The gentle wine-growing landscape around the South Tyrolean Wine Road, the imposing peaks of the Dolomites and the fortresses and castles with their legendary stories invite one to go on a wine-lover’s historical hiking holiday. Although once is not usually enough, because so many unforgettable moments and views are waiting around the Stroblhof that almost all our guests return time and time again.
On arrival you will be given a WinePass Plus – a tourist card that gives you numerous benefits, including: free fares on local public transport including the bus service between Val Müstair in Switzerland and Brenner, free entry to approximately 90 museums, castles and stately homes, and reduced fees to participate in a series of wine-themed events taking place along the Wine Road. Detailed information on the WinePass Plus card is available here.
Whether you are a racing cyclist, mountain-biker, leisure cyclist or e-bike rider: around the Stroblhof there are the perfect routes for every taste. From tours in the gentle, hilly wine-growing landscape, along the Wine Road, through to tours with a height difference of up to 1,000 metres, you will find everything that the cycling enthusiast’s heart could desire.
Hikers find the ideal way to cool off after an extended tour at South Tyrol’s lakes. Monticolo Lake, for example, invites one to go on a boat trip in the middle of the idyllic woodland landscapes, Lake Garda, on the other hand, lets you enjoy the finest of Italian flair. But in the mountains, too, the numerous vantage points with their benches and sun beds invite one to lean back and leave one’s cares behind.
Lots of guests use their holiday at the Stroblhof for a trip into the past. The regionally typical religious buildings in the styles of Romanesque, Gothic and Baroque, or a visit to the Museum of Archaeology in Bolzano, where one can meet the legendary Ötzi, the man from the ice, take visitors back to long forgotten times.
Thanks to its climate, South Tyrol is not only weather-proof for hiking holidaymakers but also blessed with an impressive world of fauna. One encounters this everywhere: from our splendid garden terrace to the breath-taking gardens of Schloss Trauttmansdorff near Meran to the region’s delightful markets.
South Tyrol is the land of fortresses and castles. These can be found strewn all over South Tyrol. The castle hikes are enjoyed by young and old alike.
