The Ortler is situated in the quaint village of S. Valentino/St. Valentin beneath the imposing Schlern mountain massif, which is part of the UNESCO Dolomites. We belong to the Castelrotto/Kastelruth municipal district that includes the internationally renowned Seiser Alm high mountain plateau – the largest in Europe. Thanks to our location, the Ortler makes an ideal point of departure for fun holidays in South Tyrol!
