Breathing in the fresh mountain air, listening to the birds singing, and soaking up the sun. With all the stress of everyday life, we often forget to take enough time for ourselves.
A vacation surrounded by nature can be just the thing to recharge your batteries. But, if you’re in Europe, there’s no need to get on a plane or sit in a car for hours. Our insider tip for weekend trips, excursions, and vacations: South Tyrol!
Let your mind wander
Sleep well, enjoy culinary delights, and pamper yourself – South Tyrol combines the charm of the mountains with the Italian lifestyle.
If you don’t want to spend the whole day relaxing in the Acquapura Spa or other spas of the region, you’ll definitely want to make a trip to one of the lovely towns in South Tyrol . The provincial capital Bolzano is a prime example of the fusion of Austrian and Italian cultures and is perfect for a day trip.
The quaint old town offers many shopping opportunities, rich cultural offerings, and many historic places to discover. It’s best to explore the vibrant center of South Tyrol on your own or to take part in a city tour to get to know even more culture.
Looking for an active break?
Attention athletes! If the idea of just relaxing while on vacation is too boring, South Tyrol is the place for you. The Dolomites are characterized by mild mountain regions that are suitable for hiking and mountain biking tours, as well as steep, rocky mountain walls. If you’re an adrenaline junkie, you’ll love gliding down mountain peaks into the valley while parasailing or wingsuit flying.
Even on hot summer days, South Tyrol offers a variety of ways to keep the adrenaline pumping. How about having an eventful day on one of the most beautiful rafting rivers? Of course, there are plenty of less extreme and more family-friendly options: borrow bikes or hiking gear from the hotel and enjoy an afternoon in the countryside. This will get your bodies moving and provide a well-deserved break from everyday stress.
The warm mountain air can also be perfectly enjoyed from a lake. Jump into the cool mountain water for another kind of adrenaline kick. And best of all, diving and swimming in the lake are not only good for the body, but also for the soul.
Time to hit the slopes! Even in winter, South Tyrol is a popular vacation spot. Skiers and snowboarders are in good hands in the 12 ski areas of the Dolomiti Superski region. With a total 1,200 kilometres of slopes, you can enjoy skiing pleasure to your heart’s content and the high altitudes make snow as good as guaranteed.
Even cross-country skiers in South Tyrol do not come up short. The Dolomiti Nordic Ski cross-country network offers cross-country lovers a total of 1,300 km of passable trails. Another cross-country mecca in South Tyrol is the Antholz Valley. Untouched romantic winter landscapes and up to 60 km of cross-country ski trails that lead through the snowy forests. Here you can enjoy your winter vacation to the fullest, such as at the Falkensteiner Hotel & Spa Antholz.
If you want to be active in the colder seasons, but prefer to stay away from the slopes, grab skates, toboggans, or moon boots and go on winter hikes or horse-drawn sleigh rides.
To warm up after a long day in the cold, fresh air, a quick trip to the Acquapura Spa is ideal before dinner. In the sauna, steam bath, etc., your muscles will get a well-deserved break and quickly warm up again.
One of the many ski resorts in the region is the family-friendly Gitschberg Jochtal. It is known for the variety of possible winter activities and is home to the Falkensteiner Hotel & Spa Flakensteinerhof.
