Winter holiday in Val Pusteria/Pustertal

The Skiworld Ahrntal is a snow-white adventure playground. However, such a wintery world of activity is not only open to you here – the entire area of Valle Aurina/Ahrntal is an absolute Eldorado for sporty and active winter fans. The valley of 80 three-thousanders is a well-known paradise for snowshoe hikers and ski touring enthusiasts, and one of the longest

toboggan runs in Italy is within close proximity to our hotel. In addition, some of the most beautiful and idyllic cross-country ski runs in South Tyrol can be found in the neighbouring villages of Casere/Kasern, Rio Bianco/Weißenbach, and Riva di Tures/Rein in Taufera. Apart from fun on the slopes in Skiworld Ahrntal, quieter winter holidays in Valle Aurina/Ahrntal are also very popular. Snow-covered winter hiking trails and snowshoe hiking routes lead through the unique, romantic nature, and countless alpine huts are open in winter. It’s definitely worth a stop.

A winter holiday isn’t just skiing in Valle Aurina/Ahrntal. It’s also:


Ski & Snowboard

Endless skiing fun on 74 kilometers of perfectly groomed slopes in all difficulty levels, with the most modern lifts, fantastic views, cool snow parks and rustic mountain huts that spoil you with the specialties of South Tyrolean cuisine.

Cross-country skiing & Biathlon

In Kasern, Weißenbach, Mühlwald and Rein in Taufers you can find the most beautiful, idyllic and snow-sure cross-country trails in the Alps. Anyone who loves nature and cannot do without sports is in the right place here. There is also a shooting range on the trail in Rein in Taufers, for all biathlon fans.


Those who like to hike in summer or just need a break from skiing will love snowshoeing! There is nothing more beautiful and relaxing than pulling your way through the glittering powder snow and watching the snowy nature.


The toboggan run at Klausberg ends right in front of our door and at Speikboden, not far away, there is the longest toboggan run in Italy with a total length of 10 kilometers. Many alpine huts in the Ahrntal offer toboggan rental so that, after a leisurely hike and tasty refreshment, you can dash back into the valley.

Ski touring

The trend sport par excellence and the supreme discipline of alpine skiing, because everything is required here: endurance, willpower, technique and freeride. Once you have reached the top, you will be rewarded with breathtaking views and beautiful winter landscapes, which you cannot find on the slopes.

Ice climbing

An absolute must for all climbing fans, because: only those who have conquered the icy wall of a frozen waterfall can claim to be a master of the vertical. For all those who want to try it, local guides offer courses in all difficulties.

Ice skating & ice stock sport

There are several ice rinks in the Ahrntal - namely in Sand in Taufers, Kasern, Prettau, Luttach and Weißenbach. If a leisurely round on ice skates in the midst of snowy nature is not enough for you, you can get to know a traditional sport of the Ahrntal - ice stock sport - have a lot of fun and improve your accuracy at the same time!
