guests with culinary delights. I am Fernando's right-hand man - we have been working together for so long that we understand each other almost without words.

My hobbies are mountain biking, skiing and cross-country skiing, so I spend a lot of time outdoors with my family. While doing so, I like to take photos - some of my pictures are hanging in the Tenne and you can also buy them. :-)


I am Daniel Tesfay and I come from Eritrea. I have been working here in the kitchen since 2020. At first, I worked mainly in the office, but the longer I work here, the more you'll find me in the position of the gardemanger. I like it very much and I am proud to prepare beautiful plates for you, dear guests.

Elias - and his team

Elias Imfeld and his team at Gommer Sport in Ulrichen will look after you with heart and soul, passion and experience. Their aim is for you to be happier after your visit to Goms than before. That's why their credo is "With heart". And they will also bring hire equipment directly to the hotel...


My name is Elisabetta Pappalardo and I have been part of the Tenne team since December 2022. Besides my duties in the service, I am responsible for teaching Amilia a few words of Italian. At the moment, the success is not yet so great ;-) she first says "Ciao bella, a dopo"...

In my free time I love to ride my motorbike and I am looking forward to ride over the nearby alpine passes in summer. Only flying is even more beautiful...


My name is Ewald Michlig and I opened the Tenne built by my father in 1976 and ran it together with my wife. In the meantime, I'm taking it a little easier as "Nonno". But I am always happy to welcome you, dear guests, to an aperitif in the wine cellar and to introduce you to the diversity of Valais wines.

When I'm not at the Tenne, you can often find me in my hunting grounds in the Black Forest, from where I supply Fernando as often as possible with game from my own hunting... :-)


We get our eggs from the laying hens of the Salzmann family from Naters. Eggs fresh from the farm! Gerhard Salzmann brings them personally every week and he also has his own chair in our restaurant. It says: Everyone knows that an egg is healthy and fortifying. 
Silvio is the third generation to work at the Salzmann poultry farm, and if necessary, the other family members Rita (mother), Michael and Marco can always be counted on.


My name is Henriett Todoruc and I am originally from Hungary. I have been working as a housekeeping employee in the Tenne team since 2020. I am responsible for the cleanliness in the house and with my eye for detail I recognise the little things that make a big difference for our guests. Do you have a wish or a request? I will gladly try to fulfil it...

What else can I say about myself? I am a happy woman and love nature and dogs.

Isabella & Stéphane

Isabella & Stéphane Kellenberger from the Vin d'oeuvre winery in Leuk Stadt are happy to share their passion... because it comes bottled, in white and red, contemporary or more traditional, immediately enjoyable or storable - tailored to a variety of tastes. The two of them produce 17 different wines from autochthonous and international grapes. Their common strengths lie in the breadth of their individual professional experience, their different interests, as well as in the contrast of their personal traits, which nevertheless harmonise perfectly, just like a good wine. The two of them are great! :-)


My name is Luana Grasso and I have been working at the Tenne since the 2023 summer season. Many guests probably thought Roberta had a new hairstyle... But no, I'm her twin sister. :-)

On this photo you can see me on my first day at work - together with Elisabetta, my sister's partner.


I am Lucie Schmidt. I have lived in the beautiful Goms since I was born. In my free time, I like to go on excursions and am always ready for something new. Also here at the Tenne, where I will be doing my apprenticeship as a catering specialist from summer 2023.

Nadia & Diego

We have wines from many great winemakers on our menu. We maintain personal contact with many of them, and with some we even have a friendship. For example, with Nadia & Diego Mathier, from the Winery Adrian & Diego Mathier, Nouveau Salquenen AG in Salgesch. Passion for wine and emotion - in our opinion, that's what describes them very well. We are very happy to bring their wines closer to our guests.


My name is Petra Walther and I have been working in the kitchen since July 2022. I am therefore the newest member of the team.

In my free time, I like to be out in nature and animal welfare is very close to my heart. When travelling, I am magically attracted to big cities, which is why I now like to work "in the city"! ;-) Because the inhabitants of Gluringen are popularly called "city dwellers".


My name is Rita Gonçalves Teixeira. I started my apprenticeship as a cook at the Tenne in July 2023.

In my free time I like to take photos and go for walks with my dog Pluto.


My name is Roberta Grasso and I have been part of the Tenne team since the 2022 winter season. I work in the kitchen and learn a little more German every day - and all the other staff members learn a little Italian at the same time... ;-)

Besides my partner Elisabetta, who also works here at the Tenne, I have another great love: our Labrador Diego. And what also has to be said: Forze Juventus Turin!


We have our own blueberry supplier! :-) Robert Wyden always supplies us with fresh Gommer blueberries in summer.
Talk to him about it in the morning over coffee at the regulars' table - who knows, maybe he'll tell you a place where you can find the fine berries...


My name is Ruth Lagger and I have been working at the Tenne since 2012. I am originally from the Zurich Oberland and came to Goms in 1977 because of love. Together with my husband, I ran the Walliserhof in Münster for 30 years.

My motto is "the guest is king" and I would like to convey this feeling to every guest - including you :-) I look forward to your visit...


My name is Sandra Blatter and I worked for Caroline and Ewald in the Tenne from December 1988 to 1998. I am married and have two boys. In the meantime, I have been back at the Tenne since 2012 and take great pleasure in presenting the beautiful plates from our kitchen team.

My hobbies are walking and light hiking - and shopping... :-) In winter, I prefer to be on the winter hiking trails rather than on the cross-country trails.


Thomas not only massages our guests, he also pampers us with massages that promote blood circulation, loosen muscles or relieve stiffness... Thomas Imhasly is a medical masseur with a federal certificate and offers massages directly at our hotel.


My name is Ursula Ehrenzweig. I am retired, but have worked in housekeeping at the Tenne since 1996. I live right next door to the hotel, so I'm still on hand whenever I'm needed.

My excursion tip for you here in Goms, whether in winter or in summer: Hike up to the Hungerberg, there you have the best view over the whole valley...
