Your hotel in Vent:
with genuine love for nature in all we do
Our hotel in Vent. A dream spot amidst pristine, unspoilt nature, filled with passion for the high mountains. In a mountaineering village at 1,900 metres above sea level that exudes a feeling of freedom and peace. A place that’s both a destination and a starting point. Authentic, warm, and grounded in tradition. Because we love nothing more than sharing our love for the Ötztal mountains with you.

If you enjoy being active and love nothing more than spending your days out in the high mountains, our hotel in the Ötztal Alps is the perfect base camp. That’s because, alongside the wealth of mountain experiences, you’ll also find moments filled with indulgence and relaxation. At Die Post, our restaurant in Vent, chef de cuisine Anna Pirpamer pampers you with creative, regional, and seasonal delicacies, while our sauna village and little mountain lake – as we lovingly call our indoor pool made of Ötztal granite – at our spa hotel in Ötztal treat you to deep-reaching well-being and new energy.
Our long tradition of hospitality
We’ve been welcoming guests here at our hotel in Vent for many years – since 1728, to be more precise, when the “Weinhof” was mentioned as a “Würthstaferne” (guesthouse or tavern) in a land register excerpt from Schlanders in South Tyrol. But its roots can be traced back even further, because the “Weinhof” was mentioned for the first time in written form in 1337, as one of four farmhouses in Vent. In 1867, it was then referred to in a travel account as a guesthouse in “Fend” (Vent) belonging to Johann Tappeiner – a direct ancestor of later owner Karolina Pirpamer, whose maiden name was Tappeiner. When the summer post office was opened in the Tappeiner guesthouse in 1903, the name was changed to “Gasthof Post”. Even a devastating fire on 4 August 1951 couldn’t stop the success story of our hotel in Vent: Alois and Karolina Pirpamer, the owners at that time, began rebuilding that same year. Finally, various renovation works carried out over the last decades and the handover to the next generation around Caroline and Gerhard with their sons Josef and Leonhard have seen Natur- & Alpinhotel Post transform into a 4-star hotel in Vent offering every comfort and exceptional service.
