Visitors get easy access to UNESCO's Dolomites and cultural hubs like Bolzano

Lichtenstern, Italy, November 2019 … Earlier this summer, the ADLER Hotel Group opened a brand-new hotel in the foothills of the Dolomites mountain range: ADLER Lodge RITTEN, https://www.adler-resorts.com/en/adler-lodge-ritten/73-0.html,  a sister to established properties like ADLER Spa Resort Thermae in Tuscany, is set on the Ritten plateau, which since the 17th century has been a well-known weekend getaway spot for city-dwelling Italians.

South Tyrol is Italy's northernmost province and was once part of the Austro-Hungarian empire. The German language is still heard quite a bit, and the lush, Alpine landscape and chalet-style buildings evoke the area's history.

Although ADLER Lodge RITTEN is set on forested landscape that feels completely removed from the rest of the world, if guests are looking to explore, they can easily visit the city of Bolzano, which Forbes recently short-listed as one of the best Italian spots for a fall or winter holiday.

At ADLER Lodge RITTEN, visitors can enjoy a relaxing winter holiday that's delightfully removed from the bustling Dolomites ski areas. Of course, guests can still enjoy activities like snowshoeing and hiking across the sparkling white snow, or head up to the beautiful panoramic area known as the Rittner Horn. 

A classic steam sauna, a Finnish sauna and a herbal sauna set in the forest are also especially welcoming during the chilly weather, and the warm, saltwater infinity pool is open year-round for those who are craving a dip. And for those simply looking to relax with a glass of wine and a good book, there are plenty of fireside spots perfect for lounging.

The hotel is close to the berbozen/Soprabolzano cable car stop, and it's a breathtaking, 12-minute ride down to Bolzano, with gondolas leaving every four minutes. The city is home to sites like the South Tyrol Museum of Archaeology, home to the 5,000-plus-year-old relic of Ötzi the Iceman; the 13th-century Mareccio Castle, which is surrounded by vineyards; and the Duomo di Bolzano cathedral, a gorgeous blend of Romanesque and Gothic architecture. ADLER Lodge RITTEN guests looking to explore the rest of the area will be happy to know that Renon’s historic narrow-gauge railway, the Rittnerbahn, stops just 200 meters from the hotel at the Stella station, so a car is not needed during the stay.

Travelers looking to head east into the Dolomites' mountainous area can can opt to stay at ADLER Lodge ALPE, a cozy spa hotel is set within the Alpe di Siusi Landscape Protection Area. The New York Times wrote that it “mirrors the rustic little dwellings of its neighbors, but in palatial form.”

Slightly to the northeast, in the center of the impossibly charming mountain town of Ortisei, are ADLER Spa Resort DOLOMITI, a popular spot with families, and its sister hotel, the smaller, adults-only ADLER Spa Resort BALANCE. Both hotels have architecture that’s beautifully integrated into the alpine setting and offer excellent access to Dolomite Superski, one of the largest ski areas in Europe.

The Sanoner family has been in the hotel business since 1810, when they opened their first small inn, and the five hotels are currently managed by the family's seventh generation Along with ADLER Lodge RITTEN, there are three spa resorts in Italy's Dolomites mountain region and one in Tuscany. All ADLER spas are renowned for providing not only relaxation and beauty services, but also modern western medicine and alternative healing methods. For guests wishing to delve deeper into improving their health, there are also two ADLER MED medical competence centers, one at ADLER Spa Resort THERMAE in Tuscany and the other at ADLER Spa Resort BALANCE in the Dolomites. Each has its own team of doctors from disciplines like general medicine, laboratory medicine, aesthetic medicine, modern Mayr medicine, homeopathy, herbal medicine and nutrition.
