The seven tennis courts and the golf course of the Quellenhof See Lodge are open for you to use from spring to autumn, and our gentle horses are also available during this time. In summer, you can also enjoy a game of golf at higher altitudes, such as in Kastelruth.
Enjoy a leisurely stroll through the spa town, take in the Mediterranean flair, and admire the picturesque alleys and arcades. After an extensive shopping trip, a wonderfully refreshing Aperol Spritz or a creamy cappuccino awaits you in the old town.
Want a bird’s eye view of the world? A helicopter tour with our partner Heli-Austria makes this possible. And experiencing the Dolomites up close and personal is even more impressive. We offer this experience on a helicopter tour with our partner DOLOmagic – including wine tasting, fun at a mountain hut, and hiking through the mountain giants.
At the Quellenhof See Lodge, we regularly organise herb, bee, and sunrise hikes with a hut breakfast and a chance to observe the wildlife in summer. For families, we offer adventure hikes, for example on Merano/Meran 2000.
Autumn is a time of colourful natural landscapes, Törggelen, and fantastic festivals! In autumn, Meran hosts the annual Grape Festival with its spectacular parade, as well as the Meran Wine Festival for true wine lovers and connoisseurs, and the Grand Prix of Meran, one of the most important horse races in Europe.
Snowflakes dance through illuminated alleys. The scent of cinnamon and apples fills the winter air, and mulled wine warms cold hands. A stroll through the Christmas market in Meran, with its handcrafted products and traditional delicacies, is a feast for all the senses, a true journey of enjoyment for all ages. Fun and delight await children on the ice-skating rink, carousel, children’s train, and numerous other attractions.
Eerie masks, mystical smoke, and atmospheric lights – during the Krampus Run, usually held on 5 December, the “Tuifl” (devils) parade through villages and towns. The fearsome figures also come to visit us at the Quellenhof Resort.
The festival of love, of atmospheric lights, gleaming eyes, and inner peace. At the Quellenhof, we love Christmas more than anything because this celebration has always had something special about it, a one-of-a-kind magic that fills our hearts. We would like to pass on this joyful feeling, this pleasant excitement, to our guests; therefore, we organise a small Christmas party every Christmas Eve, with presents, a dinner, the reading of the Christmas story by the Christmas tree, and a Christmas mass in our resort. It is not only the children’s eyes that light up with joy. On New Year’s Eve, there is an elegant gala with a festive dinner, fireworks, and music until the early hours, followed by a New Year’s breakfast for late risers. On 6 January, we celebrate the day of Befana, the good witch, and the three wise men with our guests.
In winter, Val Passiria/Passeiertal is transformed into a wonderland of ice and snow. Explore the wintry wilderness on winter and snowshoe hikes or indulge in the pleasure of skiing, carving fresh tracks in the snow. Nearby you will find the ski areas of Plan/Pfelders, Racines/Ratschings, Merano 2000/Meran 2000, and Schwemmalm. A toboggan run means pure winter fun for the whole family, guaranteeing laughter, rosy cheeks, and pure happiness.
