We leave as one person and come back as another. Rich with impressions and experiences. On the trail to the summit and back to the valley, we get to know ourselves in so many ways. While our eyes wander over the hilltops and mountains, we follow our thoughts, and we look after each other just as we look after the rhythm of our own step. From the Hotel Saltus, you can walk directly to a plateau with more than 800 kilometres of hiking trails that will make your heart skip a beat and will inspire you with Alpine enthusiasm. Hike on the Salto/Salten, Europe’s largest larch plateau, through spruce forests and the Monzoccolo/Tschögglberg hiking paradise, as your stress is gradually reduced and the healing effect of the forest unfolds. Hiking is the best anti-ageing formula. It has been proven to strengthen the body’s defences and make our bodies stronger through an elevated level of killer cells; it raises our spirits and makes us happy.
Get out there and discover yourself.
Leave what weighs you down and return feeling free.
In addition, walking strengthens the bones and lowers our cholesterol while improving our blood levels. The brain is supplied with an extra dose of oxygen, we relax, and our metabolism and cardiovascular system are stimulated. You will also benefit from the altitude of 1,100 metres. The health-promoting effect of such a height has been verified by the height study AMAS 2000. Already many decades ago, our great-grandfather knew about the healing power of San Genesio/Jenesien. Your Hotel Saltus advantage: As our guest, you will receive the Bolzano Bozen Card for no additional fee and can use the public hiking shuttle as well as the mountain railway completely free of charge. Our recommendations for hiking around San Genesio/Jenesien in South Tyrol include the Castle Trail (Castelronda/Burgenweg) in Bolzano/Bozen, the hike to the Stone Men (Omini di Pietra/Stoanernen Mandln) – one of the most beautiful vantage points of the Val Sarentino/Sarntal Alps – and the Trail of Legends (Sentiero delle leggende/Sagenweg) on the Salto/Salten. For those who like to travel on two wheels, the Hotel Saltus offers a lockable bicycle cellar and numerous signposted cycle paths through sunny South Tyrol.
