leitlhof 10Energy self-sufficient hotel with wood

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 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 wood chips. The short distances involved mean the woodchip production process is also environmentally-friendly.

Hotel Leitlhof offers guests total relaxation, aided by recreational areas, indoor pool with panoramic views, heated open-air pool with briny spring water, Jacuzzi, swimming machine, waterfall and luxury showers at a wellness facility spanning some 2000 sq m.

The 4-star superior Leitlhof hotel in Innichen lies in the heart of the magnificent alpine setting of the South Tyrolean Dolomites.
