Active holiday

Discover South Tyrol

Dorf Tirol - the ideal place to regain new energy: with the perfect amount of exercise and relaxation, with fun and good food. An experience in summer and winter!



On a sunny day, when it is so quiet that you only hear some heart beats and the air. Look at the scenery, the many mountain peaks and the deep blue sky. Breathe in and feel the clear air going into your lungs. Look down and know that you have left all your problems and bad thoughts down in the valley. These are the moments where one would not want to swap life with the richest person on earth, because such moments are simply priceless. 

Both hosts at the Alpenhof are certified hiking guides. We provide insiders' tips for your tours and will show you where you can experience such moments.

Mountainbike & racing bike

Dorf Tirol and the holiday region of Meran provide the ideal setting and climate for a cycling vacation. Mountain-bikers will find forest roads and trails of all levels of difficulty. Road cyclists can choose any direction and conquer challenging pass roads. Leisure cyclists can enjoy a flat round tour of the valley.

Here at the Alpenhof you can expect competent advice for your tours, a powerful breakfast to improve your energy level, and a washing spot for your bike. Upon request, we will organize guided tours of all levels of difficulty and cycling technique courses.

Running & Nordic Walking

You would like to do exercise but anytime you try to run you feel exhausted and give up? Christa is a certified running instructor and will teach you how to approach the running sport. In this way, you will do something for your body and enjoy the exercise, without exhaustion, frustration and pain. 

You love running already but would not like to interrupt your training during your holidays?
Christa is an ambitious marathon athlete. She will be happy to tell you the best places for your running exercises.


Whether you only play for leisure or want to prepare yourself for the competition season in spring. You will have the opportunity. Directly at the Alpenhof you will find two sand courts with floodlights.


Within a radius of 15 to 45 minutes you can reach 5 ski resorts in the Meran & environs holiday region; Meran 2000, Schnalstal, Schwemmalm, Pfelders, Vigiljoch. With the Ski Card Meran, you have access to 33 lift facilities, more than 155 km of slopes, 65 km of cross-country tracks, 4 ski kindergartens and 11 toboggan runs.

Meran 2000 is a leisure region with two different faces. In the winter, when the snow covers the mountains, skiing and tobogganing are the things to do. In the summer, the landscape becomes a beautiful hiking region, which can be accessed from Merano directly via the cable car.

From here, you can look down on the "mountain roller coaster" which was the first in South Tyrol and the longest in Italy. Add to this the top hospitality found in the local hotels and restaurants and things just could not get better.
