Naturhotel Moosmair, Ahornach Overview

Perched on the sunny side of the unspoiled Ahrn Valley, this high-quality hotel offers wonderful hospitality and a real sense of history, with origins stretching back 500 years. The valley is known for its extensive winter walking options, easily accessed with your free local travelcard.

It’s difficult to imagine a more beautifully sited village than Ahornach. Not only is this tranquil settlement located within the protected haven of the Rieserferner-Ahrn Nature Park, it is encircled by towering peaks and enjoys spectacular valley views from its perch high on the southern slopes of the Ahrntal. Life in this traditional corner of northern Italy is quiet and peaceful – especially during the snow-muffled winter months, when the best way to explore is to lace up your walking boots and take to the area’s enticing trails. There is an extensive network of prepared walking paths in and around the Ahrntal, easily accessed using the efficient local bus service. For those looking to embrace the snow in a variety of ways, the valley is home to a number of toboggan runs and natural ice rinks, as well as several cross-country skiing trails and downhill pistes – best suited to beginners and intermediates. Snowshoeing enthusiasts are also in for a treat – with a nearby route offering views of the world-famous Dolomite peaks. However you spend your days, be sure to leave time to enjoy your hotel, which is a very special place. Once one of the oldest farms in the village, the Moosmair is now a welcoming mountain retreat with a fine reputation for both its warm hospitality and locally sourced cuisine.
