Masterminds: Kurt Winkler of Winkler Hotels

Originating from a small farm with only six guest rooms, they are now an institution in the South Tyrolean hotel industry: the houses of the Winkler family enchant with sophisticated design, warm service and a family atmosphere.

In the 1970s, a small farm in the idyllic South Tyrolean Montal with just six guest rooms enchanted visitors so much with their cordial service, that they soon decided to expanded their premises; one of the first outdoor pools in the South Tyrolean hotel industry was created. Today Kurt, his sister Miriam and the entire Winkler family run the four Winkler hotels with great passion and joy. At the same time, no two houses are alike. They all score with individual character and serve guests with different demands, with a special ambience and all the amenities that make up a luxury hotel.

If you are looking for a wellness break, check into the five-star superior "Hotel Winkler". A wide range of massages and treatments paired with numerous saunas and a panoramic rooftop infinity pool ensure relaxing days; Plan de Corones with its ski slopes and hiking trails is just a few minutes away. Those who appreciate privacy will find a retreat for themselves and their loved ones in the "Purmontes - Private Luxury Chalet".

A natural time-out awaits in the "Sonnenhof", a highlight here is the beautiful garden with pond in a prime sunny location. Sports enthusiasts will find a weekly changing activity program, excursions to nearby golf courses and an in-house riding stable at the "Lanerhof". After an extensive day in nature, a physiotherapist is waiting in the house to take care of the pinching muscles.

The entire Winkler family ensures unforgettable days with the right portion of perfectionism and hearty down-to-earthness. The well-being of the guests is the focus, and so they strive to fulfill every wish. The employees play a decisive role in this, and they are therefore just as much a part of the family for the Winklers - because without passion and heart and soul for hospitality, no successful hotel group can be managed. The Winklers have never regretted this step in recent years.

What all the hotels have in common is their attention to detail, idyllic location and exclusive ambience. The cuisine also knows how to enchant: high-quality regional ingredients are used on the plates, from the extensive breakfast to the multi-course menus in the evening. There is no plateauing in the Winkler Hotels, they are always finding new ways to offer their guests an even better experience. The latest highlight is the exclusive suites in the "Lanerhof", welcoming guests with elegant ambience since May. The next generation is also working hard to ensure the future success of Winkler Hotels.
