The first days of November are each year like a lottery: You could get warm and sunny autumn-days or cold and snowy winter-days. As the weather in South Tyrol this year tended very strongly to the second option, my cousin and I went for a short getaway to this beautiful Wellness-Resort in Ridnaun called Gassenhof. We had an amazing suite and the new wellnessarea was simply stunning. We felt immediately home. It was almost always snowing during our stay and we enjoyed staying inside, reading, doing yoga, having lots of tea or going to one of the saunas. Nonetheless it was a must to get out into the fresh snow and to throw some snowballs like the kids do. I can highly recommend this place for anybody looking for some days of rest, because of the great architecture, the delicious food and the very warmhearted staff. We had a very relaxed time and it was good for both of us to slow down a bit before getting back to routine, for my cousin in Zurich and for me in Salzburg. Oh, and all those pics are made by my very talented cousin!
