Passionate hosts

May we introduce ourselves?

Griast enk! How lovely of you to drop by. We are the Girtler family, your second generation hosts at Hotel Jaufentalerhof near Vipiteno/Sterzing. As South Tyroleans attached to our home, we live and love the Valgiovo/Jaufental valley, whose beauty is obvious: vast coniferous forests, gentle alpine meadows, rugged mountain peaks and rustic villages form the breathtaking backdrop around Hotel Jaufentalerhof, our hotel in Racines/Ratschings in the Valgiovo/Jaufental valley. Anyone spending their holidays here has found a place where time stands still – far away from the tourist strongholds. Our hotel’s superb location near Vipiteno/Sterzing, at the end of the valley, without any traffic or noise, allows you to get to know South Tyrol's nature and culture in a very special way and to spend a relaxing break in rhythm with the seasons. Let us whisk you away to Racines/Ratschings – you will find your way back to your roots at our hotel near Vipiteno/Sterzing.

No indulgence is temporary, because the impression it leaves is permanent.
