Worthwhile Vitalpina wellness days in the new Gassenhof

Manfred Volgger, the Gassenhof hotelier, has a vivacious personality and is strikingly active as a host. Offering 4–5 hikes a week, Manfred accompanies his guests personally to Ridnauntal Valley’s best outlook points and most rewarding destinations.
Along the way he shares with them his deep knowledge about nature and spontaneously recounts many stories and anecdotes, just as they come to him. Each hike is thus a truly special experience. The walk to the hotel’s alpine farm, where homemade Kaiserschmarrn pancakes are served, is one of the most popular and pleasant tours offered by a hiking hotel. The Gassenhof has a calendar posted on its homepage that lists all hikes offered during the year.

The Ridnauntal Valley is a bit far removed, lying as if in a Snow White slumber. The history of the silver mine, which has markedly shaped the valley’s evolution, has been recreated today at Ridnaun Mining World. Even above ground, though, nature is exceedingly magical. A thick blanket of snow crystals glistens in the meadows, on the slopes and in the forest. Snowshoeing is particularly delightful at the moment, in the mild air of sunny days. The Gassenhof is ideally located as a base for hiking, ski touring and cross-country tours. You’re surrounded by nature the moment you step outside the front door. And after an exhilarating day in the fresh air, the four-star hotel provides all the amenities of Vitalpina philosophy as well: an ample choice of regional culinary creations, alpine spa treatments and good tips about how to relax and rejuvenate during the day.

Gratzhäusl is particularly appealing: inside this old and very quaint little farmhouse, which even has a granary, the Gassenhof has built an intimate yet delightful restaurant, in addition to some extremely smart suites furnished with natural materials like wood and stone. All rooms have an infrared sauna cabin, and some also have a real wood-burning stove, giving them a truly cozy atmosphere. Gratzhäusl’s cuisine is authentically regional and nicely varied. The Volgger family makes their own marmalade, Speck ham, schnapps, juices, spreads, and many other products. It doesn’t get any fresh than this.

Enjoy spring-like sunny days in South Tyrol and, as your grand winter finale, recharge yourself with fresh Vitalpina power – perhaps by taking spontaneous short break in the Ridnauntal Valley!
