Summer-resort in South Tyrol: At the Bad Dreikirchen guest house you can go on holiday like in they did in the past. The hotel is located at 1,120 meters above sea level and can only be reached on foot or by taxi jeep. The house from the 14th Century maintains its historical spirit without being old-fashioned. Here, tradition is combined with a dash of modernity. The rooms are basic and simply furnished with old country furniture but modern bathrooms. The dining room features stunning wall and ceiling paintings and surprises you with a modern fireplace. The large veranda draws you out with its impressive mountain views, and a swimming pool in the field cools you off after a mountain hike. If the weather won’t cooperate, you can relax in the library or in the music room (with piano).

Pool, hiking, relaxation, enjoying nature. Trips to Klausen with the monastery Säben, to the castle Trostburg or to the cities of Bolzano and Bressanone.
