The Hotel Turm is made up of three separate towers each with its own distinctive style: namely the old tower, the Kraiterhaus with its round tower, the newly-built Eulenturm, or ‘Owl Tower’ and the Wagenhaus, or ‘coach house’. Kathi and Stephan Pramstrahler are the third generation to run the Turm. Every day they try to be good parents to their three children Sebastian, Maximilian and Magdalena and, at the same time, to do their very best for the guests at the Romantik Hotel Turm
At the Hotel Turm no two rooms are alike and each has its own characteristics and benefits, but they all have something in common: they have been individually andlovingly designed with great attention to detail to offer guests an extraordinary atmosphere.
The suites on the top floor of the main tower and the ‘owl’ tower are especially inviting: from there you can enjoy a panoramic view of the Eisacktal Valley and its mountains.
In the corridors of the Hotel and also in rooms the pictures hanging are part of the owners’ personal art collection

Karl Prahmstrahler has, over the years, assembled quite an impressive collection of about 2000 oil paintings, watercolour paintings and lithographs. Needless to say there is not enough space on the walls of the hotel to hang them all.
Karl was also a very dedicated sponsor of yet unknown artists and young talents and from the 1st of June 2005 the art gallery is open and one artist per month can show his works.
Between the 13th century walls of the Grottnerhofs, we wanted to retain and highlight the same time, that which is a 800 year old tradition. Nevertheless, we also added modern design elements which were partially designed by ourselves. The uniqueness of the closed wine court, which is a listed building, is highlighted by the presence of only two suites. Renovated under strict supervision, you will find elements of modern design in old walls that tell of a time in the 13th century, such as the “Selchküche” with its ceiling dyed black from the smoke of the fires and still functional working oven, or the authentic farmhouse. In the cellar you will still find those old wine barrels that date back to an earlier time. The Grottnerhof is located 450 m above sea level and therefore to reach it you have to descend from Völs (900 m) towards the Eisacktal Valley.
