Traditions of South Tyrol

Hospitality & harmony in the mountains
 
This Holiday in a nutshell
  • self-guided, single-centre walking holiday
  • stylish Alpine hotel serving excellent cuisine and wines
  • exhilarating mountain walking on well waymarked trails
  • included travel pass & a day's cycle hire
  • spend a night in a luxury mountain refuge

In northernmost Italy, towering peaks over 3,000 metres high stand sentinel along the border with Austria, while icy glaciers spill down into the valleys below. The Senales is one such idyllic, German-speaking valley in which lush meadows and dense pine woods surround picturesque villages with their pretty wooden churches.
My fascination with South Tyrol’s mountains stems from the dreamlike nature, the invigorating power of the glacier, the wealth of culinary pleasures and the overwhelming sense of harmony, which is still omnipresent here.
     
Paul Grüner, hotelier
This area contains much of cultural interest, too, from the elegant spa town of Merano to Ötzi, the Copper Age ice man who was discovered in the Senales Valley and who now lies in Bolzano’s Ice Man Museum; and the 14th-century cloisters in the picturesque village of Certosa (Karthaus). It is in Certosa, nestling in the tranquil Senales Valley, that you will be warmly welcomed to the Hotel Zur Goldenen Rose. Besides the restaurant serving delicious Tyrolean cuisine, what makes this hotel memorable is the hospitality of owners Paul and Steffi Grüner, who are happy to share with you their passion for and knowledge of this most scenic of valleys.
