Design, Art, Gourmet, Wine and Spa in a Romantic Hotel
Romantik Hotel Turm
Directly at the foot of the Sciliar/Schlern Massif, in the World Heritage Dolomites, lies the Romantik Hotel Turm. Modern design has been implemented within these ancient walls, with a strong sense of discernment, seen especially in the luxurious suites. Turm guests looking for traditionally romantic dining will prefer the medieval Tyrolean Stuben parlors. There are also bright dining rooms in the modern style, which have large windows that offer views of the imposing Sciliar Massif.
The Pramstrahler family is extremely art-minded: works by Kokoschka, Klimt and Picasso hang in the traditional structure, which dates from the thirteenth century. Hotelier and gourmet chef Stefan Pramstrahler is known for his creative approach and his new take on traditional South Tyrolean cuisine. A driving force behind a cultural and culinary gourmet festival called Völser Kuchlkastl, preserving and refining Schlutzkrapfen ravioli, Knödel dumplings of all kinds, roast venison, fenugreek flour snacks, and other traditional regional specialties has always been important to him.
At Grottnerhof, the thirteen-century family estate where wine is grown and two stylish suites are located, Stefan Pramstrahler has made his wine dream come true: on steeply sloping vineyards, white wines thrive here, named after characterful birds, including the Pica Pinot blanc, the Bubo Sauvignon, the Tetrix Gewürztraminer, and the Corax Pinot noir. These are very elegant – even boldly idiosyncratic – fine wines that make special moments during the holiday even more special. Katharina Pramstrahler is qualified sommelier, so even the most demanding wine lovers will be in good hands. In 2014, the Pramstrahler’s passion for wine paid off when they won the Südtirol – Preis für Weinkultur 2014 (2014 South Tyrol Award for Wine Culture).
