The juicy hay for our hay baths comes from the unfertilised meadows surrounding Marmot Hut (Murmeltierhütte) below Plattkofel Mountain. The 4.5 ha large area at 2,132 m of altitude is cut only once during the blossoming period (from the middle of July to the start of August). The careful drying process and storage in the hay barn at the hotel guarantees the high quality of our house and our hay baths.
Alpine hay contains more than 40 different types of grass and flowers over an area of 50 m². This Dolomite hay is extra fatty and contains leaf plants like lady's mantle, noble herbs, arnica, valerian, couch grass, ryegrass and fescue, which are responsible for the effect of the bath.
