The pioneers of the Hotel Kabis. In the late 19th Century it housed a lot of Austrian and German pioneer climbers, among them Paul Preuss, Paul Grohmann and Johann Santner who made several first ascents in the Dolomites.

At this time, the Villnöss Valley had been visited mostly by members of the German and Austrian Alpine Associations with the aim to explore the fascinating world of the Dolomite Mountains.

One can be said for sure: the Kabis wasn’t just a home for pioneers, but also the home of pioneers. Since 1844, the reins of the house Kabis have been held by fearless women. At that time it was Rosina Aichholzer who inherited the tavern. Her daughter-in-law, Anna Speckbacher, akin to the Tyrolean freedom fighter Andreas Speckbacher, managed the Kabis afterwards until the day her daughter Maria Tutzer took over the reigns. Today, her daughter Anna Messner Degani still welcomes you at the Kabis. A series of strong women, which lead this house rich of tradition successfully through the years. Today, you will still be welcomed at the Kabis by Maria Tutzer's daughter, Anna Messner-Degani. The famous mountaineer Reinhold Messner is related to the hosts. His Messner Mountain Museums are absolutely worth a visit!

Live yourself the hearty hospitality surrounded by alpine tradition and sincere groundedness.

The Hotel Kabis is both old and new at the same time: With care and appreciation of the original we have renovated the main building and endeavored to create an ambiance for relaxation and holidays in our rooms and to offer culinary delights in our restaurant where tradition and modernity go hand in hand. The authentic flair and the character of the old masonry have been preserved. Taking a walk through the rooms, one can feel the pristine and appealing snugness. The charm of the centuries is breathing in the rustic-modern dining rooms of our house. Masonry and panelled ceilings are evidence of a time when the South Tyrolean tavern culture had its beginnings. A special atmosphere where to relish regional delicacies.

The generations of inkeepers must be thanked for trying to maintain the personality of this building. An authentic place where the inhabitants have been sticking to their way of life. In the “new old” Kabis you will experience simple quality, yet full of affection!
