Mountains_Parkhotel Holzner

Located at a total of 1.200 meters above sea level and high up on the mountain, the is enthroned Parkhotel Holzner and offers a wonderful view of the expanse, of the lush green of the surrounding pastures and forests, of gentle hills and rugged peaks alike. When the light of the morning sun also falls through the high lattice windows of the house, you can imagine that you are surrounded by a very special atmosphere.

A family tradition of hospitality and vision

The mountain refuge, built in the Alpine Art Nouveau style in 1908, is now run by the fourth generation of Monika and Wolfgang Holzner. With young ideas and fresh concepts, the two took over the house from Wolfgang's parents 13 years ago and have since proven that tradition and future-oriented action are not mutually exclusive. Rather, both approaches complement and enrich each other almost in a symbiotic way.

Contemporary architecture meets historical structure

In the past few years, the house has been lovingly and considerately renovated and most recently equipped with sustainable extensions. The collaboration with the architects BergmeisterWolf turned out to be a stroke of luck for everyone involved. The historic building with its timeless aesthetics was always the focus of the expansion and special attention was paid to preserving as much of the old, beautiful tree population as possible. The result is a hotel that can meet the modern needs of all generations of a family while still retaining its original charm.

“With every decision that we make for our house, be it small or large, the main question for us is whether we add value not only for our guests and ourselves as entrepreneurs, but also for our children, successors and the create nature around us. That doesn't always make it easier, but it makes it meaningful, sustainable and therefore fulfilling for us as hosts. ”- Monika Holzner

As a founding member of the “Family Hotels South Tyrol” group, Wolfgang's parents laid the foundation stone for the hotel's family-friendly approach back in the 90s. In the Holzner family vacation does not mean vacation from each other, the focus is rather on offering unforgettable experiences for the whole family, where all members of the family can enjoy relaxation, joy and community alike. Hospitality flutters here, accompanied by children's laughter and true to the motto "Children don't bring unrest, they bring life into the house" from room to room, through historical salons as well as from flowerbeds to sunbathing lawns in the large park, through the relaxing, unexcited Liberty Spa until the end splashing loudly to the infinity pool.

Enjoy with a clear conscience

With the opening of the wellness area, the hosts took a critical look at the conventional heating of the house and finally decided to switch to renewable energies. By building their own bio-heating plant, the hosts have been ensuring that all pools, the hotel and the Holzner family's private home are supplied with clean energy since 2008. This is how it is enjoyed with a pure heart at the Parkhotel Holzner at any time of the year.

Slow travel and cultural experiences in focus

The next season should start with a new summer freshness, with the focus above all on authentic cultural experiences. The hosts are convinced that only an interest in and understanding of the cultural peculiarities, the small cycles and unique rituals of a community will make a holiday really sustainable. As part of the culture parcours hikes, Monika and Wolfgang Holzner take their guests to special cultural places, where guests can look forward to insights into the South Tyrolean way of life as well as the architectural and historical peculiarities. For Wolfgang, who is himself a culture lover and architecture enthusiast, this is clearly a “top priority”.
