Wellness for the whole family

Family Spa at the 4* Vitalpina Hotel Waldhof in Merano and Environs
"Splashing around happily, doing acrobatics in the water.
Dive headfirst, float on the surface.
Having fun, laughing, cheering with happiness."

Not only the grown-ups, even the little ones can‘t wait to dive into the cool water of our swimming pool, take a few laps, feast their eyes on the mountain landscapes, fill their lungs with alpine air, warm up in the sauna and - why not? - get a pampering massage, just like mom and dad do.

Enjoy the pool – inside and outside

Relaxing holidays with children in South tyrol? Yes you can!
Three swimming pools await you in the outdoor area of the Hotel Waldhof - for (little) children, teenagers, young parents and young-at-heart grandparents. Next to the pool there is our playground with slide, swing, sandpit and much more fun for the little ones.

While the children play, the adults sunbathe on the lawn. From time to time they get up, dip their feet in the water, swim a little, watch their kids having a great time a few meters away, making new friends, inventing new games, beating daddy at table soccer ...
And when the weather is not the best? In the indoor area of our hotel, our indoor pool awaits you: large, heated, with a whirlpool area - a real peace nest for young and old.
