Explore San Candido and the Dolomites

The top attractions in San Candido and surroundings

What you simply cannot miss when on holiday in San Candido, you ask? There is plenty to see and do. San Candido is not only known for its unique location amidst the Italian Dolomites but also for its many churches, museums and the beautiful shopping promenade in the pedestrian zone with lovely bars along the way. Many of the town’s attractions are within walking distance from our hotel. San Candido’s surroundings too have a lot to offer …

 

DoloMythos – The largest Museum about the Dolomites
You will find yourself on the trail of the dinosaurs. Discover the legends and myths about the Dolomites, fossilized landscapes and find out more about the biggest gold findings in the Alps. A must-see for the whole family. The museum is located in the town centre and pedestrian zone of San Candido.

No matter if you prefer ski, snowboard or sled – all snow lovers will find the perfect conditions for a great winter holiday in the Monte Baranci Ski Area with its picture-perfect slopes and a fun park. And once the snow is gone, you just hop on the summer toboggan run “Fun Bob” and race down the rail track. Moreover, there is two climbing facilities, a tubing run and many events and festivals to make your stay as colourful as possible!
Experience culture with all senses
If you are interested in art and culture, we recommend you take a stroll through San Candido with its many churches and chapels. One of the most famous sites worth a visit is the Collegiate Church, considered the most important and beautiful Romanesque sacred building in the Alps. Or how about a visit to the Bagni di San Candido – once a Grand Hotel and health spa, an impressive building, left to the ravages of time after being partly destroyed during the First World War.

Here’s our recommendations: our very own mount Haunold, the mountains Helm, Croda Rossa di Sesto and Monte Piano, the Tre Cime di Lavaredo with a visitor’s centre in Dobbiaco, the pasture Prato Piazza, as well as the lakes Lake Misurina and Lago di Braies. And many more …
San Candido & surroundings
It is not your first time here and you already know San Candido and surroundings inside out? We have some more recommendations for you: how about a visit to one of two Messner Mountain Museums in Brunico Castle or on top of the Plan de Corones. Or have you been to the Museum of Mining in Prettau yet? Another must-see: the waterfalls of the Reinbach stream in Riva di Tures. Or if you are looking for something closer to your hotel: you can also have a great time around Lake Dobbiaco or at the Assling Zoo.
