Adventurous outdoor sleep over in the mountains of South Tyrol (Italy)

Sleeping under the stars

Be close to nature for a night out: In the warm summer months, the Hohenwart Hotel in South Tyrol offers the unique opportunity to spend the night outdoors in the mountains – however, not on the hard ground in a tent, but rather in a bed on the edge of the forest. Close to the hotel's own mountain lodge Gsteier at around 4,600 ft above sea level, guests can spend the night completely undisturbed off the beaten track. Surrounded by the impressive Alpine scenery and alone under the firmament, both falling asleep and waking up the next morning are a truly fantastic experience. In the evening, a well-stocked picnic basket full of South Tyrolean delicacies ensures the wellbeing of the guests. Washing trough and chamber pot are reminiscent of bygone times. A sumptuous breakfast at the Gsteier mountain lodge the next morning will bring the unique experience to a relaxed conclusion.

Outdoor Overnight Stay in the Mountains of South Tyrol, Italy

Sheltered only by the sparkling firmament: Waking up surrounded by trees, meadows, and birdsong, and enjoying the view over the impressive Venosta Valley. During the warm summer nights, outdoor fans can not only enjoy the varied hiking and sporting possibilities of the Merano region but can even spend the night in the midst of nature. Those who book the outdoor overnight stay will be taken up to the Gsteier with the hotel shuttle. Away from the hiking trails – and therefore not visible –, the bed on the edge of the forest is awaiting the guests for the overnight adventure. When the last hikers have descended and only the occasional ringing of the sheep's bells breaks the silence, the head will be quickly cleared to leave the stressful everyday life behind and pursue one's own thoughts in absolute tranquility. After their arrival, guests can hike as they please, read a book in the fresh mountain air or simply relax and enjoy the views.

What a Great Experience: Sleeping under the Stars in the Mountains

In keeping with the outdoor adventure, the Hohenwart kitchen team provides culinary delights in form of a picnic basket filled with plenty of South Tyrolean specialties. We deliberately refrain from electricity in the outdoor room in order to pay tribute to nature – the ideal opportunity to mentally and digitally switch off for 24 hours and experience the moment with all senses. As soon as the summer sun sinks behind the peaks, a torch creates a pleasant ambiance. For those who are courageous and do not want to use the washroom of the Gsteier mountain lodge, a washing trough and a chamber pot are available. After an exciting night under the open sky, a refreshing breakfast awaits the guests at the Gsteier the next morning. And of course nobody is left out in the rain: There is always someone available at the mountain lodge and in case of bad weather the Gsteier offers refuge at any time.

Dream holidays also for small families

We have stayed at Hohenwart for 3 years in a row and again it was outstanding, also with our 16 month old daughter! The food is really excellent. And the offers for toddlers with playground, playroom and swimming pool are really great.
