Family Hotel Gutenberg ****: Being creative in nature
Surrounded by apple orchards and chestnut trees, the Family Hotel Gutenberg, our family hotel in Schenna above the spa town of Meran, impresses with its warm atmosphere. The Meran Waalweg hiking trail passes right in front of our front door. The family rooms and suites with panoramic views, playground, pools, sauna, and wellness offer leave nothing to be desired. In the kids’ club we offer over 70 hours of entertainment per week, and the mini club starts from the age of 1.
The family hotel in Schenna, your holiday retreat in nature
These highlights make us unique:
- Forest and felt workshop
- Pony and Haflinger riding paddock
- Location directly on the hiking trails
- 3 playrooms
We stayed in a renovated room with a south-facing balcony and a great view of the Meran basin. We spent two wonderful and relaxing weeks in South Tyrol. The staff was always approachable, super friendly, and competent. When asked "Where are we going on holiday next year?", our seven-year-old answered without hesitation: "To the Gutenberg in Schenna again, of course."
A super beautiful family hotel. We arrived and felt at home. Great child care, incredibly tasty cuisine, very loving staff that fulfills every wish. And the host is also always present, he works closely together with his entire team. Super nice. We’ll be back.
