Tradition & history of the Gratschwirt, 3 star hotel in South Tyrol
Our 3 star hotel in South Tyrol, Dobbiaco is one of the oldest inns in Val Pusteria boasting a history dating back to the year 1500. Our family has dedicated itself to the care of our guests for 113 years.
In Roman times, our hotel was a well-known resting place for travellers along the road connecting the north and south. Evidence of this can found in the form of a Roman milestone housed in the chapel next to the house. Now restored, the milestone can be admired inside the chapel.
The Gratschwirt originally had a horse resting and changing station, which brought in considerable extra income to the former owners of the inn. Over time, the property changed hands several times until Josef Pircher acquired the "Gratschgut" on 4 February 1904. The Pircher family have continually modernised and renovated the building since then, transforming it into the highly appreciated and much-frequented restaurant and hotel it is today.
The Gratsch chapel
Your holiday at the Gratschwirt, 3 star hotel in South Tyrol in the Dolomites, starts in historical surroundings: Another vestige of the hotel’s important past can be found right next to the hotel, the adjoining "Gratsch Chapel". Built at the end of the 17th and early 18th century, no carriage ever passed by without stopping here.
Combining tradition and modernity since 1500.
Even though the Hotel Gratschwirt in Dobbiaco is a modern business today, every corner of the house still retains strong ties with its historic past. A successful blend of tradition, hospitality and modern comforts, the hotel immediately bestows its guests with a welcoming sense of home and a feeling of belonging. Cosy lounges, excellent cuisine, a friendly atmosphere and, of course, the breathtaking landscape of the Three Peaks quickly cause everyday cares to fade away.
