In 1905 they acquired the small hotel Rössle in Galtür, which they managed successfully thereafter. The couple had four children: Adolf, Franz, Angela, and Ida. In the early 1920s, the family acquired another small hotel, the Alpenhaus Fluchthorn, the management of which Adolf Türtscher took on, while the Rössle was transferred to Franz.
