Blacksmith opener

Schwarzschmied convinces with its spa concept

The four-star Hotel Schwarzschmied is embedded in the mountains and wine-growing region of Merano and Environs. It is located very close to the municipality of Lana, which invites you to stroll with its numerous cafés in the historic center of the village. And yet you are far enough away from the hustle and bustle in the Schwarzschmied and can enjoy the tranquility of nature. For example under an old walnut tree in the garden.

The authentic and holistic spa concept is convincing

With slow food, enjoyment of art and a holistic spa concept, the operators - the Dissertori family - concentrate above all on the quality of life and health of their guests.

The idyllic refuge of the Disstertori family

In the rooms themselves, the large window fronts bring nature in and natural materials such as wood and glass characterize the rooms and suites. You can tell that the aesthetic inspiration follows the high ecological standards of the operators: the entire house is certified with the European Ecolabel, and the staff has been trained accordingly.

The Dissertoris are also socially committed and you can tell that the Dissertoris live for their region. Not only do they prefer to hire employees from the region, they also purchase their products primarily from local cultivation. In addition, the operators promote contemporary and local art. As one of the venues for the Lana Jazz Festival, local artists have the opportunity to present their works of art in the Schwarzschmied.

Slow food in the forge

In the restaurant “La Cucina” (Eng. The smithy), the slow food principle is used to cook “back to nature”. Attention is paid not only to the quality and freshness of the products, but also to the regional origin and seasonality. For example, the butter, eggs and honey come from selected farms nearby. And the vegetables and fruits as well as the fresh herbs either come from the in-house Schwarzbauer garden or are sourced from local producers.

Another highlight is the in-house pasta factory, in which many different types are produced. From rye, durum wheat semolina to spelled and buckwheat - Schwarzschmied pasta is always tasty, digestible and of organic quality.

From all these high-quality ingredients, the team around the chef Stefano Brida conjures up several courses every evening that flatter the palate and make gourmets happy. There are also fine wines from the in-house wine cellar to go with it.

Focus on deceleration

In the Hotel Schwarzschmied, relaxation and deceleration as well as healthy and conscious enjoyment are clearly in the foreground. With a lot of passion and commitment, the Dissertoris have created a special place to which you will always return and find peace far away from the hectic everyday life, for example in the garden.
