So, tell me, where’ve you come from? Are you lost? Then come over here, sit down. You’re very lucky, you know. You know why? Because the Zallinger isn’t an easy place to find. While you’re here, why don’t you stay a bit? We want to tell you something. About cute blondes and fabulous women. About genies and shooting stars. That’s perked you up, hasn’t it? Then put your phone away and put your feet up, you can’t get reception up here anyhow.
Hello, you lucky thing!
Welcome to the Zallinger
A holiday on the Alpe di Siusi
So, you want to know what the Zallinger is exactly? A mountain lodge? A chalet village? Hotel? Alpine hut? None of the above. Or let’s put it another way. A little bit of everything. But one thing we do know for sure. A few days here on the Alpe di Siusi with us will do you the world of good. It’s true, fresh mountain air and a panoramic view of the Dolomites are like a veritable fountain of youth. And when you go down into the valley again, back to your life, you’ll realise that true luxury is found in the simple things in life. Fancy another coffee? Or maybe a glass of wine?

How long has the Zallinger been around? Quite a while. Trust us, sometimes we can’t believe what we’ve made out of our mountain hut over the last few years ourselves. Some say we’ve created a miniature paradise. And it’s true. Up here, all is still right with the world. I wonder if the fox and the hare say goodnight to one another here? More than likely! Because that’s what we’re all about. Leaving behind all the bells and whistles, the dashing around and the social media stuff. The world is just too beautiful to look at through the lens of a square box. You’re afraid you’ll get bored up here with us? Let us worry about that. We’ll soon get you moving…

Are we related? Yes, but not in the way you might think! We are aunt and nephew. An unusual team perhaps, but you know what it’s like, life often plays the strangest tunes and has strung us two together, so it seems. It lets us live out our fantasies and dreams. And we’ve got plenty of them. Take a look over there. We breed these beautiful Haflinger horses ourselves. We are also quite fond of beekeeping, distilling schnapps and hiking. Now tell us a little something about yourself. We want to know who you are and what you do!

How did our vehicles get this name? Simple! First of all because the four-wheel drive Jeep and snow cat bring our greatest happiness up to us – guests like you. And secondly because our Glücksbringer taxi brings everything you need. But there is one thing you need to know: nothing is taken for granted up here on the Alpe di Siusi. Every matchbox and tomato have to go the way of everything else at the Zallinger – from the valley up to us. It wasn’t so long ago that we had to carry everything up on foot or on the backs of our Haflingers. But we’ll tell you that story another time.
The early bird…
catches the mountain cheese. And freshly baked bread. And delicious coffee. What do you mean, you’re not a morning person? Well, you’ll have to see where you can stay. Don’t worry, we’re only pulling your leg. But lying in bed for too long is not a good idea at the Zallinger, we only serve breakfast until 9.30 am. But it has to be said, we do only serve the best that the Alpe di Siusi has to offer.
So, you’re usually a couch potato at home? Don’t worry, we’ll get you moving. At the Alpe di Siusi, you’ll see it’s so beautiful, you’ll automatically want to go head outdoors. To go hiking. Biking. Mountaineering. Horse riding. Skiing. Cross-country skiing.
Unwind, you’re on holiday! It’s perfectly all right if you just want to rest. The tranquillity and seclusion at the Zallinger will turn your rushing thoughts into peaceful silence. Our SPA with all its amenities will do the rest.
No motorway noise, no clanging trams, no smartphone ringing. You’ll see how wonderfully peaceful it is up here with us. And how restful sleeping at over 2,000 metres can be. Come with us. We’ll show you our 6 chalets, each with 4 alpine rooms and our new 12 double rooms in the main house.
We South Tyroleans can do a lot of things. But we’re really good at cooking. What do you fancy? Maybe you’d like to try the fluffiest Kaiserschmarrn in the world? Oh, you’re more of a savoury person? That’s perfect. We’ll rustle up a portion of dumplings for you. South Tyrol tastes great, you’ll see.
