In the center of Colle Isarco/Gossensass, a few steps from the main square, the antique Hotel Groebner with its historical building built in 1911 is located. After the second World War, the palace was closed and abandoned later on. In the late 90s it was renovated and expanded with the new adjacent building. The building became a condominium and it was named "Residence Groebner". After a decade, half of the palace was restored as a hotel, but nowadays all the building is only a condominium.
Here you can experience the history in the apartment at the first floor or enjoy the alpine panorama from the balcony of the apartments in the new building.
