Where else in South Tyrol can you enjoy a panoramic view over two main valleys (Val Pusteria in the east and Valle Isarco in the south) while relaxing in the sauna or enjoying a delicious drink on the terrace?
The Tratterhof****S - The Mountain Sky Hotel is located in sun-drenched Maranza, the picturesque village above the intersection of the Valle Isarco and the Val Pusteria valleys.

Skiers and snowboarders, on the other hand, climb the snow-covered slopes with the lifts...
Winter Hiking in the Winterwonderland

The necessary walking sticks and rucksack can be hired free of charge at the Tratterhof!

Each mastered hike is a special highlight for the little ones, which makes them proud of themselves!
The host family
Tratte, that comes from the Old German and means as much as "small piece of meadow". Hundreds of years ago in every village the farm with the smallest piece of meadow and thus with the smallest property was called Tratterhof. So it was with the Tratterhof in Maranza. The once small mountain farm has now been owned by the Gruber family for three generations and experienced a beautiful success story. In the old farm, where animals and humans once lived under one roof, there is now a beautiful 4-star superior wellness and hiking hotel, which is an oasis of relaxation for many guests both in summer and winter. The Bergidyll Hotel Tratterhof, now renamed Mountain Sky Hotel Tratterhof, has been in existence for almost 10 years now and is constantly being changed, expanded and improved!
Even if there is nothing left of the ancient “Pension Tratterhof”, which opened in 1981, the host family Gruber-Hinteregger has never forgotten or neglected the main reason for their business, namely to be the host! That's what's most important to them today, just as it was then! Many guests, who have already been guests at the Pension Tratterhof and now relax at the Mountain Sky Hotel Tratterhof, confirm that the Gruber-Hinteregger family and the cordiality in the whole house are still the same as they were 30 years ago! The Gruber-Hinteregger family and the entire Tratterhof team are always concerned about the well-being of all guests, always have a nice word and a friendly smile for you and see the guests as friends who are visiting the Mountain Sky Hotel Tratterhof!
