Leisure activities at the Familotel in South Tyrol

Nature and sports enthusiasts will find their absolute paradise at Engel Gourmet & Spa. Hiking, cycling, climbing, horse riding and skiing: everyone can do what they feel like doing here. And the most important thing is to capture the breathtaking and impressive mountain panorama of the Dolomites! Whether it’s with your camera or heart.


network of 530 km of hiking trails awaits you in the Eggental valley. The family hotel in South Tyrol organises four guided hikes a week here and two guided family hikes, where children will also enjoy hiking. Nature lovers will be thrilled by the guided herb hikes. At the Familotel you can borrow hiking maps, backpacks, hiking poles and rain gear free of charge.


Whether you prefer a mountain bike, road bike or e-bike. Whether your thing is road bike excursions over mountain passes, downhills through forests and down mountains, sticking leisurely to asphalted routes and forest paths or powering up to the Dolomites’ summits. Cycling enthusiasts will certainly find their right discipline in the area around the family hotel. Guided bike tours can be organised on request.


The Obereggen and Carezza ski areas make winter miracles come true. In addition to snow parks and children’s slopes, there are 32 ski huts. A ski room at the hotel ensures that your ski equipment is perfectly prepared for the next day and a free transfer takes you and your family to the Obereggen ski area. Guided ski excursions are also offered there 3 times a week. But of course, in addition to fun on the slopes on skis and snowboard, there are also winter and snowshoe hikes, toboggan runs, cross-country ski trails and ski tours.

Horse riding 

The Zyprianhof and Angerle Alm riding stables are very close to the children’s hotel in South Tyrol. Taster courses, riding excursions, riding lessons and carriage rides as well as the very special “star rides” are offered here. Familotel Engel will be happy to organise individual riding lessons on request.


The Dolomites are true heaven on earth for all climbing enthusiasts. At least alpine climbing brings climbers a little closer to heaven. In the Rosengarten and Latemar area there are many via ferratas that not only provide the ultimate feeling of freedom, but also an adrenaline rush. Guided climbing and mountain tours are offered on request for those who are not yet familiar with the area. 
Climbing and trial climbing courses for the whole family are organised for beginners at the Rosengarten Alpine Centre. Anyone who is not comfortable with the extreme heights involved in climbing can try out the forest high ropes course in Obereggen.


Day trip tips in the region

There is plenty to discover around the family hotel in Welschnofen for explorers of all ages.

Tip 1: Bozen

Bozen, just 30 minutes away, offers you a medieval city centre. You will find the South Tyrol Museum of Archaeology there with the Neolithic natural mummy called “Ötzi the Iceman”. Nearby are the impressive 13th-century Maretsch Castle and the Cathedral of the Assumption of Mary, built in Romanesque and Gothic styles.

Tip 2: Lake Carezza

Lake Carezza is a protected natural monument and lies below the Carezza Pass, at the foot of the Latemar massif. Here you can experience magical moments, because the mountain lake is known for its deep green water and for the breathtaking mountain scenery that rises behind the forest.

Tip 3: Schlern-Rosengarten Nature Park

40 minutes away and in the middle of the South Tyrolean Dolomites is the Schlern-Rosengarten Regional Park. The highest peaks here are the Rosengartenspitze and the Kesselkogel.
