Besides all of the chronological information it should be mentioned that from the very beginning the Fuchs family have dedicated themselves and contributed effort to developing Toblach as a holiday destination. An example is Hans Fuchs’ role as co-initiator of the first ski-lift facilities at Ratsberg and Rienz and as co-founder of the Toblach hockey club. He continues to sit on the board of the Toblach Tourist Association to this day.
