I often get asked by guests about the Best Stops on the way to the Dolomites. There are so many good hotels to stay in, however some stand out more than others.
For me, the Hotel Kreuz on Lake Constance has to be the best stop on the way to the Dolomites we have come across so far. We were given the warmest of welcomes.
The hotel is located just 3 km from the shores of Lake Constance and located in Mühlhofen. Great for a boat trip on the lake.
It has 46 rooms all furnished to a very high standard, there is also a roof garden and a sun terrace.
The restaurant serves both regional specialties and international dishes. The hotel bar, which has an excellent wine list, serves some fantastic Bavarian beers.
From Lake Constance it’s easily possible to drive straight to the Dolomites, passing through the stunning Austrian Alps. Once Innsbruck is reached a drive along the Brenner Pass takes you into Val Gardena, views of the majestic Dolomites open up ahead.
