Guided hikes

Because hiking together is twice as fun, Elisabeth and Hias can show you the best places. Experience the beauty of nature, the tranquillity, the power of the mountains, the gentleness of the alpine pastures – you’re never more in touch with nature than when you’re walking. Our guided hikes at the Hotel Handlerhof take place 3 times a week, and the destinations and difficulty level depend on the participants and the weather.
