Leave your mark: Snowshoe hiking at Eggen

Snowshoe hiking is a winter sports trend today, also here at Eggen. Here you will find a varied panorama of possibilities. Snowshoe hiking allows you to discover the quiet side of winter, far away from the hustle and bustle of the ski areas. Paths through snow-covered valleys or wide alpine pastures, but also alpine tours to high peaks, with snowshoes you can get almost everywhere.

Mountains in flames

Friday's we enjoy together with all the Dolomiti Hotels the magic sunset under the Rosengarten

Biking gives you wings

There is nothing better than exploring the beautiful mountains by bike. Full concentration on movement, nature, smells and noises - this frees and gives wings.


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.

From our kitchen: Schlutzkrapfen

Chef Luca's menu today features a traditional South Tyrolean dish: Schlutzkrapfen! Schlutzkrapfen are made with a mixture of rye and wheat flour. The filling traditionally consists of a spinach and pot combination. The dish is served with parmesan and butter.

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.

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...

"We stayed in a very large room, with very spacious bathroom and separate toilet. The owners are very welcoming and helpful in giving tips for our snowshoe hiking (the area is great for winter and snowshoe hiking). The breakfast was excellent and the dinners were delicious, every course was of a very high quality. We have stayed in many Vitalpina hotels (all very good) but this one stands out for service, hospitality, atmosphere and delicious food!"
