“We are following in the footsteps of our parents who so loved these mountains”
Maitres de Maison - Gisela and Heinrich Schneider - View profile
This sleek, modern building, perched at an altitude of 1 622 metres, almost takes a back seat to the magnificence of the landscape. Yet, inside, its beauty is apparent: tree trunks, raw timber and light colours make for a resolutely contemporary style, from its large guest rooms to its superb dining room which is fully glazed, light-drenched and offers panoramic views of the Dolomites – the perfect setting to savour Heinrich Schneider’s refined cuisine, prepared with ingredients from the South Tyrol. His sister, Gisela, a sommelier, is the other half of the partnership at the helm of this property which was created by their parents and has recently been refurbished.

Discover the hotel

At the top of the mountain, the Terra - The Magic Place gives an amazing view of the Dolomites. It's like living in a huge apartment, but with the benefits of staff and a kitchen. Gisela and Heinrich Schneider have lovingly set up 8 rooms and 2 suites. Design and character emanate from the whole house. While their guests unwind in the well-being area, Heinrich Schneider picks the herbs which will season the dinner menu at Terra, the highest starred restaurant in Italy. Finish the day in front of the fire, or listening to the wonderful silence during an evening walk beneath an enchanting starry sky. Terra - The Magic Place isn't a simple hotel, but rather a remarkable place for food lovers, those who like to enjoy themselves, wine enthusiasts, people travelling alone, explorers, the curious...

Our commitments

For over 1000 years Tyrolean Grey cows have grazed on the Italian and Austrian alpine pastures. Auener Hof now stands to protect them from extinction.  

It was unthinkable for this property to allow a breed to disappear; a breed whose milk is used for exceptional butter, cheeses and yoghurt, and whose meat is delicious. So Terra - The Magic Place decided to join forces with local farmers and create a haven for these grey cows. In order to protect wild herbs and vegetables, they teamed up with the Laimburg Research Center for Agriculture and Forestry. At 1622m above sea level, with a challenging climate, the property has taken significant measures to reduce its energy consumption: wood pellet heating, triple glazing, roof insulation and local hydro-electricity.
