„Passion for Nature“
In a unique
Are you looking for wide landscapes, rich colours, a timeless ambiance, and alpine flair? Yet, you don’t wish to give up comfort and amenities during your cabin vacation? Then an alpine holiday at the Lodge Oberhauserhütte at 1,730 m is the perfect choice for you!
Here, amidst the picturesque environment of the Rodengo-Luson Alp, you will not only find culinary highlights and a diverse, alpine leisure program, but also the extraordinary panorama of the South Tyrolean mountain world. From one of our rooms or from a romantic suite, you may admire the idyllic views of spacious alpine meadows, rugged rocky landscapes, green forests, and the high mountain peaks of the Dolomites.
Our mountain lodge in South Tyrol is surrounded by pristine nature. Nevertheless, in only 30 minutes you may reach the cultural city of Bressanone, where once the bishops resided. There are medieval streets, and many shops – and in the winter the original South Tyrolean Christmas market invites you for shopping and strolling.
Nearby, you will find the church and chapel village Luson, which was once a medieval court. Also, the historic hamlet of Rodengo with its Castle Rodenegg is certainly worth a visit. The small village exudes an air of ancient times, and the castle is still owned by the families Von Wolkenstein and Thurn und Taxis. It is one of the strongest and largest fortified castles of its time and can be visited.
By the way, you may easily reach our Lodge Oberhauserhütte with our private shuttle. You don’t need to use your car during your holiday and may discover our beautiful region by public transport. If you arrive with your own car, we will of course provide you with a free parking space for the duration of your stay.

The peak Cima Lasta & the Alps in the winter

The Rodengo Alp and the Luson Alp enchant winter hikers and active vacationers with a unique play of light in the snow. The Cima Lasta, which you may hike on snowshoes in the winter, offers a magnificent panorama of the Dolomites with the Sas de Putia, Mount Sciliar, and the Odle Peaks. From our lodge, you can set off directly with your snowshoes and roam the pristine and snow-covered forests and meadows.
