4 stars and 4 crystals

Our 4-star hotel was awarded 4 crystals by the Wanderhotels – best alpine association. What does it mean? 4 crystals are awarded to hotels that not only offer dedicated services for hikers, but also demonstrate special competence by providing top-quality advice, no less than 4 guided tours a week, first-class service and more. The excellent location of our hotel in Val Pusteria also helps make Hotel Magdalenahof a popular choice for discerning hikers: We are tucked away at the valley head and surrounded by quiet meadows, thick forests and beckoning mountains. A trekking paradise that lies right on our doorstep.

 

Known for its winsome mountain pastures, Valle di Casies enjoys a secluded location that makes it one of the quaintest valleys in South Tyrol. It is a popular hiking resort not only for families and leisure walkers, but also for passionate mountaineers looking for a challenge. If you are after the perfect hiking experience, ask us: we will be delighted to give you personalised advice!

Climbing taster sessions

Unsurprisingly, climbing enjoys great popularity in South Tyrol. Besides, the steep, cragged rock faces and thrilling climbing routes of the Dolomites are an irresistible draw for anyone after an adrenaline fix with the added benefit of stunning views. Once a week, you will have the opportunity to try your hand at climbing with a taster session for beginners. Alternatively, you can book private climbing lessons or a climbing tour accompanied by a professional at the Globo Alpin school in Dobbiaco/Toblach (+39 0474 976139).
