Zum Riesen, Zum Hirschen: be a Guest in Historical Landmarks

from 10.04. to 08.11.2023


Two historic buildings at two different locations in South Tyrol, each with a special spirit and history: the Hotel Zum Hirschen in Alta Val di Non Valley near Merano and the Gasthof Zum Riesen Inn in Tarres in the Venosta Valley cultural region. Both have been renovated in recent years and offer a unique combination of history, contemporary architecture, simple design and family hospitality within historic walls. Both were selected as "Historic Guest Houses of the Year 2019" in South Tyrol.

Mentioned in local sources as early as 1184, Zum Hirschen has always been a stopover for pilgrims, traders and travellers, before becoming a South Tyrolean inn in the mid-20th century.
