How to transform your holiday in South Tyrol into an unforgettable experience
Here in the guesthouse Pension Summererhof you are at the intersection of the full diversity of South Tyrol.
Between mountains and city: Below us, there is the old Episcopal city of Bressanone with its cosy corners, bustling streets and arcades, and the sunny Cathedral Square; above us, there is the wide world of mountains, the hiking and skiing paradise on Mount Plose – accessible by cable car in just a few minutes. And the best part: You will receive the BrixenCard and use it free of charge!
The Dolomites – Natural World Heritage: From Mount Plose, right in front of you the “Pale Mountains” rise, the fascinating world of the Dolomites, which was declared a UN World Heritage Site. Day trips take you right into the heart of it – or you may pay a visit to Sas de Putia, the first large observation pier in front of you. Tip: Mountains have a front side for viewing and photographing – and a back side, for climbing up…
