The magical call of the mountains!

The perfect travel destination for your active vacation – You can choose from skiing, snowboarding, cross-country skiing, trekking, rock-climbing, cycling, and much, much more.
Our hotel is the ideal starting-point for hikers and nature enthusiasts. In the community of Eppan / Appiano, alone, there are more than 180 estates, fortresses, and castles – and each one is worth a visit! The “Three Fortress Hike” is a comfortable hike which will take you to three different historical sites: The ruins of the Boymont fortress, Hocheppan Castle, and Korb Castle.
There’s also a very popular and easy hike to the ice-holes in Eppan / Appiano. This is a strange natural phenomenon that both tourists and locals find impressive.
Vacationers looking for something more challenging might want to try the Rastenbachklamm roundtrip hike. It’s 3.5 hours long and will take you through a biotope with typical gorge vegetation with waterfalls. All in all, it’s reminiscent of a romantic canyon.
Here at the Strahlerhof, we’ll be happy to lend you some hiking poles.
