The rich history of the hotel

Built around 1500, the hotel has been family-owned since 1773 and has since continually adapted to reflect changing tourism patterns.

What started as a simple hostel has developed over the years into one of South Tyrol’s most renowned hotels. Today, the Hotel Elephant is an important part of European travel culture as well as being an enduring symbol of Tyrolean tourism. 

To sum up, the Hotel Elephant is a hotel which exudes history and hospitality, a place which welcomes its guests in a unique, very individual manner.
