A must for natural lovers

In the Leitlhof located in the Pustertal you find perfect conditions and starting point for an „active relaxation vacation“, and tours in the surrounding mountains. The nearby nature reserve Fanes Alpine Senn Prags offers a variety of wonderful, turquoise-blue mountain lakes; probably best known is the Pragser wild lake. Particularly splendid  (and important; not as cold as the others) is the Dürrensee, Europe’s highest lake. From here the Drei Zinnen view is only a short walk.

Enjoy with a lasting effect close to nature

It is easy to feel at home in the Leitlhof and to relax and feast with a good conscience. The hotel is climate-neutral and, besides, is energy-self-sufficient due to the combination of an own cogeneration unit and solar energy. The natural materials, as for example the natural mucky plaster on the walls and the pieces of furniture made of local wood provide for quite a special, warm and healthy atmosphere. In the restaurant predominantly regional and biological products are used  – some of the ingredients are sourced from their own farm Mühlenhof  (e.g., the biology-lamb meat) or from the own garden (e.g., herbs and vegetables). And also as a guest you can contribute, while you leave the car in the garage and use the shuttle service of the hotel as well as the Mobilecard South Tyrol.
