Your winter holiday at the Alpenrose in Brixen - snowy and ultra-cosy!
A holiday at the Alpenrose is just right in the snowy season! Thanks to its central location the ski resort of Plose on the other side of the valley can be reached in next to no time, whilst other skiing areas such as Gitschberg Jochtal, Seiser Alp/Val Gardena and the Kronplatz are not far away – perfect for an active winter holiday in Brixen!
Be it downhill skiing, snowboarding or cross-country skiing on perfectly groomed slopes, tobogganing, ice skating, back-country skiing or winter hiking and snowshoeing – the range of leisure activities available in and around Brixen is so varied that there is no chance of anyone getting bored!
Simply spend a couple of wonderful winter’s days skiing on the slopes of the Plose or winter hiking / snowshoeing right outside your front door on the Pfeffersberg. And, once back from your trip, there’s pure relaxation on the agenda at your holiday apartment with sauna.
The Dolomiti Superski ski pass gives you access to a total of 12 ski resorts in the Dolomites with over 1,200 km of sunny slopes and 30 snow parks in the Dolomiti Superski resort. The admission ticket to paradise for skiing and snowboarding fans! From the Alpenrose 4 of the 12 areas can be accessed with ease: Gitschberg Jochtal/Plose, Seiser Alp, Val Gardena and Kronplatz!
Christmas markets, known here as “Christkindl Markets” are as much part of South Tyrol as speck and the mountains! For this reason, in every town here, as well as many larger and smaller villages and even in the mountains, you’ll find romantic Christkindl markets during Advent and right into January that give this special time even more charm. For example the Christkindl markets on the cathedral square in Brixen, the Medieval Christmas in Klausen, the Christmas markets in Sterzing and Bolzano enchant visitors year after year.
Skiing & snowboarding
The ski resort of Plose, Brixen’s “home mountain”, is, thanks to its proximity to the Alpenrose, ideal for skiing and snowboarding. The highlight is South Tyrol’s longest slope – the Trametsch - at 9 km long!
We recommend that freestyle snowboarders make one or more visits to the Plose Fun Park.
Snowshoeing, back-country and cross-country skiing
Villanderer Berg right around the corner is a back-country skier’s paradise in every respect: both in summer and winter alike! 6 snowshoeing trails and countless possibilities for back-country skiing tempt snow lovers upwards. On the 2.5 km-long Villanderer Alp cross-country skiing trail, cross-country skiers who like to enjoy peace and quiet in nature in either skating or classical style, will feel especially at home.
Those who prefer to hurtle down the mountains by toboggan will find an exciting, 6 km-long run, the RudiRun, on the Plose. This is by no means only something for families with children! In the immediate vicinity there are also the family toboggan run on the Villanderer Alp and the Fane Alp toboggan run in Vals.
Ice skating enthusiasts can indulge their hobby in the indoor rink in Brixen and race round the ice or do pirouettes where even famous teams such as the Italian national ice hockey team or HC Vityaz from Russia like to train. Over the Christmas period you can also enjoy a romantic skate on the ice rink at Brixen Cathedral.
