"You MUST stay here!"

This was by far the best hotel experience I have ever had. You feel like family the minute you walk in the door and Andreas greets you. The rooms are lovely, the food is fantastic and the location is perfect. The details in the decorations throughout the hotel are exquisite. We spent 4 nights here and looked forward to coming back from our day trips each evening to sit outside and have a few drinks and enjoy Andreas sense of humor. We were very sad to leave and know we will return one day--this is a very special place.

Vilpian and the transalp bike race

Thursday, July 24, 2014, the program of the fifth leg of the bike tour, "Transalp" starts from Sarnthein and crosses Mölten, Vilpian, Nals, Sirmian, and St. Apollonia to eventually get to Kaltern.
Cyclists coming from Mölten through the Farm Scholer and Planatsch will arrive to Vilpian. From the ex-Schlemmer, along the main road, they will arrive at Hotel Sparerhof continuing to Nals.
For this reason, some road sections will suffer deviations between 10:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. and Vilpian, for a short time (half an hour is expected, probably between the hours of 10 to 10.30) traffic will be blocked to allow 1,000 mountain bikers to pass through the city.
We await our guests for a drink with a glass of Terlaner at 9:30 a.m. punctual!
Stay tuned!

A little adventure

River Boating

A special thanks goes to Hagen Tschörner who invited me, and all the members of the Tourist Board Terlan, to participate in a truly unusual experience: inland waterways (River Boating).
The experience, doable for everyone, is organized into all the details, including travel, clothing and paying particular attention to safety.
After you have browsed the net, you will definitely want to try out the navigation on the river!
Stay tuned ...

Ships, aircrafts and Paris Hilton
Amsterdam, "sign-on" of May 31, 1985

The owner of the cruise ship used to offer the crew a night (the one before departure from the port) in an at least 4-star hotel.

So it was not in the case of "sign-on" in Amsterdam as the carrying capacity of the city was almost entirely depleted by a concurrent exhibition of great attraction.

Finding accommodation for a crew change for more than 400 people was by no means an easy undertaking, resolved with the rental of a warehouse of the civil protection, along the harbor.

Instead of 4 stars, the shed was equipped with 4 showers (which should be enough for all 400 people) and camp cots as beds: mine was no. 265.

My bed neighbor next to me introduced himself: "I'm from Canada", he said, "and only on the first engagement." I was on the third. I asked him what duties he had. Deck Stewart.
But I was Stewart, a role more important than his. Finally I asked him what he had studied or his previous experiences:

I am an aeronautical engineer, said Chris; (Oh yeah? And then I am the brother of Paris Hilton, I thought ...)
A couple of months after our departure from the port of Amsterdam, Chris and his partner at the time (also stewardess on the ship) abandoned the ship in Athens, resigning from office.

For many years I have not heard from Chris, until one day, in Innsbruck, met him by chance while he was there to treat the sale of a Dash aircraft.

The travels of Chris had first brought him to India and then to Australia, where he met his life partner Silvie. However, since Australia was also too small, Silvie and Chris moved to Switzerland ...!

Last June, Chris and Sylvie gave us a short visit for a refreshing cappuccino and coffee after a bicycle tour in South Tyrol ...

Chris is Director of the Swiss headquarters of a multinational in the aviation industry.

I, however, am not the brother of Paris Hilton ....
Stay tuned!

Pit stop on Claudia Augusta way
Culinary stop in Vilpian on the Claudia Augusta way

2000 years Via Claudia Augusta, 700 kilometers from Donauwörth to Quarto Altino; and Algund lies exactly in the center: a reason to celebrate.

Therefore, the Raiffeisen Amateur Sports Club Algund invited to a seven-day bike ride; supported by the municipality and the tourism office Algund, 26 participants have made ​​their way.
The first application came promptly from the mayor himself, Ulrich Gamper. He then invited the mayors along the connection from the Roman period to accompany the group for a day; Algund to Salurn. The invitation was accepted among others by Member of Parliament Oswald Schiefer, the mayor of Truden Edmund Lanziner and Mayor Monika Delvai from Montan.
For a surprise on the bike path the pit stop in Vilpian was elected. HGV local chairman Andreas Sparer and the President of the Tourism Agency Terlan Lisi Visintainer wanted to make sure to spoil the cyclists in person in the name of asparagus hosts and the tourist office: with Asparagus Wine from the Terlan winery, Speck from Mair butcher, Margarete asparagus and juices. Strengthened, the group again made good things on the way to reach the milestone Salurn.

From tiles to spirits!

One of our long-standing supplier of tiles and tiling, after many years of working around construction sites, he decided to devote himself completely to another thing you can do just as well but that certainly gives him more satisfaction.

With pears from his garden, with nuts of his parents, neighbors with raspberries and of course with apples, in the land of apples, Ulrich Huez, with its stills and passion, produces a selection of grappa of great charm.

And at Sparerhof, with as much passion and satisfaction, we offer products of the distillery and serve "Pergola", from nearby Gargazzone between drinks "spirits" most appreciated by our customers.

Stay tuned!
