Low-impact tourism in South Tyrol
Sustainability – a hot topic that concerns us all. We all can do something about and even the smallest contribution will have a huge impact.We're all important in this world and if we join forces we'll achieve big things.
SouthTyrol, a paradise on Earth. Nature, mountains and dream landscapes as far as the eye can reach. A special place that is dear to our hearts.
Why look for new distant places when you have Paradise on your doorstep?
Before travelling, consider the distance you'll have to cover and perhaps you'll decide to stay locally and save time: it's gentler on your soul, on the environment and a lot less stressful. On your holiday in Lana, you'll make the most of your time and relax more. Take more time for yourself, it just feels good!
Getting to Lana by carIf you get here by car, at the Landhaus am Gries in Lana you get a free parking space, where you can safely leave your car throughout your holiday. There's a bike rental just around the corner (price reductions with the MeranCard!). Explore the surroundings on two wheels, the most environmentally-friendly way to enjoy your holiday. Public transport in South Tyrol is excellent and relies on an incredibly well-developed network. Needless to say, Lana is no exception and whether you want to travel by bus, train or cable car, you're well-connected with the rest of the region.
Arriving to Lana by train & busIf you're travelling to Lana by train or bus, mother nature will be grateful and the new South Tyrol transfer will make your life easier. Moreover, you'll be able to travel stress-free and admire the wonderful nature from your seat on our comfortable buses and trains.
Another small request ...While South Tyrol also has a small airport in Bolzano, we urge you to consider all other possible means of travel – out of love and respect for the land, culture and nature. Please, try to fly as little as possible.

Local raw materials and sustainable living culture
We only use refillable cleaning products. We do our best to reduce and reuse plastic bottles as much as possible. On top of that, our cleaners use a steam cleaner, which is 100% ecological. Using a 200° dry steam, our steam cleaner is gentle on our employees while ensuring a sterile environment for our guests.
At this point, we want to thank you for being so diligent at separating your rubbish during your holiday. We appreciate it a lot ♥

Farmers' markets in South Tyrol
Welcome to one of my favourite topics: the farmers' market. In South Tyrol you can still find the traditional weekly farmer's market. It's priceless: buying seasonal fruits, vegetables and flowers directly from the farmers. In addition, you will find wonderful honey, eggs and South Tyrolean craftsmanship. Yes, the farmer's market is always a great experience that reaches far down into your soul.
Holiday in South Tyrol is a holiday for the heart and soul! ♥
With lots of love,
the Doná family and the team at the Landhaus am Gries
