Passionate golfers will find themselves in heaven in the Hotel Burggräflerhof [LINK Home]. There are not one, but two beautiful golf courses in the proximity of our hotel: the Golfclub Lana (ca. 20 min. by car) and the Golf Club Passiria/Passeier-Merano/Meran (ca. 30 minutes’ drive). Here, you can play from February until December on perfectly tended lawns with a great view to the surrounding South Tyrolean mountains.

Waalwege

Walk along the ancient field irrigation systems, the so-called “Waale”, on easy trails – the Waalwege.

The trails lead you over meadows, across orchards and forests and you find peace in the magical nature.

Rail & Bike

The Venosta/Vinschgau railway, going between Merano/Meran and Malles/Mals in Val Venosta/Vinschgau, is ideal to return comfortably to your hotel after a leisurely biking tour.
