Two tracks starting from the hotel, suitable for a small run before the breakfast: Map.
For those who like to take an easy hike in the heights, we suggest taking the funicular (located within walkingdistance from the hotel), which takes our guests to Mölten and overlooks the Etsch Valley from the Tschöggelberg. There are numerous hiking trails, both in the valley and up in the mountains, which can be enjoyed by bike or by hiking.
The famous 'Knottenkino' (lit.: Stone cinema) near Vöran offers its visitors a marvellous sight of the upper Etsch Valley and the mountains around Merano. To reach this cinema offered by nature, our guests may undertake a simple and well-developed hiking trail.
Only a 15 minutes drive away you will find one of the most beautiful and latest golf-courses of South Tyrol, the Brandis Golf Course in Lana, a fantastic 9-hole course in the middle of fruit and wine plantations.
MUSEUMS and SIGHTSEEING
The visit of the famous 'Ötzi' exhibited in his museum in the heart of Bolzano can very well be combined with a stroll under the 'Lauben' of the city.
Merano, the world-famous city of spas with tradition is a short half hour away and is waiting to be explored, strolled through or simply enjoyed for a few hours or longer.
A must in the Merano area are the blooming gardens of Trauttmansdorf Castle which stretch across a sunny slope above the city. Ancient plants like olives, lemons, grape-vine, cypresses and lavender grow together in the gardens. Footpaths wind up the slope and vistas open up to the surrounding mountains, while a desert breeze wafts across from the nearby hill of cacti and succulents. The Trauttmansdorf castle is located in the center of the garden. A place where the Empress Elizabeth once liked to promenade and even spent two seasonal stays. Nowadays, the castle hosts the Tyrolean Tourism Museum and displays 200 years of tourism history.
