I love extended weekends, especially when you can spend them in the wonderful Venosta Valley (Vinschgau) South Tyrol. A friend of mine (thank you Céline) recommended the Hotel Gerstl if you're into some wellness, some outdoor activities and delicious food and drinks.
This is all I was asking for and i can promise, you won't get disappointed. When we arrived there, we got warmly welcomed and enjoyed later a yum welcome drink with a fantastic panoramic view over the alps.
It's hard to highlight what we enjoyed most, so I just highlight what i loved about the stay there :)
The hikes we did:
Hiking up Watles - there was still a bit of snow and the lake frozen. But you can enjoy a fabulous view from the restaurant on top. We decided to back down by cablecar. The mountain is close to the hotel and a perfect half day activity / hike.
I guess pictures say more than words - I hope to be back soon in this paradise which makes it super easy to re-charge your batteries. Enjoy the gallery!
