Marion Gerstl

I’m originally from Kaltern/Caldaro at the Lake and come from a hotelier family. I grew up in the Parc Hotel al Lago Silence & Luxury located directly at the Lake Kaltern/Caldaro. For many years I worked there and supported my parents and my brother in the management of the Hotel and led the reception. I always engaged for the developement of the tourist region Kaltern/Caldaro at the Lake and the southtyrolean tradition of hospitality. For love a few years ago I moved in the Vinschgau/Venosta Valley. My husband Lukas and our two daughters Gioia Marie and Stella are my big personal fortune. At my new home, the Alpin & Relax Hotel Das Gerstl, I feel endless happiness contributing all my experience and cordiality.

My motto: Give hospitality in that way I want to get it myself as guest.

My favourite place in the region: During my regular hikes to the alpine pasture Schlinig/Slingia I find tranquillity and can collect my thoughts. At the same time I can enjoy together with my daughters a piece of homemade cake or the tasty cheese dumplings on cabbage salad there.

I am happy when: I see that our guests but also our team feel well together because a harmonic working atmosphere is transferred to our guests.

Where can you find me in the Hotel Das Gerstl: In the reception of the Hotel, on the breakfast buffet, in the Gerstl Shop, in the Sesvenna Spa or with the houskeeping fairies in the several floors – I‘m enthusiastic for different sectors in the Hotel. Variety makes every day different and interesting.

My insider tip of what you should not miss on a holiday at the Hotel Gerstl: Our small and cozy Hotel playground with slide and nest swing is the perfect place for families. From the pool you can enjoy the wonderful panoramic view and just relax and feel free.

  • Where can you find me at the Hotel Gerstl?

    After I finishing my course at the hotel management school in Merano, I worked in various hotels and undertook traineeships. I then graduated as a health trainer in exercise and nutrition in Innsbruck. I have been firmly clamped in the Hotel Gerstl since 2012 now.
  • My favourite place in the region:
    My favourite place is in the Slingia/Schlinig Valley, at the Schliniger Alm enjoying a good Kaiserschmarrn (minced sweet crêpe). I enjoy taking skiing tours and going snowshoe hiking in the winter.
  • My insider tip of what you should not miss while on a holiday at the Hotel Gerstl:
    The Uinaschlucht gorge and the Oberetteshütte in the Val die Mazia/Matschertal are definitely high on my list. I'm also very happy to recommend a few more hiking tips to guests personally.
  • What I love about my job: I work where others spend their holidays - is there anything better!
  • I am happy when: I make time for my friends.
