The history of our house

Soliman’s tracks

The name “Elephant” is the emblem of our hotel: quality and permanence are the hallmarks of the “Elephant”. Quality in our services, familiar care for our guests and a sense of tradition. The hotel was last sold in 1773 – and has been family-owned ever since. Our history obliges us to take care of the future. The Elephant’s journey is far from over.

Delicious indulgence

Double the joy, double the pleasure

Our restaurants are a stronghold of fine flavours thanks to the highest quality tableware, perfect service and exceptional cuisine – all of this accompanied by the most exquisite wines. Our head chef Mathias Bachmann and his trusted brigade keep our guests happy in both the Elephant Restaurant and the Apostelstube, of which the latter has held a Michelin star since 2019.

“Eating should be a sensory experience that leaves a lasting impression.”

Villa Marzari in the park
A green oasis of relaxation

Villa Marzari is an oasis of tranquillity in the middle of the bustling city. It is located only a few steps away from the main building. Dream and relax in twelve exceptionally quiet rooms and suites that overlook orchards, rose gardens and idyllic gravel paths. Our guests can relax far away from the hustle and bustle, outside the park walls, amidst the lush green of the trees and the brilliant colours of the surrounding flowers.

The cultural capital of Bressanone and its environs

It may not be the provincial capital, but it is still the oldest town in the Tyrolean province. Bursting with numerous cultural-historical buildings and sights, we simply crown our home town as the cultural capital. It is best experienced and explored up close and personal. There is a whole bundle of experiences and attractions just waiting to be visited, not only in Bressanone, but also in its environs.
