Ice climbing along the Frötsch river


directly from Bad Ratzes on foot along the Frötschbach.
While the Langental is one of the most famous valleys for ice climbing in Europe, ice climbing on the Frötschbach is an insider tip.

- no previous technical knowledge is necessary
- Basic force should be present

To bring: crampon-proof shoes (one notch at the heel), wind jacket, 1 to 2 pairs of gloves (water-repellent, with Gripp Stop, fabric and fleece gloves are unsuitable)

The mountain guide supplies crampons, pickaxes, belts and helmets.

Minimum age: 14 years
Participants at least 2 persons


Unique ice formations
Ice is subject to constant change. Depending on precipitation and temperatures, the ice is constantly re-formed. This makes ice climbing a unique experience.

The only disadvantage is that the ice cascades are conquered in the shade.


Contribution towards expenses: the price depends on the number of participants. The hotel contributes to the expenses.

Guided winter hikes

You need not use the skis to discover the Alpe di Siusi. About 30 km of beaten and well-groomed hiking tracks will lead you to the most fascinating and faraway destinations. What seemed impossible only few decades ago is now a unique bonus of this plateau: it can be enjoyed on foot! Every year, more and more enthusiastic winter hikers join the skiers who spend their holidays here.

As winter turns into spring the area becomes more and more fascinating. The first snow-free corners on the sunny southern slopes can be found in March, with the first spring flowers. The sun starts shining on the old round beams of the barn walls and announces the awakening of nature.

Join our guide Günther Vettori each Friday. Who wants to, can come back by horse drawn sledge.

On Wednesdays evening you will find Günther in the hotel were he explains his winter hike and all other hikes he organises during the week. Ask for his programme.

Costs € 5.00 per adult and walk
