Holidays in Mairdorf – St Andrä ♥

The Alpine Lodge St Andrä apartment is located on the northern edge of Mairdorf, a small hamlet in St Andrä at Ploseberg, 900 metres above sea level. The house, which contains two other apartments besides the Alpine Lodge St. Andrä, is surrounded by a forest, perched above the meadows of Mairdorf. Views from the house wander over the expanse of the Eisack Valley up to the Rittner Horn at the southern horizon. From the nearby “Guggenbichl” (meaning panoramic hill), one can see the old town of Brixen “from above”.

The Alpine Lodge St Andrä has a central position within the scenic, mountainous Tyrolean region, which can be evidenced by the views of the Zillertal Alps (including the Pfunderer mountains), the Wilde Kreuzspitze (which you will feel close enough to touch), the Weißzint and Hochfeiler (with its eternal glaciers in the north), as well as the beauty of the Sarntaler Alps (with the Schalderer mountains to the west).
