Your best slowdown

It is true that scenic views will calm one’s soul, and here we are exposed to beautiful panoramas right from the start. The effect of living on slopes that spread out over the valley and face the sun is always the "slowdown effect". When we change perspective and become aware of the vastness of the horizon, we instantly feel the freedom of being.

Slowdown value: Sunny hillside with vineyards

The village of Kranebitt will charm you from the moment you arrive. From Bressanone, you quickly climb a winding road up a sunny hillside and find yourself amidst verdant vines. The carefully cultivated slopes never cease to amaze with their beauty and dedication to nature demonstrated by the people that work here. One thing is for sure: a nature so cherished really is paradise on earth.

Slowdown value: Landscape architecture

Here, the architecture blends with nature. The hotel is thoughtfully integrated into the natural environment and mimics the characteristics of vines resting on wooden plinths. Sustainable building practices have been incorporated into this new concept. The roof is overgrown with grass and turned into a Panoramic Rooftop Terrace, where the view opens to distant horizons and calms the mind.

The plants that decorate the balconies also contribute much to the sense of intimacy, and the relaxing green palette of the building and keep the temperatures down during the summer.


"In the midst of our vineyard, you will find 18 new rooms. An inebriating view among verdant, curling vines, the majestic mountains, and Bressanone."   HALLER

"Life is not a balance, but the beauty of a constant interplay of activity and calming of the mind."

"Bathroom needs natural daylight. The experience of a bathroom with abundant sunlight is priceless, therefore we have designed the rooms to function as sustainably as possible and as a result, use as little artificial light as possible. "

Slowdown value: Winter sun. Open spaces and daylight

Sunlight gives us strength and guides us. It gently wakes us up in the morning no matter the season, and signals the end of the day in the evening as the last ray of the sun disappears, reminding us that according to natural biorhythm, it is time to rest and regenerate.

Healthy and succulent grapes have the same conditions as humans do, and the designers of the resort have taken this into consideration when planning the layout of the hotel. All the rooms face the sun and are designed to allow the guests to take full advantage of the daylight in every corner and the room, including the bathroom, for as long as possible.




" We do not have additional light on balconies in the evening, as insects also have a biorhythm and need to sleep. Therefore, we do not over-illuminate exterior facades because we respect the natural space of the insects, which is important for growing our natural crops."

Slowdown value: Blending lifestyle

Theresa is a young hotel owner who is pouring her passion into the revamped Haller family's hospitality concept. She blends tradition, wherein the "slowdown" approach to life lies, with the modern art of living, creating a combination of work and rest that is all her own.

"I find it hard to switch off my creativity and the ideas that come to me on the spur of the moment, so I don't bother and don't look for distractions, here the environment offers spontaneity, a natural relaxation, where you let your thoughts run free and even though the surroundings stimulate and inspire you, moments in the day or a walk in the vineyard calm you down and relax you."

Slowdown value: Vineyard wellness

We rarely realize that cultivated nature also provides a plethora of options for relaxation and unique wellness. The terraced vineyards are perfect for a walk and to let your mind wander. Due to their placement on the hillside, the vineyards are pleasantly breezy and offer pleasant refuge from the heat.


"This winter, an addition to the Haller Suites is a barrel-shaped rooftop sauna. From the sauna, you will have a view over the city, which in the evening looks like the sky is reflected on the surface."

Slowdown value: Levin's AO natural food

Food and wine also make for a wellness experience, and Haller has the perfect combination. Here, evenings are dedicated to culinary delights and savouring a glass of selected local wine, sourced from local vineyards.


The rich flavours, thoughtful textures and visual appearance of the tableware stimulate all the senses. The AO restaurant will convince you with natural flavours and delight you with a combination of seemingly simple ingredients mixed in a cocktail of sophisticated tastes.

For Levin, the head chef of the AO restaurant, the origin of food is of paramount importance. The knowledge and perseverance invested in planting, nurturing, and harvesting the first fragrant and fresh fruits are the keys to delicious and healthy food.

Slowdown value: Reset yourself on the white slopes of Mountain Plose

When your "slowdown" plan is not only skiing but enjoying a diverse vacation in a slow way of living, then Haller Suites is a beautiful way to enjoy winter at ease. Knowing that the vineyards are usually positioned on sunny slopes one can expect to switch grey and foggy town to a place flooded with sun, as even in the winter they enjoy plenty of sun.


So perhaps stay near the town, but also enjoy an ultimate winter experience by skiing on the modern, wide, and long slopes of Plose Mountain.  

In the morning they offer a shuttle ride to the bottom of the Plose ski area and also pick you up afterwards. This is their sustainable addition to their concept and also to offer you a "slow & easy" experience to enjoy all winter options their region is offering you.

Let your mind wander down the slope to the valley, towards the town, feel the ground beneath your feet and feel the moment.

Haller Suites is perhaps not the first hotel you think of when going skiing, but in terms of a "Slowdown" lifestyle, you might rethink it.  It's a real slowdown experience of staying on the sunny side of the winter and at the same time skiing the Plose mountain surrounded by the beauty of the Odle group mountains. They also offer a shuttle to take you to the ski resort and pick you up afterward.

Slowdown value: Walk to the town

The location of Haller is unique: at the same time, it allows you to escape to the hillside to get away from the hustle and bustle, or to take a short walk to the old town of Bressanone, which is situated at the foot of the valley. The town stands out with a very relaxed way of life, where it's easy to blend in with the locals and enjoy authentic Italian coffee.

Slowdown value: The wine

The uniqueness of Haller is certainly evident in their winemaking tradition. Haller grows two varieties of white wine, Silvaner, and Kerner, on its stretch of sunny slopes. In cooperation with their neighboring wineries, they produce a small quantity of wine to meet their own needs. The restaurant also offers other wines from neighboring wineries, which can be seen from their terrace and tasted at dinner in their AO Restaurant.
