A little preview of the things you should definitely not miss on your holiday in South Tyrol.

View of the Schlern / Sciliar

Our Ritterhof is based right at the foot of the legendary Schlern / Sciliar. The most beautiful hiking route, the most comfortable walk and the panoramic cable car are right on the hotel's doorstep. Although at the beginning you will be beguiled simply by the face of South Tyrol's landmark mountain.

Seiser Alm / Alpe di Siusi

Europe's largest Alpine pasture provides impressive panoramic views. The special holiday experience: explore the unique beauty of the landscape during a hike, a mountain bike ride or by horse-drawn carriage. Enjoy the wonderful tranquillity and fantastic views into the distance.


Shopping trip

Wander through the fruit market in Bozen / Bolzano or stroll under the arcades. Then indulge in a cappuccino with apple strudel on the Piazza and watch the bustling world go by. The display windows present traditional loden clothing and Italian chic as well as young fashion labels.

Hiking with the Ritterhof host

The panoramic view over beautiful pastures and peaks is worth all the effort. The lady of the manor, Hanny, shows you the most stunning corners and serves up a hearty snack during excursions together. Experience South Tyrolean tradition.


Ötzi, the Ice Man

The 5,300 year old glacier mummy was found in Schnalstal in South Tyrol in 1991 and can be seen today at the Archaeological Museum in Bozen / Bolzano. Organised hikes take you to where Ötzi was found.

The Gardens of Trauttmansdorff Castle

Probably South Tyrol's most popular garden is always worth a visit. An impressive botanical garden, a park with alpine and exotic plants and trees, water gardens and terraced gardens as well as the first palm trees south of the Alps can be found here.

Schloss Juval

Reinhold Messner's summer residence. The world famous mountaineer has set up an interactive museum with a unique collection of art and masks. Hike along the Waalweg route to the castle, take a look at the farm and enjoy some refreshments in the restaurant.

South Tyrolean cuisine

In fun-loving South Tyrol where the wine goes down really well and the landscape enchants with a bit of eroticism, we cook fresh dishes typical of the region at the Ritterhof. Experience our range of treats from the kitchen and cellar, the spices and seasonings come from our herb garden.


Soothe the body and soul

Treat yourself to peace, quiet and leisure time cocooned in a fluffy bathrobe. Enjoy being lovingly pampered. Soothe your soul with a relaxing aromatherapy massage or a wonderful facial.



Play golf against the backdrop of the Schlern / Sicliar, right in front of the hotel. 18 holes over 50 hectares, which are seamlessly integrated into the landscape, idyllically situated ponds, flora suitable to local conditions, hilly and sloped areas on long and difficult fairways alternating with easier fairways ... Making your game of golf an absolute dream!
