I was allowed to spend the last days of February in beautiful South Tyrol. Today I would like to tell you about my journey and give you an insight into my experiences. So much in advance, if you like to be active during your holidays and don’t want to miss out on relaxing in nature, then South Tyrol is the right holiday destination for you. In winter you can enjoy skiing, sledding or snowshoeing. In summer you can hike or ride the bike.
If you are looking for relaxation from hectic everyday life, South Tyrol offers the perfect conditions for it. Wellness is definitely lived in South Tyrol. Especially after a day of snow sports, there is nothing better than relaxing in the wellness area to be back on the slopes the next day full of energy. In summer, after a hike, you can relax wonderfully too. Sauna, heated outdoor pools, whirlpools and co. will certainly provide variety. My personal favorite in the beautiful Hotel Pfösl in Deutschnofen was definitely the heated infinity pool.
Fun in the snow
Only 10 minutes away from our hotel is the ski and winter sports area Obereggen. A panorama with the Dolomites in the background, which is unparalleled, is offered on the slopes. In total there are 48 km of slopes, 18 lifts, 2 toboggan runs and a snowpark as well as a children’s area. We spent our first day in Obereggen with sledging on both slopes – great fun.
On my second day in the Obereggen ski area I was on skis. I spent the whole day on the piste. You shouldn’t miss a visit to the brand new and stylish Oberholz Hut – there you can enjoy delicious South Tyrolean specialities and a breathtaking view.
Food lovers like me are particularly spoiled in South Tyrol. Delicious meals were served for us in the hotel as well as in the visited mountain huts. You shouldn’t miss regional specialities like liver dumplings and apple strudel. I can also warmly recommend Spätzle and Co.
During my stay in South Tyrol I was allowed to stay at the Hotel Pfösl. At the Hotel Pfösl natural materials such as wood meet light-filled rooms and modern design. The hotel then places great emphasis on sustainability – especially when it comes to heating, cleaning the water and decorations.
The carefully selected interior allows the modern to meet the tradition of South Tyrol. Spacious rooms have been designed with care and great comfort. I felt very comfortable in the wood-lined rooms. The Alpine Zirbe Suite is located on the ground floor of the new building of the Hotel Pfösl and was nobly furnished with wood from the local Zirbe. Especially beautiful is the private loggia.
Every day special events take place in the Hotel Pfösl, such as yoga lessons or the Kitchen Party on Thursday evening, where delicacies are offered directly in the kitchen. In addition, a delicious breakfast buffet and freshly made egg dishes are served every morning on request. In the evening there is delicious Alpine cuisine with regional products, and you can choose from one of three menus.
The South Tyrol is an exceptionally beautiful region and exemplary hospitality. I will definitely come back again to visit the beautiful mountain lakes in the Dolomites during the warmer season. A visit to our neighbour country is definitely worthwhile – whether in winter, spring, summer or autumn. If you are still looking for a place for the next winter holidays, you will certainly find it.
