FalknerpromenadeHans Norman Falkner (1906 – 1988), born in Gurgl in the Ötztaler Alps, is held in high estimation by the inhabitants of his adopted place of residence Dorf Tirol. He was the one who financed the renovation of the church organ and who initiated in 1972/73 the construction of a comfortable footpath to Tirol Castle leading from the petrol station to the “Doss” viewpoint. The beautiful promenade which offers an amazing panoramic view was named after Hans Norman Falkner in recognition of the fact that he privately financed the entire construction project. In 1988, the year of this death, his monument was erected on the promenade.
