Natural in every way

Those coming up from Bozen immediately notice that in Jenesien our little world is still in order. Simply take a deep breath and allow yourself to be astounded by the Dolomites, which are so imposing here, or by the picturesque larch tree meadows which are at the heart of the exquisite nature in Jenesien and which the people of the area have done their utmost to preserve in all their beauty. In Jenesien, on the sunny Salten plateau.

Natural at the heart of the village

The church in the center of the village and the inn beside it. The South Tyroleans would say, this is as it should be. Freshly endowed with god-given blessings and the promises of heaven eternal on Sundays. Still, here, since time immemorial one also makes the most out of the earthly life, having a glass of wine or two at the Gasthof zum Hirschen, which among the people of Jenesien is also called Unterwirt. And because it is so comfortable and one allows oneself what one likes, these days, the locals also enjoy a glass during the week.

Natural comes from the heart

Whether one comes because of the good wine, the homemade cakes and the delectable food or in order to have a chat in nice company, it doesn’t matter. In truth, the heart of Hirschen lies in its people. They do not ponder the meaning of hospitality, but rather simply are as they are: warm, friendly, and always smiling. So it is, that every individual, no matter from where he or she comes, feels comfortable here and feels as if he or she belongs. For five generations the women of the Oberkofler family have run the inn with heart and understanding, something which is apparent to the last detail.

Natural tastes better

It tastes best, when it is fresh and locally-sourced. This is a principle which the Gasthof zum Hirschen – designated as an excellent „Südtiroler Gasthaus“ – takes very seriously. The ingredients found in the spectacular dishes and the delicious cakes made in the Hirschen kitchen come from our own garden and stalls or from the fields around Jenesien. Alongside our delectable menus which change along with the time of the year and always include seasonal specialities, are offered the best wines from the great vineyards of South Tyrol.

Rooms and Suites


Natural is simply good for you!

Swim over to the Dolomites in the new infinity pool or indulge in the refreshing aromas of the Alps in the Hirschen spa. The mountain is teeming with power and nature that can be felt in one’s bones. Simply let go and allow nature to be your guide. The treasures of the Alps, which so gloriously scent the Hirschen spa, blossom right around the corner. On the Salten plataeu and in nearby Sarn valley, the powerful essences of larch trees and mountain pine trees are harvested in a gentle manner for use in our spa. Because scents so flatter the soul, we have fitted some of our 27 cozy rooms and suites  with stone pine furniture.

Natural is so close!

While the view in the distance sweeps over the great spires of the Dolomites, luck lies at the doorstep in Jenesien. The Salten plateau is overwhelming with its seemingly unending larch tree meadows, charming paths and opportunites to enjoy excellent hospitality. Simply discover all there is on offer by foot, bicycle or while galloping on the back of a trusty Haflinger horse.
