With a broad view of the Dolomites, the Parkhotel Holzner is located on a sunny plateau above the South Tyrolean town of Bolzano. Built in 1908 in Alpine Art Noveau style and family-owned for four generations, the hotel has been progressively renovated and expanded over the past century. The historic character and magical atmosphere of the house has been preserved nonetheless, and enriched with additions in a modern and linear design. In 2014, the Art Nouveau rooms – which feature furnishings dating back over 100 years – were supplemented with a set of modern penthouse suites in a timeless design. In the course of expanding the attic, the observation tower was rebuilt and a second restaurant was added. In late 2017, the hotel was extended once again: the new wing feature generous suites with direct garden access and mountain views as well a spa with sauna.
