Tales from the Marica
Every day is unique and brings totally new experiences. In any season and at any time of the day. Let us tell you about our experiences, which will make your stay in the 4-star Hotel Marica also unique.
Have you already tried snow shoe hiking?
To help put you in the winter mood, here are some pictures that capture the fun of snow shoe hiking. Our winter season starts december 20th.
On snow shoes to the Stradivaris
The thick, soft blanket of snow swallows all sounds and worries. Wrapped up well, we plod our way through the fresh snow, sinking in a little, with just the sound of our breath. We are surrounded by a thick forest of centuries-old trees with a special history: the famous Stradivari violins were in fact made with the spruce wood from Val d’Ega. As still as snowflakes we listen to their sweet melody.
King Laurin and his rose garden
The sun shines brightly above Carezza. We take the cable car up to the snow-covered slopes below the legendary Catinaccio, “Rosengarten” in German. They say the castle of the dwarf king Laurin is the highest peak of all, and in the cool air between Catinaccio, Croda di Re Laurino and the Latemar, he created a splendid rose garden for his beloved Simhilde. In the snow, we still see the silver threads he once spun over the rose bushes.
Manfred and Gabriel are taking our Ex-Aussie to their favorite powder spots with amazing views. A tour on a beautiful sunny day is the best preparation for our upcoming ski tour weeks!

Magic moments in the Dolomites. Come with us and to special excursions with special adventures.
Blind date with a smooth finish
The sun glows one last time over the high mountain peaks, bathing the terrace of the Hotel Marica in a soft light that is reflected in the first glass that we are tasting today...

Obereggen Night Show
Every Monday evening we will bring you directly from the Marica to the spectacular night show. The Obereggen Ski – and Snowoardschool puts on a spectacular demonstration show including tricks, fireworks, dancing pist-groomers and an open-air disco.
A Sunday aperitif to showcase our talents
Every Sunday it is our pleasure to be able to listen to gifted young musicians from our valley. For many of them it is their first appearance and some have even formed a group specially for the occasion. A few artists have also revealed themselves among our staff!
Each season has its charm, but spring in our country is really something special! While you can explore the last snowfields with skis, it’s already possible to do hiking, mountain biking and road cycling through the valleys.
Southtyrol land of mountains and lakes
Fantastic choice for road bike and Mountain bike. Our "Marica" is situated at 1100m between the vineyards in the valley and the peaks of the Dolomites. Today we went to Bolzano and the lake Caldaro. We enjoyed not only the panorama, but also our ice cream.
Highlight of the Balance Week
A treat for your eyes, ears, heart and soul! As the sun slowly sets we went on a twilight hike accompanied by the sound of song, wind instruments and drums in combination with theatre and artistic performances. A magical and relaxing experience we will never forget.
The dance of the witches!
What a night: we celebrated Carnival with an awesome costume-party! Playing funny games and dancing to the rhythms of DJ Bernd till late. This was definitely the highlight of our Carnival-week!
Our backpacker is back
After one year of traveling between Australia, New Zealand and South-east Asia our daughter Eleonore is finally back. Her conclusion: the world is awesome but nothing beats the wild beauty of the Dolomites! .
Our ski area Obereggen is the world's best ski area with up to 60 km of slopes
The world's largest test portal for ski areas, Skiresort.info, has given Obereggen and the Latemar Ski Center Latemar 17 awards and designated it a "top ski area." Obereggen is the test winner in the category "slope grooming" and overall winner in the category "best ski area with up to 60 km of slopes." Obereggen was designated the "best-kept secret" and won third place in Italy among the 25 best ski areas of Europe.
Searching for clues
Autumn is the time for hunting for tracks. The air is clear, it becomes silent on the mountain tops and the lifts stand still. We make our way cautiously to the peaks of the Dolomites, and suddenly there they are – the chamois! They jump nimbly over the craggy abysses, showing us the way towards unique places. In the summer we take our guests there, because we like to share the most beautiful places of our homeland with you!
Gathering food for winter
When we taste the delicious sun-ripened plums and apples that adorn our trees around Hotel Marica, we also think of our guests. Like squirrels we gather the fruits that our chef uses to conjure up all sorts of tasty treats: marinated plums, fine jams made with apples and plums, sweet apple purée and delicious apple chutney. Homemade souvenirs of summer – all available for you to taste at breakfast.
