was born on the 15th of January 2013. A new sunshine is shining at the Glinzhof-Sky.
In winter, when the bottom is hidden in the valley the sun set behind the mountains up here, we are still treated to pleasant sunshine. In summer it is with us a few degrees cooler than down in the valley. The ski circus of the Kronplatz can be reached in about 25 minutes. The well-known ski resort Cortina d’Ampezzo can be reached in about 45 minutes.
Our most important property is the rest and the peace far away from the usual everyday life. Cozy little places all around our farm offer enough space and time to let the soul dangle.
We have hospitality in our blood! In natural kind and always helpfully we try to give to every guest a home on time. The work with our guests and friends prepares big satisfaction for us. The biggest satisfaction for us is if we may see the change of our guests.
Quite often people come as a physical and mental “wreck” to the Glinzhof. Then in the course of the vacation one sees from day to day like the accumulator is charged again.
Our environment is our highest property.
The ecologically friendly power production on the Glinzhof was always a quite central subject. On Glinzhof we produce far more energy than we need themselves. The excess electricity is fed into the grid. We contribute to a CO2-neutral future.
- Solar panels for producing hot water
- PV system to generate electricity
- Wood gas cogeneration to produce electricity and heat

Chronicle of the court
The Glinzhof was mentioned in the year 1,500 for the first time in a document
Precipitous meadows and hardly accessible woods made the survival on 1.500 m above sea level on the daily life tasks. In the post-war period a whole generation immigrated up to our father Jakob into a “better” life. Only because of the infinite love to„ Hamatl“ Jakob remained at the court.
In the mineral water factory “Kaiserwasser” he earned some extra money around the small court in the sunny mountain Innichberg. The way to the workplace and to Candidowas laborious also. Step by step about the old Kirchweg the footpath often also had to be mastered several times daily.
Then in 1972 a court entrance was built by Candido up. Only now Father Jacob saw a real future.
A fresh wind is moving into the old and quite poor farm. Mother Maria was a cook in a prestigious 4-star hotel in Val Badia. The learned has become a passion, she also wanted to continue to live high up in San Candido. As a driving force in the court she animated father Jacob to install a sink for fluent water in the “Gitschenkammer” and the “middle room”. Today Room N. 1 + 2. With a lot of idealism she started to rent room to vacationer. At that time (1974) Glinzhof was the only mountain farm in South Tyrol that rented out their rooms.
1975 & 1976
the children Manfred and Angelika are born. From year to year the Glinzhof is redeveloped and adapted over and over again to the modern claims of the guests. The max. number of 6 guest-rooms was soon reached. Father Jakob falls ill and must die in 2000. Manfred takes over the parental court at the age of 18 years (!). With new swing, a lot of courage and a common sense one awaits on the Glinzhof glittering times.
a solar system is built for heating water.
stable and barn are new built. The agriculture should remain furthermore the foundation of the court. On the roof the first photovoltaic system is installed in San Candido and produces 30 kW of electricity.

Installation of a modern wood chip plant to the ecologically friendly power production.
our dear mother Maria passes away after short illness. A shock for the court and many of grown fond guests.

The philosophy at Glinzhof
The perfume of a rose
Have you ever tried to describe the smell of a rose in the South Tyrolean mountains with words?
You have to smell the flower itself to know what was allowed to learn the fine nose.
What is the mountain farm “Glinzhof”?
Primarily a place for well-being, for relaxing, high over the Dolomites at 1,500 meters above sea level. Everything which makes a farm so cosy was implemented and united with the comfort of today’s time. To be here means a revival of the senses, a reduction on the substantial.
You smell the hay, enjoy the sunny landscape and feel the pure mountain air. Here you will find the peace, which is often lost in the everyday life. Also you can taste products, which are produced by the local farmers.
Here you can simply be a human-being.
