Shortly behind Meran, in Riffan, lies Pepi Hofer's commercial building. Cleverly integrated into the underground parking, Pepi Hofer combines the two HKA 45 plants from Spanner Re² GmbH with a hopper for delivered wood chips and the storage hopper with built-in push floor and transverse auger discharge. There is actually not much to see in the basement of the building except for the integrated plant room. Another short glance into the storage hopper filled with wood chips - and that was it...
Run by the Mühlmann family, the 155-bed Leitlhof is one of the few hotel properties in Europe to be completely self-sufficient in terms of energy, producing and using its own energy effectively and efficiently. The Leitlhof has set itself the task of taking action here and producing electricity and heat independently and in a climate-neutral manner using woodchips. The short distances involved mean the woodchip production process is also environmentally-friendly.
Its focus has been on wellness since the inception of its beauty & health facility, offering guests a wide range of services including a large indoor pool with swimming machines, massage jets and fizzing water.
