Welcome to my world

As a hostess, I love to take care of you personally and give you individual tips about my world, or better yet: our homeland. On this page, I have summarised some worthwhile excursion destinations in Val Venosta/Vinschgau, active ideas, and experiences for you. I look forward to advising you personally at the hotel!

 

Excursions in Val Venosta/Vinschgau

  • Lago di Resia/Reschensee lake– the church tower in the water is a popular photo op and the place has a fascinating history
  • Abbey of Marienberg – in the Benedictine abbey above Malles/Mals, there is also a museum
  • Coira/Churburg castle in Sluderno/Schluderns – one of the most well-preserved castles in South Tyrol with a large collection of armour
  • Messner Mountain Museum Ortles/Ortler – the underground museum of mountaineering legend Reinhold Messner is dedicated to the topic of ice
  • Glorenza/Glurns – a small town with a completely preserved medieval town wall

Winter experiences

  • Tobogganing with the family, with friends, or alone – fun is guaranteed; tip: the toboggan run Plantapatsch in Watles
  • Cross-country skiing on the frozen Lago di Resia/Reschensee lake – a great alternative to the Slingia Nordic Ski Center
  • Snowpark in Watles for freestylers
  • The “Zusslrennen” – a tradition in Prato allo Stevio/Prad am Stilfserjoch, where people say farewell to winter during the carnival season; people from Vezzano/Vetzan to Alta Val Venosta/Obervinschgau have similar plans for the so-called “Scheibenschlagen”.

 

Summer highlights

  • Ortler Bike Marathon and Stilfserjoch/Stelvio Marathon – by bike or by foot – push your limits
  • Marble and apricots – the feast of pleasure and artists in Lasa/Laas, dedicated to typical products of Val Venosta/Vinschgau; marble tours are also regularly offered in Lasa/Laas
  • South Tyrolean knight’s tournament in Sluderno/Schluderns – a spectacle for medieval fans, jugglers, and warriors
  • Bunker tour at the Vallo Alpino/Alpenwall – you will encounter historic buildings from the interwar period during a hike
