Informationen zu Zmailer Hof
Situated above the valley of Merano, the "Zmailer-Hof" mountain hut boasts splendid views over the Adige Valley and is a popular hiking destination. Some parts of the old mountain hut, such as the kitchen, corridor and the beautiful frescoes in the entrance hall, are protected as part of our cultural heritage. Guests can sample home-made local delicacies on the sunny terrace or in the welcoming "Stube". Visiting the "Zmailer-Hof" is a must even if it is just to sample our home-made fruit juices.

Take a break at a "Hofschank"
The Hofschank inns are located next to farms outside the classic wine-making region. Therefore they don’t produce their own wines but guests are in for a treat with their very own home-made juices, wines from South Tyrol and the delicious local dishes they serve. They only use fresh, genuine ingredients sourced from local farms, and these have a unique flavour.
The essence of Hofschank
Fine foods from the mountain hut and the countryside
The Zmailerhof mountain hut is a farm with 20 animals. The following ingredients are sourced from the surrounding countryside and mountain huts: beef, milk, vegetables, apples, grapes, plums, cherries, raspberries, currants, elderflower, potatoes, and cauliflower. And they make their own wine, jam, vinegar, sauerkraut, fruit juices, and syrups.
Healthy and delicious
Fresh culinary delights served here
We only serve seasonal ingredients from our own vegetable garden and consequently there are different dishes every season. Any of the fruits of nature which we cannot use right away will be prepared according to traditional recipes. From A for acquavite to Z for zuppa d'orzo (barley soup), from season to season, our farmers will produce everything that a gourmet could possibly wish for.
