The Hotel Ansitz Plantitscherhof is a wonderful 5 stars hotel located in a residential area of Maia Alta, a 15-minute walk from the center of Merano. For decades the hotel has been family run; ten years ago, Margit and Johannes Gufler took over management of the hotel. Today, it has become a modern hotel, developed around a historic core, where guests are always in the spotlight and can share their passions with the homeowners.
The Hotel has become an ideal destination for those looking for a vacation surrounded by nature and culture or for an active vacation. The wide variety of offerings in this Hotel is what makes it so attractive.
This property is the first hotel in Trentino-South Tyrol dedicated to vintage car aficionados, one of owner Johannes Gufler’s great passions. This elegant property offers its own vintage cars and a comprehensive program of activities/offerings around the theme, such as a cocktail bar in the garage to admire the cars, or the panoramic picnic tour and the wine tasting tour (both with a Historical VW Bulli). Johannes is also the organizer of four yearly guided tours in vintage cars, the Meran Classics, in which owners and lovers of vintage cars can participate.
In addition to gourmet cuisine with creative culinary creations at the Ansitz Plantitscherhof hotel, you can also enjoy great wines. The hotel has three private cellars where over 23,000 bottles of quality national and international wines are kept. The oldest wine cellar dates back to 1277, where there are some of the 7 caveaus that can be rented to keep one’s own wine collection.
These are but a few of the unique and special things to explore. Beginning last year the hotel now offers something truly exclusive: a suite under the sky, an oasis above the roofs of Meran. This outdoor suite is perfect for enjoying a few hours of afternoon relaxation with your partner or a romantic night under the stars, accompanied by a delicious finger food dinner, and being awakened by the first rays of the sun in the morning.
In 2018 the hotel was renewed. New suites have been created, the Suite Penthouse with private sauna and infinity pool and the wellness suite with private sauna; heated outdoor pool, a spacious restaurant with possibility to eat outdoor thanks to the mobile glass roof, Oldtimer lounge, lounge dedicated to the vintage cars; an underground garage on two floors with private box for the bikes, new garden with bonfire areas; a new kitchen; a new buffet area and a convenient tunnel connecting the main hotel structure and the adjacent one.

The hotel’s history dates back to 1277, when it was first named in a document entitled "Weinberg in Planitz". The farm continues to be handed-down for generations until it becomes the property of Antonnie and Josef Gufler, the grandparents of today's owners. Since 1968, they have been offering vacation rentals. In 1978, under the direction of Hildegard and Hermann Gufler, the parents of the current owners, the farm is turned into a small lodge, which also offered breakfast. The establishment then grew, becoming a 4 star hotel inaugurated in 1996. In 2006, the current owners, Margit and Johannes Gufler, begin renovations and additions that transform the structure into its current status as a 4 star superior hotel. Despite its recent changes, the establishment has never lost its ancient charm, its historical core, or its many corners and spaces filled with history.
