One day at Plunhof - many experiences
What a day at our wellness hotel in Ridnaun can look like
Each of us imagines a successful day on holiday a little differently, but one thing we can assure you is that here at Plunhof, there are plenty of opportunities to ensure that everyone can arrange it the way they want. According to your desires. Alone, with your partner, or with the whole family.
IN THE MORNING...
The early bird catches the worm: For early risers (and those who like to make the most of the day!), the day at Plunhof begins at 7:00 in the morning.
Those who get up even earlier, can watch as a new day gradually unfolds from your private balcony or the hotel terrace, and perhaps take a little stroll in nature. The fresh mountain air in the valley, surrounded by the Stubai Alps, and the view of untouched landscapes are without equal.
The Acqua Minera water world is open from 7:00 am so that the sporty among you can already do the first laps in the 20-metre pool. Others can go for a run or do some strength training in the fitness room. Everyone can do as they please. Twice a week, from 7:30 to 8:30, there is also the GabyYoga session. Namaste!
At 7:30 am, a rich breakfast buffet awaits (open until 11:00 for late risers!), leaving nothing to be desired. From croissants with various fillings, homemade cakes, waffles, and pancakes to seasonal fruit salads, Bircher muesli, local yogurts, and savoury delicacies such as South Tyrolean sausages and cheeses, salmon, and white sausages with sweet mustard and pretzels – there really is something for everyone here. The breakfast is complemented by freshly prepared egg dishes and Italian coffee creations (and local tea blends!) brought to your table by the friendly staff.
IN THE MORNING & AROUND LUNCHTIME...
For the active ones among you, the morning begins at 10:00 am with an outdoor adventure: hiking, biking, or forest bathing. Explore the Ridnaun Valley at the foot of the Schneeberg in all its facets and let our guided tours (of course, you can also explore the area on your own!) show you the beauties of our homeland. With our diverse weekly program (sometimes heading to an alpine hut, other times staying in the valley), you can choose a different activity and a new destination every day. Alternatively, the ladies at the reception will be happy to give you personal tips for a hike or bike tour.
Wellness lovers and all those who prefer to spend the day with us at the Plunhof (something we can very well understand due to the fact that we are a multi-award-winning wellness hotel!), you can look forward to our extensive and authentic Minera Acqua and Spa, is divided into several indoor and outdoor areas – and which will transport you for a few hours into the world of miners (including interesting information about the mining history of the Ridnaun Valley!). Wellness above and below ground: Where else can you find that?
For those who have chosen a nature activity, it's likely time for a delightful alpine meal around lunchtime. There are few things better than enjoying South Tyrolean dumplings, speck and cheese platters, or a Kaiserschmarren surrounded by breathtaking mountain scenery. Guests staying at the hotel can enjoy our à la carte dishes in the restaurant from 12:00 to 14:00 pm (yes, we serve typical South Tyrolean specialities as well!).
IN THE AFTERNOON...
The afternoon hours (during which we also offer a small menu with warm dishes - but not included in the price of your stay!) are dedicated to soothing wellness treatments and infusions at our hotel (three times a week there is also an aqua fitness session in the indoor pool!). If you are not having a beauty treatment (we can highly recommend the silver quartzite experience!) or loosening up your tired muscles with a massage, then from 3:30 pm we invite you to enjoy salt scrubs and sauna infusions, which are something very special "underground". The 5 saunas (especially the rustic miners' sauna is a real highlight!), the gallery lake, the outdoor whirlpool saltwater lake and the mine house with “Knappenkaue” relaxation area will truly immerse you in a different world that you won't soon forget.
IN THE EVENING...
After an eventful day in our hotel or in the mountains, you can look forward to a varied and diverse menu with exquisite dishes of South Tyrolean and Italian cuisine from 6:30 pm. But before that, you can help yourself to our salads with homemade dressings, various oils and vinegars at the buffet to whet your appetite for more…
All dishes, which you choose in the morning at breakfast, are served with great attention to detail (and with an honest smile). Matching wines round off the gourmet experience in the cosy parlours of our home of generations.
To end the day, it's almost a tradition to enjoy a drink or two at the bar and be entertained by live music in the hotel twice a week.
This is how a vacation day at Plunhof in Ridnaun can look. If you have visited us before, some of these experiences might seem familiar. Or maybe you have now got some new ideas for your next holiday with us. For those who have never visited us, our "daily routine" described above is certainly a good basis for a great day at our wellness hotel in South Tyrol.
It is best to book your stay today and experience the diversity of the Plunhof and the Ridnaun Valley!
