Summer Holidays ... mountain summer in Castelrotto

A Perfect Location

Summer holidays

While holidaying at the Hotel Zum Turm in Castelrotto – South Tyrol, organising your independent programme is easy and convenient. The Alpe di Siusi, the largest high mountain pasture in Europe, and nearby Sciliar mountain area (at 1,800 – 2,200 m respectively), are just minutes away.

Come face-to-face with the enchanting mountain world of the Dolomites. You’ll be amazed!

Summer Activities

Hiking until your socks start to burn!

The Sciliar mountain area and the Alpe di Siusi high mountain pasture offer hikers and mountain climbing fans all that their hearts could desire: hiking trails totalling 300 km, 200 km of mountain-bike tracks and 365 mountain huts and refuges. Many of these mountain huts welcome hikers and bikers, inviting you to stop for some needed rest and a bite to eat. Besides the leisurely walks and hikes, there are also challenging hikes, via ferrata chain-assisted climbs, exciting excursions to the summits – all amidst the unspoiled nature and with sunshine aplenty!

Summer Activities

Golf a San Vigilio

Our hotel in Castelrotto offers ideal accommodation to golfers. Just a 5 min drive away from us, the 18-hole San Vigilio Siusi golf course lies in a magnificent natural setting, beneath the Dolomites. Small lakes, deep mountain gorges, gushing torrents interspersed with waterfalls, and the omnipresent panoramic views – all make golfing here an experience like no other.

By the end of your game, you’ll have traversed quite a number of metres in altitude!

After golfing all day, you can reward yourself with a taste of our special gourmet cuisine – paired with excellent local wines from South Tyrol, as well as the rest of Italy.
