The summer in Venosta Valley smells like freshly mowed grass and warm soil. It tastes like ripe apricots and sparkling wine. The 3000-metre mountains invite you up to lofty heights while sunny patios will tempt you with the prospect of sweet idleness. At the hotel Weisses Kreuz, we are celebrating something that has almost been forgotten these days: Summer retreats. It means time out from everyday life – a wonderful opportunity to catch your breath and re-energize. On the mountain and in the valley. Per pedes and per pedales. For body and soul.
