...and has already found its first victim: A bus did not move on the lane that had not yet been snow cleared.

In the face of #Iorestoacasa, or #stayathome, the concierge had the opportunity to take his "old" camera, a Canon EOS 400D, out of the closet and deliver these quick shots to you. Even though the camera is heavy, and the memory card has the size and weight of the latest generation of mobile phones, the photos are still impressive.
Don't worry. These pictures won’t be the last ones you see from here.
Apples, apples, apples. Apples everywhere. Speaking of apples: Since there are no guests around these days, the apples, which are usually given as small presents, have to be processed.
What do you do with apples? Strudel? No, the apples have to be eaten immediately. Apple fritters? No, they're only really delicious when they're hot. Apple juice? No, our neighbour’s been making apple juice for quite some time now and better than we will ever be at it.
What to do with so many apples?
The official partner of BMW motorcycles from Thailand visited us during their Enduro tour.
The staff of BMW Thailand, with lots of fans following them, visited some of the most scenic parts of South Tyrol. Some of the highlights are certainly the visit to a local glacier, where the riders from hotter and more humid climates touched fresh snow for the first time in their lives.

The perfect time to leap into the pool! But be warned!
The ground may be slippery when wet, even the more seasoned pool divers should be careful not to spend such beautiful weather in the hospital!
It’s best to enjoy these hot afternoons from the inside of our swimming pool.
One of our longstanding clients has a stand at the „Interpoma“ exposition in Bolzano, that attracts visitors from all over the world.
Interpoma focuses on the apple, from its cultivation to its conservation to its marketing.
It is a unique event for this economic sector in the whole world. The exposition’s goal is to represent and showcase the innerworkings of the apple industry, starting from the cultivation to the methods of conservation and storage, the marketing and distribution, to the general and international public.
The exposition is structured to show the various apple varieties and strains, the newest technological advancements from new machines to harvest methods.
Interpoma isn’t solely a giant showcase for apples but also an important place for networking and discussion.
Our client didn’t just want “a” stand, he wanted it to be surrounded by flowers and fruits, of course the apple wasn’t to be missing. We are surrounded by apples, not only by apple fields in the literary sense, but also by works of art throughout our hotel. This outstanding fruit is a part of our regions culture and therefore a piece of us.
The Merano florist Gutweniger Stefan does it all, everybody’s happy, your Concierge, and most importantly, the client.
Ischia, hot weather and vespas, all the ingredients for an Italian summer at the Sparerhof! After crossing the Brenner and the passo Giovo by vespa, stopping for a refreshing drink is a must before continuing southwards.
Beautiful vintage colours, the vespa never falls out of fashion, together with Napoli, Ischia and Positano.
Good travels, the concierge awaits your return.
