HOLZNER

FAMILY

In 1908, a young hotel manager from Meran, Hans Holzner, opened the Hotel Holzner in Oberbozen. At the time, nobody thought about the possibility of this house continuing its tradition of hospitality for more than 100 years, providing a peaceful retreat full of relaxation and pleasant experiences for both young and old. Not even Hans Holzner himself dared to dream seeing his family governing the hotel for four generations!

Our

philosophy

Family-run hotel

steeped in history

The Holzner has been family-owned for 4 generations now, for more than 100 years. Our present and our future are defined by the turbulent past of our region South Tyrol. We are aware of our entrepreneurial as well as human responsibilities. Hence, we wish to participate in the creation of our local social life through sustainable and open-minded actions. In doing so, we always keep our eyes on the generations yet to come.

Hospitality that

is high-brow

All our strategic decisions and investments reflect the sustainable actions that drive them. Thus, the architectural development of our house should emphasize the preservation of the hotel’s historic character, while increasing holiday comfort and of course optimizing working processes. The manageable and convenient size today results in being one of our great strengths as it enables that personalized service we highly value in a good vacation. Whether service or hotel amenities, we strive for only the best quality always!

Hotel with

a heart

We aim at offering our employees a comfortable and secure workplace as well as a place that feels like a home. Our guests we wish to provide with casual, relaxed and shared enjoyment, thus conveying joy of being and a sense of comfort and belonging. Today our offers mainly target families with a sense for pleasure and gourmet. All generations should be able to find the vacation they yearn for at The Holzner.

Living

history

An establishment with a history of its own understands how important history can be. Taking a glimpse back into the past of Parkhotel Holzner is like looking back at the history of the country it is based in, at the history of every single individual who has come and gone here, a history closely related to that of the Holzner family itself.

SUSTAINABLE

thinking

The Holzner has been a family business for 110 years. Four generations of the family have formed our past and present, inspiring us to take part in shaping the future. Paying tribute to our sustainability concept, we were awarded with the Condé Nast Johansens Award for Excellence 2016 in the category „Best for green practices.“
Our belief in sustainability led us to change over to renewable energies back in 2008. Since then, Holzner‘s bio-heating plant has been providing the entire hotel, the wellness area, the indoor and outdoor pools and the private houses of the Holzner family with clean energy from South Tyrolean wood chips. Last winter, the bio-heating plant was expanded to power all new areas of the house efficiently.
We are a partner company of the RittenCard benefit ticket, which allows our guests to leave their cars in the garage throughout their vacation. Additionally, there are several charging stations for e-cars on our premises.

We know that sustainability is as important to you as it is to us. Therefore, we want to make it easier for you to make your journey to Holzner as eco-friendly as possible. As part of our Sustainable Travel Package, we will send you the RittenCard in advance and cover the costs of the suitcase service. Inquire when booking.
