“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

Spending our childhood exploring the woods nearby our house, we learned about plants and their tastes, textures and uses from a young age. We were intrigued by the flora surrounding us, and were curious to understand the differences between various plants and fungi.

Always inquisitive, Heinrich would bring home plants he had picked on his adventures, and ask his mother if they could cook them or do something with them. Often, these plants would turn out to traditional healing plants that even Heinrich’s grandmother used to prepare. He was fascinated by this, and became so passionate about it, that he wanted to showcase it to the world through his cooking. This is how he fell in love with naturally-grown ingredients. Heinrich has now been working with wild herbs for over 20 years. He is also trained as a herbalist and took a mycology diploma.
For us, respect for nature is not just a fashion phenomenon, it is part of our daily lives. Therefore we only use organic meat, even if we cook for our team.
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.
