Car(e)-free holidays in South Tyrol

New from 1st January 2023: on arrival at Aparthotel Panorama Living Dolomites, all guests receive a complimentary Gitschberg Jochtal Almencard. This advantage card allows you free and unlimited travel on all local public transport (ski buses included) and free admission to over 80 museums across South Tyrol, as well as the opportunity to participate in the well-rounded activity programme organised by the Gitschberg Jochtal Ski & Holiday.

Small card, great advantages

Public Transportation

The free and unlimited use of regional public transport in South Tyrol is also included in the advantage card Gitschberg Jochtal Almencard. Your car remains parked at the luxury apartment hotel Panorama Living Dolomites during your holiday and you can comfortably use the bus or train. Thanks to the excellent connections provided by the local public transport network, you can walk from your apartment hotel in Meransen/Maranza directly to the station of the cable car, reach the village of Mühlbach/Rio di Pusteria down in the valley within only 6 minutes and conveniently continue from there by bus or train – for free. The mostly small, old and historically interesting cities of Brixen/Bressanone, Bruneck/Brunico, Bozen/Bolzano (the province’s capital) and Sterzing/Vipiteno can be reached from Mühlbach/Rio di Pusteria in a short time and you save yourself the tiresome search for a parking space in the cities.
