In the gardens of the Rungghof time and daily life disappear in the bat of an eyelid!

Sit in the shade under the trees, savour every moment, let your mind wander …

Especially in the mild summer evenings our panoramic garden invites you to spend pleasant moments in the company of a glass of cold beer or a glass of esteemed wine and tasty culinary delicacies. Here you can sit under the Majestic trees, enjoy the enchanting panorama and spend moments of pure pleasure.

The palm garden, situated in the internal court yard of the Rungghof, owes its name to the two ancient fanned palm trees which have their own story to tell. But what renders the palm garden so special is the centuries old grapevines which completely cover the internal court yard offering a pleasing coolness in the hot summer days. Sitting under the roof of leaves with a glass of wine in hand … A true delight, beaten only by the culinary delicacies prepared first class by the 3-toque-chef Manuel in his kitchen. Try it to believe it!

Grandfather Franz Mauracher narrates...

The story of the palm trees of the Rungger marriage

“Contrary to what you think at first sight, the smallest palm tree is the oldest. Originally it was one of two specimens, planted in vases, received as a gift for my grandparents for their marriage (around 1888-1889). For years the palm trees were maintained in the vases and for this reason their growth was slow. They adorned in turn the family tomb in the cemetery and our family’s house in Cornaiano. My father transplanted the palm trees in the internal court yard of the Rungghof, protected from the wind. One of the two died over the years and was substituted with a palm tree which today is bigger than that of the marriage. If however you confront the trunks of the two palm trees, you can observe that the stigmas of the leaves which have fallen around the trunk of the marriage palm tree are much thicker, therefore the palm tree must be much older.” Since after the war the marriage palm tree has seen generations of guests of the hotel and inn come and go and still today watches the fate of the Rungghof with it’s fanned out leaves.
