Everything moves in summer

Hiking, biking, golfing & more ... in the Bolzano Summer

Summer resort

Was the term "summer resort" born in Kohlern? Well, that doesn't really matter, because everyone leaving the sweltering heat of Bolzano in summer in the direction of Kohlern will feel revitalised after just a few minutes. This was no news to the ingenuous hotelier Josef Staffler. In 1908 he built the first suspension passenger cableway to Bolzano's local mountain, and still today one can guess from the cable car the breathtaking view to come.


Paths lead through meadows and vast woods to spectacular viewpoints: the spurs of cliff of the Köhlwände in the west and the Dolomite view "Titschenwarte" in the east. Marked mountain trails go round the highest hilltop of the Kohlern mountain, the Titschen (1615m), or lead to the Etschtal view of the Rotwand (1540m) and the "Totes Moos" (1450m), an endangered upland moor, and to the European long distance hiking trail E5 towards the mountain village of Deutschnofen (1350m) on the western edge of the Dolomites.

Summer for families

Kohlern is what is known today as a "Family paradise". We have a vast, sun-blessed plateau in the middle of a spectacular undulating landscape of woodland and meadows where old and young can hike and cycle from spring until late autumn. The multi-purpose square with its picturesque changing cabins near the mountain station of the cable car is available free of charge to young and old guests of the Gasthof Kohlern.

Cosy tête à tête and the luxury of having time - these are the two main ingredients that make for romantic days in Kohlern. You do not of course need to like this; average visitors have different tastes. Confirmed romantics seem to like this straightforward life best.
