Local Guide

Worth getting out of bed for

  • The hiking trails wind their way over 450 km across the Dolomites, through pastures and expansive valleys and right up to the white summits. The possibilities for mountain trekking are almost infinite and all of them are just one step away from the hotel. These include walks to the famous Three Peaks or Langkofel mountains and high mountain trails running along the edge of the forest, connecting one mountain hut to another.

Good to know

  • At the Hotel Tyrol, creativity is not just limited to the kitchen. The love and appreciation of art has always played a prominent role in their family and various artworks such as drawings, paintings and sculptures lend our rooms a special atmosphere. Many of these are the work of the senior owner, Oswald Senoner, who in over 40 years created paintings and sculptures in wood as well as in bronze.

Slow Living

  • In an ever-faster world, there is increasing desire for authenticity and sustainability also affecting what we eat and drink. Thanks to independent hydroelectric power generation, the hotel produces its own electricity, rendering them completely self-sufficient for all their energy needs.
  • Ecological sustainability and local sourcing of ingredients and other products are prioritised. These include woollen by-products of local Villnösser Brillenschaft ‘bespectacled sheep’.
  • However, it is mostly in the kitchen that this choice is exercised. The ingredients in the dishes are almost exclusively sourced from regional suppliers and, whenever possible, are organically farmed. The vegetables they use are cultivated in the valley. The beef is sourced from some 15 farmers who breed the Grey Alpine cattle only in Villnösstal Valley.

When to go there

  • The Dolomites are an all year round destination. Visit in the summer months to experience the beautiful South Tyrolean summer.
