There is a jewel set in the wonderful crown that is the Dolomites, and it is Fiè allo Sciliar, in that natural paradise that is the Alpe di Siusi. And, if possible, there is a jewel set in this jewel which is located at the foot of one of the symbolic mountains of South Tyrol, and it is the Romantik Hotel Turm. Which merges with the village characterized by the typical bell tower with an onion roof, as if it were a fortress perched around the central church of the village. Indeed, it is really a fortress, modern and luxurious, but at the same time enclosed in five historic towers (the oldest is from the 13th century), embellished with over 2,000 works of art, a super-luxury Spa worthy of a true five-star. A mix expertly blended and offered to guests by the histrionic owner Stephan Pramstrahler, with his wife Kathi and their five children. In short, a real jewel where letting yourself be pampered is not a vice, but daily normality. And with Christmas approaching, letting yourself be tempted is very easy – Photo

5 TOWERS AND MYSTICAL SAUNA - The romanticism of the Turm comes from the evocative combination of history, art and design. The hotel is a magnificent labyrinth that winds through different levels and different historical periods, to be discovered step by step. From the ancient 13th century tower to Casa Kraiter with its round tower. The owl tower, the 'Wagenhaus' or the house of the wagons, the falcon tower were newly built. Each place has its own style that distinguishes it, but it is above all the 5 towers that give the hotel an unmistakable character. Between them, several terraces at various heights offer secluded and welcoming spaces, to enjoy the splendid and priceless panorama outside. Inside, guests get lost among the more than 2,000 works of art, some sculptures here and there, but above all many paintings of immense value, from Picasso to Dalì, from Guttuso to Klimt, and many others. Without forgetting to be pampered by the Spa. Starting with the black pool , which continues outside with heated water. And from where to admire the wonder of the Sciliar, which stands majestically right in front of the swimming pool. And then the whirlpool, the Wolfsbrunnen wolf fountain and the flower garden that is covered in snow in winter: the Spa offers truly 360° well-being. Complete with a mystical sauna, always with a panoramic view of the Sciliar. And for sports enthusiasts, here is the inimitable natural rock wall 15 meters high for climbing... totally inside the hotel! Unique and unimaginable, until you see it (and maybe try it).

THE KITCHEN AND THE FARM - Quoted by Guide Michelin and Gambero Rosso, the restaurant of the Romantik Hotel Turm boasts 14 Gault Millau points and 3 spoons in the Aral Schlemmer Atlas guide. An excellent gastronomy, a true workshop of flavors where the quality of the products takes first place. Authentic cuisine commanded by chef Mathieu Domagala and his brigade. And for those who love isolation and good wine, the owner of the house Stephan Pramstrahler accompanies his guests to the Grottnerhof farm to taste the wines of his own production: 3 whites and 1 red. The Grottnerhof, another structure of the Pramstrahler family, stands in a secluded position, deliberately disconnected from the web and from the world, to offer a location of absolute peace in nature. Inside, charm and elegance mix with traditional rustic-chic style. The ancient and thick walls guard two design suites with different styles, while on the lower floor there are rooms that speak of the past. The cellar with the original barrels, the Selchküche, the room where cold cuts were smoked with the typical blackened ceiling, the authentic peasant Stube and the still functioning oven, the corridor with cross vaults.
