Hotel dog Liselotte enthuses: “What a diverse region the Ötztal is! The lush green meadow fragrances between the rugged peaks entice you on cosy walks and wonderful adventures. On mountain and valley hikes, passing roaring waterfalls where you suddenly realise what it’s like to be free. And not forgetting the alpine pasture refreshments with Tyrolean ham, hmmmmmmmm."
The range of excursions around the Ritzlerhof is almost unlimited. And your dog can really come anywhere you want, while hiking, biking or just enjoying yourself. Nobody misses out here. A gentle forest path right behind our hotel leads to a true natural gem in Ötztal – the Piburger lake. Swimming is a delight for the soul of mum, dad and doggy in the warmest natural bathing lake in Tyrol. Our Liselotte loves playing in the deep green water there.
Numerous nature highlights such as the Wellerbrücke bridge, the Seejöchl vantage point, the Achstürze protected natural landscape area and not forgetting the many culinary stop-offs, such as the Seehäusl Guest House, await you on your hikes around our hotel.
The Hotel Ritzlerhof is also a nature park member. So take advantage of the free guided hikes that are on offer daily and discover the Ötztal through different eyes.
The Ritzlerhof is a dog-friendly hotel and our standards were clear from the beginning: Unlike hotels that welcome dogs “On request”, we, being long time dog owners ourselves, take a comprehensive approach. Dogs are actually very welcome at the Hotel Ritzlerhof and are greeted with many extras such as doggy bed, bowl and treats.
We deliberately decided to spoil dogs especially. At the same time, it is very important for us to point out that we are not a dog hotel. In order to make the coexistence of guests and dogs as pleasant as possible, there are also certain rules that we have summarized in Lisi's dog guide:
The Ritzlerhof team is looking forward to spoiling you and your companion with us - in this sense a hearty Wuf, Wuf
If you want to spend your holiday with your four-legged friends, please note the following:
1. There are rooms available for dog escorts in all categories - but we must already know at the time of booking if you want to travel with dog to make sure that you get a suitable room (allergy sufferers). The cost of additional cleaning will be charged at Euro 14.90 per dog per night.
2. At the same time we take a maximum of 8 dogs (depending on size) with us to ensure the tranquility of the guests - call best on 0043 5252 62 68 and ask if the desired travel period is still free.
3. You are welcome to take your friend to dinner - we will provide you with a table in our bar or, if available, in our à la carte restaurant "Furmenta" (dogs are not allowed in the hotel restaurant for hygiene reasons).
Does your four-legged friend like to be spoiled? How about a visit to the Ötztal dog grooming salon and a round of dog care Tyrolean style? Liselotte is convinced: "A little beauty makes every dog's fur happy and contributes to the shine."
