A walk into nature.

Where hiking grumps
become hiking champions.

All of South Tyrol is a true hiking paradise – and that’s no different in the west of the country, at Reschen Pass. Blooming alpine meadows, wild mountain streams, gentle forest paths, ice glaciers, rustic lodges – yes, all of this you will also find here around our hiking hotel in the Vinschgau.

Alpine air and panorama

The options for hiking are truly enticing, and resistance is futile. Don’t believe it? Then start off with a leisurely hike along the high-altitude panoramic hiking trail from Schöneben to Haideralm. Then we recommend you try a hike from lodge to lodge to Reschner, Brugger or Melager lodges.

Mountain tour

If you’re fit enough, a challenging mountain tour beckons, such as up to one of the thirty 3-000-metre peaks in Langtaufers Valley. Do you really want to test your limits? Then there is King Ortler, the highest mountain in the country at 3,905 m. That’s something for true pros with the proper gear and a mountain guide – not for hiking grumps!


The panorama trail from Haider Alm into Schöneben local recreation area with its abundance of flora and fauna and wonderful vistas of the glaciers of the Ötztal Alps is rewarding for both families and nature lovers. From St. Valentin you can also take the gondola lift up to Haider Alm.
