Between mountain stories and nature adventures.

Active holiday in the Merano region - Welcome to the Hotel Waldhof****
“Look deep into nature. Then you will understand everything better."
(Albert Einstein)

Right outside the Waldhof, the landscape whispers fascinating tales - of magical legends and crystal-clear lakes, of acrobatic ibexes and golden eagles, of mountain pines and blooming magnolias ... An explicit invitation to dive into nature - on foot, by bike, by paragliding or, in the truest sense of the word, by taking a dip in a refreshing Alpine lake.

As a Vitalpina Hotel, Bikehotel and partner of the Ötzi Bike Academy, every week at the 4-star Hotel Waldhof we offer various mountain hikes and MTB tours through South Tyrol in the company of our certified guides.


Where hiking gives you wings ...
... this is where you should definitely go. Many hiking trails pass right in front of our 4-star hotel in the Merano region. Do you prefer a leisurely stroll or an adrenalin-pumping hike to the summit? An easy hike to the Parcines Waterfall, a multi-day hike along the Merano High Mountain Trail, an exciting mountain tour to the Orenknott (2258 m) – hike your favorite trail or try them all!
