In South Tyrol's Mountains We Are the Hotel on the Lake

A lakeside hotel right on the water, surrounded by woods, in the middle of the Dolomites UNESCO World Heritage Site. The perfect place to wind down and take it easy for awhile. You can take a deep breath and relax at the hotel located at the head of Prags Valley. For 120 years, we have been a haven of peace for people, a starting point for hikers and climbers, a hideaway for lovers, a space for creative people with creative ideas. In the Belle Époche, summer visitors would take a walk in the woods around the lake, dine on the lakeside terrace, converse in the salons, and watch the lake change color from their room windows. Today, the days are still long. The most beautiful? In the morning and evening, the lake belongs to you alone. In our opinion, it doesn't get more exclusive than this.
