A holiday combining adventures in the Dolomites and idyllic country life
A holiday at the gateway to the Dolomites, surrounded by the Gitschberg-Jochtal alpine region, in the heart of South Tyrol’s most wonderful scenery. Simply set off and discover the region’s incredible diversity. Always one step ahead. There’s a new adventure around every bend. Whether it’s the Dolomites, Fundres/Pfunderer mountains, Plan de Corones/Kronplatz or Gitschberg-Jochtal – one thing is definite: a holiday at our hotel in Val Pusteria/Pustertal is an experience. New discoveries await you every day. New trails, new views, new breathtaking active moments on holiday in the Dolomites – a UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site.
Pure summer – holiday, Dolomites, adventure
Our hotel is not far from the Dolomites in South Tyrol, very close to the Gitschberg-Jochtal alpine region and just a stone’s throw away from the Plan de Corones/Kronplatz panoramic mountain. Anyone opting for a holiday in the Dolomites, can look forward to pure adventure in barren rocky landscapes, to lush green alpine pastures in front of rugged peaks and to fantastic indulgence and enjoyment in mountain huts. The numerous trails that wind through the Dolomites UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site are perfect for hiking and mountain biking and the pass roads are extremely popular with motorbike fans. Families love the leisurely alpine pasture trails in the Gitschberg-Jochtal region. You will love the adventures on offer and the views all the more!
Yes, we cannot deny, a holiday and the Dolomites panorama simply belong together here. Ideally you should enjoy this unique view with a paragliding flight from the Plan de Corones/Kronplatz peak or from Rodengo/Rodeneck where you float over green Val Pusteria/Pustertal for once. Or head up towards the sky on the giant Skyscraper swing on Plan de Corones/Kronplatz. There are countless opportunities for you to savour summer to the full in South Tyrol. Anyone who prefers things a bit more leisurely can lean back and relax at Alpinpool Maranza/Meransen – admission is free for guests at Hotel Lodenwirt. Speaking of free: You enjoy the summer twice as much with the Almencard PLUS!
A winter activity holiday in the Dolomites and beyond
A winter straight out of a picture book with plenty of snow and adventures. The Lodenwirt’s location gets sporty pulses racing as you can reach South Tyrol’s most wonderful ski and winter sports areas in no time at all. South Tyrol’s no. 1 skiing mountain, Plan de Corones/Kronplatz, is paradise for ski beginners and pros, snowboarders, telemark skiers and freestylers. The Gitschberg-Jochtal ski region is considered to be an extremely family-friendly ski area and surprises with its incredible panorama. Both Plan de Corones/Kronplatz and the Gitschberg-Jochtal ski region belong to the world's largest skiing network, the Dolomiti Superski. You can ski twelve ski areas with just one ski pass during your holiday in the Dolomites.
Cross-country skiing and ski tours are of course also extremely popular on holiday in the Dolomites. On the other hand, you can discover the quiet side of winter by winter hiking and snowshoeing through magically sparkly landscapes. This kind of hike can be combined wonderfully with a toboggan run at the end.
A cultural holiday in the Dolomites
Besides all the sport on offer there is also a fantastic range of culture on offer in Val Pusteria/Pustertal that you definitely should not miss out on. Combine your holiday in the Dolomites with a visit to see Ötzi, the glacier mummy in Bolzano/Bozen or the imposing Castello di Tures/Burg Taufers in Valle di Tures ed Aurina/Tauferer Ahrntal. Immerse yourself in the world of healing herbs at the traditional Bergila business and find out why you simply have to fall in love with the majestic mountains on holiday in the Dolomites at the Messner Mountain Museums in Brunico/Bruneck and on the Plan de Corones/Kronplatz. The unique loden museum in Vandoies/Vintl is literally on your hotel doorstep and the small towns of Brunico/Bruneck and Bressanone/Brixen with their picturesque lanes and buildings, modern shops and inviting cafés are all definitely worth a visit. You can also look forward to colourful events on your holiday in the Dolomites, from the theatre to traditional festivals, exhibitions and concerts. By the way, the latter often take place at the hotel and in Lodenwirt restaurant too. Read more about it in our “What’s new?” section.
