High and imposing, the “Tre Cime di Lavaredo” watch over the Dolomite region of the same name, and the South Tyrol town of Innichen, where the Post Hotel shows just how beautiful the Alpine lifestyle can be.

Alpine lifestyle

Surely it is one of the most famous images of the Alps, and the symbol of the Dolomites: the view of the steep north slopes of the “Tre Cime” or “Drei Zinnen” in German (“Three Peaks”). This striking massif is not just a popular image for postcards and photographs, it is also a mecca for climbers – and has been since it was first scaled in 1869. The Tre Cime nature reserve has also been part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2009. This is the perfect place to truly experience nature.

Post Hotel Innichen

Hotel Post in the heart of Innichen has perfected the Alpine lifestyle, and celebrates that lifestyle with its guests each day. What was once a small guest house has now been tastefully modernised and now offers elegant design, a touch of luxury and unassuming charm.

Spa health & the power of the mountains

Spa facilities are a key feature of this hotel for adults: the hotel team knows that simply being able to relax is a treat for body and soul. The indoor pool, saunas with energising shower, spa and quiet rooms offer all the space you need for hours to unwind and revitalise. You can also choose from a range of Vita Alpina massages, which include treatments with scented oils or honey, facials with !QMS products and – highly recommended – a full-body scrub with fruits of the forest or organic hay.

Follow that up by enjoying the fresh air and the impressive 360-degree panorama on the rood terrace. Most guests will then hear the call of the mountains if they have not already.

A call you simply must follow.

Even if you are not a climber, mountain biker or committed hiker, just a short ramble in these magical mountains can have a truly energising and relaxing effect. Mountain bikers can explore the mountains to their heart’s content and discover this sensational landscape by bike. In the valley, on the cycle route to Lienz, you can take it easy, and experience just as much as on the slopes.

Swimmimg, climbing & paragliding

Fresh mountain air and sweet-smelling alpine pastures are lasting memories of summer holidays in the mountains. The bilberries you picked yourself at the edge of the woods could not have been tastier, and the short breather on a small wooden bench or a handy rock in the mountains feels most comfortable than any sofa. There are many climbing routes of varying levels of difficulty up the largest peak. If you want to get a good overall view, why not paraglide down the mountain. And there is nothing like a dip on a hot summer’s day.

After all these activities, return tired but happy to the Post Hotel with its rich tradition and wonderful lifestyle to sip a cocktail in the bar, P-Lounge, and sleep as you never have before in rooms with such evocative names as “La Stella” or “Il Sole”.
