Need a break? Come on up to the Salten!
If you haven’t seen it, you can’t begin to imagine it: The largest larch forest in Europe is right on our doorstep, on the Salten to be precise, a high-mountain plateau which reaches all the way to Meran 2000, complete with breathtaking views of the Latemar and the Rosengarten! An absolute dream for outdoor fans!

The sunny side of life.

Here on the mountain plateau of the Salten, the distinctive landscape of the South Tyrolean low-mountain range meets with vast larch forests, secluded hamlets, lush alpine pastures, a wealth of nature trails and magical-mythical spots like the ‘Stoanernen Mandln’ (Men of Stone). The altitude differences in this landscape are minimal and, as such, it is ideal for leisurely strolls, relaxing walks with children in prams, and even with a balance bike or a kids’ e-bike. A stop-off at an Alpine mountain hut is an absolute must!

Hiking is the Hirschen’s dearest joy.

Bracing hiking tours, challenging climbs and spectacular summit ascents - at the Hirschen, everyone can hike the countryside the way they like best, and the prospect of a tour of the Dolomites or a guided tour never fails to put a smile on our guests’ faces. With the Hirschen as your base, you can embark on hikes both long and short to the areas of Falzeben, Hafling, Vöran, Mölten and Jenesien: the “Tschögglberg bus” is at your disposal, free of charge!

Biking over the Salten!

The Salten mountain plateau is a cyclist’s paradise! Take sweeping curves over hill and dale on the alpine pastures, weave your way through the larches, spurred on by the wind and surrounded by the Dolomite mountains. Further down the valley, well-made cycle paths lure you on to a virtually endless variety of tours. One particular must-do route is the idyllic tour through the Etsch Valley, where a sea of apple blossom infuses the air with its wonderful scent. We will be delighted to lend you a mountain bike (free of charge), or an e-bike (fee applies).

Autumn time is Törggelen time!

What a show of colours! In autumn, Jenesien glows in all of its most beautifully vibrant hues. The innumerable chestnut trees - there are more in this area than in any other part of South Tyrol - are the shining stars of this fabulous spectacle. Who could say no to this irresistible invitation to head out on an idyllic autumn hike over the Salten? Needless to say, this also includes a mouthwatering Törggelen stop-off to savour the new “siaßem” wine must, speciality dishes and mouthwatering chestnut-based delicacies at one of the surrounding hotels, restaurants or huts - in the nearby Glaning, for example. Autumn pleasure at its unparalleled best - and you can only find it here in South Tyrol!

Treading softly through the winter.

If you steer clear of the chaos of the ski slopes, you can find magnificent moments of tranquillity - like when you’re snowshoeing, for example: that’s when you can see the calmer side of winter in South Tyrol. Snowshoeing through pristine mountain countryside and hiking gently onwards, step by step, is an incredibly soul-soothing experience, not to mention an outstanding all-round physical workout. Absolutely unforgettable!
