Today the 400-year-old farmhouse above Heiligenblut is a small chalet hotel that can accommodate up to 35 guests. With its heavy wooden ceiling beams in the bedrooms and open fireplace in the rustic restaurant, the property has lost none of its historic flair. The restaurant specializes in traditional Austrian cuisine. A Turkish steam bath and a fitness room are also available. Although the inn with views of the Großglockner is especially popular among winter sports enthusiasts, the calmer summer months are ideal for relaxing or hiking on the numerous marked paths in the Großglockner National Park. Those who prefer to travel by car can take a scenic drive to the Großglockner Glacier.
The late 19th century house is situated on the steep slopes of Lago di Centro Cadore in Domegge and offers wide vistas of this and the surrounding mountains. All rooms at the B&B are stylish and furnished with a sense of design and detail. The renovation has been carried out to preserve the original charm of the house. In many places you can still see original wooden elements and wrought-iron fittings that immerse you in the world of legends that surround this region: that of the Monti Pallidi, the Soreghina of King Laurin. The breakfast with many homemade foods is rich and in fine weather is served on the terrace overlooking the garden and the mountains. The owners are very hospitable without being intrusive.
The medieval castle atop a hill near Bolzano dates back to the year 1236. It was acquired by the Dellago family nearly 100 years ago and converted into a luxury hotel and restaurant by the current generation of Dellagos. From this quiet perch atop a hill surrounded by vineyards guests can enjoy wonderful views of Bolzano and Catinaccio. Inside a pleasant atmosphere is created by works of folk art, bright colours and wood furnishings. Dinner on the panoramic terrace is an experience to which Mediterranean-influenced cuisine and a good wine cellar also contribute. Somewhat off the beaten track of the castle is the pool, where you can dream, read or lounge on the sun deck. Guests can also use the indoor pool, whirlpool, sauna, steam bath, solarium, tennis court and library, and Vespa excursions can be arranged.
The old double eagle coat of arms of the Astro-Hungarian Empire still hangs above the entrance to the historical guesthouse. In the 15th century the stalls of Emperor Maximilian I (known as the Knightstood on the site. The stalls were replaced by a patrician villa in the 17th century that has now served as an inn for nearly 500 years. Since its recent restoration the hotel has been awarded a 4-star rating. No two rooms in the building are alike, and most are decorated in accordance with a specific theme, such as the Sissi Room named after the Austrian Princess or the Castle Room. The area of the building that contains the hotel restaurant was once part of a neighbouring monastery. The restaurant, one of the best in Innsbruck, also has a proud, 500-year tradition. A wellness and massage centre is also available to guests.
