Versatile Vinschgau valley

Your summer holiday in the Vinschgau: where mountains meet Mediterranean flair

Summer, sun, mountains and lots of fresh and healthy air, that’s what you´ll get in the great sun paradise of our valley. The many sunny days during the summertime are perfect for hiking in the beautiful landscape of South Tyrol. This is sure to push your energy levels up and help your body & soul recover and feel brand new. You can create your individual holiday experience by taking a bike ride along the Etsch River through the Vinschgau to the city of Meran or just by relaxing in a small Ice bar while enjoying a delicious Italian Gelato. Another option is to hike to one of the traditional Alp restaurants like the Sesvenna-house, where you can get in touch with nature and the local people.

Particularly, the summertime in Vinschgau gives you many options to explore the area in different ways. You can follow the medieval roots of the town by visiting the historical castles, museums and of course the monastery of Marienberg, which is just a few minutes of walking distance from Hotel Gerstl.
