    Three days by the lake

      The Seehotel Ambach

      Right on the shores of Lake Caldaro you will find an authentic gem of South Tyrolean architecture: the Seehotel Ambach, designed in the 1970s by the visionary architect Othmar Barth. With its Seventies atmosphere, bright colours and contemporary design, this unique hotel du lac will allow you to relax by the pool in its spacious and generous private park or take part in all the exciting activities taking place by the lake: swimming, windsurfing, stand-up paddle boarding and pedal boating.

      The Seehotel
      The "Badehaus"

      And from here you can stroll, hike or cycle through the gentle surroundings of Caldaro, among the colours and scents of vineyards and apple orchards.  And then finish off with an open-air dinner on the hotel terrace as the sun silently sets behind the hills.

      And after three days by the lake, new geographies and settings await you in Castelrotto, where the Schgaguler Hotel, designed by architect Peter Pichler, will open the doors to its three sleek and sculptural towering, sloped roofs.

Two different concepts of holiday, one vacation in South Tyrol, to discover the shapes of beauty.
