The Zirmerhof Hotel and Residence is a beautifully-located estate at 500 metres above sea level in the village of Rifiano/Riffian, at the entrance to the Passiria Valley and the Texelgruppe Nature Park. Tucked away in the green at just 5 kilometres from the spa town of Merano/Meran, the Zirmerhof is an oasis of quietness and relaxation. The lifts to the Hirzer, Hochmuth and Merano 2000 hiking areas are all within a few minutes’ car or bus drive.
The Merano area is blessed with a mild, Mediterranean climate that is perfect to enjoy long days out in the great outdoors – especially in spring and autumn, when the warm temperatures and fresh mountain air of the Passiria valley invite to explore and indulge.
Prepare for a holiday with fantastic views.
Our 3-star-superior hotel offers the perfect ambience for an unforgettable holiday in Merano and Environs. As hosts, we strive to offer you the best experience from all points of view. Our guest rooms are equipped with all mod cons to ensure you a regenerating break. Our chefs will be surprising you daily with delectable, healthy menus. Our hotel also features a spa area where you can relax and recharge after a hike or bike tour. Speaking of which, take a look at our weekly programme – it includes guided hikes and bike tours, culinary events like a series of tastings and more.
In the period from early January to late June and from mid-October to early November, we offer our hotel guests a complimentary MeranCard which grants free use of all public transport in South Tyrol and several lift facilities, as well as free or discounted entry to more than 80 museums and a 10% discount on bike rental at Sportservice Erwin Stricker.
The Zirmerhof hotel is closed during the winter season, but the Zirmerhof apartments [LINK Residence Winter rates] are open and ready to welcome you all year.
The Zirmerhof estate includes a family-owned residence with cosy holiday apartments that offer the perfect alternative for those who like to spend their holidays in complete freedom while still enjoying the hotel’s amenities, including the spa and our complimentary activity programme. As a guest of our residence, you can also book the bed and breakfast option (+ € 14.00 per person/day) or the dinner (+ € 29.00 per person/day). Bread delivery service is also available for guests who choose the self-catering option.
Please take into account that catered accommodation options, the pools and the wellness area are only available when the hotel is open, i.e. from March till November.
All our holiday apartments are modern in style and feature either a furnished balcony or a garden terrace. Bed linen, towels, bathrobes and a spa basket are provided and changed regularly in the case of longer stays.
Our family’s organic fruit farm – the Landhaus Freiburgerhof – is also located on the Zirmerhof grounds. Just like our hotel and residence, the farm is surrounded by fruit orchards and offers beautiful views of the South Tyrolean mountains. If you are seeking to spend a holiday at an original South Tyrolean organic farm, get in touch – we will be delighted to tell you more!
