A young bride and groom spent their honeymoon by visiting the beautiful Dolomites and chose the Sparerhof as the starting point for their daytrips. Together they visited the lakes of Caldaro, Monticcolo e Carezza and the surrounding areas. Having one more day left over before their flight home from the Venetian Marco Polo airport, they desired to explore the famous city on the lagoon and asked the Concierge for recommendations on where to spend the night.

Thanks to his connections, he contacted a Venetian colleague who gladly found the young couple a room in a small hotel directly on the famous Canal grande.

They thanked us for their stay at the Sparerhof and the recommendations from our colleague Giorgio, which made their stay in Venice unforgettable. The metaphorical cherry on top as one might say, before the newlyweds boarded their flight home.

Stay tuned!!

Biking to Lago di Garda

A group of ambitious bikers settled down at the Sparerhof for the night, after having completed their first days’ worth of cycling from Malles to Merano and finally to the Sparerhof. Here they relaxed mind and muscles and prepared themselves for the further journey.

At arrival they performed a Jodel, that could be heard from one end of the village to the other. However, some claim their talents where aided by the great tasting beer they granted themselves after an exhausting day on their bikes.

After a light dinner, rich in carbohydrates, they decided to rest, but of course not before having a delightful conversation with the concierge.

In the morning after treating themselves to a breakfast with various homemade jams, cakes, yogurt, typical south Tyrolean whole grain bread, they took a goodbye picture for the concierge before the went on their way down the cycling path along the Adige to Trento.

By tomorrow, they should arrive at the lake.

Stay tuned…

Breaking news: We received word the group has arrived at the lake and even sent a picture of their refreshing bath in the Lago di Garda.

Stay tuned!

Born to ride

The official partner of BMW motorcycles from Thailand visited us during their Enduro tour.

The staff of BMW Thailand, with lots of fans following them, visited some of the most scenic parts of South Tyrol. Some of the highlights are certainly the visit to a local glacier, where the riders from hotter and more humid climates touched fresh snow for the first time in their lives.

Thanks to enduropark for the beautiful pictures.

Stay tuned!!!

Feltre, between the Dolomites and Venice

Feltre is nice. Beautiful and sexy. They do not have many gelato flavours but what they lack in gelato flavours they make up in hospitality.

As the beginning of the asparagus season comes closer and closer, behind the scenes there is still a lot of work to do for the Concierge. Among other things, he has to meet with the graphic designer who designs the brochures with all participating restaurants. Apparently hiking increases productivity, so everything was discussed during a hike through “Tauern Fenster”, about 120 minutes by car from Bolzano, close to the Austrian border.

A spectacular view, a delicious lunch, and an excellent glass of pinot noir later, the excursion was a full success. Some say they might have even gotten some work done…
