Alpenhotel Plaza

Summer in the Dolomites – An unforgettable experience for all ages

You will never be bored during your stay at the 4-star superior Alpenhotel Plaza, thanks to the range of sports and leisure activities on offer in Santa Cristina and Val Gardena.

The unspoilt nature of Val Gardena, with its mountains, pastures, meadows and forests, is a paradise waiting to be discovered during the summer months.

The hiking world of the Dolomites, a paradise full of breathtaking hikes

Pack your rucksack, apply sun cream, lace up your boots and hike to the most magical places of the Dolomites - UNESCO World Heritage Site. We provide you with a state-of-the-art rucksack for the entire holiday.

The mountains can be explored along well maintained trails. Lift facilities provide access to higher elevations. Rustic mountain huts and shelters invite you to take a comfortable rest. On hot summer days, hiking to higher altitudes is a welcome refreshment! Allowing the mountains to inspire you, recharging your batteries and gathering new energy are best done while hiking. Whether in spring, summer, autumn or winter, Val Gardena hosts a fascinating landscape and promises a wide choice of hiking and walking trails. Rediscover the world. Switch off and spend hours surrounded by breathtaking scenery.
