Hotel Oswald, with its central position in Selva - at an altitude of approximately 1,536 meters above sea level - and the surrounding scenery of the Dolomites, listed as a UNESCO World NATURAL HERITAGE since 2009, has all one needs to guarantee the success of a skiing or of a hiking pleasure holiday.
Let a suggestive place like Val Gardena inspire your choices: it is the ideal starting point for myriads of hiking, mountain bike and climbing tours, let alone the assortment of ski slopes that make up the world-wide known Dolomiti Superski carousel or the prestigious “Sellaronda“ circuit - a 42-km-long panoramic route that runs around the Sella massif.
Selva and the whole Gardena valley offer an entertaining mountain holiday experience, rich in visits to local traditional farms, noble residences, numerous coffee bars and guest houses. Not to mention the program of daily events that takes place in the town centre of Selva. Don’t miss highlights such as the evening concerts of the local town band, the performances of Santa Cristina and Selva folks dance group, the funny magic shows children can watch in the town square, the delicatessen market that takes place once a week or any of the other countless summer and winter activities.
Hotel Oswald in Selva di Val Gardena is a renowned accommodation for hikers and skiers but even connoisseurs cannot ask for more.
Your holiday adventure starts just outside our hotel door. Owing to its central position, you can easily reach all bus stops and ski lift systems and comfortably set off on amazing tours. Every hiker will find their favourite route in Selva and almost certainly end up in a cosy mountain hut tasting a typical „Speckbrettl“, the delicious Tyrolean-style smoked bacon and ham platter with garnish. And in the winter skiers can count on the hotel’s own shuttle service to transport them to the nearby ski lift systems in Selva.
Don’t miss the chance and get yourself the public transport "Val Gardena Card" in the summer or the skipass Dolomiti Superski in the winter: you’ll find your paradise on earth.
Local habits, warm hospitality, modern equipment, a perfect blend of Mediterranean atmosphere and South Tyrolean originality is what you will experience in our 4-star hotel Oswald in Selva di Val Gardena.
