A winter fairy tale on the lake
Draw a deep breath in the silence
Fun on the slopes, the ski circus, après-ski… all that can of course be enjoyed in the surrounding ski areas. But Eppan and the Montiggler Lake can offer an attraction of a completely different kind. In winter an satisfying silence hangs over the lake.
The municipalities along the South Tyrolean Wine Route also consider the quieter times of the year. South Tyrol’s south then appears cosy and warm, while the climate is still pleasantly mild. The special charm of the sunshine from the late morning to the middle of the afternoon will entice you to take a stroll outside.
The Seehotel Sparer is ideally situated to allow you to take advantage of the Christmas atmosphere of the surrounding area: shopping in Eppan, the crib exhibition in St. Pauls, the Christmas markets in Bozen, Meran and Brixen, the hot baths of the Therme Meran, horse-drawn coach rides through the snow and much more besides. Or simply relax in our wellness area and enjoy tasty delicacies in the lakeside restaurant.
