Events & festivals at the Hotel Platz in Val Gardena
We love celebrating with you!!
The Hotel Platz is in an ideal location, conveniently close to both Castelrotto and Ortisei. These towns hold a variety of splendid events throughout the year! So when you stay with us, you’re always within easy reach of an enjoyable spectacle. Two really special annual events are the Spring Race on the Seceda during March, and the Ski World Cup downhill competition at San Cristina. We at the Hotel Platz regularly take part in the Spring Race, and try our best to win. It’s best to wear cheerful, comfortable clothing, because we’ll be celebrating, laughing and dancing till the early hours of the morning.
Every summer, at the end of August, we stage the legendary Almtanz (a traditional dance) here at the Hotel Platz. In October, the famous Kastelruther Spatzen Festival takes place in Castelrotto, home to South Tyrol’s well-known folk music band. The locals have a chance to meet our guests from all over the world, and some real friendships are made over a glass of wine.
The Oswald von Wolkenstein Ride in the Sciliar area is also very popular. You can watch the horseback tournaments live on site and enjoy a social evening afterwards.
On special occasions such as the August Bank Holiday, Christmas, New Year and Carnival time, we always try to offer you something different. Our regular guests always look forward to these enjoyable occasions, whether it’s a firework display, a Swedish fire torch, or an aperitif on our scenic terrace.

Highlight: we love aprés ski here at the Hotel Platz! To prove the point, there’s a barely visible entrance in the floor of our stube that takes you down to the tavern: our traditional party venue!
