A summer on the mountains in a top hiking hotel in South Tyrol
Challenging hiking tours in the clear alpine air, panoramic views of craggy rock faces on sunny summits and the strong summer smell of wild flowers on the alpine pastures: the mountains are practically calling for you to explore them on a hike, on your mountain bike or in full climbing gear.
On the edge of the Antholz Valley, which has farms dotted across it and is the place where the Alpine ibex and the marmot feel at home, the Vierbrunnenhof is the perfect base for active tourists who like a challenge. Hoteliers and hiking guides Thomas and Maria Martha personally accompany their guests to their very own alpine cabin and the most spectacular views in the region. It is fair to say that nobody knows the area as well as these two.
Worn out and back at the hotel, the best ways to replenish your energy are in the wellness area and the restaurant with amazing food by head chef Konrad. He makes sure that only the best produce from the hotel’s own gardens lands on your plate day in, day out.
A winter wonderland with views of the Dolomites
If you think the family-run 3-star superior Hotel Vierbrunnenhof is only worth the trip in summer, you’d be incredibly mistaken. In winter, the hiking hotel in South Tyrol becomes a place of pilgrimage for energetic winter sports enthusiasts, who witness the South Tyrolean mountains’ transformation into a fairytale winter wonderland.
They come to the Antholz Valley for the biathlon, skiing and cross-country skiing. Guests at the Vierbrunnenhof know where the white gold on the mountains glistens the brightest: on winter hiking trails to the snowy alpine pastures followed by a sledding trip down the mountain or on snowshoe hikes on pristine blankets of snow. Ski tours also start on the hotel’s doorstep. Combine this with relaxing evenings in the hotel’s spa for the perfect winter holiday.
