Everything right at hand during your winter holiday in the Vinschgau valley

Skiing, snowshoe hiking and cross-country skiing

Skiing on the sunny Watles mountain, cross-country skiing at the Schlinig cross-country skiing centre or snow-shoeing and ski-tours through the shimmering snow-capped world – on a ski holiday in Vinschgau you will be able to reach everything you need within just a few minutes of Hotel Gerstl. For utmost convenience during your winter break in Vinschgau, Hotel Gerstl is located very close to the lower station of the Watles ski resort and 4 other ski resorts in Vinschgau. And a good chunk of sunshine will be thrown in free of charge as well, given that Watles is well-known for its high proportion of sunny Winter days.

Whether you’re looking to whizz down the well-prepared pistes of the Watles resort or to stomp the snow-covered paths from one Alpine hut to the next, we can guarantee you breathtaking panoramic views and romantic Winter landscapes. In the Alpine huts you will find a cosy sense of community spirit, before returning to Hotel Gerstl for a tasty evening meal.

Right at the heart of a skiing paradise

The Alpin & Relax Hotel Das Gerstl is situated right at the heart of a region popular for winter tourism and is surrounded by five skiing areas.

Skiing vacation in the Vinschgau

Snowshoe hiking

Snowshoe hiking is becoming more and more popular. Once the snowshoes are on, there are (almost) no limits to exploring South Tyrol's winter wonderland. It's almost like hiking in the summer, only that it makes you breathe a little harder; but it's totally worth it!
